This is a great app it works amazing and it is very easy to use i highly recommend it. I think one of the best parts is is that it’s free.
Of all the VPNs that I've used, Star VPN is the best one for its money. It's virtually unbeatable at the rate of $26 per year, and although it sometimes won't connect to certain places (I have a hard time connecting to Netherlands and Switzerland), for the most part this is about 90% effective. I would highly recommend this software/app for anyone looking for a great VPN on a tight budget.
I used it for just the free trial because I just needed for a few days. If a needed a paid VPN service I would use this one, for sure. It wasnt easy to cancel the free subscription, you have to do it through your Apple account and at least a day before it ends. Support center from the app helped me.
Steady service, somethings doesn’t work and need to try different locations. But good enough for me. I wrote this review doesn’t because I wanted to but the app keeps asking me to have a review everytime I got connected. So annoying ...
My app tends to disconnect on my MAC often in Saudi Arabia. Also, the latest version disconnects on iPhone and Tablets…whereas the earlier version did not.
Tried to cancel trial subscription because this does not work in China. No where can I find to cancel subscription.
BEST VPN for Mac
I use this on both my mac and my iphone and it works great. I bought the paid version and it was completely worth the money
I’ve used this app for about a year now, and it has been working better for me than any other free VPN apps. You'll usually only need one try to get onto the VPN and will not recommend you any ads. It also appears on the bar above your screen, which makes it easy to use. In general, this is a great app, and I would recommend it to anyone to use. Though please take note that I have been using the subscription, and it might have been the same experience for the free version.
cannot get in as the application says “ no internet connection”, but certainly there is network connection, and I can use other vpn apps too Do not know why, plz help us find out the problem, thanks!
Why there’re alot of server in ios. but in mac and android is no update.
Does exactly what I purchased it for 100% of the time. Highly recommend this app.
It’s not at all a bad app.
I’ve used other VPN’s that eventually fail to cover you. Star VPN has worked perfectly until now. Buggy lately. Please ad Netflix to IOS version.
It works, it works well. I’m using the free version, don’t mind the infrequent popup when you start it up. If I used it more I’d pay for it, it’s worth it.
It’s a good product and works well. I haven’t used other VPNs so I really don’t have anything to compare it with.
I downloaded 10 VPN apps from app store, after trying each one, I subscribed Star VPN. Pros: Services covered many countries, bandwidth and latency is good, connections are stable; support iOS without extra charge; Interface is friendly. Cons: Keeps popping up VPN connection dialog with User name filled and asks for password?? ( macOS 10.13.3, rMBP 2016 ) I had to reinstall the app to solve this problem every 2 days. Please fix this!
Suddenly the app stopped working on my Mac. Wrote two emails to support and got no help. I am sorry I have to write this negative review. Maybe I will get their attention.
This VPN has worked very well for me, it’s very relaible. I recommend it for anyone who is looking for a fast stable VPN.
This is really helpful and I use this all the time. I recommend it.
It is a good app overall, but the stability is a huge problem. The speed of this VPN is fairly ok when you connect to US, Japan, and some other countries, but not all of them work well. Sometimes I want my money back when it either cannot be connected or just simply crashes.
I use Star VPN on my iOS and MacOS devices (iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro, iMac) . It seems that I am often connecting my iPhone or MacBook Pro to a public Wi-Fi network. A virtual private network is a must for using unsecured public Wi-Fi - in airports, coffee shops, any public place. I also use it all the time while at home, not because I’m doing anything improper, but just because I don’t like current rules that allow my ISP to track my activities. I tried Star VPN because it was free, and because the description claims not to do any tracking or keep any records of my internet traffic. I didn’t notice a significant slowdown on the free service, but I did upgrade to Premium. No complaints at all. Version 2.0 fixes an annoying problem where Star VPN did not start up automatically when logging in to the computer. I would often forget to turn it on manually. That is fixed with version 2.0 and MacOS 10.13.2 (High Sierra). Occasionally, I see a glitch where Star VPN does not start automatically when I do not log out, but the computer goes to sleep and re-awakens. Some sites I use for movie streaming (e.g., Netflix, Amazon Prime) will not permit movie downloads “via a proxy server”. I have to turn off Star VPN to download a movie while in a hotel. I don’t like it, but I blame the streaming company, rather than Star VPN.
There may be no free lunch, but Star VPN has been free for over a year for me and worth the price of their Premium. I used a couple different VPNs before using Star VPN and I had some trouble with them. If Star ever takes away their free version, I will likely purchase their Premium. I want to thank those people (whoever you are) behind Star VPN because being overseas in a country that has a poor history with internet corruption, they have provided me safe and fast service for over a year. Thank you so much!!! I owe you! JPAS-DP
I had no porblem with my VPN before the update. If it aint broke dont fix it. But, then my computer need to fix some Intel bug so I updated and now my VPN is worse than ever. It keeps asking me for the password. My account is good until March 2018. Can you please fix ? Ok, since I wrote my previous review, I tried to uninstall to fix the issue, now I can’t restore my purchase. I just get the “restoring” loop for hours.
