Google Play Reviews

  1. guest-avatar

    It used to be good, but recently the mobile version stopped working. however the Windows desktop version is still working. So I think it is not because the access block from the government. please fix it. another thought, can I choose the proxy server from a list? Sometime it's Important.

  2. guest-avatar

    It works but the proxy all traffic option prevents some apps and web pages from being able to load. It gets frustrating. Making all network connections private is quite necessary for today's internet world but it's almost impossible to reap the benefits of "proxy all traffic".

  3. guest-avatar

    Horrible app on Mobile phone. Rarely be able to connect and would be disconnected automatically. Do not recommend to subscribe its pro service because they have no customer service at all and no one would reply to your email and feedback.

  4. guest-avatar

    It works perfectly when you try the trial version and once you pay for professional version, it is always down. I have reported the issue several times and got no reponse.

  5. guest-avatar

    the mobile version has stopped working since Feb 2020. luckily My plan will end soon. I am not going to renew it.

  6. guest-avatar

    Anuragh Ragidimilli


    It used to be work great on mobile devices but nowadays it's not worth at all

  7. guest-avatar

    It connects but all websites I tried to use have just forcefully closed the connection and shows that I am not connected to the Internet

  8. guest-avatar

    stopped working after I madr the purchase. Please fix it or refund me asap. Update: stopped working since two days ago. I am a paid user, please fix it!!!

  9. guest-avatar

    Can't chose which network to connect. Blocked from time to time. Each time I'm pissed off and wanna come here to give a one star comment, I can not. Cause I'm blocked, obviously.

  10. guest-avatar

    Quick & Useful, Very easy to access. Install and enjoy.

  11. guest-avatar

    For me the connection is good but the problem is memory leak and high CPU usage. Makes all my phones sluggish.

  12. guest-avatar

    Before it was working properly now I can't even open YouTube or any website. Really bad

  13. guest-avatar

    Amir hossein Karimi


    Smart location??? Its stopid application I have seen ever! I am at Iran and app select Iran for VPN location!!!!!!!

  14. guest-avatar

    It's good. Thanks 😘 UPDATE: Clearly the service is lack of maintenance. Very disappointed about it. I think I have wasted a lot of money on it.

    Wow Highly recommended for anyone looking for a Speed increase in there WiFi, Phone, and your data is protected. 1000⭐ if i could

  16. guest-avatar

    It's funny enough that I'm using a free VPN to leave a comment on my paid Lantern VPN. Mobile version is not working. Not going to renew subscription.

  17. guest-avatar

    Awesome best VPN ever I can access everything but youtube needs too much internet and lantern VPN has enough internet super good app goodbye.

  18. guest-avatar

    Very Fast VPN but monthly limited data usage for the trial one on pc.

  19. guest-avatar

    It connects but it never do what it has to do, my whole internet stops even whats app not works, shows no internet after connecting to this Lantern

  21. guest-avatar

    Sometimes it doesn't work, e.g. I use another vpn to write this comment.

  22. guest-avatar

    But sometimes its not working But today is updating and working at past

    mohammadhossein akhiani


    Sorry this app doesn't work and my YouTube is closed , perhaps needs updating...or something else...please help!

    Please DONOT pay for this useless app. This app doesn't connect any sites. They LIED and attracted me to become their paid customer. There's no customer support for this worst app. Neither they reply to your email !

    It use to work great but recently automatically disconnects

  27. guest-avatar

    Connection can be established. But there is no data. What the hell....

  28. guest-avatar

    I wonder why would it take up 1 gigabyte of memory when running? This is not a gaming PC with 32G of RAM, this is a phone.

  29. guest-avatar

    The best vpn,if upgrade faster than resent

  30. guest-avatar

    Like every VPN, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. What's ironic is that you have to update the app through Play Store. Where I am Google services are blocked, which means I actually need a VPN to update my VPN. It'd be nice to create alternative download links, the ones on Github are not up-to-date. Edit: The Github page should have a version history so we can know the last version. Edit 2: I just wish the customer service was more reactive and warn us when the network is unstable so we don't check randomly every time.

  31. guest-avatar

    one star is more for this app.. waste of time to download it and waste of data...

  32. guest-avatar

    No stars, useless, connects but no data transfer. Plz explain??

  33. guest-avatar

    Jordan Peterson


    I bought the service for a year, but it doesn't work in a month.Guess what?I erased the data from the software, and it identified me as a free user and worked again.But after a minute,I identified as pro,then it stopped working.

  36. guest-avatar

    very bad, not working on many restricted site

  37. guest-avatar

    It's a good tool for international netsurf. While still not very smooth when using in China area. It will somehow trigger the great firewall to stop the net service of any kind if you use it using a wifi on Android device.

  38. guest-avatar

    Amazing vpn ever..thanks a lot..

  39. guest-avatar

    As soon as I paid for the one year plan, it stopped working. It has been more than a week that I'm trying to get it to work, but it just wouldn't. No response from the support team too. I would like a refund!!!!

