But, I don't think it is showing up in the trusted credentials in my security setting.

I don't see the C O credential. Why is it not installing the credentials? The ad blocking does seem to be working.
I am rooted, with Verizon's xt1254 phone using resurrection remix rom right now.
I also use the "mother of all adblocking" script (right word?).

Hello, thanks for installing.

The notification is, at this time, normal because of the way Android handles the certs. It can be removed with root optionally but we can not do it on our end.

Thanks for the feedback,

I am very interested in this and have not seen this behavior before. We have attempted to replicate the issue but are unable. We currently do not have a Huawei P8 to test on but any more info on the phone would be greatly appreciated as well as steps to replicate. Replying with Android version, phone model, network you used (wifi or 4g, etc.) would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the question,

If by like AdAway you mean both block ads then yes we are similar.

Where we differ is we do not require root to block the ads. This means we can not modify host files like AdAway does. Instead we block with and on-device VPN than filters all traffic through it and removes the ads before they are in your apps and browsers.

There's no steps to replicate. I installed the app through Amazone app store.
I just put the phone down and after some time I notice a notification which states that vpn is disconnected. I can see this notification on my laptop as I have Airdroid installed which mirrors all android notifications to the laptop. So far all notifications came in while on home wifi.
Huawei P8 GRA-L09 android 5.0.1 on wifi. Haven't seen it happen yet while using 4g.

Vpn disconnects with screen off. And I meant adguard which uses the same vpn principle as adclear but their vpn doesn't keep shutting down. Which is why I've reverted to using it instead of adclear.

Our ticketing server is down right now, but we do know we've had issues with a Huawei phone running on 5.0.1 and its being worked on. We could possibly have a fix in our next update. I'll update you further when that server comes back online.

We understand why that would make you switch back. If you don't mind, could you provide us your phone model, os version, and connection (wifi/data) that this happened on? Thank you.

Well it's a relatively obscure Amazon fire phone with kit Kat, using Wi-Fi. So I can see why I might be having issues.

That's unfortunate. Could you give us your os version?

One thing you can try is to uninstall adclear and delete the certificate (if you installed it), then reboot and install again. I'm not sure if you tried to install multiple times, but that sometimes causes issues with the VPN.

Edit: Also, did this happen on wifi or lte/4g?

Here is a link for uninstalling the certificate, because maybe it is there:

Althoug you uninstal Ad, the certificate is not uninstaled (I sugest to the developer to do so, because, for example, the alternative to have no pin in block screen becames greyed).
