Reviews From google play store

Edited: soon i come2know, this app provides feature to connect automatically when you turn mobile data on and it can be activated from setting option of app. I activated the same. In case i have activated all three options i.e. 1. secure network 2. Unsecured network 3. Mobile Network However, this app does not get activate automatically when I turn my mobile data or Mobile network "on". I hope Admin team will look in this and will resolve this asap, so i could change my Review feedback!


2019 been using this for more than 10 years now. Have a premium account. Best money I ever spent. They could do more to block attack pages that feature what made me decide to go premium. 2016 Working well since after the update because before the android app wasn't connecting and not signing in and kept going to the payment page. This is the best app out there to block malware. Hotspot is better than most if not all anti virus or security systems


This app is a spyware. In order to function It requires you to enable "Usage data access". By "allowing usage tracking" it monitors what other app you use in the background including other VPNs; and as a result it actively blocks any other vpn from connecting even when it's not running. (check its background data usage to see what I mean) If other VPN apps don't work on your phone it's because you installed this app. do your self a favour and uninstall this spyware.


I like it and it works well but I found out it connects me to Indonesia most of the time! I have the free version and I think we should at least be able to pick the country. Also it is annoying when it changes tha language because of what country it has picked.


it used to work really well. but right now, even though i purchased the year round option, the vpn won't show I'm premium anymore. It won't even let me pick an option to restore my purchase. I'm stuck on the screen with the option either to buy for a year or a month. please either fix this, or just give me back my money on this.


Watch out, while the price states $3.49 per month for 3 years, all of the money is taken at once as was done to me. I was told policy states it is all taken out at once on another page! REALLY? It also takes 5-10 business days to get said money back. Not good business practice. So they have my gas money while i walk 60 miles a day to work. NOT GOOD BUSINESS!!!!!


horrible.... it always shuts off randomly, also when doing anything if u get a snapchat notification or any other app it blocks all activities until you watch the ad


Its okay, lotta adds, based off of people dont get premium, people have diff tastes and it works jus find for me anyways. it works and its free even if its only 30 mins and a ten minute wait or watch an ad. ads support em. dont complain if you use it.


Still not relevant information in Play Store about it. Still very disappointing! You would get much better reaction, if you would just add two letters after the word "free" - US, in the app name. This would be accurate and fair. and wouldn't waist my time downloading it. Regards.


1 star because you guys make downloads through fake and illigal way. Now I can see why this game have so many downloads


It used to be great but now I have to watch a video every 30 minutes or wait 10 minutes to get free data again. Why was this changed? When I first downloaded the app this did not happen. fix it.


Watch out for this shady app. I installed some other apps on my phone, and somehow this one was installed at the same time, not by my choice. I simply didn't pay attention. Now I've been charged $69.95 for some yearly subscription that I didn't ask for or want!!! I am contacting my bank about this fraudulent charge and lodging a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.


do not try to install. they are thieves. I subscribed for 1 free week, it did not work properly so i uninstalled it. then after 6 days they deduct 280 SR from my card. when I installed it again I could not sign in. when I contacted the support to recover my premium account they told me we do not has any payment from you. when I sent them payment proof they did not reply.


The trial of this app is great. But, after you pay for the actual app you get flooded with ads each time you turn it on. Its a waste of money. I wouldn't suggest anyone to buy this app. DON'T BUY!!!


this app is absolute TRASH. it gives you ads afters ads each time you open an app. it disrupts me when texting. gaming. EVERYTHING. i was filing my taxes at one time n it just came out of no where n blocked my googlr chrome session n then my app crashed. I hate this app. go to another vpn app this one is garbage now


Works in general, but uses a time wasting pop up. Every time I open Google Chrome or Youtube, a pop up appears saying that my session is protected, shows an ad, then says something related to the first part, before exiting. It is extremely annoying when I just want to look up a definition or google somethng simple really fast and I lose 10 seconds of my time. All there really needs to be is an ad quickly appearing and then nothing else happens after that.


I have paid for a full year subscription and I am still receiving pop up ads. someone offer q solution please. it is telling me my login info is wrong to.


7 days free trail then y u debit my cash. cheating app dont download.. cheating app.. i need my money back


This Hot Spot Is Great But It just got my cricket account suspended and they charging us 60$ just to get our subscribstion back and you need to be careful because hot spot can cost your lots of money and for cricket you just need to notify us and tell us "Hey You Can Use Hot Spot Please Stop" But no And that why we don't use cricket any more. But all and all Hot Spot Is Amazing and not saying it's bad just cricket is bad.


I think it works great. one criticism is that I would like to be able to access the device cleaning/battery extender without turning on the VPN. if there ie way to do that and I've missed it let me know
