  3. Tap on the “+” at the top of the screen and choose Create personal Automation. In the list below, find and tap on App. Tap on Choose to pick the app(s) you want VPN to activate with.
  4. Once you’ve chosen the app(s), tap on Done. Then, choose Is Opened and tap on Next.
  5. Tap on Add Action and search for Set VPN. Choose this option.
  6. On the new page, in the phrase “Connect to VPN”, tap on VPN. After a dropdown appears, choose ForestVPN.
  7. Tap “Next”. On the new page, turn off “Ask before running” and tap “Done”.

For this shortcut to work, you have to be on the 16.4 version of IOS.
