This was purposefully added in the December update for the Android
application, a user should not be able to bring tunnels up and down without
being an "authenticated". This could be added as a toggle within the app,
but it has not been done or requested as far as I am awre.

You should still be able to use the `wg-quick down` from within a Tasker
shell command.
