  • (2024-01-28) Hoang Viet Nguyen: Does this still get updates?
  • (2023-11-28) George Jetson: It's a real VPN for free!!! It passes all the tests on our end. Just make sure you enable WebRTC blocker.
  • (2023-11-27) Shub Shah: Fastest VPN , I have ever tried
  • (2023-11-26) Анатолий Кинг: Не стабільність в роботі, постійно треба вимикати/вмикати щоб відновилось з'єднання із сайтами. Дуже повільний. Раніше працював без нарікань, зараз користуватись просто не можливо. Нажаль, у пошуках альтернативи. Зараз взагалі не працює, білий екран. Видаляю. Не рекомендую )
  • (2023-11-23) BeardBeat aka BorodaBeat Production: белый экран и всё
  • (2023-11-09) Sagar S: Got this app just for testing purpose and not gonna lie, it sucks. Even my google search results are returning Error 403 "Your client does not have permission to get URL XYZ from this server". Also, it wants me to not only login to up my limit to 500 MB, but also the desktop application for 500MB + 500 MB (extra) through desktop applications. I did not find the setting to automatically turn the extension on while accessing particular sites as mentioned in the intro, so I'm gonna assume that it's a Pro feature for the paid users. The so called fastest VPN is no doubt a lie. (Beware!) I have 3 VPN's installed on my desktop, and neither of those is a popular one or a part of some popular tech site listicle, but they all work well and 2 of them have given me up to 30-35 Mbps speeds on some of their servers, including Canada, Germany, Netherlands, UK, Ireland and Singapore. One of them is Browsec which is popular and secure, but it's speeds on the US server in just pathetic. It works but only for browsing, whereas with the other two can easily stream 1080p+ 60 fps vid. Although they have 6M+ and 8M+ user base, as I checked yesterday with 5/5 rating (looks like), they never make it to the top search results for some reason. Perhaps, they're harming Google's business?.
  • (2023-11-07) Kraken Shtime: Worst Programm in the history of mankind!! While gaming it spontanously opens by itself and crashes your Game!! If i could i would give it -5 Stars. Please dont download this stupid vpn. :)
  • (2023-11-04) Bhavesh goud Bodige: go for it dattebayo!!!
  • (2023-11-04) Len Zeoli: Could not live without it. Always works correctly. It saves me so much time with complex passwords and therefore is for safety as well as being way better than my memory or a sheet of paper.

  • (2023-11-02) Bookworm Haven: Great !!
  • (2023-10-29) John Elstone: Have to reinstall the Chrome Extension every time due to connect button not working
  • (2023-10-25) Nishchay Shah: While the 2 stars are for the speed the app gives to premium users, its an absolute shame that there is no logout button for its chrome extension. The app always blows up if left on overnight. Next morning it wont let me access, the power button gets greyed out. And the only way to revive it is reinstall. So I need to reinstall the app everyday, its a pain! And there is no "Remember me" option either. I need to login everyday. Why! Please fix this. Going to have to unsubscribe.

  • (2023-09-01) sara sara: It works great in opening blocked websites but recently Google search results won't show until I stop the vpn, it happens with other vpns too. So I guess the problem is in Google itself. Hopefully there will be a way to fix this cause it's so annoying.

  • (2022-03-10, v:5.0.4) Nejat Günaydın: Not working on Opera for a while
    It was working before, but for a while, this extension is not working on Opera browser. In theory, it must work, thank to extension at https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/install-chrome-extensions/ . But for more than a month, it is not working. Check app's feedback, so many people (including me) says that it is not working and it opens a popup that asks username and password again and again, and popup just disapears with a no-connection issue, a blank page... Please take a look and fix this issue.
