Blocks internet access for other apps

I did not experience the slowdown of browsing, widely reported by many other users. However, when connected to Nielsen, some connections simply don’t work at all. Most notably, Apple App Store, when it can’t search for apps and can’t update the apps. Another app is LG SmartSync - it can’t connect to their servers.
There is a remedy however. Your home router most like had not one but two connections, one for 5 GHz, another for 2. Configure Nielsen app for one of them; whenever Nielsen is blocking your connection, switch your phone to use another one. Don’t forget to switch back.
I tried to report this problem to Nielsen tech support, but did not receive any response at all. By all signs it’s outsourced, so not a big surprise. I also reported this to Apple.

Their VPN slows my phone down

Their VPN slows my phone down. It takes me several minutes to get online. Sometimes I have to switch my phone on & off from Airplane mode to wake it up.

Ensure in the address bar and click send.
This will provide us a technical report about the app on your device.
Once this is done your issue will be brought to the attention of our technical team, who will look into it right away.

Not bad but could use some updating

All in all the app really isn’t too bad and I don’t believe it slowed my iPhone8 any at all, atleast not noticeably. It just runs in the background and honestly I forget that it’s there 90% of the time.
It would be nice if the app would give you a reminder to login every day tho. I also wish there was more to do in the app to earn rewards points whether it be taking surveys, watching videos, or even playing little games. It just be nice to have something to do and it be more interactive.
I also think it needs an update to streamline the interface/dashboard. It can be kind of clunky and cumbersome to navigate at times. Some of the bigger prizes are kinda pricey points wise. Wish they would have an occasional sale on items.
For a background app tho it’s definitely one of the better ones!

easy to install and run
doesn’t slow down your phone
earn points for free stuff just for having on your devices

not much to do
outdated interface
big prizes are kind of pricey IMO
