  • UPDATED 5/16/18: Nusance Review Prompts; expensive

    By Comment est-ce que on dit non.
    UPDATED REVIEW 5/16/2018: Previous rogue data dump eating up my cellular data allowance may have been due to OS reporting of statistics, and sharing of ‘crash’ data with app providers. I just disabled these in my ‘System Preferences’ -> ‘Security & Privacy’ -> ‘Privacy’. They were enabled during the recent OS update. The high data stream (in less than a minute: >200MB received, >100MB sent) stopped immediately. Hotspot Shield appears now, so far at least, not to have been the cause so I am restoring my rating back to 4 stars. Still keeping a vigilant eye on data transfers. UPDATED REVIEW 5/11/2018: Just now wtinessed a turn for the worse with return to an old pattern I had previously seen go away. Tracked down a mysterious data transfer exceeding 100MB in only a few minutes. I kept shutting down potential culprit apps until it became clear the problem was due to my use of a US Server through my HotSpot VPN profile. Switching to a different country server caused the problem to stop. Is this malevolent activity? It certainly seems so. Too bad I had to burn 100MB of my cellular data allowance to figure out how to stop it. Anchor Free, please fix this. Maybe your US Server is the culprit, and not you? Please figure it out. Knocking down my rating from 4 to 2 stars. OLD REVIEW:This review ignores some prior trials and tribulations I’ve with the app over several years now as it is very much improved beginning around March 2018. Only two complaints need to be addressed and I will raise my rating from four to five stars: stop asking multiple times for reviews, even though the frequency of these requests is greatly reduced now; address an issue with my iPhone version of the app when it is in enabled-mode and tries unsuccessfully and unrelentingly to connect to a publically available subscription WiFi service that I use, preventing me from using my phone/map apps linkage to find route directions. I have to fiddle with the iPhone, eventually shutting off WiFi in order to get this app to cease and desist. The fiddling takes a frustrating 60 seconds or so. With a consistently strong WiFi signal with or without the app enabled, or with the weaker subject subscription WiFi and the app disabled (defaults to Cellular Data), this issue does not happen.

    Copied from another user. My thoughts exactly: Yeah, the VPN work fine and I like it. What I am absolutely sick of is the persistent, annoying, irritating, demanding popup that happens anytime you interact with the program. Look at some other reviews. Other people feel the same way. I don’t do reviews and ratings but I actually gave it a 1 star rating previously just to put an end to the annoying popup. It worked for a while but when the next upgrade happened, it’s back to the nagging and begging. It’s an extra click and an extra 2 seconds every time I use it. I hate this aspect of HotSpot Shield. I have more and better things to do than to than have an application continually push me to give a rating - especially when I have already done so. HotSpot Shield management and developers: you are alienating your customers. Your software is suppsed to serve your customers. We are not here to serve you in your desire for ratings. Your attempts at social engineering of your customer’s behavior demonstrates a profound lack of respect for the people who pay you and who you are supposed to serve. HOTSPOT SHIELD CUSTOMERS - please give HotSpot Shield a 1 star rating until they fix this issue and start displaying a more respectful way of requesting a rating or review.
  • Deceptive Misleading Unauthroized Subscription

    By James Young C. Kim
    Hotspot VPN on the iTunes App Store engages in misleading and deceptive practices that ultimately lead to monthly charges without authorization. The initial install of the app suggests you get a free trial period but then the prompts mislead you into a monthly subscription while making you believe it is a free trial. Before you know it you are being charged a monthly fee.

    By Tomyatlantis
    I am seeing all bad reviews about them forcing you to review them. I have been using the old version, with old plans. Not as expensive as the new plans. I am being forced to upgrade now, but I cannot enter my own account to cancel my subscribtion that was recently renewed. This means, they want to charge twice now. I am deleting the whole app from my computer and will install something less intrusive than these guys desperate to get customers in a pushy way.
  • It just works

    By 11 Bravo
    Works well from various countries - upgrades over the past year are effective.
  • Functionality GONE

    By golf hu$tler
    The previous app worked fine (and just auto-renewed itself for another year) but now after updating April 27, 2018, pages do not load and app is now utterly useless. Time to find another VPN and no way to get my money back. What a horrific way to end a paying customer’s business and ruin the app. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!

  • Review hungry!!!

    By FireDemond
    This app is not cheap. So after paying the premium price on it you would expect no pop ups right? WRONG! nearly EVERYTIME u want to interact with the app you get a pop up asking you to review the app on the app and in the itunes store if you guys keep nagging me for a review in this way i’ll keep giving you horrible reviews. I paid for the app. THATS IT! show some class and dont obstruct me from using the app unless i review, thats ridiclous and I’m not gonna ignore them, i will give you the worst rating possible until you stop this ridiculousness.
