As a company they have a track record of fighting for online privacy and they share our dedication to internet safety and security.”

Very easy app to use to protect you from prying eyes. All you need to do is to modify a few changes in the settings to how you want to connect and have the app start automatically when you turn on you computer or phone and you are set and projected. The app has split Tunneling, Port forwarding, OpenVPN Network protection, DNS protection, IPv6 protection and many more. You have the option of choosing over 70 Countries and thousands of servers. The app's face is simple to use as well.

Generally reliable, but I am occasionally disconnected for unknown reasons. Annoying, but not fatal - so far. Update to developers: based on your initial reply to my review, 'Always On' has been enabled since I first installed the app. I am always connected to a Denver CO server. I never get an error message when a disconnect occurs. I don't know anything about using different protocols.

That doesn’t sound right. Could you please share some more details about these connection issues? Have you enabled "Always-on"? What specific servers did not work for you? Did you get any error messages? Have you tried switching protocols? Contact us through the 'Report an Issue' option in the app menu so we can help you troubleshoot further.

An update that was made some point in the last 72 hours has made it impossible to connect to any of the servers availableand with low traffic. The app design and functionality was perfect and now I can't even connect to anything. Tested the issue on 2 devices and 3 different internet connections and its all the same. Thank you

We're investigating the issue, not caused by any changes on our side. It is likely that the local ISPs and authorities are interfering with VPN connections, so it may not be possible for us to solve this. Some servers may continue working, and we're continuing efforts to bypass the block. Contact our support team so we can try to help you connect.
