Any workarounds for VPNs?

I have McAfee secure VPN activated on my iPhone. Unfortunately, it causes a connection error when I try to use my Ring app. I would prefer to keep the VPN for safe browsing on my phone. Is there a workaround for this issue?

Thanks.

No there isn’t. Ring doesn’t support VPN usage so if you have issues you’ll have to fix them on your own.
Likely you’ll just have to turn off your VPN, use Ring, then turn your VPN back on. The brief period without using a VPN should be fine.
