Used to love this app, enough to actually pay for it. But the latest "update" has removed it's most useful feature - I can no longer set connection rules. This makes the app no better than a free toy and is a massive backwards step. If this is the direction Avast are taking from now on, my subscription won't be getting renewed. In all honesty this seems like a good reason to request a refund as the tool I paid for has been taken away.
I'm afraid i have to agree with the reviews below. The old version was much better. Now the app is verry unstable. It is ashame because the old version worked great. Also this app requires a monthly fee so you would expect is to work properly. There are alot of apps offering the same service with better value for money. I will keep this one for now but if Avast's developers dont fix it soon i will change to Mcafee or someome like that.
It was great when I first signed up, the the update came....now you cannot change connection points, it constantly disconnects itself and I cannot set it to reconnect AND it eats up SOOOOOO much data. The update took away all user preferences. I am sad I spent the $20 on this, I have uninstalled and found something much better for cheaper.
Well my subscription renewed automatically on my tablet as that was what I was using when it decided to update but it won't update on my phone, it's trying to force me to buy it again and when I click on already purchased it asks for a voucher code to buy it again. I'll give it a couple of days then apply for a refund if it doesn't update. Maddening as I'm needing to use public WiFi at the moment.Not happy!
Extremely disappointed by the latest update which removed SSID based auto connect and even more disappointed by the lack of response to my customer care tickets. Initially they said that they don't have a record of my purchases. And then after furnishing proof of purchase going back 2 years, they stopped responding. I will be canceling my subscription and will be in the market for SSID based auto connect VPNs for a reasonable subscription fee.
Since the latest update, it doesn't auto connect when the phone connects to wifi. Very annoying. Also the connection settings have gone, which allowed you to have certain trusted wifi have no VPN action taken. Very disappointing and appears to be a downgrade not an upgrade to the app. Wish I hadn't paid for this now. Before the update, this vpn app was good.
