I’m testing out the trial version of the Brave iOS VPN. It mostly works but am disappointed to report that it periodically disconnects without warning and never reconnects, thereby leaving my raw IP address exposed.
When in this disconnected state, reconnection involves nothing more than manually flipping the “Brave VPN” switch back on in the main menu. Not terribly difficult to do, but it is a repetitive manual process that I’d just as soon avoid.
I guess I was hoping the Brave VPN would function similarly to AirVPN on my computer; When a disconnect occurs, it warns me, blocks all outbound connections, and continually attempts to reconnect to the VPN server in the background until such time as it either succeeds or I turn the VPN off entirely. Is there a way to make the Brave VPN behave in a similar manner?
As it stands, I have to continually check whether or not the VPN is actually functioning as advertised, making it rather useless to me. That said, if there’s a way to address the issue, I’d definitely become a paid subscriber.
