"So far, so good!"

November 30, 2013  |  By JazzMasta

 |  Version: Wifi Protector 3.0.14

Pros

Seems to work as advertized, allowing access to filter-blocked sites like YouTube at work (did I just say that?). Unobtrusive, doesn't appreciably slow web traffic.

Cons

Doesn't want to stay off when turned off (not a big deal, though).

Summary

I haven't been using Wifi Protector on my Windows 7 laptop for very long, but so far I'm very happy with it. I was using Hotspot Shield before, but the web filters at work are even blocking that now; not so with Wifi Protector, which seems to work just as well, and for FREE.

"Constantly cutting off and opening new tabs Grrrr"

May 19, 2013  |  By BimboJim

 |  Version: Wifi Protector 3.0.14

Pros

Hides IP
Doesn't slow internet

Cons

CONSTANTLY OPENING UP NEW TABS!!!!

Every time it loses connection it opens up a new tab which is bloody distracting and annoying because IT IS ALWAYS AND FOREVER AND CONSTANTLY DROPPING THE CONNECTION!!! So tabs are forever opening telling you that the damn connection is lost and your not protected .. *********!!

My internet connection is excellent. It is this so called Wifi protector that is at fault.

Summary

Why the hell does it constantly bombard one with new tabs??

A little notification would do! It's trying to blow it's own trumpet but the trumpet has got a potato stuck in it!

Bloody annoying. uninstalled the PESKY THING

"Similar to Hotspot Shield"

May 18, 2013  |  By skajdlive

 |  Version: Wifi Protector 3.0.14

Pros

Does the job BUT ...

Cons

Free version has only one Japanese IP

It appears that the paid version has only 3 IPs Japan, USA, UK

So that makes it ridiculously expensive

Summary

Similar to Hotspot Shield style and feel EXCEPT that with Hotspot Shield, if you pause protection then restart, you will get a different IP address. Same country but different IP every time you stop start.

If you pause protection then restart Wifi Protector, it will give you only the same IP every time.

Presuming that this is the same with the other mere 2 locations the paid version gives, then for me I will stick with Hotspot Shield. Much cheaper and many many many more different IP addresses.
