Private Tunnel VPN for iOS is a new approach to true Internet security that creates a Virtual Private Network, a VPN that encrypts, hides and protects your Internet traffic.
Private Tunnel uses the official Apple VPN API.
SECURE AND PROTECT YOUR ACCESS: Encrypts data transfer to prevent attackers from reading your data
CONNECT WHEREVER YOU ARE: Protect your access on the go
USE WITH CONFIDENCE: Developed by the OpenVPN team and trusted by enterprise businesses for mission critical applications
This is the iOS VPN client for the Private Tunnel VPN service. For connecting to non-Private Tunnel OpenVPN servers, please use OpenVPN Connect for iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/openvpn-connect/id590379981

Ratings and Reviews
Don’t typically do this. . .
But, all the negative reviews on this app?
Are we sure it’s not user error or network configuration issues or something and not actually in any way related to the functionality of this app?
If you have a PrivateTunnel subscription and are logged in, it’s as simple as choosing your virtual server and clicking the big green ‘connect’ button. At least in my experience.
The OpenVPN connect app is pretty good, too. If, for example, you have a lifetime plan at ‘AcmeVPN’ and are able to access the OpenVPN configuration files for the service, it’s easy to import them into the OpenVPN connect app (at least it has been since the latest update: That app was not without problems importing valid credentials not too long ago).
That app works great now. I have dozens of config files in my Connect app (including the ones I downloaded from my portal, the ones used by this app) and they all work. I can pick the different IP, UDP vs TCP, etc.
Plus, it allows you to use the OpenVPN protocol with the ‘AcmeVPN’ service you’re already paying for anyway. Otherwise you’re stuck using the default iOS IKEv2 (not that that’s inherently bad). I digress.
Most affordable and semi-reliable
I’ve tried multiple VPN is found on the App Store, very few have the features that I need, never had a problem with connectivity and speeds are decent, this is the only VPN I have found so far that offers the ability of changing it to a TCP setting, however from our uses I wish there was an option where you can actually tell it which WiFi that you do not want VPN on that way you don’t have to worry about switching it on and off in the app as you move from one Wi-Fi to another. Example having it turned on while at work or at the grocery store, and having it automatically switch off while you’re on your home network.
Started out perfect....then...
Started out great. No issues. Tap home screen button, choose your location and swipe to open.
Starting about 2 weeks ago, now I tap on icon and asks if I want to download app. Tap that and then I have to hit the “get” button, then it opens. I don’t get it.
It was so easy before and I don’t know why I have to go through 4 additional steps to open it.
I still have it 4 star because when it was working, it was friggin awesome.
Any ideas would be great. Sorry about contacting you through Reviews but I did not see any Support links. Help please.
Developer Response ,
You seem to be using our other app OpenVPN Connect. Please launch the Private Tunnel app from its own icon and not from the Connect app, as we have now removed Private Tunnel functionality from the "generic" OpenVPN Connect app.
This will save you the extra click.
