I usually use Mulvad but wanted to try something new. This app uses almost 4x as much of my phone battery when running in the background while having significantly fewer servers and a higher price per month. When I signed up, it tried to force a renewing subscription instead of allowing me to pay as I go. I just lost three charging hours because of the app running in the background and I almost suspect they are using clients as part of a botnet. I will not be renewing service once it expires.

Works wonderfully on my phone never disconnected me even though I accidently left it on all night. Very simple easy to use The reason for giving it 2 stars is that it will not connect on my chromebook. Even the free vpns were able to connect me to a server. Cactus is great when it works but is litterally unusable on my other device.

Hope in the future they will add more good stable features, for example when you destroy the app from the screen, so it can work in the background. It works sometimes, but mostly just cut off. P.S. That's what you andwered me, is not the answer, just do what people say, and then you will get more likes and our attention
