- by Firefox user 15493962, a year agoRated 3 out of 5I can't subscribe because the extension isn't stable. When loading a browser, the proxy (not the plugin) is disabled. Sometimes the proxy turns itself off.
- by HonestReviews, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5update: 3-27-21: Better last couple months but still problem with random disconnects which probably reveal your home ip, defeating the entire reason for using a proxy. Rest of the interface is pretty good and servers are pretty fast. be careful with webrtc revealing your IP, doesn't always work. Be sure to check webrtc b4 assuming ur ip is not visible. This is WITH there webrtc extesion and others. FFox not as bad as chrome but firefox does not always render the webpage correctly. If HOXX could fix the randome disconnects it would be the best free VPN out there but I guess they cannot.
update: 12-17-20: Still too many random disconnects. I am guessing this vpn is rather useless for protecting your home IP since it does not say it has a feature to stop that from being transmitted when one of their servers decides to crap out on you. Still probably the best "free" vpn out there thou. But if a vpn cannot protect your home ip what good is it really?
update 12-2-20: had to switch to competitor vpn as hoxx proxies too unstable and often cannot connect. still no addition to hide your home ip if their servers disconnect. Not sure vpn does any good if you start your browser , your home ip is revealed and then u go to hoxx server-they still have ur home ip, so what good is the vpn then?
Also note will stop making ffox reviews-toohard to sign on. constant unexpected errors means we at firefox don't know what the hell we are doing.
critical update 11-18-20 addendum. Appears my wifi connection was hacked probably for that crap wifi Globe.com (worst isp filled iwth hackers) VPN providers need to do more to secure their connections against hackers.
Update critical 11-8-20. As far as I know hoxx does not have a kill switch such that when it is disconnected even briefly your home Ip is likely to be sent. This makes a vpn worthless, same as no vpn.
Update: 11-5-20 This would be a VERY good VPN IF they do the following:
Install a kill switch that would block you home ip from leaking if you are disconnected from the vpn. Too many disconnects and if your Home Ip is leaked that defeats the whole purpose of the vpn.
Their servers are quick and fast, no problem connecting-the problem is with disconnects not initiated by the user. Also get some Philppine servers-very hard to find in free vpn. If Hoxx had residential proxies unidentifiable as proxies, it would be the ONLY free proxy to have this. Proxies are worthless for sites that want to block you if they can determine you are using a proxy, easy to deny you access. All in all a good proxy except for it's saying it will report you to authorities and will watch you for illegal behavior-that's not the purpose of a proxy, they are not the police.
Update 10-23-20: Connection holding ability has improved since my last update of about a month ago. Their servers are quite fast at connecting and data transfer is quite fast especially for free service. Hoxx is incompatible with Mozilla One Tab Extension. Every time one tab loads the hoxx vpn server connection is broken. Good selection of servers for many countries, including USA.
I still object to their lax privacy policies. I doubt it will effect me since I am not doing anything illegal.
Their connection has improved and faster. But they still have problems with disconnects and conflicts with other addons. For example when one tab opens it's page Hoxx d/c the vpn connection. Other things cause it to disconnect which can result in outing your IP.
They have a webrtc blocker which I installed but I don't know if it's working or not. Have to test that.
They are very good at not making jump through a bunch of hoops to use the vpn. But their reminders to get a paid account are a little annoying.
Hoxx vpn keeps asking me to review it, so here goes. PITA to signup to FF reviews almost quit. It's a lame VPN. Why? Their TOS says they can log you and violate ur privacy by reporting u for any illegalities, which, of course, they decide what is illegal. VPN d/c without warning leaving your IP exposed. Hard to connect you need a flawless fast internet connection to connect. Another lame "free" VPN-they make their money by mining your data and violating your privacy.

consider a commercials option with/instead of charging users.
