Hi there, my son has an Apple Iphone 5S. We had issues with the VPN not connecting on his phone. I have uninstalled the mobile zone app on his phone and re-installed it, however the VPN keeps trying to connect, and he doesn't have access to the internet (and the apps that I have allowed him to have). This is also after we have turned off his phone numerous times and turned back on.
Interesting that he was able to connect to internet and use these apps at his friends house tonight.
I have now changed the settings in Family Zone to cancel filtering for studying and play times for now, however, this defeats the purpose. What do I do to address the VPN issue?
Can I ask if he is on the latest version of the Software for iPhone?
If he is not on the latest update, can you
Let me know if this resolves the issue or if further investigating is required.
I have noticed that there are quite a few red flags for the Mobile Zone VPN being tampered with.
It may help to activate the consequences feature which will lock your children out of their apps for 60 minutes if they tamper with Mobile Zone.

I would recommend fixing these permissions, activating the consequences feature and monitoring the devices to see if the issue persists.
To allow pending Mobile Zone permissions you will need to:
I have the same issue on my daughter's iPhone 7. It is sooo frustrating. I kept on thinking that she was always 'tampering' with her device when I receive a Family Zone notification but I have witnessed the VPN constantly disconnecting and trying to reconnect. She is frequently unable to access wifi and is chewing through her own limited data. I'm sure she has tampered with her device along the way, but I think there is a VPN problem which is creating a lot of arguments and angst!
I'm having the same issue with my son's ipad. It's on the latest app, but the VPN keeps dropping out which means the internet drops out and he can't do his work.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but the issue keeps happening.
