This app is great and all but a matter a fact,this app messes quite a lot of things up when I proceeded to use the app for bettersafety for my school and stuff. For instancethe app had screwed up my WiFi for a whileuntil I had a suspicion of the VPN messingwith it, and surely, the VPN had been making this problem. This problem is thatmy connection is slower than it usually hasto be but l really have no idea if it's the server l'm using, but surely this problemhas been bugging me the past days usingthis VPN I hope this doesn't happen to other people using this app. Using this appalso has quite a bit too much ad enforcement because every time you eithertap a selection, the ad pops up. I have ratedthis a three star not because of these problems with the app as further usage tothis app, hopefully you developers and/orpeople in use of this app either have maintenance of resolving this conflict orjust have no problem using this app because I do. I hope this app developmentgets stronger so that people are satisfiedwith this application, have a nice day andthanks for reading my review and problems,l would love to get feedback on this as thisapp is quite useful. Thank You!
Thought they deserved 5 stars
I pretty much literally NEVER leave reviews anymore, but I made an exception for this app. Ive downloaded ALOT of “FREE VPN” apps and all of them were deleted off my phone within a day or two because they just didn’t do what they claimed they did. But not this one! This app really does provide you with a FREE VPN, no data limits, no other limitations, and virtually NO ADS!
You can choose from servers all over the world allowing you to select a server near you in order to get a local IP with fast speeds, or you can select a server far far away in a different country in order to bypass certain restrictions you might have in your area. All the IPs I’ve used have worked perfect and the speed has been great.
I’ve seen some reviews complaining of ads...and I have NO IDEA why. The only time you see ANY ads is when you open the app to turn the VPN on and/or to change servers. The app then configures the VPN through your iPhone settings and that’s it, your set. Your VPN is now on and you can close the app and go about using your phone however you want with your brand new IP address! NO ADS popping up, no lame browser you have to use, no limitations.
Truly a great app and by far the best VPN app I have come across. Wanted to leave a review because I think the devs deserve credit and to say thank you for an awesome app!
Right away, connect slow and choppy, vpn looses connection regularly
I saw other reviews saying after a while things slowed down, but I figured with regular fixes to bugs and things like that maybe it won’t be that bad. Right away, trouble with my own WiFi connection. Same day as download, I had irregular connection issues. Normally my home WiFi connection has great speed, fast and reliable. Especially in specific areas(closest to router). Only like if I don’t restart my phone after a long period of time I’ll have issues, or there’s issues within the company in general. I saw all this because same day I downloaded, crashes, takes forever to connect to vpn, have had for a week and have deleted it. It’s not worth it. And it’s free. But it messes up your internet connection on your phone, and it’s always shutting off the vpn without me knowing. I’m like who knows how long it was off! I just checked cause my internet speed was better😅 and it was disconnected! A negative star if I could cause really it’s bad on internet and doesn’t work properly, so it’s useless. I’ve had to restart my phone like everyday which I never did before. Couldn’t even get to the App Store to write this review! Three bar connection, close range to router, restarted router, restart my phone and delete this app. Don’t do it, look into another vpn, I am💁♀️
My only regret is not trying this one sooner
I almost never leave reviews, it’s too time consuming and rarely am I wowed (or dismayed) enough to share my thoughts publicly. But I am so high on this app right now that I just need to express how awesome it is working (so far). I am in China and have been using another VPN app which renders other apps and social media so slow that I gave up and haven’t checked Instagram in a month. On a whim I decided to try another VPN, this one, with no hopes or expectations whatsoever after experiencing the dismal performance of the other. Well to my complete surprise, it is so fast that the pages are loading as though I am back in the US. My only regret is that I assumed all VPN apps were the same for a month and didn’t try this one sooner. Maybe it’s only fast when you first download it - who knows. But like me, it can’t hurt to try.
