- Rated 3 out of 5It surprisingly asks for money after several usings. But I didn't see any mention about it before installation. Just wasted my time and deleted it, replacing to another vpn add-on.
"No registration or credit card is required to use it."
It's a lie. It stops and switchs on a timer for every using if you don't buy it.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoHello,
When you use KProxy extension for 3 hours or you download more than 300MB (we are improving this) in those 3 hours it stops working for 30 minutes. Then you have another window of 3 hours or 300MB and the cycle never ends. You have not to register and don't need a credit card at any time to use it, forever. You just have to wait 30 minutes.
KProxy extension is designed for surfing, if you only surf, it acutally never stops. If you see videos or download stuff you will reach the limit. We know that there is people that can't pay or don't want to pay, but we still want to offer a reliable service for everyone. It could be annoying, but we want to maintain a fast and free for surfing service and give freedom to everyone. If we don't stop downloads, then this is not possible.
KProxy doesn't have ads, doesn't sell your data, doesn't sell your bandwidth like other VPN's do. KProxy is only possible because of awesome people that thinks that pay for the PRO service is worth of it.
Other VPN's works great at first, then eventually they become slow and not usable. Other are bubbles that get more and more users expecting to sell the company to a big fish or eventually close because the project is not financially reliable.
Well, we will never be rich, but we are here for years (since 2005) and we don't expect to close this service in the near future. We want to offer our service for free to everyone that can wait 30 minutes.

I mean the following (may be I did anything wrong):
I periodically use your service to get access to sites that blocked by my ISP. Usually I use web-interface, and everything is OK. Today I tried to use the extension, and after opening any pages I got an annoying active tab with message, like "you limit of free using of Kproxy is reached". When I close this tab, it opens again and again, until I remove the extension.
In the future, I going to use only web-interface.
PS^ In any case, I want to say "thank you" for your service.

Now I understand, thank you.
May be I opened one-two pages and be away for a more then hour.
It is OK. But that tab, I could not close, made me angry. 8)
Developer responseposted 4 years agoWhat do you mean? When you start the extension, your browser is connecting to proxy servers for surfing, so it will slow your speed because traffic is going through our servers. Also, depending on your geolocation, the geolocation of the server, and the geolocation of the site browsed it could be slow, in example if you are in Europe, use an USA server connecting to an European site, the data have to travel a lot. Also, the extension is totally transparent and it can be stopped at any time when you don't need the proxy service anymore. I'm not sure what is your complaint about, please, give us more info to try to improve the user experience.

Ok, now everything is clear. You can use KProxy extension for free during one hour, then you have to wait 30 minutes and you will be able to use another hour. During those 30 minutes, if you try to use KProxy you will get that message. Just stop KProxy Extension clicking on the hat icon and then on the "Stop KProxy" that is on the top left corner.
So, can you surf with KProxy for free? Absolutely.
Why you have to wait 30 minutes? Lots of people use everyday KProxy, the 30 minutes wait prevents overloading of servers and allows everybody to use our service for free. With no waits, the free version will not be reliable. Our mission is give a good service for surfing for everyone with no ads.
