  • Connectovity issues on ios version Aug 9, 2020

    By kaodvlav
    Hey, I love norton and Symantec, I use their products on my pc including norton secure vpn and have been a paying member for years. As I said I I use norton secure vpn on my pc and have no problems but on the ios version I have some connectivity issues, its sometimes a bit slow but the biggest problem is that whenever I open my phone for the first few seconds it disconnects from the wifi and I dont have internet, What I do is close the app that im using and go back to the homescreen for a few seconds and it will fix itself but its a bit annoying opening instagram and having no connection and having to close the app and wait for 5 seconds for the internet and vpn to start working. I know its the vpn and not my home wifi because I have done some tests and this doesnt happen with other VPNs. Its not a huge issue but I would love to get it fixed.

    I love the security but it slows down or won't open some of the apps I need for my job. I'm sure it's because of the use of cookies on alot of them. But I am always sure to have it on while conducting any type of financial transactions. Update: I really like the app, I've adjusted to the delay in connection to sites, understanding the need for security.

  • Better than most Oct 6, 2019

    By kidztested
    I’ve tried several VPN’s and this one like most will disguise your IP and block trackers but it also switches on independently meaning I turn it off it turns itself on, I turn it off it turns itself on - and so it goes unless you block its access. If it was auto protecting because it felt your Internet access was unsafe that would be one thing - but that isn’t the case. It can, I assume unintentionally, interfere with cellular data when wireless internet is not available and there is a large amount of pages that won’t display not because there blocked by the VPN but because there denying access due to the way the IP was masked and the “signal” as it were was routed. For example when accessing Google with the VPN on you might have to make several attempts to establish that connection and use Google. I don’t know if they have corrected this with the new update or this is simply inherent in all VPN’s only time will tell as tech improves. Oh and it is rumored that although - and I actually I like Norton - your personal history etc. is masked/hid Norton itself can ultimately track it - but that’s only if you believe some of the guys working in Military Intelligence- and no that’s not an oxymoron. So if you have to have one form or another of big brother watching I guess I don’t mind Norton. Ok got to go 5G is on the way and pervasive AI is right behind it - so to all a good night

    It works pretty well... I'm not some VPN expert by any stretch of the word but in my personal experience.. it says my connection is protected and it works pretty much every time except on garbage connections. It comes as part of the Norton 360 service so I don't really have any complains. The location selector does not allow for viewing of region locked content and your ipv6 address still seems to leak out so don't expect to fool the CIA if you know what I mean... Wink wink 😉 3 Stars overall.

    Excellent service & app by Norton. Connects very quickly & rarely have I ever faced any issues w.r.t speed or connectivity. Blocks ad trackers as well which is extremely important nowadays. Not sure if it is applicable only to Norton VPN but OTT apps dont work with this. Dont know if the setting is at OTT end or VPN end.

  • Doesn’t work, limits phone usability Oct 14, 2018

    By mslinscott
    This app is a giant pain in the neck. It does not maintain a VPN connection on my iPhone 8, so I have to try to reconnect EACH time I want to use my phone, whether I’m in a WiFi zone or just using cellular data. Reconnecting can take 2, 5, 7, or endless attempts, sometimes not connecting at all. Without connecting, I can’t use my map app, my weather doesn’t refresh, and so on. This makes my phone usability total garbage. For instance, yesterday I got caught in a construction zone and needed a quick detour. I tried to open my map app and it couldn’t refresh with my location until the VPN connected. I tried to connect over and over, but it didn’t work and I couldn’t get a route. This has been happening the entire first month of my subscription, although the app worked much better during the trial period. I do not recommend this app. I really love the idea of a VPN, particularly when I’m using a public WiFi, but being required to wait a few minutes or more each time I lift my phone to use it in my own home or when I’m out on the road is a huge headache. I wish I would have cancelled before I got trapped in a full year’s subscription.

