- Rated 2 out of 5by HonestReviews, 7 months ago11-25-22: i had high hopes for this addon because it worked well the first 2 months, then it suddenly went to hell. I'm guessing they got a lot more users based on the good review as it was largely unknown. Either that or they don't like I haven't paid them anything. And I never will because their addon sucks now.
acts like it's being hacked-directs to pages you never clicked on.
very slow to get any server response when connecting. drops connections or proxy cannot do dns lookups. Often servers unavailable and listed as "offline". Started out good and gradually got worse and worse. Now using browsec often which is much quicker to connect and much more stable, but with fewer ips. I have not found a really good "free" proxy yet. They all pretty much suck. So far browsec is the best.
10-2-22-slight improvement but still sucky. Can't connect to IPs, half of the time. Gives message offline for all except maybe one or two ips. Had to go to browsec vpn much more reliable and not a PITA to connect. Little faster on the error messages, but still a PITA to use it. Try browsec, or setup vpn. 90% of the so called free vpns are either not free or crap. Not worth your time.
9-2-22: This started off as the best free vpn available. Now at about 4 months out it has gone to hell and is crappy as all the other "free" VPNS.
I went to the trouble to post this review because it is so bad now. SLOWWWW to load. SLOOOWWW to give error messages due to other reasons. Just damn slow you grow old waiting for a response for their servers. Half the time the dummies running this cannot tell if you have an account or not and offer up a new account window that then disappears if you reload the browser. Gone to hell same as all the other lame "free" vpns out there. It's not FREE if we have to waste our time getting the pos to work! The guys running this are smart. But not smart enough to deal with their new user load. Also it does not prevent DNS leads from browserleaks.org and shows the home DNS server whichi is a dead giveaway of your home IP. This is WITH their so called adguard adblock enabled which is supposed to use THEIR DNS. Guess what that shows but SO does your HOME DNS, VOILA, we now know where you are and probably WHO you are. Still lacking: a free vpm that is ANY GOOD with residential IPs that does not leak DNS info. I should say this is for chrome, but I am sure the same is true for FFOX.
- Rated 2 out of 5by USER-EXPERIENCEONLY, 10 months agosept 2022: Really sad to see what was once a fast and good vpn not deteriorated to almost unusable, slow to connect, choice of 1-2 vpns that are not yet "offline". flaky gui slow to respond. Did they fire the initial staff and replace it with homeless shelter recruits? How can a vpn like like 40 ips and like 10 free ips and all of them are "offline". Went back to browsec, simpler fast connects and works.
update: Now a good vpn when you need to take a coffee break because it almost takes that long to login to an IP, IF you can, IF they are not all listed as "OFFLINE" What a joke.
best free vpn available. But kind of stingy in the number of free ips it offers. connects you before you even ask when opening browser, prefer to be able to connect myself. Still it's the best one out there. But I wonder how much they protect your privacy, since you're getting it for free. almost forgot, u cannot use ublock origin with this, it has it's own ad blocker separate addon, but I worry about privacy with this vpn. also you must disable epic vpn when using epic browser or this vpn wont load.
