  • iOS 14 issues (?)


    By a good Joe
    Using this app for work, but since my upgrade to iOS 14 the app began to block my internet connection. I’m at home, connected to WiFi and connected to anyconnect. I need to walk my dog outside, I take my phone go out, WiFi connection is dropped, LTE is in place - no connection to the internet as well as to my corporate resources (everything was fine on iOS 13, flawless reconnection from/to WiFi <-> mobile network). Now I need to disconnect from my corp gateway (and I’m online again), I connect to corp gateway (enter credentials, second factor etc., more time) and then everything works until I get to WiFi zone, where my phone connects to the hotspot and I’m offline again until I disconnect Cisco. Same stuff happens in the office now: I go from the corridor to elevator, WiFi drops, LTE lives and I’m offline. Can’t use the app now as I need to disconnect and reconnect manually now.
  • VPN Automatically connects without user permission


    By Fjejgkv
    At least once daily, at a random time of day, the VPN will connect automatically and with no notification that it has done so. The little VPN logo just pops up on the top left all of a sudden. Considering a VPN routes all traffic through Cisco's network, this is an unacceptable privacy invasion. Also annoying bc there are random websites like 9to5mac that are blocked by Cisco and before I realized what was happening, was confused as to why it wasn't loading suddenly. The only way to prevent this is to delete the app between uses and reinstall. Before using the VPN for the first time each install, it won't auto connect so I basically avoid this app like the plague. I do work at Cisco and yes it does. Something is turning it on without me opening any Cisco apps including any connections so this is because of Cisco not another IT department
  • Works with 11.2 with caveat


    By Sethmeisterg
    With the server side workaround, AnyConnect now works on iOS 11.2, so I'm revising my rating from 1 to 5 stars. Previous review: The VPN client will fail to establish a connection if running on a device with cellular and Wi-Fi both enabled. I reported this bug months ago but nobody has fixed it yet. Workaround is to disable cellular then you will be able to establish a VPN connection over Wi-Fi. If you want to establish a VPN connection over cellular, you will need to disable Wi-Fi.
  • Almost perfect


    By mculver06
    Never really had a problem with it. Always works when I need it to. That said 1 thing I would like to see is when I use an iPhone I can’t save the password to one click sign in. I always have to write the password every time. Other than that I really can’t say anything bad about it. Definitely a great app!
  • Unable to switch Groups


    By lewis-90
    I have this app through my school and use it while I’m abroad in China. Works pretty well but it’s finicky when it comes to the way you access the school’s VPN. It’s worked in the past but this summer the app seems different. My school has a “General Access” option and a “Library Resource” option for VPN, but this iOS app doesn’t allow me to switch between the two and so I’ve been unable to use the app. I hope the developers resolve this in the future, but for now, this VPN is almost useless.
  • MK


    By mind knight
    When i open accounts and password and try to make my phone remember the password to this app there is a blank field that i need to fill and it says website and if I don’t fill it the process won’t be done actually I want the phone to remember the pass for this app not any website I really don’t know what to do
  • Great performance!


    By Sporco Fantasma
    Using the app on deferent platforms for years. It’s just GREAT. I would rate it 5 star if there was a way to save passwords or use fingerprint instead. It’s frustrating to manually type it every time, especially for those who use it frequently. A gadget for toggling the connection would be awesome as well.
  • Great app


    By A.NVS
    I enjoy using this fast and easy , with no speed drop absolutely lovely , however there is this one thing that bothers the app is not remembering password for my connection or i better say for any connection and that is kinda painful everytime you have to type a password ☹️
  • Work slow recently


    By 为啥不能评价!!为啥,ws
    This App used to work really good. Fast speed and stable network. But recently, I don’t know why it works really really slow, I can hardly open the google search page. What should I do?
  • iOS 14 Problem


    By Dehqanis
    All was fine and working like a charm but since I have upgraded to iOS 14 my connections get slower after like 15 minutes and my internet gets so slow I can’t do anything, I need to reconnect so I can use it again, I have several servers and this happens for all.
