I installed F-Secure Freedome on my iphone running iOS v16.1. installation included my permission to use Freedome on iOS (that's how I understood it) I said ok. I then got a popup from iOS (I think) that said something like: using a vpn will subject to iphone to monitoring and tracking -- that's a very loose paraphrase and I not happy that I didn't get a screenshot or exact verbiage. It seems 180 degree odd as one the purposes of using vpn is privacy & not being tracked. I just did a quick google search but did not find reference to the wording of this permission popup. I installed another vpn couple of years ago, and I don't recall seeing that "warning" --WONDER IF I MISREAD THAT POPUP??
