OpenVPN used 2GB Cellular Data This Month

Post by shammalammadingdong » Thu Feb 15, 2018 5:10 pm

Looking in cellular in setting OpenVPN has used 2.1GB this period. WTH!!!!

Anyone else noticed huge usage or been kicked over their cellular data plan limit? Never had huge usage like this with prior versions of OpenVPN. I do have a bunch of OpenVPN profiles loaded (65j due to travel reasons but the app should only be using the selected config.

iPhone 6S, iOS 11.2.5, OpenVPN Connect 1.2.7

I think more work is needed, SOON. Especially if the app is costing users money for data overages.

I noticed this as well. It seems to not adhere to the cellular data policy.

For example, when on LTE (without VPN), I cannot download Apps from the appstore (I have turned this off in Cellular data settings). However, when connected to the vpn, it will download the apps. I will have a look at the bug tracker, but want to avoid a duplicate post if shammalammadingdong has already started one.
