I started using Z App mobile for ZPA access on my iPhone to access our secure podcasts. I see that the VPN icon is on all the time on my phone. Will this cause my battery life to be reduced?
There shouldn’t be any noticeable difference to battery life with/without Z App.
The reason being that its not a VPN client, its just acting as a proxy client. When a user requests say Google.com, it sends a connect request to our cloud rather than going direct. Client side there’s no additional processing really.
The “VPN” runs on the device and is used to route traffic to Z App (which then sends it to our cloud). Because the VPN isn’t really connecting out, its not maintaining a session to a server so there’s no overhead here.
