Mediocre, not super dependable. Will we get a beneficial update soon?
The updates seem to never really solve the biggest problems. This app, which I have paid for the last two years, frequently drops the connection to the server and does not reconnect. It doesn’t notify you either. I suddenly realize on public WiFi or at home that suddenly I’m no longer connected to my VPN. Happens during active use or idle periods. Additionally, every couple weeks or so it will say that it has to reinstall the VPN profile out of the blue. Closing the app and relaunching sometimes fixes this. Very annoying especially when your connection is no longer secure. Sometimes it asks to reinstall the VPN profile back to back to back even with a reboot of my phone. IPhone 10 and 6+ have identical problems running this app. I’m going to start looking for a better VPN service before my next years payment. Time to do some homework and hope to not deal with the same frustration with other providers. I’m even willing to pay significantly more elsewhere just not to be frustrated so often. I have other apps from Avast that work flawlessly so why can’t they get it together with SecureLine?
Good app but needs tweaks
I have ATT internet but am switching to Spectrum. No problem using VPN app while I was an ATT subscriber. Instead of an ATT modem-router combo, I bought my own router to go with the Spectrum modem to avoid rental fees. That is where my troubles began. I could not get the Netgear app to work on my iPad and one suggestion was that VPN could interfere. I ended up switching to a Linksys router. I was able to connect the Linksys app after setting up my account on my laptop, but my internet connection became a problem. I kept getting disconnected. So, I deleted the Avast VPN app on one iPad. No problem connecting on that one. Since I still have ATT, I connected to the internet on my other iPad using ATT and went into the Avast app. I disconnected the “connect automatically when not on a trusted network” feature and was able to connect to the internet again. Then I decided to add the Linksys router to my trusted networks. So far it is working. I went into copious detail so maybe people with more technical knowledge can figure this out. I am not sure if the problem is with Spectrum’s internet settings, the change to a separate router and modem, the app or what. BTW, initially the Spectrum connection worked, then it stopped working later in the day. I may end up manually connecting the VPN if my solution does not continue to work, something I can live with.
Developer Response ,
Hi, sorry to hear that. We are ready to help you, but I'm afraid it would be too complicated to deal with this here on App Store. Could you please contact us by contact form https://support.avast.com/en-ww/contact/paid_ios_Avast-SecureLine-VPN-for-iOS ? Just describe your problem again and add any useful information.
Meets my security needs
I have been using AVAST Secure Line VPN for about a year. It was a little pricey when I got it last year but, they have since made this product much more competitive. It works flawlessly and very easy to use. I have seen other reviewers for other services talk about having multiple locations. However, I feel there are plenty of locations to choose from with Secure Line.
I became aware of this service with my PC AVAST virus protection where they offer secure Line with the service as an option that has worked well for me. So I have confidence in the product for my IPhone and IPad.
