Slow speed on iOS & more 1/5
According to Ookla Speedtest app my download speed w/o Avast SecureLine is 117 Mbps. With it is 3.13 Mbps. Not to mention having to go through a Captcha verification every freaking time I access my Safari browser “Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot”.
I’ve been with Avast vpn for a long time but if not fixed soon enough I’m walking away. I’ve had it.

Can't work 1/5
By As long as you want!
In CHN, I try many times, it doesn't work! The same account can work smoothly on laptop! Please fix it! Thanks!
It’s becoming lousy every other day 1/5
When I first purchased this vpn it was connecting fine and fast but ever since the two updates it’s very lousy it keeps disconnecting every now and then and sometimes fails to connect and keeps blinkering it’s impossible to connect on mobile data too I only use it on WiFi am disappointed
This is a great affordable VPN! I love you Avast!
Too buggy for use 1/5
By Erik veal
I had this on my phone for about 3 weeks, it would constantly be “connecting” and when I would choose to disable the VPN it would automatically reactivate after a few seconds. This problem has made my only solution to be to uninstall the app. I would say about 10 times a day the VPN would be endlessly reconnecting rendering my internet usage impossible. I don’t recommend this app until this is fixed.
Last Update Very Bad 1/5
The last update scrambled my iPad like a virus. If I try to connect VPN, it turns of my wireless connection. Checked for viruses - no dice. It started right after I downloaded last update. So now I can't use Avast VPN at all. Pisses me off.

Update on 20 April 18 bricked the app 1/5
By Pseudo Dyonius
I bought this app a couple of years ago, and it has been very uneven in its functionality. But the update on 20 April 2018 contains a bug that shuts the app down every time it is opened. If you’re interested, wait for the next update.
Super slow Internet speeds would be the first concern... but I purchased a multi year subscription for my primary laptop, and now to renew just an iPad subscription which I personally purchased separately they want me to pay $60 a year just for one iPad even though I’ve already paid for the computer? That’s $120 year. The service department is brutally incompetent... i’m moving over to TunnelBear idiots. This isn’t a fast service anyway it’s rather pokey.
By patrick mccrerey
Having use this product for number of years, I was surprised to find out that I had issues when I purchased a new IPhone X. Their customer/technical support was unable to resolve my concerns and problems. I had no choice but to go with another product. The kicker is I had over a year remaining on my original subscription and customer service is refusing to refund even a portion of that amount.
Was actually working ok until. 1/5
By K Dec kvbc
Last update screwed everything up again. The app is once again unreliable . taking up to 6 seconds to reconnect and shutting down during browsing , switching from wifi to Lte or Lte to wifi is painful to watch. It leaves you wondering how much of your browsing is unprotected waiting for the Vpn to reconnect.
Costs $59.99, not $19.99 1/5
The description says that the cost is $19.99 per year. After you download, the app says that it will charge you $59.99 per year.
What's the Problem? 5/5
By Scootch Tastic!
Update: the new app works flawlessly and if anyone is having problems, then I suspect you don't know what you are doing. I've had it running without any interrupts for over 24hrs, so this app is gold! Learn to configure it before you start harping on the Devs. 5 Stars!
Perfect App is v4.3.2
Barely disconnects, decent D/L & U/L speeds and if it does disconnect it reconnects immediately. Recommend getting the iOS only license for your phone and download the *.dmg from their website, not the App Store for your MAC, to avoid any issues.
I never had any issues with this app and never updated this app after v4.3.2 and I'm using an iPhone SE (iOS v10.3.3). Since I never had issues with this app, I didn't see the need to update it. I will test the app's update after I backup my device.
If the update is unreliable, then all these poor reviews are justified and doesn't make me feel very confident and if the MAC's App Store version is anything to go by, then it's not worth it. So far (for me), it's a 4 Star app. Let's see how it works after I update it.
5-star VPN 5/5

Amazing performance under a variety of conditions.
Did not work 1/5
By C from a teacher
App said it was active and secure - it was neither. I bought secure line for two devices -I thought!
Great Value 5/5
Always like avast
Got my updates 5/5
I asked for key features such as recognizing trusted networks and disabling on cellular and get them. 5 stars love this app, worth the money.
How does $2.50 a month equate to $59.00? No thanks.
Netflix don't work
Avast VPN 5/5

