Free?.. or "Overloaded" greed? Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

Сперва донимал окном "Купите премиум-версию", но это еще пол-беды. Но спустя примерно месяц началось бесконечное "Sorry Anonymox is overloaded..." с тем же предложением купить премиум. Т.е. по факту повел себя не как free, а как shareware. Ведь полно действительно бесплатных вариантов "анонимизации" работы. Удалил, и не жалею.
At first I exasperated with the "Buy a Premium Version"-window, but it not a problem yet. But about a month later the infinite began: "Sorry Anonymox is overloaded...". I.e. upon it not free and as shareware. After all it is full of really free anonymizations options of work. I removed, and I am not sorry.

Will Steal Your Money Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

I had been an Anonymox user since 2013.
Just recently they decided to claim that I did not pay for my account. I went thru PayPal arbitration. They then re-instated my paid account status. A mere hours later they re-suspended my account saying that I had not paid. They are exploiting the paypal resolution center. As a service that they can cut off at any time, but you can only make a single claim against via paypal. I am currently in arbitration with these people to try to reclaim a portion of my paid monies. After which I will not seek service with them.
Buyer Beware.

Hello Nasum33,

I think this was a misunderstanding, we don't suspend accounts without good reason. Please contact us at support@anonymox.net so we can look into it.

"Sorry Anonymox is overloaded"....

Hello alanpar,

Due to the dramatically increasing amount of free users in the last few months, our network can not keep up anymore.
The anonymoX idea works only as long as there are enough users who participate in the server cost, that's why we had to limit the usage.

We're sorry for this and hope that the situation will improve soon.

Best Regards

Overloaded? Dropped out Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

"Sorry Anonymox is overloaded". Well mate, yous are not the only option. Sort that out if you want people to stay, in the meantime I'll use something else :) bye bye

Very annoying with stupid large pop-ups Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

It has become useless and extremely annoying. Every now and then ot soots this notive:

"Sorry! anonymoX is overloaded
As you may already know, we are providing an anonymization network. It consists of many computers we need to maintain to anonymize your internet traffic. Because of the many users, there are times when it gets overloaded.
While our network is under heavy load, only users of anonymoX Premium have guaranteed access."

This is very stupid I only seldom use it, and so it has always come up when I am NOT using it. What do I care whether it is overloaded or not? I will disable it for now, and will try to reenabled again in the future. If id goes on the same I will uninstall it immediately. Why should I want something that is constantly bothering me?

The replies given by the founders are not even believable. It is a lie for a trap.

No thanks.. Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

Reply to Nils/Company Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

There is no way to reply to a message unless one opens up a new review...My rating still stands at 1 star.

In my review, truth is an absolute defense.

The emails I received, and the statements in the reply from the company do not address the broad brush attitude of this company against anything that competes with it. Again, a customer is not given a number or better explanation of "repetitive requests, 'a lot' of requests in succession, multiple proxies, add-ons that deter their software..."

To state that other companies have no way to formulate their policies is just disengenuously passing the problem down the line without explanation. The company ought to have a history log of any and all culprits that interfere with their system.

In an email, the company informed me of their developers being unable to find any solution to this rather mysterious problem...since they didn't know the problem--and I certainly didn't-- therefore, it became in their eyes a violation of their terms. They subsequently refused a refund, which is contrary to the refund policy of "7 days" as stated in their answer to my rating (which, by the way, the '7 days' is also not mentioned in the terms, unless they changed it overnight since my prior rating). Per their terms, a refund is given within 14 days after discovering an issue with their program. No refund is given for the life of the contract for violations of their terms--which one discovers, is "mysterious." to their developers.

Finally, the reply provided by the company to my prior rating of 1 states that "...anonymoX is not designed to block Ads, cookies and LSO's." Yet, on their add-on description page, it also states, "...for AD-FREE and unrestricted usage of the anonymization network and the Add-On, you need anonymoX Premium." Anonymox does allow to delete cookies, but the corollary is also that they also don't prevent them either.

Even under my premium, ads still appeared, along with LSO's and cookies. Once these infiltrate one's system, it's too late.

Rating stands at 1.

AnonymoX clearly seeks to charge users. Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

It is impossible to use this addon since the beginning of the year.

AnonymoX clearly seeks to charge users.

I propose AnonymoX to save us time, announce that the product is paid and delete the free version that no longer works.

Misleading NAG Screens. Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

I really did like the rare use of this add-on in the past. It was a quick and efficient means of anonymizing your IP. Now imagine how supprised I am to see a "Pop Up" screen tell me that the "Server is Overloaded" due to too many free users when I am not even using it! Today a new "Pop Up" screen tells me that I have used over 500Meg of data (This Add-on itself mind you!) and because of that I am now being limited to 880Kb! While once again I am not even using it! It has been disabled for over a month and a half! So bad review and uninstall! By the way, there are free alternatives to this that do not limit you in anyway!

Hello Eric Schmitdz,

P.S. We know that the messages are popping up when you're not actively using it, but unfortunately that cannot be prevented easily due to the profile-based system (it is never really "off"). Also, the overusage messages can appear delayed, but they should be correct nonetheless (maybe background dowload).

anonymoX перестал работать Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

У кого перестал работать плагин, есть решение, перед запуском удалить папку:
c:\Users\%user%\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\%profile%\cache2
Минус в том, что делать это нужно ежедневно перед первым запуском браузера.
Если простое удаление не помогает, сделать бэкап и восстановление профиля.
Геморно, но это работает.

Apparently it's a paid add-on but then it should be stated on the main page

New nag screen pretends that service is unavailable to force users to pay. Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

This was one of the best. but the owners, who are increasingly frustrated that they cannot monetize this idea, are passing their frustrations onto users.
Now it being shut down is a regular occurrence, as a new nag tactic to try and force people to pay. They pretend that it is overloaded, but that would just mean a slowdown. The pop-up is clearly intended as a nag screen, not a legitimate error message.

The consequence, is that if you use two usernames to access a website, you will now be detected and can have your user accounts closed and be blocked. Some facebook accounts are also being deleted, even for users who had only one single username, because FB detects a change of country, and automatically assumes fraud/spam user.
So think twice before you use this solution.
Even if you become a paid user, ask yourself that these guys might do next, on a whim, if they are having a bad day.
Do yourself a favor, stay away. Because of the people behind it, it is risky.

Reviewing the reviews... Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

Specifically to Aga. This is not a free service. That is the entire point. There is no longer any free service, so why do they bother pretending there is. They should just pull the free option completely and just charge, or else get out of Mozilla add-ons community.

As for your review on other people's gripes about the not-free anonymox, well you know where you can shove that. Every complaint I have read is legitimate.

This now costs an ADDITIONAL $70 every year, on top of every other "must have" internet service. If you cannot see that there is not enough value in Anonymox to justify that, then more fool you. Since you pay $6 for a coffee, it's obvious that fools and their money are easily parted.

People, please stop Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

I don't understand why people have the cheek to complain about a FREE service. The premium account costs the same as a large latte in Starbucks. I bet you have a take out coffee every day. If you can afford that, you can afford buying the premium service.

I'm fine personally, because I only use it once a day to access blocked sites in the UK (like TPB) so free access is fine with me.

Overloaded Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

Used to like this, eventhough i rarely use it.
But now, it always "overloaded" whenever i open my FF.
Kind of annoying with the popup.
Please remove the popup & upgrade the server so it's not always "overloaded".

always asking for money Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

I installed this but I do not go on it very often, then it disables itself and asked me to pay for the premium, I reinstalled it and after a few weeks same thing happened, they want money. So I de-installed it and use Browsec instead.
