Disconnect Premium Privacy and Performance Reviews

  • VPN fails regularly thru daily usage, absolutely don't install on home computer

    By 3D guy
    This service seems to work fine-ish on iOS. Except it will randomly disconnect the VPN service for no reason. But, boy howdy, you do NOT install on your laptop or desktop. Horrible. It gets nice and screwy with your IPv6 protocols by giving out multiples. Suddenly my browser could not see half the internet (on multiple machines, mind you). And the best they could try and do was have me launch their app from a terminal window, which seemed to make it all the worse. Even after I force quit the app, it would relaunch. I do not see myself continuing at all with these folks. Scrubbed it clean from both computers. (I also love the confusion of which service is which. In the end, I purchased one version for $40. And then realized I needed a renewing subscription for the service I thought I was buying. What a waste.)
  • So far, So good

    By drrjv
    App seems pretty easy to use. Like ability to turn VPN on and off easily. Subscriptions are confusing. What's difference between Disconnect subscription and Premium? How do you buy a whole year within the App?
  • IP Leaks

    By asi65
    App constantly fails to connect on demand. Requires manual connect. IP activity leaks because it is not performing as it should. Servers and software unreliable.
  • Great

    By Issac4334
    Installed this and haven't turned off. Experience so much better with this app. Highly recommend.
  • Excellent privacy software

    By reed2102
    I've been a Disconnect Premium subscriber for about 2 years now and I think the product is finally starting to hit its stride. It does not work flawlessly (occasionally disconnects/reconnects), but 2 other mainstream VPNs I've tried were much worse. Most importantly, Disconnect's privacy policy is very strict - they don't log IPs, DNS hookups, sites accessed, anything. Customer support has been extremely fast & helpful when I've needed it. I highly recommend Disconnect to anyone who cares about their online privacy. The internet is a scary place.
  • A+ for providing mobile privacy

    By Dr_Ortho_O
    App works across all connections, protocols, and apps to filter out trackers. You can see a real-time feed of trackers blocked too. Awesome.
  • A Disconnect from Reality

    By MacDelta
    Feature review: Ad and Tracker blocker: more like a partial blocker. Disconnect allows many ad-servers and tracking scripts that "behave," to keep on spitting out ads and tracking your online activity. This is not user configurable. I tested several web pages. All ads present and accounted for! Ad/Tracker Blocking: One Star VPN: for $4.99/mo., there are far better options. Again, not user configurable, and you are stuck with AdBlock to protect you from ads. Site builders frequently cut-and-paste one of the dozens of anti-AdBlock scripts, which neutralizes AdBlock. VPN: One Star Full System Protection: in 2015, Disconnect was lauded for its system protection capabilities. During 2016 and 2017, iOS upgrades through 10.2.1 have been doing a much better job, at no cost! System Protection: One Star Free Week Trial/"No-Questions-Asked" refund policy: within seconds of activating my Free Week Trial, my bank account was charged $4.99. When I emailed Disconnect's support and asked for a refund, they couldn't help. I was given outdated directions to remove the software's auto-monthly charging tendrils. I had already trashed the app, an hour after trying to figure out what it did. as it "broke" my highly configurable ad/tracker/sneaky script blocker with a custom URL blocker to prevent garbage sites from loading. Free Week/Support: One Star Bottom line: If Disconnect Premium worked, it would have blocked itself as suspected malware. There are too many quality, full featured, user configurable VPN and ad/tracker apps written for iOS. This is not one of those.
  • Malware-avoid

    By Esid197
    Doesn't work. Doesn't change your ip if you're on wifi. Doesn't add protection. Automatically adds subscription to your iTunes and will bill you every month. This isn't a valid vpn. Google iOS vpn to get lust of good ones. This is just malware.
  • Worth the Money

    By GLBorchert
    I'm impressed. I've got it installed on my phone, my wife's phone and my office PC. It's fast and secure. Hundreds of apps blocked daily. Secure web searches.
  • Thank you for the T-Mobile Fix

    By Nick Sweetman
    Many thanks! Great app.
  • VPN not working

    By He's shah
    I figured I'd see how there VPN service works. But apparently it's not working so good. I prefer my other service I've been using for about a year now. Private Internet Access. They have been an outstanding VPN service for me.
  • Battery Drain

    By Evanadg
    Shortly after installing this app and setting up the VPN, I noticed my battery life tanking. It burned through my battery case and iPhone battery in a matter of hours. Yes, it blocked nearly 800 connections during that time, but the drain on my battery makes this app, in its current form, unusable.