  40. guest-avatar

    It's the Speedest VPN available for free

  41. guest-avatar

    Faraz Farbakhsh


    Terrible VPN! Automatically disconnects all the time!

  42. guest-avatar

    This is the best vpn i have ever seen and used but you can improve sth about update problems.thanks.

  43. guest-avatar

    I would not change this score before you fix connection in china mainland, I can not open any website in HK way, and most time I open lantern, it does not work.

  44. guest-avatar

    Just soso... I can not choose a certain server, it is random, but... It is better than before, we can not use

  45. guest-avatar

    This vpn is amazing! Since it's free and no ads I am worried if this app using my privacy, but at the end it is an amazing vpn!

  46. guest-avatar

    This app blocks out my wifi! When I change vpns my phone works perfect! Not good 😖

    So poor.. I purchased 2 years but just use for half month and it doesn't work now.. In addition there is no response to me after I reported them!!!

  48. guest-avatar

  50. guest-avatar

    inconsistent connection...disconnects after a few minutes..old ver. is way better than this one

  51. guest-avatar

    Guys it's one of those temporary vpn that will stop working after a while, but I am not gonna tell you what vpn I am using because I don't want it to stop working (this only applies to folks in the uae 😔)

  52. guest-avatar

    It always pops up on my phone screen, even if I'm not using it, and it makes my phone extremely slugish. I'm uninstalling it.

  53. guest-avatar

    Easiest, fastest and most friendly user experience I have ever had using VPN.

    Shortly after I paid for the one year plan, it stopped working. At first, it seemed to work fine if I turned on the option "Block connections without VPN" on my phone. But after the latest update, this trick won't work. Got no response from the team, and I can't even get a refund. Poor service!!!

    That One Social Outcast


    So, my school has a bunch of blocked websites, like Reddit and most YouTube videos. I've tried plenty of VPNs from Turbo VPN to Betternet. However, none of them compare to Lantern. First of all, it was able to actually connect to blocked site. Second, it did it QUICK. Before, I used Turbo VPN, but sometimes it didn't work and it woukd disconnect. With Lantern, it is consistently fast. If you're looking for a VPN, then just try out Lantern. It sure didn't let me down.

  81. guest-avatar

    Sudeep reddy Malireddy


    Easy to connect

  87. guest-avatar

    This app is a huge disappointment. I paid 38 dollars for premium service but aftrr one month it no longer works and customer service sucks, no response, no help at all.

  88. guest-avatar

    Jan youtube channel


    Pubg game doesn't work on this vpn

  89. guest-avatar

    In China, the app works unstable. Almost half time you can't not connect to the internet. I use the pro version.

  90. guest-avatar

    Too slow and keeps disconnecting and changing VPN servers automatically. I don't recommend this VPN , especially if you need to stay connected to computing resources on the cloud. The customer service is very bad , they don't reply to you if you want to get your money back. Totally disappointed.

  91. guest-avatar

    I am using a pro version, it has not been working since two weeks ago in china and i sent two email to support team of lantern without any reply. they are not responsible for their problem. just got the money then finish every thing. i hate this kind of service. all other free vpn work as well.

  92. guest-avatar

    I am using a pro version, it has not been working from 1st of June. I have sent messages to their team but there is no response at all. An app without proper support is so disappointing. Do not pay for it, I have paid for 1 year and it stopped working after less than 3 months and no one is there to reply your emails and messages.

  93. guest-avatar

    This app is the best app android could have ever made. allows ur android to basically have the ability to discover its knowlage. The key.

  94. guest-avatar

    This app is not better than a VPN, as it does not grant you online anonymity. This lousy software is only an 'unblocker' and does not give you any online protection. Your government can still see what you are viewing online. If you would like a free, high speed 'unblocker' with no data cap check out Ultrasurf, otherwise buy yourself a subscription to a reputible VPN service or use TOR and stay anonymous online. This garbage can eat my ---

  95. guest-avatar

    This vpn sucks. It won't work 99% of the time

  96. guest-avatar

    Bought the package On the 14th may but only works for two weeks and unable to login to block sites in China after that. Tried contacting them by email to recify the problems almost every day but nothing seems to work. No reply from their Facebook messenger! Till date, their VPN is still unusable. No way to get back your money! Do not buy from them or you'll regret it!!

    Med Lamine Rabhi


    Very handy and usefull works always on browsers but not with apps.

  98. guest-avatar

    i have been using Lantern pro in mainland China for over one and half year and mostly it worked well forme but it does get unstable and unavailable when Chinese authorities crackdown against VPNs on certain occasions. Since around June 1, 2019 to till date it's inaccessible again for android but randomly working for desktop version.

  99. guest-avatar

    It shows connected but it,s not connect and I can't go to block website,it,s not useful,don,t try that

  100. guest-avatar

    This VPN is reliable in China
