Ratings and Reviews
The connectivity of this service is wishy washy to say the least. The vpn seems to turn itself off every so often when I lock and then unlock my phone. Leading me to try a host of solutions from deleting and reinstalling the app, to selecting “Los Angeles” as the server location (as directed by a support specialist). These fixes sometimes work and in many cases such as today’s, they fail to. Leaving me to be unprotected until the service decides to function properly. It’s painful to know that I paid a decent penny to remain protected but I have this issue on a daily basis and it’s frankly becoming a bothersome and frustrating experience.
Do not waste your money on this horrible attempt at a VPN. I made the mistake of purchasing a two year plan a while ago…so I’ve had experience with this VPN…and none of my experiences have been good. It does NOT stay connected…you will constantly be opening the app and switching locations just hoping that you find a server that works…”just use automatic!”…NOPE! Automatic won’t work either. Your speed is slowed down over 50% when it is “on”…but this VPN offers zero consistent protection. Customer service is laughable. I’ve contacted them at least 10 times and have only once received a response…and that response had no answer/solution in it. This company is nothing but snake oil salesmen selling you the illusion of privacy. Choose ANY OTHER VPN…even if the one you choose is crap…it’ll be better than virtual shield.
Not for most people.
It works well as a vpn to get past isp and your local network blocking sites. However, I would not recommend if you plan to have it on at all times, as your internet speed will suffer greatly. Normally my WiFi is 60mb/s, however, this vpn slows it to a god awful 4mb/s! It's fine if you just want to unblock one site once in a while for a minute, but it's unusable for browsing the internet, watching videos, and sending messages through Discord or other apps. Furthermore, this app has not been updated on the store for 2+ years now, so that's potentially why it's so slow. I'd chose a different service if I could get my money back.
