  • So Far, Solid

    By NobodyUnoe
    I’ve recently switched to Norton’s VPN service from Hotspot VPN, and so far am very pleased. Always on “public” unsecured WiFi, a reliable VPN is a necessity here, and Hotspot VPN fell miserably short over the course of a year, so I made the switch. I’m signed up for 5 simultaneous devices/computers directly through Norton, not the single device plan offered through the Apple App Store- it’s much more preferable. Quick to connect, no discernible lag, and streaming video sites appear to take no issue with it. After an extremely unpleasant year of fruitlessly battling with passive aggressive misogynistic tech support from Hotspot Shield because it didn’t deliver as promised - off and on flickering connections, inability to connect, and completely incompatible with my T-Mobile cellular data for several months- I’d have to uninstall it from my iPhone just to use data, and problems with it blocking its own updating, and getting hacked clean through it on my PC, I dumped them. Across the board, Hotspot Shield was awful. Norton so far (it’s been only 2 weeks) has been peaceful and uneventful, humming unobtrusively in the background like a good VPN service should. I don’t want to know how friendly their support is- I don’t ever want to find it necessary to contact them. I just want it to perform as it’s supposed to, and it looks like old reliable Norton is going to deliver.

    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.
  • Just don’t even bother to download it

    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!!!
  • A few suggested ideas

    By Ted E Bear In October outside
    Can you please allow the ad tracker to not just stop targeted ads but stop all ads together. Also could you allow it to work with Alternate DNS so that the ads do get blocked. I use this app but to avoid the ads in most apps I have to also use AdClear by Seven Networks. I use the DNS based feature only in AdClear as the AdClear DNS feature uses Encrypted DNS that blocks Google based ads and other ads ad well when you ad a custom based DNS such ad Alternate DNS. I would also like you guys to ad a Porn and Adult site blocker in your VPN to avoid kids who need a vpn to say access email for emergencies such as the recent school shootings when some schools block the email ports on the public WiFi. It would be really nice to add filters in your VPN app that can be just like a governor for impulsive people and people who want to avoid the filthy stuff on the web. Otherwise it is a good app.
  • STOLE MY MONEY

    By Dayna.rodri
    Downloaded this app and didn't do it for me. Closed my account and deleted the app. Surprise surprise, wells later they charged $32 from my debit card. I called Apple because I was confused why I was charged. They told me it was the app the be that had charged a membership fee, it was so hard to find a phone number for Norton! Turns out they do not have Customer Service..? No wonder why! I had to call technical support, asked to be directed to someone else for some customer service. He was rude and asked if he could know what I was calling about, I explained and he's telling me to call Apple, that they do not have an app for iPhones... what? I explained I already spoke to them and that I needed to talk to someone from Norton because I did not approved that transaction. He just stayed quite. I asked for a phone number amor be transfer and he told me NO. I wouldn't trust this app if I was you. Not even to see if it works for you. Because if it doesn't, they are gonna charge you anyways for trying the thing out! Good luck!
  • Not bad. Better than Kaspersky.

    By Blstrn
    I dumped Kaspersky Total Security 2018 for Norton because it had the same features. So far, I have not had a problem with either the Windows 10 X64 program nor any iOS programs for the internet security. That makes me happy. The only thing I would discuss is that the password program doesn’t always do what you ask or completely ignores when you enter in new information. There is sync option and I assume it automatic upon login but not sure. Otherwise, this has not been a problem like the last program. The last thing is, (I know the answer, this is rhetorical) why in the hell can we not US based customer service. Culturally, we understand our problems and needs better than xxxxxxistan, Phillipines, India, where ever I end up.
  • This has problems...

    I’ve been using this for about a week. Once this is installed on my iPad Pro 12.9: Using my SlingBox is not possible with my iPad mirroring to my Apple TV. It worked flawlessly before. Trying to use the FiOS mobile app, at home connected to my Fios router, it cannot find the set top box. It will not allow me to turn off the VPN and remain connected. Lately it just keeps turning itself back on, after I turn it off. Even when I can get it turned off, I have no internet connectivity both with the WiFi AND Cellular service. When I turn this software off, it should stay off until I turn it back on. It should not interfere with my internet connection when I turn it off! I have to uninstall the app to get my internet back. I’ve done this three times when I really need the connection and it would not let me get to the internet. As soon as I uninstall it, my FiOS app works fine. I am in my own house and I can’t turn it off. This should be fixed. I am a paying subscriber for other Norton products, and I just signed up to pay for this. Please get on these problems quickly. I was trying to get directions using google maps on my phone, and the VPN was preventing getting the directions. I deleted the app, and the directions came through immediately.

But I am trying ... any tips on performing this task the easiest would be appreciated:) thank you overall great app ... just don’t get why my phone keeps deleting the entire thing ??
  • Have to force close and restart

    By cash balances
    After the last update, about a week ago I have to force close and restart the app on iPhone and iPad because the screen will not let me click on the turn on vpn icon? Basically if the app is already open in the background and the vpn disconnects I cannot reconnect without closing and reopening the app because the screen is dead and will not let me click on connect. Same problem on iPhone and iPad app running iOS 12. Have already tried logging out and back in. Have already deleted and reinstalled the app on both devices. App is basically worthless after last update. Please fix for those of us that travel for a living and use a vpn 24/7 in hotels and airports where the Wi-Fi automatically logs out out when you close your phone because this bug is literally wasting a hour of my time every day!
