Passepartout is a smart VPN client perfectly integrated with Apple platforms. Passepartout is the only app you need for both well-known VPN providers and your personal VPN servers.
With Trusted Networks, Passepartout unlocks the very best of using a VPN.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
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

Thanks for your review and don’t hesitate posting your issues on the support Reddit!
This is what OpenVPN should be
Some of the instructions are confusing, and was hard for me to find, but worth it. I had been waiting for some way to do a quick push button on for a VPN so I didn’t have to navigate menus and everything. The instructions seemed to indicate that this wasn’t possible. However, as long as you have a Siri shortcut, you can use Shortcuts to put a button on your Home Screen to turn it on. I couldn’t get my NordVPN working, but with a little scripting, I can turn off my home VPN and start Nord without a hassle. I wish more developers would update good apps like this to use new Apple API’s. Keep up the good work. I have pretty much chucked the OpenVPN app. It was hard for me to import my ovpn files, but once I got them in iCloud, I was able to figure it out.
