VPN connections drop for multitudes of reasons originating "out there". I found out about the existence of a MacOS "feature" that silently breaks the connection upon being up for 24 hours.

Note --- it is the VPN that drops -- not your internet connection.

After expressing my irritation to Apple about their sabotage --- my VPN service came up with a beta Mac app (HideMe.app) that would take care of it. That *looked* good, but gave me ZERO speed connections.

After checking out the assorted options -some waaaay to geeky for me to work -- I snagged this one. Simple. Clean instructions in the help files.

It is an App Store item -- which means it won't/ cannot pause your online programs when the VPN breaks. It does take a few seconds to re-establish a VPN connection --- which is a few seconds of privacy exposure.

Frankly, that is the only reason that kept me from giving it 5 stars.

This is very good. Connects very fast after a Mac wake-up and reconnects very fast after a dropped vpn connection. This is set-it and forget-it, fully automatic. Just what I wanted and is well worth the price and well worth 5 stars. I'm glad I have it.

No trial; no buy! Too difficult to get a refund from the app store if the app does not meet your needs!
