Cisco Secure Client App Comments & Reviews

Cisco Secure Client Positive Reviews

UpdatedUpdate: it turned out that the ‘unable to import certificate’ was a temporary problem and I was able to import the certificate the next day. I am no longer able to import certificate for my vpn in this app. (Error message: ‘import PKCS12 failed with error’) I imported the same certificate to anyconnect on another ipad (ios13)a couple months ago, and to legacy anyconnect on my current ipad (ios11) about a year ago. But now I can neither delete nor import the certificate in either anyconnect or legacy anyconnect on any of the two ipads..Version: 4.8.03038

Please help us to connectPlease , please pay attention and help us Considering the sensitive and critical conditions of IRAN The restriction created on the Internet has caused many VPNs to suffer from disruptions and failures Many people in Iran use your software and have problems with the new update Your old version 4.8 connects to the Internet easily and works, but the new version does not connect at all Currently, the old version is not available for download and only those who have not updated their Cisco can use it. Please advise, if it is possible to provide a link so that the old version can be downloaded, if so, what do you suggest? If the new update is done on version 5, I think it will work, please help us to work with Cisco. Thank you for your sincere cooperation..Version: 5.0.00246

Pls add save passwordI love Cisco and i use this app for a long time but its really annoying that i have to enter password every time manually and it cant save it. even When the screen turned off, after i turn it on again i have to re-login and enter the password again I Don't know why they don't add such as this option.Version: 4.10.02095

Works with 11.2 with caveatWith the server side workaround, AnyConnect now works on iOS 11.2, so I'm revising my rating from 1 to 5 stars. Previous review: The VPN client will fail to establish a connection if running on a device with cellular and Wi-Fi both enabled. I reported this bug months ago but nobody has fixed it yet. Workaround is to disable cellular then you will be able to establish a VPN connection over Wi-Fi. If you want to establish a VPN connection over cellular, you will need to disable Wi-Fi..Version: 4.0.7077

Unable to switch GroupsI have this app through my school and use it while I’m abroad in China. Works pretty well but it’s finicky when it comes to the way you access the school’s VPN. It’s worked in the past but this summer the app seems different. My school has a “General Access” option and a “Library Resource” option for VPN, but this iOS app doesn’t allow me to switch between the two and so I’ve been unable to use the app. I hope the developers resolve this in the future, but for now, this VPN is almost useless..Version: 4.8.00801

Almost perfectNever really had a problem with it. Always works when I need it to. That said 1 thing I would like to see is when I use an iPhone I can’t save the password to one click sign in. I always have to write the password every time. Other than that I really can’t say anything bad about it. Definitely a great app!.Version: 4.9.05043

Great performance!Using the app on deferent platforms for years. It’s just GREAT. I would rate it 5 star if there was a way to save passwords or use fingerprint instead. It’s frustrating to manually type it every time, especially for those who use it frequently. A gadget for toggling the connection would be awesome as well..Version: 4.9.05043

MKWhen i open accounts and password and try to make my phone remember the password to this app there is a blank field that i need to fill and it says website and if I don’t fill it the process won’t be done actually I want the phone to remember the pass for this app not any website I really don’t know what to do.Version: 4.6.00122

Great appI enjoy using this fast and easy , with no speed drop absolutely lovely , however there is this one thing that bothers the app is not remembering password for my connection or i better say for any connection and that is kinda painful everytime you have to type a password ☹️.Version: 4.8.00825

How to save passwordHey there there is something so weird about this app which i can not save the password for my vpn configuration and every time i need to connect i have to enter it and it is so annoyin can you help us by updating the app?.Version: 5.0.00230

Why your app can’t save passwordMy problem is that why your app can’t save my vpn account password it’s really hard for me and more for my father to enter the password every time that we want to connect to vpn is it really hard for you to set some settings that could enable password save ? Please do it..Version: 4.8.00801

IOS 14 ProblemAll was fine and working like a charm but since I have upgraded to iOS 14 my connections get slower after like 15 minutes and my internet gets so slow I can’t do anything, I need to reconnect so I can use it again, I have several servers and this happens for all..Version: 4.9.00518

UpdateHi there, I would like to know that if this company plans to update this app to be able to use it on Mac. This is a great app, but I think that will help a lot if we can use in our Macs too..Version: 4.9.00518

It works but needs improvementsIt would be great if Cisco Secure Client can remember user passwords, and also provide a disconnect button so users can stop non-successful connection immediately..Version: 5.0.00230

Excellent ChoiceThis app works perfectly but I wish it could save my password so I didn’t have to enter my password everytime. So please consider this issue in your future updates..Version: 4.9.00518
