Connects 1% of the time
Kfkfhjsjskf,mjrje on 3/16/2018
So inconsistent
Ads, barely works
That honest kid on 3/16/2018
I can get some nice connection at times but other times I can’t load anything. Also, to connect I have to watch 2 ads, often the same ads. It doesn’t make sense, the major update applied a few months ago was terrible.

I love this app
Generally works well; some problems with stalled connections on iPhone
dfs83 on 3/15/2018
Been using on my Mac, iPad, and iPhone for about a year. 80% of time or so it works flawlessly. Occasional dropped or stalled connections in iOS version, especially when moving from WiFi to LTE connection. Problems are usually resolved by stopping then restarting the VPN.
Y’all rock !!
aleahrittel5515 on 3/15/2018
I use this app when i’m at school and ya bish can get on any app!!
Not useful
RUDE!!!! on 3/15/2018
I always have trouble with the connection when trying to use this app. I don’t recommend this if I ever use it.
Talley6 on 3/15/2018
It's great
YoMaMaHe on 3/14/2018
The vpn is good and fast but super glitchy. When you want it to work it won’t work and when you don’t want it on it goes on. Honestly I’m going to try other vpns.
Does nothing
PaleoClipper on 3/14/2018
It just sat there for a full hour trying to connect to hide my IP. Did nothing other than give me a spinning circle. Junk.
HeyImGayyy on 3/14/2018
Sometimes have trouble connecting and most of the time you can’t load anything with it.
jcaaak on 3/14/2018
i hope it works
麻花疼滚粗 on 3/13/2018
This app wants 5start. I don't use yet.I hope it can use during the special date. I'm in China
Great app
Cheernia2 on 3/12/2018
Great service that I absolutely needed before traveling out of the country. Have experienced some issues connecting, but I believe due to internet service / wi-fi available vs. HotspotVPN. Will continue to recommend to friends / family.
FlawlessAhhreddbone💞💘 on 3/12/2018
My phone has been disabled for weeks now an i can't download anything because it’s saying i have to pay for it.Can y’all please fix it.Thank you
They will not let me quit my subscription
Stewie From St Louie on 3/12/2018
I’ve emailed, called, etc etc etc .. very very unhappy with this situation
Joshy--2020-- on 3/12/2018
This helped me a lot for school because of the blocked pages
Tsubakiochoalovesanime on 3/12/2018
It takes a while to connect but apart from that great
$500 cash.
jdhdhsusbwhwhw on 3/11/2018
I only got the app because amazon said if I got it, I get $500 cash. And they weren’t lying. 😂😂
IT’s good!
The Plaga on 3/10/2018
It does what i need it to do, and thats what really matters!
Disconnecting my WiFi.
Devilschoir_BVB on 3/10/2018
I recently updated it, and it disconnects my WiFi. At home and at school.
Putty Tatt on 3/10/2018
I downloaded the app while in the states and the first time opening it up/turning it on in Hong Kong, a video appears on my phone that looked like Asian “cam girls”. I’m a female and this is a new phone...that video did not come from me. I immediately deleted the app and will try something else.
Angelrose2159 on 3/9/2018
I would not recommend using this because it got my phone an iPod hacked over 30 times now an every time I turn it off it always turns back on
Works in school!
Shake icicles on 3/9/2018
Great app, very helpful.
Refund because of an incident
Lovebasketball2805 on 3/9/2018
I deleted the app before it was a whole month and it still charged me $12.99. I want my money back
Don’t work for my iPhone 8
mxrider69 on 3/8/2018
It doesn’t work for my iPhone 8
NaTyia on 3/7/2018
Sydsquidrobo on 3/7/2018
I started using it about a year ago and it worked pretty well, but now it rarely ever works. I’ve tried erasing it and redownloading it and setting it up again, and it still won’t work. Every time I turn it on, it turns my WiFi off and it has in the top left corner of my phone the LTE symbol with the vpn symbol next to it, and it doesn’t work. It got to the point where I started using a different vpn, because it wasn’t working at all.
Dfh123 on 3/7/2018
This app is crap. If I did not have to have it in order to communicate with my family when in a particular West African country, then I would delete and never use again. The app constantly drops connection. I have run it along side my iPad (without the app), and my iPhone (iPhone 8 with the app) would consistently drop connection, while the iPad functioned perfectly. So frustrating that at times I want to throw my phone through the wall; but, I calm down and realize it’s not my phone, but rather this piece of crap app. Do not purchase unless you have to.
You get charged automatically
Billlllllllllbbob on 3/6/2018
After you get the free trial it starts automatically charging your account. 👎
It’s really great
Yrcnj on 3/6/2018
I love it
Goodiedoodiewiththehoodie on 3/6/2018
I love it so much!!!!
$asukeUchiha⚛️ on 3/5/2018
This works great on my phone for when I’m at school and want to go and watch my television after I finish my work, but when I came to the App Store on my MacBook and wanted to log in it asked me to pay for another subscription. I do not know if it is two different situations but it is definitely the same app.
Great app!
candylover110369780 on 3/5/2018
Love knowing that me stuff is secure! This app is simple & easy to use and even comes with a free trial. I would definitely recommend using this, its a safe & trustworthy app! It is very easy to open and navigate through the app, the placement of the menu is easy on your eyes so that its not overwhelming when opening upthe app like other VPN apps.
shakedown kakapo on 3/5/2018
The only reason I didn’t give it one star is because it’s the only one that works, but even then. The vpn disconnects itself randomly and when it’s connected it doesn’t work 75% of the time
Thought about app
Superstar 136 on 3/5/2018
Seems like a pretty good app to use when you do not have WiFi or need help securing a hotspot
The only time that you could be
123456Vs on 3/5/2018
The only time that you would have a second to do that In is that the best way for your parents is that they have to take a look into their eyes for the day you are the only ones to make a difference to the time and the people you are in the past is the only time that is ever happened and that is a great time for us and to do the job that is the only way you are in a great time for the best way you are the only way you are in a way that is the best and you have a lot more time in the way that your hair you have and you have to do a great year in your up way for your future success in your career your👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
Jyyel on 3/5/2018
Good app
Monique Alvarez on 3/5/2018
Yomarmar on 3/5/2018
Only vpn that actually works!
Haley_ayeee on 3/5/2018
I give it a 1 star because it’s such a bad app for me personally I tried deleting the app and reinstalling in and it just never connects theirs times where it connects and just stops working I tried getting in contact with the creators of the app itself and no one seems to give me a reason on why it’s not working
Unoptimized mess
electather on 3/5/2018
This app is by far one the worst apps i have used since switching to iPhone. In 6 hours it nearly consumed 40 percent of my battery. I had few connection problems and the loading animation for opening the app is looong! Not to mention this app is still not optimized for x. Ps. I am a premium user and connection problems is unacceptable since most of the other free apps are working flawlessly so much that i use those free apps more often that this one that i have paid for (back when i was using their android version)
Be careful guys they stole all my money
Mimotaktak on 3/4/2018
I activate the app and the they told me free for one week and then they stole all my apple credits ☹️ i will complained for what you did
Łà fēté
SWEATYRANGER655 on 3/3/2018
You guys charged $11.99 for a free subscription
Phantomkid777 on 3/2/2018
You guys have a bad system of doing thing charging for before the free subscription even ends
Helps A Lot
Slim Jim Billy on 3/2/2018
This app is always helping me have better connection and helps on my data limit
