Better than most
I’ve tried several VPN’s and this one like most will disguise your IP and block trackers but it also switches on independently meaning I turn it off it turns itself on, I turn it off it turns itself on - and so it goes unless you block its access. If it was auto protecting because it felt your Internet access was unsafe that would be one thing - but that isn’t the case. It can, I assume unintentionally, interfere with cellular data when wireless internet is not available and there is a large amount of pages that won’t display not because there blocked by the VPN but because there denying access due to the way the IP was masked and the “signal” as it were was routed. For example when accessing Google with the VPN on you might have to make several attempts to establish that connection and use Google. I don’t know if they have corrected this with the new update or this is simply inherent in all VPN’s only time will tell as tech improves. Oh and it is rumored that although - and I actually I like Norton - your personal history etc. is masked/hid Norton itself can ultimately track it - but that’s only if you believe some of the guys working in Military Intelligence- and no that’s not an oxymoron. So if you have to have one form or another of big brother watching I guess I don’t mind Norton. Ok got to go 5G is on the way and pervasive AI is right behind it - so to all a good night
I was asked if I wanted to update my dissatisfaction with is product. I thought why not, sense the programmers had there chance to correct all problems. Maybe I should reevaluate this for them. So I did! I tried to turn it on, and it did turn on, it hung up after about an hour but it did get nearly a full hour of operation before it took a dump. This product needs someone to test it before they release it...still garbage!
This app needs a lot of work. The only thing really consistent with it is that it consistently locks up. It not only the app, the same problem exists in the Norton WIFI program for you PC. They both stink! Somebody needs to have a chance to excel at another vocation because programming doesn't seem to be their forte and I'm sure they are getting paid an exorbitant amount of money to produce this garbage. The one nice thing is that you can turn it off...thank god for that one!
This app seems to work better but still has issues when launching certain apps. I know HBO Now has a problem downloading data when the VPN is on. Also Hospital apps don't work and pandora has issues. Why these programmers can't fix it is unknown. You would think they would of had enough time even coming to work at 930 and leaving at 1pm and going on vacation every 3rd day.
Doesn’t work, limits phone usability
This app is a giant pain in the neck. It does not maintain a VPN connection on my iPhone 8, so I have to try to reconnect EACH time I want to use my phone, whether I’m in a WiFi zone or just using cellular data. Reconnecting can take 2, 5, 7, or endless attempts, sometimes not connecting at all. Without connecting, I can’t use my map app, my weather doesn’t refresh, and so on. This makes my phone usability total garbage. For instance, yesterday I got caught in a construction zone and needed a quick detour. I tried to open my map app and it couldn’t refresh with my location until the VPN connected. I tried to connect over and over, but it didn’t work and I couldn’t get a route.
This has been happening the entire first month of my subscription, although the app worked much better during the trial period. I do not recommend this app. I really love the idea of a VPN, particularly when I’m using a public WiFi, but being required to wait a few minutes or more each time I lift my phone to use it in my own home or when I’m out on the road is a huge headache. I wish I would have cancelled before I got trapped in a full year’s subscription.
Crucial 100% Of The Time
Norton and Symantec personal and enterprise internet security products have provided my company and our customers and me and my family crucial protection for over 20 years.
As technologies moved us from standalone computers to wired intranet enclaves to the wired Internet and now the evolving emancipation of wireless capabilities, we have witnessed the alarming pace with which Bad Actors have acquired tools to breach systems, corrupt and steal data from unprotected systems. Norton has stayed out in front, provided continuously improving their offerings.
Norton’s Secure VPN encapsulates the communication between my device and the end point (websites) with which I am exchanging my sensitive information so that all the devices and other infrastructure through which it passes so it can’t be stolen or held hostage. When so many players in the Web and Internet galaxy are busily trying to extract more and more information about us to target us for “legitimate” business reasons on top of the Bad Actor exploitation, I can’t afford to allow my communications to be vulnerable.
Norton’s Secure VPN is among the very best safeguards for wired and wireless Internet and Web transactions. It’s easy to use and updated frequently to stay ahead of emerging threats.
Note: I have no affiliation with Symantec or Norton aside from being a customer, and I not received nor would I accept any compensation or consideration for my sharing this with you.
Best VPN ever made
By Shopify Life!