Terrible support 1/5
By The Boss SW
The sights site support is non-existent, if you have no problems your lucky, TOTAL waste of money.
Can’t use in China 1/5
Nah, I don’t expect any VPNs that can be use in China
Please fix 3/5
By Ashley Citibnker
The VPN auto connects even when I turn it off n turn off auto connect feature. the VPN turns on when I’m using my cellular data and WiFi is turned off. Also a feature to add trusted WiFi connection cause it turns on when I’m on my secure home WiFi and also when I’m on my tether phone connection or mifi which is also secure.
Great VPN! 5/5
Easy to use, fast an no fuss VPN. Highly recommend if you spend a lot of time connecting to free WiFi or want access to geo blocked content. Great for traveling. Thank you for the great updates!
Meets my security needs 5/5
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.
Doesn’t work with Netflix 1/5
Specifically says in their advertising that it lets you watch geo-restricted content. I travel in the us and want to browse safely on public hotspots so I use SecureLine, but with Netflix I have to choose whether I want to be safe or if I want to watch Netflix. I don’t even want to watch stuff that’s outside where I’m at. I understand that Netflix is the one imposing the rule, however avasts advertising should be clearer that it doesn’t always work for geo restricted content and possible specifically call out that it doesn’t support that feature with Netflix.
A Fantastic VPN App 5/5
Thanks For The Placebo effect.
Avast functionality 5/5
By Hugh Woodman Enterprises
I really appreciate the design idea and simplicity of the effectiveness, efficiency, dependability and of course unprecedented level of security Avast Secure offers their clients!!!
Edboone is an idiot: Best VPN out there 5/5
By Sir Whale God of Beluga
Avast is great in every product they provide. Don’t listen to biased reviews. I’ve tried 4 different conpanies with cybersecurity protection software, and avast is the best I have seen so far. Keep up the great work you guys! We all thank you for your hard work.
Keeps me and my devices safe 5/5
I haven't had any problems with it since purchasing a year ago!
This last update, the wifi doesn't automatically connect in more than 50% of the time. 3/5
I want the last update reinstalled. U already had an automatic connection in the last app in the 2nd screen. Why did u have to be redundant?
90% of the time connections were very good. If I selected a city 50 miles away or best option for itself to choose for me. Sometimes I selected a city 1,000 miles away, & a okay.
bbc i player from GB is not working :-((( 1/5
and with sky the connection is sometimes slow
Good App but Why Ads? 3/5
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.
Systems Support Administrator 5/5
No ads and actual internet speed 5/5
Most important you must know for a great VPN app that provides an actual internet speed you’re connected to and no ads during the use of the app ON and off so thumbs up to developers 👍🏻
Need to add more countries 3/5
Only 22 countries? C'mon--other VPN plans offer way more countries to choose from.
Never a moment’s worry 5/5
By Tica Mama
I have been using Avast on all of my PCs and cell phones for years without any problems. My family currently has 6 pcs, 4 laptops, and 3 cellphones. Avast is the only protection we use. I highly recommend using it.
Can’t use my apps! 1/5
This was working ok until the last update. Now I can’t use some of my apps or even websites from my phone. What happened?
Free or what? We’ll see huh? 1/5
Not sure why advertise it free if it truly isn’t.. going to try it.. but free should mean just that.. just saying I like things up front not to be mislead into it.. see that’s what I thought can’t even try it for free. I’m not paying for a week free.. just to see if I like or not. That crazy! Sorry your loss.
A good VPN App with few issues. This app is the eighth I've subscribe to. Nevertheless it is the easiest to use and the most reliable and the most reliable I've used so far.
Does not work with ios11. No refund given. 1/5
I paid for a year. It stopped working after ios10. No refund given for unused portion of the year.
Last update made this app a NO GO 1/5
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.
Paid for the app. Now I get ads!!! 1/5
I shouldn't be getting ads in a PAID app.
Thank you 5/5
What did you do in the last update?! 1/5
By Amy Angry
UPDATE: So, Avast emails me and says it's my connection that keeps making me disconnect and acted like their app is perfect.
Riddle me this then Avast, why the hell is it ONLY your app that gets disconnected every 5 minutes?! NO other app I've EVER had has not worked as much as this stupid thing. I'm so frustrated, too, because I paid for this crap and everything I do online takes twice to three times as much time because your piece of sh** app turns itself off literally around 20-30 times an hour!!!!! I am so sick of it!
I want a refund!
It was finally working! For nearly an entire month it stayed connected for really long periods of time. I've had this app for about 6 months and that was the only month I was truly happy with it. But now it's back to sucking again! Thanks a lot! I am so sick of this.
Why is it that avast has been around for years and years and cannot fix their issues with connectivity and yet people who come out of nowhere are able to create apps that run smoothly and actually stay connected?! Aren't your engineers even the least bit embarrassed? What's the point of releasing an app that doesn't stay connected????? Greed! That's what I think. Either create an app that actually works or just stop creating apps! Please.
This is the worst VPN ever, I downloaded the app, paid for it, and when I changed my location to Dallas, I checked my Up location and found out it was in Czech Republic. It's a shame, don't waste your money on this useless App
Fine app 5/5
This is a fine, reliable security app, very user friendly and does what it is designed to do. As a person In Avery hostile hacking environment, I have used many many VPNs and few have performed as reliably as SecureLine. Good job!
By RC Cop
Please take this app off my purchase list