  • Just don’t even bother to download it Jun 21, 2018

    By User user 321
    Yo so at first I was going to download this because I got a message saying I have 2 viruses from visiting “adult websites” and lets keep in mind I’m a young teen just trying to play my lemon game which is really fun so I looked up cheats for it you know. Cause I couldn’t get passed this one level so when I opened safari and looked up cheats and clicked the website the dumb notification came up. I’m the only person who uses this devise so there’s no way in the world that there’s adult websites on it. I’ve seen other people with the same complaint and the company just says something stupid about how it’s a 3rd party seller and all but if this was an actual legit great working app then they would have taken down the scam by now. So dont even try to blame the 3rd party seller. Plus it’s takes all of your money if you put your credit card number in. I’ve seen a bunch of people say that too! I personally think apple should remove it from the App Store! But if you want your money stolen and to be scammed then this is the app for you!!!

  • Crucial 100% Of The Time May 8, 2020

    By rdhenze
    Norton and Symantec personal and enterprise internet security products have provided my company and our customers and me and my family crucial protection for over 20 years. As technologies moved us from standalone computers to wired intranet enclaves to the wired Internet and now the evolving emancipation of wireless capabilities, we have witnessed the alarming pace with which Bad Actors have acquired tools to breach systems, corrupt and steal data from unprotected systems. Norton has stayed out in front, provided continuously improving their offerings. Norton’s Secure VPN encapsulates the communication between my device and the end point (websites) with which I am exchanging my sensitive information so that all the devices and other infrastructure through which it passes so it can’t be stolen or held hostage. When so many players in the Web and Internet galaxy are busily trying to extract more and more information about us to target us for “legitimate” business reasons on top of the Bad Actor exploitation, I can’t afford to allow my communications to be vulnerable. Norton’s Secure VPN is among the very best safeguards for wired and wireless Internet and Web transactions. It’s easy to use and updated frequently to stay ahead of emerging threats. Note: I have no affiliation with Symantec or Norton aside from being a customer, and I not received nor would I accept any compensation or consideration for my sharing this with you.

  • Best VPN ever made Sep 7, 2020

    By Shopify Life!
    This VPN is the fastest and most accurate VPN ever created for the public. Phones and devices are entirely hidden and can not be located by any source known to man. My phone has twice the speed, twice the ability to find internet search criteria with zero interference from ad companies, carrier services, phone maker or any other party from any source. No other VPN can even claim to compete or offer the protection given here. Simply Amazing that a VPN has broken the barriers that all news media, social media, marketers, phone companies and manufactures said will never be accomplished in this lifetime! Well, they are all wrong!!! Do not look any farther. This is the VPN that your wanting. I was not paid and have zero “ZERO” connection to any person or persons with offers or self gain to write this review. I am not a professional review personnel and have zero affiliation with any company that is connected to any source traceable not any Avenue- Period!!!

  • Works better for me than Nord VPN Sep 28, 2020

    By DylanWadleigh
    Four stars because, overall, the app does what it’s supposed to do. It’s been more reliable for me than Nord VPN. However, the set up experience was awkward for me, and in the end, my original account had to be superseded to get it working. I had a subscription before for Norton 360, but due to limited seats for devices on that plan I had to bump off my Mac so I could use Norton Secure VPN on my phone. Then, after bumping off the Mac I could no longer use the seat for my phone—despite that being the reason for bumping off the Mac in the first place. I had login issues several times on the Mac and my iPhone afterwards with both the original email and my back up email but eventually it worked. I decided to purchase 360 deluxe, and now, I can use Norton Secure VPN on all my devices.

  • VPN Configurations Problem Sep 6, 2019

    By 69Brothers71
    Downloaded the app maybe around six months ago. Worked great and was speedy in the beginning. After sometime it began to slow down my updates. Also, it used to two two locations with Japan and Singapore. Now it only gives the Singapore location. Suddenly, within the last month, the app won’t turn on and wants me to allow VPN Configurations. I allow it but it does nothing but gives me an error and won’t turn back on. I contacted tech support who really tried to help but couldn’t. Seems like their only solution (one I did before I contacted them) was to delete the app, restart my iPhone, then reinstall the app. Doesn’t work no how many times you do it. So now I have a VPN app that I paid for and doesn’t work. I want to give this app 5 stars from the beginning but with the slowing down of updates, only one location, and now inoperable, I give it three stars in the hope that somehow they’ll fix the issue. I reside in South Korea.

