Troubleshooting when Avast SecureLine VPN profile is not signed on iOS 8

When you install Avast SecureLine VPN 3.0 or higher on your Apple device with iOS 8 or higher, you are prompted to install an unsigned Avast SecureLine VPN profile.

Avast SecureLine VPN app is already signed by the App Store, and installing its VPN profile is safe.


iOS 8 introduced a new feature which gives an application the capability to create custom VPN configuration profiles and manage VPN connections. Avast SecureLine VPN 3.0 and higher support this capability, and as a result, the Not Signed status appears when you install it on an iOS 8 device.

iOS 7 and lower does not allow to create custom VPN configuration profiles, therefore they are created by Avast VPN servers and downloaded to your device. To confirm that a profile is trusted, a certificate signed by Avast is embedded in the profile along with the VPN settings.
