This is OK - if it's true what they say about logs, etc. The issues are that there are hardly any servers to connect to (which I could be good with), but it's not good at getting around restrictions, such as some public "guest" networks. Before someone yells "user error", other VPN's do, in my experience.

In the old version of the app, as soon as I open the app, I could just press the ENTER button on the keyboard to connect to the VPN (I use a PC keyboard on my Android device). It was very fast and convenient. However, on the latest new version of RiseUp VPN for Android, it no longer connects if I press ENTER as soon as I open the app, instead opens the menu instead. I have to select the DOWN ARROW on the keyboard to select the connect button, then I could press ENTER to connect. Please fix!

Used to work without issue and now unfortunately cannot connect at all. Updating certificate when prompted doesn't actually update, just sends into a loading loop with no resolution. Shows key icon in upper notification bar while in loading loop and prevents any connectivity at all. Will wait up to 20 minutes, still no connection. Haven't been able to connect at all for several months now.
