  1. Does anyone have an update on Proton VPN? I’ve been using the paid version of Speedify the past year as a backup to AirVPN and am very interested in trying Proton’s VPN Plus service. I would love to get input from the most tech savvy here as to whether the cautionary anecdotes in this thread are still applicable. Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.
  2. OpenVPN app has now been updated from version 1.2.5 to 1.2.6. Perhaps this fixes the disconnection issues.
  3. I was cautiously optimistic there for a bit... but it doesn’t work for me. Does anyone recommend Private Tunnel VPN or the Speedify app mentioned above?
  4. Scroll down to read the post by “seanob”. https://forums.openvpn.net/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=25587 It seems there may be a temporary workaround to getting a stable connection to an AirVPN server by going directly to the OpenVPN app and connecting from there. I’m tryinig it now but it’s much too soon to verify if it works.
  5. I’m still having the same problem on my 2 Apple devices, but not my iMac or Samsung tablet. I’m beginning to think Zhang may not be accurate on this by saying it’s not OpenVPN app’s fault. http://speedify.com/blog/how-to/fix-vpn-disconnect-iphone/
  6. THANK YOU! Just one more good reason to subscribe to AirVPN.
  7. Update-- I've discovered that my Samsung Galaxy Tab S and iMac Desktop DO NOT get disconnected from AirVPN; just my iPad Mini 3 and iPhone SE. The disconnections seem less frequent compared to a few days ago, but they're still happening.
  8. Zhang— Thank you for your response. I just finished talking with a customer service rep from Charter Spectrum and she assured me they have not made ANY changes in their internet service. Spectrum doesn’t interfere with the use of a vpn; has not placed any limits or restrictions on bandwidth. Supposedly, everything is exactly the way it was before net neutrality was ended. I keep my devices fully charged at all times so I’m not sure how or why iOS would send the Open VPN Connect app to sleep to save on the battery.
  9. A disturbing update..... I decided to delete the Open VPN Connect app and start from scratch. I downloaded the app again from the Apple App Store, then came here to set up the config generator. When i attempted to import the first profile an alert popped up on the screen which said: “OpenVPN” Would Like to Add VPN Configurations All network activity on this iPhone may be filtered or monitored when using VPN. Allow Don’t Allow WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON??!! “FILTERED OR MONITORED”??!! Seriously...... what is this crazy shit about?! What’s the point of using the Open VPN Connect app if the network activity on my devices “may be filtered or monitored when using VPN”? Obivously I’m not very tech knowledgable as I have admitted before here in the forum. Perhaps I’m missing something that’s readily apparent to others. If so, I sure would love to know what it is. By the way...... My VPN connection keeps getting disconnected, though it hasn’t happened since I’ve been logged in here at AirVPN in the time it has taken me to post this update.
  10. NaDre— I have already noticed a few occasions of slow speeds since the end of net neutrality. My ISP is Spectrum (Charter). Maybe it was just coincidence when I noticed the slow speeds, I really don’t know. I have a bad feeling nothing good is gonna come out of the end of net neutrality rammed through by Idjit Pie. Perhpas congress will feel enough pressure to reverse the decision but I’m not counting on it. Zhang— Could you please clarify this statement? I opened a new topic in the Troubleshooting part of the forum about repeated disconnections with AirVPN.
  11. Greetings to all. It’s been awhile since I was last here. An extremely annoying and worrisome problem has popped up and I have no idea what’s going on or what to do about it. (Perhaps this is something others are starting to experience in these times of post net neutrality.) My Air VPN connection keeps dropping out after only a few minutes. It’s happening on my iPad Mini 3 and my iPhone SE. I can reconnect either to a U.S. server or to any other country and the result is the same— a disconnection after just a few minutes. (I just noticed that I’ve not had a VPN interruption in the 10 minutes or so I’ve been logged in here at Air VPN.) The strange thing is that it seems to happen mostly when I’m just web surfing. It’s almost as if my ISP (Charter/Spectrum) detects I’m using a VPN and is disconnecting me. Suggestions? Solutions? Is anyone else experiencing something similar?
  12. Update on Onion Browser for iOS: Protonmail recommended the following settings. Active Content Blocking-- "Allow All (DANGEROUS)"; Cookies-- "Block Third-Party"; User-Agent Spoofing-- "Normalized iPad (iOS Safari)"; Do Not Track (DNT) Header-- "Tell Websites Not To Track"; Minimum SSL/TLS Protocol-- "TLS 1.0+". These settings now allow me to successfully log in to my Protonmail account. But, is there reason for concern that you must set Active Content Blocking to "Allow All (DANGEROUS)"?
  13. Khariz-- Do you know if there are any TOR or TOR based browsers for iOS worth investigating?
  14. I'm not necessarily positive and optimistic by nature. Having said that, I'm not convinced this will be the humanitarian disaster some think it could be. Think about it-- If you could go back in time say, a hundred years ago, and told people in the most general terms about computers and the internet, I think it's safe to assume that most if not all would be pretty freaked out. (Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" was rooted in fear of technology and the negative use of such.) The point is that technology, and its inevitable advancement, isn't inherently a bad thing. It always comes down to the intent and purpose it's used for.
  15. victorab-- The VPN may be free for Visionary account customers to try, but the subscription fee at that level is 24 Euros a month.
