Luna VPN Adblocker Potentially Stealing My Info

Postby JurusGomes » Sat Oct 26, 2019 2:24 pm

I recently downloaded the Luna VPN app / Adblock extension to my IOS device (iPhone 7) to block in-app YouTube Ads. It worked perfectly as advertised, but after reading some negative reviews the next morning, I learned that it had the potential to steal my personal information. Does an application like this only gain access to the information that has passed through the VPN? Or have I made an enormous mistake and compromised all the data that I keep stored on my iPhone such as my mobile banking and social media account information? After downloading the app, I activated it, downloaded the extension, ran some tests on the YouTube app to see if it worked, and deactivated it before going to sleep for the night. I didn't activate it again before I deleted the app / extension. My social media accounts and banking app weren't running during my tests. Any insight to my situation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, everyone. Mobdro

You say it's a VPN app, so it should only be able to see traffic going through the VPN. I don't use iOS but the only time it should be able to get information when off is if you have certain permissions enabled (such as location) but these should not be able to compromise your banking account or any passwords.