  • Functional, but has its quirks Dec 3, 2018

    By ShowMeHackerDan
    I’ve only been using it a couple days, and for the most part it seems pretty reliable. Sometimes it drops the VPN connection after establishing and initial connection, but it usually recovers. I’m not sure if this is a problem with the app or the WiFi network I’m connecting to. After installing the app, for reasons unknown, I could never connect to a server after accepting the terms and conditions. This went on for several hours even though I could access several other Norton sites. For whatever reason it finally started working. I was about to give up on it and try another app. One minor annoyance that should be an easy enhancement would be to support landscape mode. This is especially needed for iPad users as it makes multitasking more cumbersome without it. The application stays in portrait mode even when the device is oriented in landscape mode.

  • Good but could be better Jun 18, 2020

    By RP557
    Does its job well overall. Main complaint is upon reawakening the phone it sometimes takes forever to launch or doesn’t at all. Just sits there with the little wheel turning. Sometimes can turn it off and it auto turns back will get it to finally load. May have to repeat this several times before it does. When this doesn’t work will need to swipe up on the program to close it out and then reload it. Can be frustrating. Also does not like to be turned off. Will turn itself back on repeatedly before finally quits. For those times when a site won’t work with VPN or it won’t connect as described above and you need to immediately go to a site. This connectivity issue needs to be cleaned up.

  • A tad frustrated with ability to control the app Jan 22, 2019

    By WazeSir
    I have been a fan and huge supporter of Norton products, for many years. I have even used this app (through all its iterations) in other countries, and highly recommend it for such use. HOWEVER, the app should allow SOME control over whether to turn it on or off. Switching the button to “off” in iPhone settings does absolutely nothing. The app will continually try to ignore the request to turn it off. Why would someone want to turn off the app? Because at certain times, one would like to show his/her true location (some apps require location, and while using those, I do not want to show my location as elsewhere in the country). At other times, since my home is not within WiFi range of anyone else, I would like to decide whether to run the app, not be given no other option, with the (very) persistent “ON.” If Norton fixes this flaw, I will certainly improve my rating of their app.

  • This has problems... Oct 26, 2017

    By Turbocouch
    I’ve been using this for about a week. Once this is installed on my iPad Pro 12.9: Using my SlingBox is not possible with my iPad mirroring to my Apple TV. It worked flawlessly before. Trying to use the FiOS mobile app, at home connected to my Fios router, it cannot find the set top box. It will not allow me to turn off the VPN and remain connected. Lately it just keeps turning itself back on, after I turn it off. Even when I can get it turned off, I have no internet connectivity both with the WiFi AND Cellular service. When I turn this software off, it should stay off until I turn it back on. It should not interfere with my internet connection when I turn it off! I have to uninstall the app to get my internet back. I’ve done this three times when I really need the connection and it would not let me get to the internet. As soon as I uninstall it, my FiOS app works fine. I am in my own house and I can’t turn it off. This should be fixed. I am a paying subscriber for other Norton products, and I just signed up to pay for this. Please get on these problems quickly. I was trying to get directions using google maps on my phone, and the VPN was preventing getting the directions. I deleted the app, and the directions came through immediately.

  • Junk Jun 10, 2020

    By TheRealHamBome
    Since there has been no response from product support to the ongoing issue (other than the first one to this review which was no doubt a bot), today I switched my PC to McAfee and VPN to ExpressVPN. Goodbye and good riddance. The developer responded to the review in the App Store. I followed their instructions and there has been no response in over a week. It makes me think that the robotic response to critical reviews is for show only. As I said in my original review, I tried a few times to get Norton to respond before putting the review in the App Store. Proceed with caution. This app is junk. I converted from another VPN app (which worked fine) because this one is part of the bundle on my PC. I am sorry I did that. Norton VPN frequently disconnects. Incredibly frustrating when it does that when I’m in the middle of working on something and then work is lost. I have shared the behavior with Norton multiple times over the course of months and there is no response. Glad to take my money. Not helpful in addressing the issues.
