Encrypt.me on iOS

I’ve been having issues with Encrypt.me drops the vpn connection on my iPhone X% (ios14) even though I am actively streaming music over the cell connection. The company where I work limits/prevents streaming over wifi, so I have to use my cell connection for music.

I’ve contacted Encrypt.me support, this is their reply:

"So this is inline with how we use a VPN on a mobile phone, in that the sessions are usually shorter than a session on a laptop or a desktop, because we pick up the phone, use it for a few minutes usually and put it down. The VPN cannot stay connected for too long when the phone is turned off, in the not being used state, "

This is unbelievable. If a client cannot keep a secure connection secure, then it is totally useless.

Check out ExpressVPN. I’ve left it running for days on my iPad.

Likewise Global Protect.

Yeah, I use Global Protect for work connections on my Macs, iPad, and iPhone and it stays up for weeks on the iDevices (that client reconnects automatically).

One appealing aspect of Encrypt.me is that it runs on iOS, MacOS, and iPad.

So do almost all other VPN services.
I use NordVPN, and I could not stop a session even if I tried :joy:
