Named the favorite privacy tool of the New York Times in 2016, 2017, and 2018, Disconnect offers simple to use and powerful protection that is trusted by over 50 million people.

Disconnect Premium blocks and shows you tracking across your entire device, protecting you inside all the apps and browsers you use. Our FullVPN mode encrypts all your traffic and changes your IP address, which makes it harder for others to access and track your online activity.

Disconnect never logs, tracks, or collects any of your online activity or personal information, except the information you explicitly volunteer.

Premium VPN features:

- Block and see invisible tracking across your entire device, protecting you inside all the apps, browsers, and websites you use
- Use Performance mode to accelerate page load speeds by up to 44% and reduces bandwidth by up to 39% depending on your device usage!
- Our VPN keeps you private and secure online by encrypting all your traffic and changing your IP address, which prevents Wi-Fi snooping and others from accessing and tracking your online activity, identity, sensitive information, and location
- Encrypt all Internet connections, to prevent Wi-Fi snooping and other forms of surveillance
- Unlike browser specific products, Disconnect Premium protects you across all your applications, including all mobile browsers

Cannot use the VPN to full potentials.

I’m a premium user of 100yrs validity , I traveled overseas and my only reliable source of anonymity is DISCONNECT but anytime I connect to the Vpn server my current geo location in my shopping apps still shows. Which is limiting me to use the app to it full potential. I cannot get anything done for the family from Walmart,bestbuy,target,Sears etc... maybe I did not set the app right. So I need your assistance. Thanks!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback. Please reach out to for prompt developer help. Have you tried to toggle on "Encrypted" mode? Expected result is routing all traffic and changing your IP.

Needs more locations

But I like what Disconnect does for privacy as a company, definitely signed up for a subscription ! I know in time things will get better.

So some of the hiccups I’ve seen, so far:
Messages don’t come in on my iPad unless I turn this vpn off and then back on. Only have to do once per day but there’s been some days where I do it more than that.

On my iPhone, the button that allows you to change locations doesn’t work at all unless I go into settings.

When I make or receive phone calls on my phone, I had to turn the VPN off and then back on to have a stable call otherwise there’s either a delay on the persons voice or the call the other person cuts off. On my iPad, FaceTime can look glitch-y when talking. Again all this is resolved if I turn it off and then back on or I just turn it off.

I can leave Smart Pro on both (iPad,iPhone) without any of the said issues. It’s just the Premium VPN.

And lastly, on Premium, the way you see and interact with the tracker screen, isn’t the same as in SmartPro. Would like it to be the same or at the least, be able to manage them better like on Smart Pro (manage Facebook, google and fingerprinting levels, and seeing list of blocked trackers).

That’s it so far, not deducting anything cause I love what it does and I believe you guys can and will get better. Hats off to the developers for both this and Smart Pro.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your support it means a lot to us! We are working really hard to make our products as good as we can. Adding more locations definitely part of the plan!

Very satisfied

I paid for Norton VPN and other “top rated” VPNs. They were more complicated , would disconnect or lag. I have had Disconnect now for over a year. I like this better than others, because it blocks ads and other malware in normal mode. When I am in a public WiFi I turn on the more encrypted mode. Or if I’m trying to access something from Europe or USA. Being in Mexico.
It never gets interrupted and with IOS I have had no problems at all. Clean and easy. For a normal user that’s not trying to hide anything just more protection and getting rid of adds on news apps in general. Or trying to access a sports game only available in USA or Europe. I love it!
