Net Radar works with all VPN protocols and responds real-time to connection changes made in dedicated VPN apps when used side-by-side.



Net Radar shows you the current VPN status, public IP number and associated geographical location, and gives a quick insight into your connection history.

Trust is good.
But control is still better.

Net Radar monitors your VPN connection status 'inside' your iPad or iPhone by tracking and checking multiple VPN specific network configuration aspects. After each detected configuration change it uses an external GeoIP service to look at your Internet connection from the 'outside'. When both sides indicate a working VPN connection, then Net Radar will display the connection as safe.

Works perfectly together.

Net Radar is fully optimized to be used in split screen modus. This makes it ideal to use Net Radar side-by-side with your favorite VPN app. The effect of each connection change made in your VPN app will be immediately visible in Net Radar.

Net Radar Setup

Track your connection history.
If you want to.

The Console module of Net Radar is default disabled to protect your privacy. When activated, it will log each connection and VPN status change, including all relevant details. If you want you can even make an export to CSV compatible apps like Numbers and Excel. The logging database can be wiped out with one simple tap.

Net Radar Warning

Super handy widget.
For super quick access.
