Protect your privacy, change your IP location, encrypt your internet traffic, and block app and website trackers! We never collect, log, or share your data.

Disconnect Premium makes it easy to protect yourself from unwanted tracking inside websites, apps, and email! The most powerful and user friendly VPN app now includes unique SmartVPN technology that empowers you with an unprecedented amount of privacy and control over tracking and encryption. Full VPN setting routes and encrypts all traffic through a VPN server location of your choice. We strive to provide the best and most usable privacy solutions available. Our pioneering VPN products offer strong protection without causing any hassles, slowdown, or breakage.

Disconnect’s privacy technology is integrated into several popular browsers including Mozilla's Firefox and Microsoft's Edge and our apps have been Featured by The New York Times, Washington Post, 60 Minutes, Today Show, Wired, & many more!

Disconnect never logs, tracks, or collects any of your online activity or personal information, except the information you explicitly volunteer (like if you decide to email us).

- Protection across all your apps, browsers and email inboxes
- Device wide tracker protection, which results in faster page and app loads, reduced bandwidth, better battery life
- Easy to use firewall empowers you to block whatever you want
- Real-time list of trackers trying to collect your location and online activity
- Stats dashboard shows what's blocked, along with time and data savings
- Encrypt all Internet connections, to prevent Wi-Fi snooping and other forms of surveillance
- Full VPN mode masks your location / IP address
- “Less breakage” mode automatically does not route traffic through VPN when visiting sites and services known to block VPNs

- Supports 32 and 64-bit devices

Our Tracker Protection technology is integrated into popular browsers and is now available to block trackers inside all your apps. Premium blocks trackers by setting a DNS to prevent known tracking domains from connecting. We are solely focused on privacy and have a well-defined policy, which you can view here: https://disconnect.me/trackerprotection. We are not an ad blocker and never accept money for whitelisting. We give you full control of which trackers are blocked or allowed.

Why secure HTTP and DNS matter? Your device loads thousands of unsecured HTTP and DNS connections everyday. These unencrypted connections are vulnerable to surveillance. Our technology encrypts your DNS and HTTP connections. We NEVER store or log any traffic routed through our servers and don’t track your IP address or any other personal info, except the info you volunteer.

Apple gives itself and all app developers the ability to route device traffic over your device’s cellular interface without any user notice or permission. This means that even if you are using a VPN, Apple or any app you use could receive your cellular IP. You can prevent this by using the VPN on Wi-Fi only and turning off your device’s cellular connection. We are actively working on a better solution.

Our mission is to improve the internet and the world by empowering people to exercise their right to privacy.
- We help protect 100s of millions of people
- Accolades include winning the Innovation Award for Privacy and Security at the SXSW festival, list of Popular Science’s 100 Best of What’s New and being recommended as the New York Times' favorite privacy app for several years
- Public partnerships with leading privacy/security organizations including Consumer Reports, Mozilla, and the EFF

Solid Protection

UPDATED REVIEW: I’ve been using this as my VPN for years on both mobile and desktop, and have been very happy with the amount of tracking and ads that get blocked. Their customer service is exceptional and always willing to help. My previous review no longer stands, as they very quickly addressed the situation.

PREVIOUS REVIEW: The latest update which supposedly fixes bugs, has seemingly broken a lot of functionality. Certain apps will not load content unless Disconnect is turned off. Sad, because I’ve used this for years and have loved it.

So sorry to hear you ran into this! We just made changes on our end to address unexpected blocking with our app. Please completely close and exit our app then relaunch it to ensure the changes are applied for you. If you still have any issues or have any additional questions or feedback, please reach out to our support team at support@disconnect.me.

I miss the original Disconnect circle graphics

The first time I bought Disconnect, was years ago, when the app displayed a series of interconnected circles coming from any website I opened. I miss this, because it allowed me to see the dozens of trackers that originate from any single website. It also showed me in real time, exactly how many times social media apps were trying to access my computer hard drive, just from visiting any website that had a social media icon link. Twitter reportedly pinged my hard drive 600 times per minute, trying to access any vulnerabilities, that would give it unrestricted access to my computer data, even though I didn’t have a Twitter account. I really miss that part of the app. I suppose data collection and tracking has become so pervasive today, that knowing just how much data theft is going on would sicken most people. It would be great to see that function again though.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for sharing your suggestion with us! As our app's protection has grown, we had to change our interface, but we are working to see if we can bring back the ability to see the source of a tracker that we block. You can see what we block in real-time on the Activity page in an app, and if you want to see what is in a specific app or a specific website while we work on the new features, check the Activity page first, then visit the site or app, then check the Activity page again as it will now show the blocked trackers for what you just visited.

So—over 384 trackers, many w/mean and vicious names, blocked in less than 24 hours with Premium! I’m trying to wrap my mind around the all-out assault on my privacy! And I’m not able to. SMH . 🧐Clearly it’s an understatement to say how glad I am to have found this app. I finally feel protected—in my own home—while using my cell phone. And I already use a very expensive “premium level”VPN service (since 2014). It doesn’t work like this one. Or, I should say, a VPN alone is just not enough. And I’m aware of that. I just haven’t been able to find the right and effective combination of protection to use on my phone. I’ve had no problems using this app at all. It immediately made my phone faster, safer, better! This is clear to me. Looks like I’ll be opening up the wallet for a yearly subscription.
