  • Too slow

    By Jackk Huang
    It was working so I paid for the subscription. After that it started to slow down and disconnect. Please make it faster.
  • Disconnected...... sometimes

    Purchased disconnect premium, app function is less than stellar. VPN drops frequently on any given day and the worst part is you don't know until it's too late. VPN still shows active across the top of my screen, but all of a sudden I'm getting ads and pop ups and who knows what else?! Upset that I paid for something so unreliable, and will not be paying more in future unless these developers (nice though they may be) produce something that's actually safe and reliable.
  • Not as Advertised

    I purchased a Lifetime Premium License from Mashable for $49.99. When I try to apply the license to the iOS app, it won't take it saying I must purchase a recurring subscription through the iTunes store. There's no where in the app to apply my license purchased outside the app store. And using the activation URL is an invalid URL that no browser will open. (disconnectme://link?code=..... ) I bought the Premium because I could install on my desktop, iPad, and iPhone. However, it appears only the desktop can use the app while they want even more money for the iOS devices. Very unhappy customer.
  • So far so great

    With mild to moderate surfing the app has blocked 686 tracking attempts on a single iPad.
  • Superior support

    Been using their extension for years and now finally upgrading to their iOS app for better protection. Had an issue activating the app and emailed support. Received a response within the hour! Was able to quickly resolve it. Very impressed. If you care about your online privacy, do yourself a favor and subscribe to their premium service!
  • I really want to like Disconnect. But it doesn't work :(

    Disconnect is a fantastic idea and lead by really nice people. But, most unfortunately, the just don't deliver. Sure, *when* their products work, they're awesome. Over 1k trackers blocked, extra privacy, and of course, everyone needs a VPN on 100% of the time now. But...they rarely work. Their app and functionality is incredibly buggy and drops VPN connection (or simply fails to connect) CONSTANTLY. Their problem isn't device specific, or even OS specific: I have problems across all of my devices, as does my significant other and various friends that I recommended the service to. The bottom line is that all of their clients (or perhaps their service) is not reliable enough to recommend. I really, really hope they do a complete overhaul of whatever is causing the issue so that I can go back to recommending them, because theirs is the only service that stops trackers. Their support team is very helpful, but unfortunately has never been able to resolve any of the main issues (app instability and connection instability) on any environment/device. Until then, switch to ProtonVPN or IDVector.
  • Not free. Somewhat deceptive

    Great concept but Will ask you to pay right out the gate. You might as well consider the paid version. Just cost me some data to download then delete.
  • VPN fails regularly thru daily usage, absolutely don't install on home computer

    This service seems to work fine-ish on iOS. Except it will randomly disconnect the VPN service for no reason. But, boy howdy, you do NOT install on your laptop or desktop. Horrible. It gets nice and screwy with your IPv6 protocols by giving out multiples. Suddenly my browser could not see half the internet (on multiple machines, mind you). And the best they could try and do was have me launch their app from a terminal window, which seemed to make it all the worse. Even after I force quit the app, it would relaunch. I do not see myself continuing at all with these folks. Scrubbed it clean from both computers. (I also love the confusion of which service is which. In the end, I purchased one version for $40. And then realized I needed a renewing subscription for the service I thought I was buying. What a waste.)
  • So far, So good

    App seems pretty easy to use. Like ability to turn VPN on and off easily. Subscriptions are confusing. What's difference between Disconnect subscription and Premium? How do you buy a whole year within the App?
  • IP Leaks

    App constantly fails to connect on demand. Requires manual connect. IP activity leaks because it is not performing as it should. Servers and software unreliable.
