It said I purchased it even though I only went for the seven day trial. If any money had been given, please give it back. I didn't ask for full permission and I only needed an antivirus. Thank you!

Washisidncbg on 10/16/2017
Oh my god so my school blocked Snapchat and other social media. But this app lets me use Snapchat and everything else. And if you watch all the adds, which there isn’t even that many, you can do everything you want to do. I love this app so much and definitely a 5 star rating
Ahmed Adel NEGM on 10/16/2017
Good Application but some times it's not responding
great but bad at my school
Videocreater on 10/16/2017
this app is great for everywhere else but it’s horrible at my school, i try to connect to it and it says it doesn’t work so then i’ll tap diagnose issue and then as soon as it works my wifi goes away and then i’ll go back to my settings and my wifi will turn back on it’s a big problem because i always run over my data because this app isn’t working for me

yes it good
Shameless advertising
Eko3alpha on 10/16/2017
Your scare ads claiming that my iPhone has a Trojan is shameful. Out of curiosity I inspected the “download” link and of course it took me to the App Store. This is nothing but coercive scare tactics and an out right lie. No better then those pop ups claiming your PC is infested with malware.

Buggy, Got Hacked, Worthless Support
NobodyUnoe on 10/14/2017
Recently my PC was hacked while this was running (premium paid lets you use it on a few devices at a time), and though there's no virus/trojan and I didn't give permission nor open anything suspect, on a public connection I watched my computer start browsing through itself, launch my camera and try to run location services, but that's "impossible". That's what it's designed to protect against. Their support is dismissive, self righteous, and invalidating. You get ignored and given the run around passive-aggressively until you give up and walk away. I went for this VPN for protection for my iPhone, because I live on public connections, and discovered the bonus, unlocking Japanese music ads on YouTube that have fallen victim to regional blocking due to YouTube Red. The reality: after several months of being a premium user, it's constantly blocking web access and OS update installations with bugs. YouTube's battle against unblocking is winning, but it's my imagination and incompetence as a user, not the app being defeated, even though they knock most unblockers out of the water. Additionally, for the past several months it's been incompatible with my iPhone 6s on T-mobile data- it never ending cycles connected, not connected, connected, not connected, and with the new design, we're right back to square one with an old issue: you're not allowed to tell it "no". It demands to connect and can't be stopped until you delete it. A deleted VPN is great protection, eh? And again, it’s my incompetence, not a coding issue for them to correct. This never got fixed. If it's not doing its job, it's hindering functionality, and the assistance is hurtful and useless, what's the point of being a customer? My year paid subscription via credit card on their website has now lapsed, and their site has been altered recently, making the billing and subscription status inaccessible on iPhone 6s/Safari browser, making it impossible to cancel my subscription which renewed automatically and billed without my consent, unless I wrote to them... which I did. Though they’re refunding it eventually (5-10 days), the last interaction from their support exemplified their treatment: we are correct, and you are wrong. I’m switching to Norton’s VPN service.
One Of The Best VPN For MOBILE Devices!
iLikeMeSomPie on 10/14/2017
First let’s start out by giving the app developers a “WOW! Wonderful Job!”, this is coming from a guy who knows how to hack and code and I always have to stay safe and secure on the internet. This VPN is worth downloading, not only that but the VPN speeds are skyrocket! Most VPN’s on the market reduce speeds and have horrible service. This app definitely deserves a 5/5 star rating, with that being said (5/5 for speeds) and (5/5 for service and smoothness) thanks for making such a wonderful VPN. -Gabe E.
Continuously improving! Excellent product and customer service
DaBigBadDad on 10/14/2017
I have been using this VPN for 4 years and it is a solid, trouble-free app. Rarely have I ever had trouble connecting or configuring. When I was out of the country and found myself locked out of the US websites I wanted to visit, I installed the app and was on the sites within 5 minutes. I use HotSpot Shield on my iPhone, Mac and a Windows laptop. Knowing I can trust that each of them is automatically protected when they are used in public settings is definitely reassuring. The only thing I have had difficulty doing is tethering either laptop to my iPhone as the data transfer rate drops significantly. Customer Service was quick to respond that the app is not designed to support tethering at this time. I rarely write reviews but this is a great app and worth the couple minutes it took to write this review.
