Documents by Readdle is a popular file management app available for iPhone and iPad that serves as a replacement for Apple’s Files app. The app was updated today to version 7.4, which provides a new built-in VPN that not only works with Documents, but also with other iOS apps.
As a file management app, Documents is an advanced solution with local folders, servers, integration with third-party services and a built-in browser. With version 7.4, the app now has its own VPN.
If you are unfamiliar with the term, a VPN is a virtual private network that protects your browsing and makes it difficult to track your online activities, which can be useful for public Wi-Fi networks. A VPN also allows you to change your location to access websites and services from other regions.

Here’s how Readdle describes the built-in VPN in the Documents app:
Enjoy favorite movies, music and websites everywhere. Change the virtual location to access a website or app that may be restricted to you. Watch Netflix, Disney + and Hulu, listen to Pandora, and enjoy many other services wherever you are.
Keep your data safe online. When using a public Wi-Fi network, hackers can easily steal sensitive information such as passwords and credit card numbers. VPN encrypts your data, so no evil eye sneaks up on you while sending an important email or using online banking at your local coffee shop.
Users can subscribe to Readdle’s VPN by going to the new VPN tab in the Documents app. It’s a free trial of 50 MB of data per day, and you can subscribe to the unlimited plan for $ 12.49 per month or $ 89.99 per year. When VPN is enabled, the company promises that all browsing data will be protected and that the user can change location to 27 different countries to circumvent virtual geographic restrictions.
Documents from Readdle are available for free in the App Store. The app requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running iOS 11 or later. In a related note, the company says that the Documents app will be updated this fall with widgets and other iOS 14 features.
