McAfee VPN on iPhone

I had Mcafee vpn on my android phone, and was able to exclude certain apps when VPN was active. Now I have an iPhone and cannot see any way to exclude an app, like my blink cameras. If vpn is on, blink does not work, so I have to shut down vpn. So I have a situation where the vpn has to always be off, what good is this to me. 

is there a different process to exclude apps on iPhone? Or is this functionality not available
