Betternet VPN App Reviews

0 add

used to work

it used to work very well but not anymore wont even open on mac

unstable connection in China

I started as a free user and its connection is very unstable in china. With the hope to improve connection, I subscribed premium service and turned out it is a waste of money. Also what triggered me the most is that it cannot be used on my windows laptop at all (while capable to connect on my mac, tho automatically disconnected every 20 min)

great vpn

good one

Misleading / Didn’t work

On opening the app it says “Start 7-Day Trial” but there is nothing that says anything about if that means premium service? I feel I should not have to come back here to verify what that means. Next, there is nowhere that mentions here that the only “free” VPN available is the USA. I feel that is important information as most VPNs have standardized the feature that servers are available all over the world. Anyway, aside from the UI/UX problems, I gave it a one-star because after everything, it didn’t work.

Good and best

Wonderful apps! trust me!

does not work after updating

It worked fine before, but after I updated it to the latest version, it does not connect anymore, why…


I downloaded this app from the App Store. It didnt’ even launch. Now I’m wondering if it’s going to charge me. I agreed to a subscription to test it. I was given 7-day trial. The instructions said to cancel one day before the trial is over from the “Settings” menu. Well, the app doesn’t launch, how do I get to the settings pane.

From iPHone to Mac: AMAZING!

I first started using betternet on my iPhone and was absolutely thrilled when it went live for mac! This VPN service is LITERALLY the best one I’ve ever used!

Good Service

Great to use while overseas!!

Pretty Good Overall, Definitely Some Improvements Can Be Made

Speed is really fast! This is the main reason why I am using this proxy over the other ones.


i have no words to describe how awesome this vpn is.

low speed

Awesome VPN

Having some issues with it, but hey you get what you pay…which i haven’t paid a dime. I am thinking about it because i like and respect this product. Thank you guys check out my podcost friendly fire

An excellent VPN

Im using the free version and it really does what it is supposed to.

It’s FREE and easy to use

It’s FREE and easy to use

Worst app ever!

Downloading this app kept me from being able to connect to wi-fi without first restarting my computer. DO NOT GET IT

Good for phone but doesn’t work on Mac

Works so well on my phone, but it doesn’t recognize the application on Mac. I can’t even get to the login page after downloading.

Very unstable service

It has very unstable service even though I bought the premium. Sometimes the response if lagging, while another time it stops responding. I would recommend a better service if there is one.

All good so far

Will be returing to China in a few weeks and hope that the VPN will prove as helpful as it has here in the states. Ill let you all know …


Does not work if trying to watch Netflix!

What such a great APP!

Always use it!

its good

i like it its good and useful


Good. ajfajfajjajaja;lavnaslvnaa

It works just fine!

I tried several VPN apps, Betternet is the best one! Strongly recommend! Seriously, I don’t know why those apps rank higher than Betternet. Some of them can not even being connected. Keep it free and working! Some people living in some places of this planet will be grateful for your app!

not supporting all streaming platforms

fast, but not working with netflix and others platforms of replay service.


It has really helped me with getting into websites that i could not before access. The speed is great and the reliability is even greater. Would definitely Get.

Only problem is speed

The VPN does its job perfectly fine but the only complaint I have is it significantly slows down the internet speed to the point watching even a short video on youtube becomes a chore. Still a great free VPN though and I will continue to use it. Cannot wait to see how much this app progresses in the future


Very good thx

So far so good

It has been working for me. I have been using almost two months. I do not have lots of expectation (it is a free app) but really no complain. I have been constantly checking and it does so far without any problem hidding my IP address and gives me a different location. I met other people who have paid VPN and they had very slow service etc which I have not experience it yet.

Does not work

I need to use this to override my school’d VPN for spring break. It does not work for this, and because of Cisco Anyconnect it doesnt work at all.

Give me back my Money

I cancelled my subscription and I was still charged. Ridiculous. Improve your services instead of stealing people’s money for profit, it might actually get you loyal customers. WOULD NEVER DOWNLOAD AGAIN AND WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYBODY.

Hate it. Scam

I hate this app. They’re charging me and forcing me to purchase a subscription even though I onle want the free trial. Would not reccommend.

Great free app!

This app is amazing and I appreciate that they provide a great service for free!

I Accidentally bought premium and cant return

I cannot return my premium subscription I acidently purchased I don’t want to be charged and cannt do anything it says online.

I Love Betternet

Simple to use and free. Keep doing this amazing work guys!!

one of the better working ones i have ever used

i have tried using a lot of these and they all have something i dont like about them but this one is great!!!

Useless as a global VPN.

This product is pay-to-play through and through, unless you’re trying to keep your IP in the US, which kinda defeats the purpose of a VPN in the first place. “Free” is just a marketing trick, one that I personally don’t appreciate; call it what it is (a paid, subscription-based service), and stop yanking our collective chains about the price for the service.

Doesn’t work, FREE is a LIE!

Signed up for this “FREE” app. It is horribly expensive. PLUS, It doesn’t work. I’ve used Goldenfrog VYPRvpn with mostly success. This app does NOT give virtual IP address.

Great Product

This VPN service is simply amazing! I’ve never had to pay a dime for it and the VPN works everytime. I won’t change to another service. Thank you Betternet! :)

Thank you Betternet VPN!

It works! And it’s free!! Hooray!!! ISPs are now colluding with big corporations to slam people with copyright violations by monitoring their internet activity, basically like a wire tap. I was one of those people who received some letters accusing me of violations and threatening consequences. Betternet VPN may very well save my future ability to use the Internet. I found a good website to test the connection (including BitTorrent) and show if the VPN is working. I suggest you do the same.

VPN Proxy allows users to access porn.

If you don’t know what VPN service can do then you should be mindful that this app and others like it will allow uses to bypass parental controls for adult websites. That means your child can install this app and watch porn or if your a porn addict then this is a gateway. I wish apple would allow users to block on proxys apps.


I tried the free version for a week, but it didn’t work well so I updated it to the paid subscription. I only needed it for a month, so I uninstalled it afterwards. But turns out every month since it kept charging me the subscription fee for an app I did not have anymore. This app is a rip off and still has access to ur information even after uninstalling. Be careful what you do on it and off it!!

Cancelled subscription but charged for three more months

Betternet was the worst nightmare. I had cancelled the subscription on September but i was still being charged until December. After multiple correspondence with both Betternet and Apple, We were all finally on the same page and luckily i havent been charged for the month of January yet. If i had known ahead regarding all the hassles, just to cancel their service then i would have never used their service. Well, lesson learned and hopefully this post could help others when cancelling their subscription. LOOK OUT FOR ANY CHARGES EVEN AFTER OU CANCEL THEIR SUBSCRIPTION!!!



Does the iOS subscription work on OS version?

Can they use the same subscription or i have to pay for both versions? Thanks!

Good thing is I did not pay

Downloaded the free version and gave it a shot in China but it was unable to connect. Failed to connect on Both iphone and mac. Planned to go premium as long as the free version worked, unfortunately it didn’t. Save money for the next WORKING update or another similar app that works


Automatically charge you even you have unsubcribed.

works sometimes

Worked every time on my phone, but only worked 2 times over the course of 2 weeks on my mac laptop. I had used this once before in the summer in the same towns and it worked great. Made life hard on a work trip when I was counting on this working based on past experience. I was constantly trying to use my phone in meetings to access google drive sheets since I couldn’t use it on my laptop. This experience has made me leary of trying it again.
