  • Mediocre, not super dependable. Will we get a beneficial update soon? Dec 1, 2018

    By sin_cerely
    The updates seem to never really solve the biggest problems. This app, which I have paid for the last two years, frequently drops the connection to the server and does not reconnect. It doesn’t notify you either. I suddenly realize on public WiFi or at home that suddenly I’m no longer connected to my VPN. Happens during active use or idle periods. Additionally, every couple weeks or so it will say that it has to reinstall the VPN profile out of the blue. Closing the app and relaunching sometimes fixes this. Very annoying especially when your connection is no longer secure. Sometimes it asks to reinstall the VPN profile back to back to back even with a reboot of my phone. IPhone 10 and 6+ have identical problems running this app. I’m going to start looking for a better VPN service before my next years payment. Time to do some homework and hope to not deal with the same frustration with other providers. I’m even willing to pay significantly more elsewhere just not to be frustrated so often. I have other apps from Avast that work flawlessly so why can’t they get it together with SecureLine?

  • Improvements are nice but do not consistently work May 18, 2020

    By BadBrain13
    The latest release includes improvements that would make this a 5 star app if they worked consistently. Unfortunately I’m still experiencing connection issues when I first unlock my phone, along with other random issues. After unlocking my phone about 50% of the time it will show me connected to vpn (via icon next to WiFi icon) but I have no connectivity. When I open the SecureLine app it will say I have no connection and only option is “retry” button. I have to go into settings to physically turn off vpn to get access to my lte or WiFi. Then I can reconnect SecureLine. Another problem is with turning off vpn for short term like 15 minutes. It will not automatically reconnect after 15 min(or an hour), and when I go to settings auto connect IS turned on but it says I’m not connected to SecureLine because I’m on a trusted network— even though I have no trusted networks and it is listing zero. I have to try to disconnect to get reconnected to SecureLine. I actually suggested this feature over a year ago and hope they are able to shake out the bugs so it works as expected. Other random times the vpn icon will show I’m connected but nothing will load until I change vpn location. Things still seem very buggy and not reliable. I’m looking forward to the day I can unlock my phone and open an app/website without my SecureLine vpn locking things up.

  • Good app but needs tweaks Jan 12, 2019

    By Musicalisch
    I have ATT internet but am switching to Spectrum. No problem using VPN app while I was an ATT subscriber. Instead of an ATT modem-router combo, I bought my own router to go with the Spectrum modem to avoid rental fees. That is where my troubles began. I could not get the Netgear app to work on my iPad and one suggestion was that VPN could interfere. I ended up switching to a Linksys router. I was able to connect the Linksys app after setting up my account on my laptop, but my internet connection became a problem. I kept getting disconnected. So, I deleted the Avast VPN app on one iPad. No problem connecting on that one. Since I still have ATT, I connected to the internet on my other iPad using ATT and went into the Avast app. I disconnected the “connect automatically when not on a trusted network” feature and was able to connect to the internet again. Then I decided to add the Linksys router to my trusted networks. So far it is working. I went into copious detail so maybe people with more technical knowledge can figure this out. I am not sure if the problem is with Spectrum’s internet settings, the change to a separate router and modem, the app or what. BTW, initially the Spectrum connection worked, then it stopped working later in the day. I may end up manually connecting the VPN if my solution does not continue to work, something I can live with.

    Doesn't connect. Have uninstalled & reinstalled several times and to no avail. It works on my PC but doesn't pair with my Android. If this changes I will change my review, but don't recommend if you're looking for Android VPN. Another frustrating technology experience & more time I have to clear my schedule for to attempt to resolve the issue. Thanks to the help team for a quick email response.

  • Last update made this app a NO GO Sep 29, 2017

    By Edboone
    The most recent update made a decent app (by an otherwise crummy company whose stuff does NOT work on PCs) finally as bad as the rest of their stuff. It now disconnects constantly, does not reconnect, and -this is really cute- no matter how many times you select “automatic reconnnect,” that option will not remain selected! So every couple of days it will stop reconnecting, you’ll have to re-open the app connect, go to settings, select “automatically reconnect,” and then wait and see how long it works this time! I was already set on not renewing my subscription on my phone once the company’s product didn’t work on my PC, and they provided customer service that was unhelpful and eventually just stopped replying. At this point, I’m about to go find a new VPN and put that on my phone and PC, and just write off the rest of my Avast subscription as a lesson learned on what companies not to buy products from.

  • scam app removed my review, reposted Jun 19, 2020

    By joshbwwwww
    Not until recently had I noticed that my refund ¥328 as a whole for the premium offered 3 year subscription order on Feb 11th did not get processed, instead, Avast sent me a letter on Feb 14th saying it was processed. The thing is that my money had stayed at Avast for 60 day trial order on Feb 20th, which was partially auto deducted ¥248 on April 20th for the official order which is only one year subscription and I did not get the rest ¥80 back, still. I don’t understand why I didn’t get the Avast notification that my previous order refund was to stay for another trial order and charged partially for the official order 60 days later. If someone had been notified officially that his money, even if it was a premium offered price, would have been taken for a hold and finally resulted in an one year subscription without special offer, he’d have thought it twice.

  • Difficult to remove and not very useful Apr 23, 2019

    By SamSBD
    I generally like avast stuff but this offering falls into an unethical area. Firstly, I was looking for an antivirus, not any of the other stuff this offers and of course it does not include an antivirus; why was it the first search hit? Then, when the trial time ran out (I had cancelled the subscription stance I didn’t need it), suddenly, all I could do online is renew the subscription; the link for being taken off the list did not work. The vpn it forced my phone through would turn itself back on after being turned off. I had to actually remove the app to be able to use the browser without this its interruptions. I could see how an older or less phone savvy person might get frustrated and just keep buying the subscription. That is not an ok tactic to employ and it makes me want to reconsider using your other products.

