Save Password Does Not Work
Seems to be an aged issue as others have also reported this. It makes the VPN unusable in my opinion. It is just to cumbersome to add in a password after every time your phone is locked/unlocked. Why have a save password toggle if it doesn’t actually save password??!! I’ll give it 2 stars simply because the free but there are better options out there.

Broken - Do not use until they fix it!
I have a FortiGate FTG-201F and cannot connect to the SSL-VPN from an iOS/ iPadOS device using this app. The authentication (including 2FA) works and then the device presents an “internal error”. After troubleshooting the issue with FortiGate support, it was identified that the 3-way handshake does not complete with a “Reset” flag (value of 1) sent from the app back to the FortiGate device and the connection is dropped. I understand that this sounds like a forum issue or a support ticket, but the FortiClient team is separate from the FortiGate support team and does not provide VPN support for users of the free app. They also don’t provide any way to contact them or provide feedback. I hope this review makes its way to the FortiClient team and they can fix the issue for all users. My FortiGate firmware version is 7.2.5, build 1517 and the iOS version on my iPhone14 is 16.5.1. Thanks for fixing this issue FortiClient team.

Just a blank screen
I go through and enter in my credentials, etc, and get a blank white screen, except for the word cancel in upper right. This appears to be a known issue, and it appears nothing is being done about it. We were forced to use fortigate, and it literally shut down half the department. I wish we could go back to our old vpn.

App doesn't work with iOS 17
Since the last update, I can sign in and it says I'm connected. But once I try to connect to my computer, it spins and spins and never connects. You'd imagine they would have fixed this issue, but here we are over 40 days later with no resolution.

Save password don’t work!!!
Same as everybody else reported. The save password does not work and if you use complex passwords it’s a real pain in the room to have to try to put it in every time you have to do it. Remove the option if you’re not gonna make it work.

Can’t uninstall the App, be careful!
Doesn’t work, tried to remove but no option, can only be removed from home screen but still in App Library, even thought I have deleted its VPN profile in Setting. This is very bad that can’t even uninstall.

It’s not stable but I don’t have other choice.
You need to try hundreds of times to connect even though you’ve input all of the right information.

Save password???? Work reliably???
How can this option still be broken after 2+ years. Broken in the Mac version as well. This app also forgets the client certificate passphrase, which makes is more than useless for average end users

Stay Signed In Does Not Work
App does not allow you to stay signed in for 30 days which is our Microsoft 365 MFA standard. This works on all of our other authenticated services, except for the for the FortiGate VPN. I love FortiNet so please fix this app immediately!

Unusable for iPhones
Cannot go less than “a” star ori would. The latest release of this software renders it useless on iPhones. Have tested and confirmed with Fortinet TAC that the application will not connect. Their suggestion is to use the premium application.

75% of the time I try to log in I get an error stating wrong credentials. My company switched over to this VPN this last spring, and we've hated ever since. More headache and I don't see us sticking with it after the contract is over.

Stay away from this app, even the other FortiClient is marked as legacy
1) cannot work with IP address based URL - I got “invalid DNS server” 2) funny thing is, the app demands users to upgrade to full version to get additional features and support. But I am a paid user of fortigate!

There’s no way to save the password. There’s a save password switch which doesn’t work at all.

SSO doesn’t work
Single sign-on just doesn’t work. When trying to sign in, it just shows a blank screen. This is the only thing I need the app for. I can’t use this app.

Is there a "stay connected" option? When I close the lid to my Mac Air, the connection is lost.
