Astrill VPN is a SCAM (www.astrill.com)

Avoid Astrill VPN services at all cost! Their product doesn't work and they won't refund your money.

When I first lived in China, I used Astrill and it worked fine. I recently returned after 6 months of being away and purchased a 6 month subscription before entering into China. I downloaded all the recent updates prior to entering to avoid any technical issues. I tested my connection in the US and thought it would work in China. Well it doesn't and I've spoken to others that are now stuck with the bill and no service.

Email tech support is a broken record. They ask you to do the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. Try Stealth Mode, try changing your port, try turning off your phone, try reinstalling, etc, etc. How about try refunding my money and refund the money you took from other people.

I agree, since 6 months Astrill is not working anymore,

we subscribe for nothing before our departure back to France...

I am not recommended Astrill anymore

Astrill's working fine and, with a few hiccups, has been fine for me for the past six months.There may be better vpns however. Your choice.

One thing I have noticed though. I only have problems, if any, at home. In the office it works perfectly. Different service providers.

Astrill is very much a scam. For months on end, no service whatsoever on any Apple device. Complaints get a pro forma response about how they're looking into it, and no refunds or extension of service. I let mine lapse, and encourage others to look into more reliable VPN services before dropping your money into this black hole.

I can only repeat that Astrill's been fine for me, apart from the outages during political meetings in Beijing. Totally worthless...no. Very much a scam ... nonsense. Are there better vpns out there ... of course but it works fine for me at the moment. All this hate against Astrill in particular is very suspicious. Take it with a pinch of salt.

I have used 3 different VPNs over the last 5 years including Astrill and ExpressVPN. They work fine once you learn how to tweak the settings. However there is a much better VPN that has gone unnoticed by Big Red and that is the one I use now. And it was free when I bought an anti-virus package.

Astrill isn't a scam at all, it's one of the best known VPN provides around.

And because of that it's also the most targeted one by local censors. That's why I wouldn't use them (and of course their high price).
