Best OpenVPN app on iOS, bar none.
Blows away the so called “official” OpenVPN Connect app. My provider was having some issues with their WireGuard servers some time ago, so I decided to use the OpenVPN servers as a fallback option until they resolved the issue. I knew from prior experience that the OpenVPN Connect app for iOS was an ugly and unreliable piece of 💩, so I did some searching and found Passepartout, and my mind has been blown. If everyone put the same care into their apps, the App Store would be a much better place. Heck, I think this dev could even create an app to cure racism if we gave him the funding.
Speaking of funding, I did check out the Kickstarter page, and sadly, I can’t be a backer at this point in time. As someone who doesn’t use MacOS, the development roadmap doesn’t quite align with my needs. If the dev put WireGuard development ahead of MacOS and IPSec (which already has native support on iOS), I would be backing on sight. As it stands, with WireGuard support being a ‘stretch’ goal, I can’t pledge more than the bare minimum. I have, however, reached out to my VPN provider (who have a decent history of backing open source projects) and shared the link to the Kickstarter page with them.

I'm flattered to say the least hah. Come on, it's just an app!
As to the campaign, I quickly evaluated your suggestion and I agree. Also, I believe that your feeling is shared. That's why I suggest you visit the campaign now, as I updated the main target to include WireGuard rather than IKEv2.
Thanks for your kind comment and let me know what you think.
Still A Great App!
I can’t tell you what a relief it is knowing I can set it and forget it. Your app has been so reliable, that I have it setup and running for the past 9 months on my parent’s iPhone as well as another couples (all around 90 years old). I consider this app together with the VPN providers I use to be the first line of defense and your app has not let me down. Thank you for continuing to maintain your app in such a dynamic environment. I had backed your kickstarter project—sorry the goal wasn’t met—and would like to continue supporting your excellent work since you have been so dedicated. Therefore I made a Maxi donation via your app, and will continue to support the valuable service you have provided to the iPhone community.
Past review July 2,2019
Someone mention this app in one of the VPN client forums. I gave it a try because I liked having another option that allowed me to use OpenVPN profiles on my iPhone—I’ve never looked back. I haven’t had any issues with the app. It has been a relief knowing it connects when the WiFi connects. I also like seeing the profile parameters and the ability to change them.
There’s a few apps I have that you can tell the developer(s) has/have put a lot of thought, time, and effort to build a quality app, and this is one. Thank you for tackling this particular problem.

P.S.: and thanks for the donation, it’s greatly appreciated.
Go From Secure - to - Bulletproof
Yes. It’s that good. Some many of the best VPNs all utilize an open VPN model, it’s simply more secure. iOS/Apple has always been a system where a complex application/program that require a lot of time to setup and access openVPN servers. If you have an application like VyprVPN, or ProtonVPN, bring your iOS application to its full potential make the chameleon protocol actually work the way it’s supposed to. Take the secure core technology of ProtonVPN to another level. Simple to get started, with all the right features, and none if the weight/fluff.
I imagine I’ll be using this on any iOS device I have, for a really long time. Sometimes I have some connections issues, and wonder if the app utilizes the killswitch features of say VyprVPN. It seems that the worst thing could be a 10 second window w/ a tunnel up.
Still love this app! Great job
