How many devices can I install Gamban on?
You can install Gamban on all of your personal devices, subject to our terms of fair use.

Will I be able to remove Gamban from my device if I change my mind?
No, Gamban is designed to protect people who have gambling addictions, meaning they are likely to change their mind after installation.

Can I use Gamban on my work device?
While you can install it on your work device we don't recommend you do, since you might experience issues accessing work-related resources. If you really need to use Gamban on your work device, we recommend asking your company's IT department to review it and install it for you.

Why does gamban use a VPN?
Gamban uses a local VPN to re-configure your device's network settings in order to block gambling websites and apps. Your internet traffic does not go through this VPN, so it will not affect your geographic location or download speeds. You will not be able to use third-party VPN while Gamban is actively protecting your device.

Why does Gamban use an Accessibility Service?
Gamban uses an Accessibility Service in order to be able to automatically detect gambling content on your screen and prevent you from accessing it, as well as making it difficult to bypass your protection during your self-exclusion period. Gamban does not collect or transmit any behavioral or personal data.

Why does Gamban use the Device Administrator permission?
Gamban uses the Device Administrator permission in order to make it difficult to bypass and uninstall while your protection is active.

Very effective. But keep in mind u have to have it installed on all tablets or multiple phones u have. Because unprotected devices can still access games. Would like to see an app for PC. Because u can access games through pc. Would like there to be a subscription for multiple devices. But overall I am very impressed. Has kept me away from games. A+++++

I wish I could review the app but I couldn't get that far. Horrible sign up. They charged my card immediately instead of after the 7 day "free" trial. They also charged me in the wrong currency. It should have been about $3.29 Canadian. They charged my card $4.09 converting from Sterling. Thanks goodness I only pciked the monthly subscription. I had to cancel my credit card to get rid of the charge.

Hi Cindy, we apologise for this experience. Our website only supports payments in EUR, GBP, AUD, and USD. The prices in those currencies are already set and the conversion rate isn't controlled by us, but from your payment card provider.

This app blocks me from even opening my phone. I thought it was my phone but once i installed it on another device it did the same thing. If you have a swipe to unlock it doesn't work correctly. It's a big liability issue if you have an emergency and have an android with the swip to unlock feature and this won't let you access the ability to call for emergency help it on the hook for a lawsuit waiting to happen. Update Alarm was going off and i was unable to open my phone to shut it off.