It Can’t Bypass Netflix’s Wall Anymore
When I first got this app, it worked marvelously. I’d connect to a country’s VPN, go on Netflix, and be satisfied. The ads, how it stops working after some time, it was all worth it for a free app that in the end, did exactly what it said it did (after all, having to connect and re-connect from time-to-time isn’t a very big con to the pro of a completely free, WORKING VPN app). However, after a few months of using this app, it can no longer get past Netflix’s wall. I’ll go on Netflix, and Netflix will detect the VPN. I truly don’t have the resources to pay for a VPN app, so I guess you can infer that I don’t have the resources aka MONEY to buy all the movies and shows I want to watch on Netflix from other countries (personally, I’d really like to watch the Ghibli movies because they’re not available on the U.S.’s version of Netflix). Please get this fixed, it breaks my heart that I can’t use this app for Netflix anymore! Thank you if you read this far :)
Basically, they collect some data, but mostly in relation to the app itself rather than whatever you may be browsing on the web. The ambiguous part is concerning law enforcement. They say the may collect data to comply with legal standards, but whether that means that they collect data if your local laws demand it, or whether it means that they’ll collect it if they’re told to by law enforcement, I do not know. If I find out, I’ll update the review, but for now I’ll leave a 4 star for making it difficult to find out.
I tried to wait until I heard back from them but no answer back so this is my final take on this vpn....Looking for a good vpn which this vpn is ok compared to others wanting you to watch videos to gain credits in order to have a vpn active, BUT this vpn doesn’t stay on on your phone goes into rest mode it turns off and then you have to turn it back on. Which I have to question the integrity of the company that makes this vpn. I contacted the company no reply waited about 2 to 3 weeks nothing. Also the so called super unlimited keeps tethering which doesn’t connect at all on wifi or cellular service it just tethers in the background stating connecting ...which that will kill your battery quick because it stays running to gain a connection it already happened to me and I had to delete it. Don’t even bother it may have a high download count but I strongly believe it was deleted as quick as it was downloaded. Also I strongly believe not many people know that this von turns off when your phone is resting .
Appreciate the Free App BUT...
I truly do appreciate the free app, but the advertisements and attempts to get you to upgrade to a paid plan are a tad incessant.
The developers are clearly making their buck off of paid advertisements. Therefore, when they consistently pop-up a message saying, “We’re giving you this awesome app for free, the least you could do is give us a review,” it feels a bit off-putting to me. To me, that makes me feel as if they’re trying to guilt the users of this advertisement-laden app into feeling bad about using it for free by presenting themselves as “altruistic.”
Maybe I sound overly critical but I’m giving them a solid 4 star review so I’m really just out here complaining.
And honestly, nobody really is going to give a crap about the way I “feel” about some random app. Honestly, I really don’t give a crap either and have no idea why I just spent this much of my writing this review. 💁🏻♂️
VPN App is Great
This is a great app and it’s truly free. No strings attached. I felt the least I could do was write about it for them. I’m totally writing this on my own and in my own words.
If you use the internet, then you should have and use a VPN. Even if you have one that you pay for, you should still download this and use VPN app. There’s nothing to lose, it’s 100% free.
If you are like me and live check to check and week to week. Then you will have those times when $10 or $12 may feed you or get you to work instead of for a VPN. Even in those times you can still count on this free VPN to protect your info over the internet. This app will never cost you a dime and it always works great.
It’s as easy to use as the expensive paid apps and works just as well as those.
Not great, to be honest
The VPN itself is ok, it’s not as powerful as other tools I’ve used, however. Without failure, this app will stop working after a certain amount of time left on; furthermore, part of the time when this happens, the VPN configurations stay on messing with my phone’s ability to use WiFi. I don’t know exactly how a VPN works but there is definitely a connection between leaving it on for long periods and a slow, if working, connection. Also, clicking on skip ads always brings me to safari to buy something but I’m fairly certain that’s my phone, not the app. Over all I think the app is fine totally works in general just giving information that’s usable, however to the devs, I don’t recommend wasting time and resources fixing anything I talk about because you’re already making the money. If you read all the way down here just download the app it’s free and you took too long on the first VPN don’t start scrolling.