  • Meets my security needs Dec 17, 2017

    By rrtahoe
    I have been using AVAST Secure Line VPN for about a year. It was a little pricey when I got it last year but, they have since made this product much more competitive. It works flawlessly and very easy to use. I have seen other reviewers for other services talk about having multiple locations. However, I feel there are plenty of locations to choose from with Secure Line. I became aware of this service with my PC AVAST virus protection where they offer secure Line with the service as an option that has worked well for me. So I have confidence in the product for my IPhone and IPad.

    Very good App. Reports show I'm not bèìng targeted much, but it only tàkes one of the worst hacking for them to access Most Confident Banking Data to be left at great financial loss! I feel a lot safer with Avast, but I still fell victim to a Malware virus using VPN whilst on Chrome and for me it was hard to get rid of. Because of that, I feel I can't afford to award the full 5 stars. My rating for you falls to Four Stars.

  • Problem after cancellation May 6, 2020

    By cereal-Kiiller
    Just informing Avast App tech support that I deactivated the trial subscription 24-36 hours before deadline/Ending period! Well I received an email stating that they had tried to charge my account for a (year subscription) , and I would never do any subscription for that period of time “ Too Long” also and thank gawd I moved all my funds to a new card/Account!! Avast inc. please have your app creators or billing people fix this issue because I’ve tried many TRIALS looking for the perfect VPN/DNS/LAN etc Protection, and security for all mentioned and for my iPhone mainly to make my location and self anonymized from all the ad And spam and also employers who have no business having my location among other rules they’d like to have enabled “NOT HAPPENING”! Please fix this as I did unsubscribe well before the subscription ended!! Thanks in advance ...

    Best VPN ive ever tried and i have tried a LOT. very easy to use, amazing results (mobile and pc versions use different subscriptions keep that in mind if you're paying for the year thinking you can connect that subscription on both pc and mobile. Unless you start off on pc then you can choose up to 10 devices, but only for that application and there are three you need to get the full benifits of Avast. There are free trials but its still annoying. That is the single only reason for the 4 stars)

  • Worked well for a few months then did not... Mar 18, 2019

    By NMJ-sw
    I started using the Avast VPN on my Iphone and PC. For about 6 months it worked ok except that sometimes Google won’t let you do a search because it detected too many searches from the proxy server everyone was using. So i had to disable the VPN to use Google. I am not sure what happened at 6 months (maybe an update?), but after that it never worked well. Some problems were: - i get a License expired notice in the middle of the license term. Then this cleared after a few days. - the VPN did not turn on automatically like it used to before. I would be using the phone and realize later that the VPN was not active. Then i would manually start the app. That is very inconvenient and resulted in not using it at all. - when i am at home using my WiFi, the app would not allow me to start the VPN at all. It would give a message that said somethinh like “cannot use VPN when using a trusted WiFi connection. Remove trusted WiFi connection to use VPN”. What is the point of this limitation? Even if i am using a trusted WiFi from my home the ISP provider and websites i am accessing can still track me. But the app is not turning VPN on until I forget my WiFi and connect using LTE. Today my license expired so i am not going to renew it. Will try something else for a change this year.

    I love the software but I am tired of double billing between my computer and cell phone. Every time I tried to enter the key to link my subscription it would fail.... I will also say that I have issues using the VPN on my PC as the ISP doesn't particularly like it and throttles my data down.... frustrating. But... again, I feel safe with the full protection.

    By Unsure70
    I love Avast Premium on my computer, not one problem, but this VPN has only worked off and on for the past year or two. When connecting to WiFi, it connects and disconnects over and over making WiFi connection impossible. It will be fixed one update and back to unfixed the next, I will not renew this VPN when it comes up for renewal. I’m sorry but enough is enough.

    The app is good and I love that I can have it automatically connect when I join a WiFi network but I can specific trusted networks where it won’t connect. However, I’ve already subscribed to the service. Why am I still getting notifications to pay $3 more per month for multiple devices? If it continues I’ll have to look elsewhere for my VPN app.

  • Latest Update Jul 7, 2020

    By Longtime Avast User
    Ever since the last update the vpn tells me there’s no internet connection—when there is—so I have to always click “retry.” When I change to a different country location it still shows me as local and in English not the country’s language. The Photo Vault tells me to upgrade even though I have bought the premium package. Maybe I can delete the apps and reinstall, but I would have to backup one by one and don’t have time for it. Before the update I had no issues. Maybe your aesthetic update did not help the main use of the apps. Please fix these issues, thanks. iOS 13.5.1

    App refused to respect its own internal settings. Continually would connect on its own even when set not to. If this app can't even do basic functions how do I know it's doing anything else correctly? I don't. Uninstalled. Cancelled. Edit: Like an idiot I tried this again, and even after all this time it *still* has the EXACT SAME ISSUES.

  • Shuts down too much Aug 24, 2019

    By securemy1st
    When set to auto connect it will often lose connection to the point that the app won’t open to allow it to be turned off. It often gets hung up where it turns on and off every split second and won’t allow a connection to WiFi or allow you to turn it off. It’s therefore unreliable and a waste of money. Note: When it happens I am unable to click on the cog wheel and unable to do anything until it resolves itself. When it does, I quickly turn it off.

    I got a 60 day trial so that i tried it and its very disappointing. The connection is not strong. Speed test gets interrupted halfways. The app says that israel is good for my location but its the farthest location and i manually select the close one. I was thinking to buy it because of cheap pricing as compared to others but i think its not really worth it. They really need to improve servers and add a ping tool in the app so it can identify which server is close to us.
