App Reviews

  • Takes too much control, other issues

    2
    By SHK109
    The vpn connects quickly and reliably in most circumstances. VPN does not seem to generally slow down internet processes either. That is good. However, at some locations such as some hotels and restaurants, their WiFi will not let me connect when the VPN is on. Also some search engines will not work when the VPN is on and make me identify items in pictures or other processes to prove I’m a real person rather than a computer if I want to proceed. Obviously VPN is detectable by WiFi networks and search engines. But the most annoying problem is that the VPN app occasionally tries to force me to rate it with a pop up that won’t go away. It won’t let me turn it off, even from my iPad settings this most recent time. And it only gives canned answers to choose between in rating rather than using your own words. So I went to App Store to write this review so I could say what I want about all this. Way too controlling. The canned pop up is still on my screen and VPN won’t disconnect, even in settings. Hopefully will resolve at some point but I don’t know. May delete app, lose balance of paid subscription and find another less controlling VPN app. If you can overlook the above problems, app is fast and reliable.
  • Continuously improving! Excellent product and customer service

    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.
  • A constant battle while in China

    By Jayni123
    The VPN worked fine at home in the US, but not while I actually needed it. In Shanghai and Qingdao I needed to use the VPN for accessing any websites, translator apps, etc. that I could normally from home. It took me at least 10 minutes to get it to work every time, closing and restarting the app, trying from different servers *if* it connected, and often being told I had no internet (with three full WiFi bars) or that they were diagnosing problems & to try again later... which still didn’t work after 24 hours. Overall I was lucky if it even worked at all, let alone for longer than 5 minutes. It would often drop me from my WiFi as it “connected”, repeatedly, and caused me to go back through the whole process mentioned above every five minutes (or less!) I had success with this VPN only twice for 30 minutes; but it was hell to get it there. To think I payed $13 for this kind of hassle. What a waste.
  • Works most of the time, some minor issues

    By FiddlerOfTheForest
    This works a majority of the time, with some minor issues that you can fix yourself if needed. Sometimes the VPN takes forever to connect, or secures your LTE/3g connection instead of the WiFi, even when you’re connected to the WiFi. Other times it secures the connection, but the download and upload are extremely slow and never improve. If any of this happens, usually a reinstall does the trick. One other issue is when you walk away from the WiFi you have secured, it usually glitches out the app and your network in general. It usually fixes itself, but if not, a reinstall or network setting reset fixes this issue. One thing I’d like to see with this app is a way to cancel a connection you’re attempting. Sometimes I accidentally reconnect after disconnecting and I have to wait for it to reconnect again before I can get out.
  • Drops Connection

    3
    By Itsyaboydjteach
    When it works this VPN barely hits my performance and I trust their payment model enough to believe they aren’t selling my data. That being said, the VPN itself is so unstable I wonder how much security I’m actually gaining. Two issues here: 1) The VPN randomly drops connection when online, and though it resets, I am obviously losing VPN status which I assume allows the sites I’m visiting to log my IP and activity while it’s down. 2) It’s hard to turn off. There are obviously circumstances where a VPN isn’t needed or desired, especially a free one. However, when I try to turn it off, this VPN often switches back on by itself and I cannot get it to remain off. In fact this is my second download. I deleted it the first time to see if that would fix the issue. However I see that I’m not the only one having that issue. Pro tip: don’t rely on this if you have something truly sensitive flowing over your traffic.
  • Used to be Good

    It’s trash now. It used to be simple, reliable, and more importantly versatile (able to be used everywhere) with stable connection. Now they added a fancy button that doesn’t turn off when you want it to. Now it’s connection randomly drops. Now I cant even use it at school anymore. It works for a little bit then it does this annoying thing where it says its connected, but when I go on any app it “freezes” Like there’s a little clock thing in the middle of the button and it works when on the app but it clearly stops when you go off of it. On top of that, it has these fits where it won’t connect at all. Customer Support is a no as well. I understand having special features for premium version but denying people customer service for the app as a whole and not just premium is a scummy thing to do. The app is trash now. The ONLY reason I keep this app is cause it’s pretty much the only one that semi-works. As soon as I find a better one you better believe this is getting deleted.
  • BAD Design!

    1
    By Justsayin1324
    What used to be a simple and fairly reliable app is now nothing but an annoying headache. THERE IS NO WAY TO TURN IT OFF, if for example the connection is slow and you’d rather just connect to the net without a VPN for speeds sake. Even if you turn the vpn button in the ipad setting to off, it will automatically TURN ITSELF BACK ON, without user permission. This has always been a problem but I use to consider it minor because one could delete the app and re-download it from the app store as needed. EXCEPT, now instead of giving the option of logging in after downloading it is ONLY set up to force you to subscribe—if you already have an account, resubscribe. Even if you ALREADY PAID for a multi-device plan through your computer. I got charged twice basically because the app designers are too stupid to give the user the option to turn the VPN ON and OFF at will!
  • Only nice with premium.

    By Emily Student
    I am in high school, and the phone I have I earned my own money to purchase. My family doesn’t have lots of money and we don’t have any payment accounts set up on a credit card. I use this VPN to access the internet at school to check grades and get assignments, but it stopped working for me. I don’t click 7 day trial, just kept clicking the X. Now it’s not working all for me which is horrible. I can’t find a single other VPN that works for me , believe me I’ve tried, and the fact that I have to spend money to get this to work is sad. I need this to help my education and paying it isn’t an option.
  • Cycling VPN connection prevents data connect

    2
    By Wuzhere2
    I have the paid subscription of Hotspot VPN. Sometimes when I transition between WiFi to cellular connection, the VPN starts cycling connect/disconnect. This prevents me from getting a data connection. In this situation, I could not get a GPS app /server connection when I really needed it, even though I had a strong cellular signal. After troubleshooting, I figured out it was the VPN, so was able to turn it off and connect. This happened again this past week. The only problem this time was that I was unable to turn Hotspot VPN off. Every time I tried to do this in settings, including “connect on demand”, it would come back on within a few seconds. I finally had to delete the app so I could connect to a server and use my GPS app.
  • Great service 5 - ⭐️’s

    By Lokilovesjash
    💁‍♂️ I love this app! My privacy and personal information is important to me. By using this service you can always have that piece of mind, that your dada is protected. With all the data miners, hackers, these days... these tools have become essential. I’d also like to add that there are numerous VPN apps on the market. But this one is by far the the best I’ve used. Also the interface is super easy to navigate, and runs smoothly. Customer service is always there to help and with a kindly manor. I would recommend this app to anyone for your VPN needs. Keep up the good work guys 👍👍
