Troubleshooting Mobile Zone for Android

VPN permission are requested after every Reboot


On Android versions (4.0.3 - 4.4), each time the phone is rebooted, all VPN permissions need to be re-granted. This is a feature of the earlier versions of the Android operating system. Thus after each reboot the VPN permissions for Family Zone will need to be re-granted. Updating to a later version of Android will resolve this issue.
