Man in the middle attack?
Today I received a pop up on my iPhone 7 Plus stating that “Freedome would like to add vpn configurations” “All network activity on this iPhone may be filtered or monitored when using VPN.” Choice of allow or don’t allow. I did not choose either and shut down my phone. After restarting It kept popping up preventing use of my phone. I finally got into settings and disabled notifications. My phone has been wiped of Freedome settings and has no protection. Why is this happening?
This is a normal notification from the iOS operating system when Freedome (or any other VPN) adds its VPN configuration profile. iOS notifies the user about this, as this would be a way for a malicious app to take over the network traffic. If the user doesn’t allow this, Freedome won’t work.5 Like
