    "Spotflux isn't that good."

    August 26, 2013  |   By shipo007

    Version: Spotflux 2.9.10

    Pros

    gonna jump down straight to the conclusion.

    Cons

    like i said the conclusion.

    Summary

    look people here being all like its free this and that. Well than lets see here i live in a really crappy country and my internet speed is 2mb. I tested my internet speed and the ping was at 50, the Down Speed was 1.71mbps and the up speed is 0.40mbps. With spotflux i started facing allot of video quality drops and slow browsing so i tested the speed again with Spotflux enabled and the result was. 1135 ping, 0.90mbps down speed and 0.10mbps up speed which means it does slow the internet to half of what your actually speed is. Now i also have hotspot and have been using it before spotflux and i just downloaded spotflux today. So i tested the speed with hotspot shield and this is what it calculated: 550 ping, 1.64 mbps downspeed and 0.36 up speed which is clear that hotspot works far better than spotflux...i know the ads on hotspot are annoying but their is a simple solution for getting rid of them. Just add this addon or extension whatever you wanna call it to your chrome or firefox browser. Its called Adblock..you add this to your browser and say bye bye to those annoying pop ups and ads.

    "Works Well And Easy To Use"

    August 25, 2013  |   By tonester59

    Version: Spotflux 2.9.10

    Pros

    Installed with only 1 window offering crapware, which I declined, overwise a very smooth install. This is, without a doubt, the easiest to use VPN client I've ever tried.

    Cons

    Well, it's a VPN and they all will cause some lag although this one's not too bad.(I tried Hotspot Shield once and hated it.) Also, the folks at Google are very clever and have been hip to VPNs for a long time now - they're not about to let you use a VPN on one of their premiere sites and biggest money-makers, namely YouTube, so you may as well turn it off before going there. There may be other types of programs that will allow you to use it anonymously, but I haven't had time to research them.

    Summary

    I should note that I am using Spotflux on home-based, ethernet connected computers for only certain situations. Most of the time I use the excellent OpenDNS filter which helps block malware, risky sites, etc,. but does not conceal my IP Address, and cannot be used in concert with a VPN. The tradeoff between safety and privacy (and I do use other privacy tools) is one I'm willing to make, but I wouldn't dream of using public Wi-Fi without a good VPN. If you use public WiFi or, like me, find that there are times when you want to conceal your IP Address, you definitely should give Spotflux a try.

    "Works Great BUT..."

    August 18, 2013  |   By frliss

    Version: Spotflux 2.9.10

    Pros

    Works great with Chrome browser. Does just what the publisher says it will do. It hides your IP.

    Cons

    Even when I am using Spotflux the following website can find my location right down to my house. ctrlq.org/maps/where/

    Summary

    I hope this issue will be solved in the final pay version.