It works fine but I bought a one year subscrition and couldn’t connect to the Premium locations. please help solve the problem!
The app is okay for a free VPN. The last update was supposed to improve stability. Like hell it did. It kept crashing every minute-literally. Don’t buy this app, you’ll waste your money. Do yourself a favor and keep it free.
It works perfectly ! Thank you.
I used the app from Oct, I just want to say it’s a high speed app for me .It’s very valuable for the price.
I have tried few VPN softwares and this app seems working properly, Thanks!!!
**Updated**. Now, it doesn’t work AT ALL. Save your money, buy something else. **Updated 2018 Jan** Still have this crappy VPN on several machines and now it wants to force me to RE-PAY for it. NO not even a few months have gone by when I paid for an entire year. Loser thiefs on top of a crappy app** Does not auto-start even when you tell it to in settings. Pretty infuriating to have to initiate this every.single.time. I open the lid. Also, the Netherlands server disappeared a few weeks ago and apparently is never coming back. Your true p2p list of servers is now down to two. Will be purchasing other VPN.
I am still in the trial-period, but, from what I see, I like the application. I am thinking of subscribing, but it is necessary to further explore the application. It is quite slow at times. I use the Japanese VPN because I have much business to conduct in that region, and it is better to see information pertinent to that region. As the title suggests, the app is a bit pricey, which disinclines me to purchase. However, if there were a life-time subscription available (a one-time payment), then I would be greatly incentivised to purchase the application. Please consider making a life-time subscription available, and you will most assuredly have my business. ———————————————————————————— UPDATE: I am longer able to connect to the Japanese VPN. As it was the only reason for using the application, I am now cancelling the trial-period. I would like to thank the developers for giving a trial-period. It was generous of them to do. If/When they fix this issue, I will consider re-trying or purchasing the application again.
iTS so Cool 😍😍😍😍😍😍☺️💕🐣
Please note - I have not purchased any premium subscription. This VPN is completely free with the US server, and it works in many countries (including ones that have censorship!). it is pretty darn reliable as well, with a simple design.
It’s a must have. really fast connection and boom!!
Bought the full prices version as I live in China. Total garbage . Never connects.
I have been using this app for about 6 months and I have no complaints. The only problem that I have had is when I try to connect a WiFi that I occasionally use it won’t connect. Other than that it works great.
Its really helpful after using this apps thanks for making this apps.
I downloaded free versions of 2 other Apps and snoozed through the cancellation of both. Both had connectivity issues and requred constant maintenence. Both had identical speeds which were slow, but I had come to believe/expect this as the norm when using any VPN. This all had me go in search of an alternative. This time, starting with the iPhone App first. I was surprised by the speeds I was getting even with the free version and It was only then that I realized I could use it for both phone & computer. After installing on computer, I immediately cancelled and uninstalled the other useless VPN’s. Not only does this App require ZERO maintenence, but it’s amazingly fast. Speed tests of the other apps I tried don’t come even remotely close to this one. Using the SPEEDTEST App by Ookla, I conducted 10 separate tests and clocked the following results while writing this review. My location: Los Angeles VPN connection: Dallas AVG Download Speed with VPN on: 50.3Mbps AVG Download Speed with VPN off: 67.18Mbps On average, Star VPN was more than 2x faster than anything I’ve used. Trick I found was to test all 3 State options ( San Francisco, Dallas, & New York ).Surprisingly, Dallas was optimal even know SF is closer. Conclusion: Using any VPN will slow down your connection. It’s only a question of how much it will slow it down and which VPN will slow it down the least. This App requires very little to no maintenence, and it's not only cheaper than the others I’ve tried, but dramatically faster as well. The mobile App is every bit as good and is included with subscription. HIGHLY recommend!
I use this VPN everyday and can download torrents as well. You honestly need to understand VPNs and realize how to do things on the internet when using a VPN as I have no trouble whatsoever. Works as advertised and among many devices on 1 account. Thanks guys for producing a quality product.
Try couple of VPNs already, this is a much stable one ever use. Keep it up!
The app is pretty useful.
Since the latest Apple Mackbook upgrade yesterday (10.12.6 (16G1036)), this app no longer works. It opens but will not turn on. This is unfortunate as it was working great before and I was thinking about upgrading to the pro version.
It is fast, but sometimes, it is not stable
Good macOS integration. I had little to no problems with my usage.
easy to set vpn. in China also can use . but, sometimes little bit hard to connect . most of time very easy to connect. speed also good.
