    "A pain in the a_ _!, from day one!"

    February 2, 2013  |   By Rioismycat


    There are no pros. with this software!, to much advertising!, Security Kiss Tunnel is excellent!, 300 mbs. a day with more and better features and no advertising at all!


    Nothing but a pain in the a_ _ from day one, i don't know how they ever made it to number one!, Security Kiss Tunnel is far better than this advertising crap!


    Security Kiss Tunnel has better security features and does work, when i use it Google makes me verify who i am because there not sure it's me!, an outstanding software product for free!, should be the best at Cnet!, probably not to many people know about it, company is from Dublin, Ireland, checked it out with security, more than one, 100% safe to use!

    Updated on Feb 2, 2013

    Note- this software has two modes, the encrypted mode, and the elusive tunnel mode!, i think it works much better than Hotspot Shield!, and 100% ad free and free for lifetime!
