Mobile: schedule to automatically disconnect OpenVPN

Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:



I regularly use my mobile phone (iPhone) for development and testing. I connect to my company’s VPN to access the test servers.

Often, I forget to disconnect the VPN, and find that I’m still connected. This is a privacy issue. My company doesn’t have to know what I do in my own time.

So, would it be possible to add a setting with which I can schedule an automatic disconnect from any VPN I might ne connected at that time? Where I could set e.g. the time to 17:00, and the app will disconnect at 17:00.

A related feature could be to set an amount of time to keep the VPN connected, an hour, 2 hours, etc. Then at 5 minutes before, a system notification could be given, allowing to extend the period. And if the user doesn’t respond, it will disconnect.