This VPN is the fastest and most accurate VPN ever created for the public. Phones and devices are entirely hidden and can not be located by any source known to man. My phone has twice the speed, twice the ability to find internet search criteria with zero interference from ad companies, carrier services, phone maker or any other party from any source. No other VPN can even claim to compete or offer the protection given here. Simply Amazing that a VPN has broken the barriers that all news media, social media, marketers, phone companies and manufactures said will never be accomplished in this lifetime! Well, they are all wrong!!! Do not look any farther. This is the VPN that your wanting. I was not paid and have zero “ZERO” connection to any person or persons with offers or self gain to write this review. I am not a professional review personnel and have zero affiliation with any company that is connected to any source traceable not any Avenue- Period!!!
VPN Configurations Problem
Downloaded the app maybe around six months ago. Worked great and was speedy in the beginning. After sometime it began to slow down my updates. Also, it used to two two locations with Japan and Singapore. Now it only gives the Singapore location. Suddenly, within the last month, the app won’t turn on and wants me to allow VPN Configurations. I allow it but it does nothing but gives me an error and won’t turn back on. I contacted tech support who really tried to help but couldn’t. Seems like their only solution (one I did before I contacted them) was to delete the app, restart my iPhone, then reinstall the app. Doesn’t work no how many times you do it. So now I have a VPN app that I paid for and doesn’t work. I want to give this app 5 stars from the beginning but with the slowing down of updates, only one location, and now inoperable, I give it three stars in the hope that somehow they’ll fix the issue. I reside in South Korea.
Slowness has been addressed
There have been two updates since my original post. The updates have corrected the slowness issue as I am now getting in the neighborhood of 200 Mbps consistently which is acceptable for going through the VPN.
Using a VPN I would expect to take a small hit with my speed. However, I never would have imagined how much my speed would be impacted. I can do a speed test while on my home WiFi without the VPN and get 250+ Mbps consistently. When I turn on the VPN my speed drops to at most 50Mbps! It does not matter what region I select the VPN to connect to. This is unacceptable as I cannot justify paying for such a performance degradation. I have been a Norton customer for many years, but unless this is addressed I will be canceling my Norton VPN subscription.
Just don’t even bother to download it
By User user 321
Yo so at first I was going to download this because I got a message saying I have 2 viruses from visiting “adult websites” and lets keep in mind I’m a young teen just trying to play my lemon game which is really fun so I looked up cheats for it you know. Cause I couldn’t get passed this one level so when I opened safari and looked up cheats and clicked the website the dumb notification came up. I’m the only person who uses this devise so there’s no way in the world that there’s adult websites on it. I’ve seen other people with the same complaint and the company just says something stupid about how it’s a 3rd party seller and all but if this was an actual legit great working app then they would have taken down the scam by now. So dont even try to blame the 3rd party seller. Plus it’s takes all of your money if you put your credit card number in. I’ve seen a bunch of people say that too! I personally think apple should remove it from the App Store! But if you want your money stolen and to be scammed then this is the app for you!!!
It was Working Great when I first got the VPN Now, overtime it has Continued to kick me off & shut down on me which in-turn drops me out of any app that I’m in or progress that I’ve obtained.. Very frustrating when your trying to take care of business things & on a timeline of production at times for processing of thing’s unfortunately it doesn’t help either when I’m paying high dollar 💵 $ for the the App & I should be receiving it free because it comes with my Internet Service Provider ( They Are/have a Collaboration) together & I’ve discussed the issue multiple times with them, though figured, Well maybe Since I’m Paying for it instead of getting it free ( which I actually Do pay $ through my internet service anyway, that’s why you pay a larger cost for this feature) but it hasn’t helped or Made a Difference!! Still Doesn’t Work 75% of the Time .. Not Happy.. Please try & Fix this ASAP or I’ll have to choose to take my business Elsewhere!!
Thank You Kindly In Advance!!
Functional, but has its quirks
I’ve only been using it a couple days, and for the most part it seems pretty reliable. Sometimes it drops the VPN connection after establishing and initial connection, but it usually recovers. I’m not sure if this is a problem with the app or the WiFi network I’m connecting to.
After installing the app, for reasons unknown, I could never connect to a server after accepting the terms and conditions. This went on for several hours even though I could access several other Norton sites. For whatever reason it finally started working. I was about to give up on it and try another app.
One minor annoyance that should be an easy enhancement would be to support landscape mode. This is especially needed for iPad users as it makes multitasking more cumbersome without it. The application stays in portrait mode even when the device is oriented in landscape mode.
