Editors' Review

by   / April 13, 2018

SuperVPN is one of the most popular VPNs in the Google Play Store, but we have concerns about its logging practices, approach to security, and permission requests.

Pros

Handful of free exit servers: With a free account, you can access a handful of servers in North America and Asia.

Cons

Suspect logging practices and potential malicious activities: Researchers and independent testing sites point to problems with SuperVPN's logging and security practices. For example, That One Privacy Site, an independent VPN testing site, has concerns about SuperVPN's logging practices and approach to privacy and security.

CSIRO (short for Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, an independent scientific research agency of the Australian Federal Government) detected unusually high potential malware activity in SuperVPN's app. CSIRO's report noted that "the high presence of malware activity in VPN apps that our analysis has revealed is worrisome, given the ability that these apps already have to inspect and analyze all user's traffic with the VPN permission." Note that running a VPN doesn't necessarily guarantee your Internet activities will be private and secure. Shady VPN providers overpromise and underprotect. Choose a trustworthy VPN to guard your networking communications.

Overreaching permission requests: The app requests access to your browsing history, bookmarks, installed apps, photos, media, other files, and contacts, which is much more than we'd expect or be willing to grant permission to.

A second app required to subscribe: Unlike any other app we've ever used, you need to install a second app (called VPN Payment Tool) to subscribe to the service. Users on the app's page on the Google Play Store report the app loses payments or doesn't correct credit accounts.

Odd free policy: When you sign up, you get 20 days to use the app for free. At the end of the trial period, the app disconnects you every hour if you don't subscribe.

Bottom Line

Sometimes, you want to dip your phone in bleach after uninstalling an app. If you are looking for a trusted way to stay secure and private on the Internet, you may want to look elsewhere for a reputable VPN.

How can you tell if an Android app is safe?
