It’s ok but sometimes if you are using it the connectivity does not work too well. I know most people out there use vpn in school and this vpn sometimes works but you may lag out. Overall it’s not bad but have some connectivity issues at times.
Works Good

Works really good, I recommend it.

Fix your stupid app
Won’t connect to internet when I connect to vpn
A apple lover on 12/15/2017
When I connect to the vpn, it disconnects me from my wifi
Treating elite members like garbage!
HonestReviewTrue on 12/14/2017
I bought the elite about 15 days ago. In my apple account it says the subscription expires weeks from now. I am signed in to the Apple ID I made the purchase with and yet it tells me my Apple ID has no recognized account with an elite subscription. Contacting them is not working. When I try to send for contact help it tells me MY internet connection is at fault! There is no problem with my internet connection, the problem is with this app and it’s creators.
What is it for?
Alfonso Mtz on 12/14/2017
Does it give me like free internet or something or does it just make my internet faster??
Great app!!
DV 614 on 12/14/2017
I love this app and how useful it is. Hands down the best VPN app I’ve ever used.
Rhygg on 12/14/2017
Never works . It's absolutely annoying ever since they updated it
Good app, but...
ToupsSc on 12/14/2017
I love this app! I would give it five stars, but the only problem is every time I get this app, it completely destroys my Snapchat. The other day, it wouldn’t let me post on my Snapchat, even cough the internet was fine, and it made the app glitch. As soon as I deleted VPN, however, Snapchat began to function properly. How can I fix this? Other than that one problem, great app!!!
Good app

تقريبا تمام وى پى ان هاى موجود در اپل استور رو براى استفاده در اپ تيدال امتحان كردم و به دو تاشون رسيدم يكى همين يكى هم اكسپرس وى پى ان ! و به جرات مى تونم بگم هم از لحاظ سرعت و هم قيمت ، هات اسپات بهترينه
Marcm8434 on 12/14/2017
That's pretty good
12fpi23 on 12/14/2017
It was good for a while. Then it started turning off my WiFi when I tried to connect. Oh by the way, you guys owe me 80 million in zynga poker.... I’ll be waiting.

The best
jdyka kierra on 12/13/2017
This vpn is trash, I wouldn’t suggest anyone get this. It never connects & if it does, it’s extremely slow.
I love you hss vahid 35 male from Iran 🇮🇷 cant go on without you
vahid khd on 12/13/2017
Fast and efficient
DazShayd on 12/12/2017
nuff said. Not sure if it’s the best but it’ll definitely do.
Unreliable. Gets dropped very often
USR #5 on 12/12/2017
I'm glad there is such service been provided free of charge. But I'd rather have nothing than something throw you off often.
Love it
NonnaChandler on 12/12/2017
I love this app!! It's so fast and easy to use!
Hardly works
Cv3201 on 12/12/2017
It worked for the first day then after that I deleted and redownloaded the app and couldn't connect
The Worst App Ever To Exist
Hugobay on 12/12/2017
This app gave me a hard time and ads run the whole app. This vpn is 100% useless and does not work. DO NOT DOWNLOAD
PURPPDANK on 12/12/2017

I loved this app before It all went downhill I got a lot of ads
Awful Start 😡😡😡
rleon1114 on 12/11/2017
The VPN keeps disconnecting without any reason, and when I connect a private WiFi server, it just refuses to connect, it’s super annoying. This VPN deserves a 1 star for being the buggiest vpn I used. This is trash!!!
sometimes works
Micah🐅💯 on 12/11/2017
when it works it really good but sometimes it won't let me connect
Drops wifi connection
Dhejacf on 12/11/2017
When the app works, it works really well, but the issue here is getting it to work. Whenever I try to connect the VPN it will drop the wifi connection so the VPN has nothing to connect to. It rarely works and is very frustrating, I even spent the 13$ for premium which didn't help. Very upset about this app because it could be so good if it didn't have this issue.

Best game
matthe246 on 12/10/2017
Got to give 5 stars
Captived two on 12/10/2017
When I first installed and bought the premium version I couldn’t have been happier. That was back in Jan 2017. Since September I’ve not been able to use this app. Every time I try it says I have no internet connection. Once I disconnect from the app I fly through the internet at over 100mbps. I’ve reported this numerous times. Still, not working. And it now the middle of December.
One of the Best VPN services on the App Store
FireFury78 on 12/10/2017
I've been using Hotspot VPN for as long as I can remember. Their service has been consistent for the duration I've been using this app. I highly recommend this app to anyone looking for a free VPN service. Updates are always improvements and their connection service is always fast. Keep up the good work devs!
God Awful.
69boner on 12/9/2017
Since I’ve had an account with Apple I have never written a review for any app, whether it was great or terrible. This app is the 1st ever review I’ve ever written in 6 years. THIS APP IS F**KING BAD!! Not only does it take forever to load or just not work at all but the ads are unbearable. Every time I opened the app there was a 30 second ad which would’ve been alright if the app even worked....Don’t get this app and then on top of all of that crap they push for you to get premium all over the app. Please don’t make the same mistake I made this turned into a rant but to all of you that take the time to actually read this be warned.
