Spotflux offers mobile and desktop solutions for using the internet anonymously. Their cloud service performs millions of calculations to get rid of adverts and tracking cookies, as well as helping to stop you from wandering onto harmful websites. You can easily switch locations and servers, gaining access to location-restricted websites.
Spotflux.com seems to mostly target mobile users. That’s not a bad thing necessarily, since so many of us now use a variety of mobile devices to access the internet. It’s no good being protected on your desktop, only to let those defences fall when you log in using your phone or other mobile device, is it? No.
So what exactly do they provide in their mobile package? Well it’s an unlimited VPN service, which essentially hides your location and identity whilst you use the internet. They send your signal through a server in another location, so you can appear to be using the internet from another country entirely. There are multiple locations to choose from, and you can easily switch between them as you see fit.
Another feature of the software is to prevent unwanted data from being loaded onto your device. This includes adverts and malicious content. Your privacy is also protected from hackers and data collectors, so you won’t find yourself bothered by intrusive messages or promotions.
Apps are available for Android and iOS devices, plus you can register up to 5 devices, including Mac and Windows operating systems. When on a mobile device, you can compress data so that it won’t consume your bandwidth, helping to prevent you from overuse and consequently receiving large bills from your mobile service provider.
The website includes a blog but when we tried to access it we got a 404 error message. The site is lacking quite a lot of information about the services provided and how they function, especially when it comes to compatibility and protocol details. In fact, there’s a general lack of information around the site, although the searchable FAQ isn’t bad. You can contact support by sending an on-site message, but otherwise there aren’t many ways to get immediate help.
Spotflux is suitable for a range of mobile devices, and it’s easy enough to use. However, you don’t have all that many options to control the security settings. Torrent sharing, P2P and other features are also missing, so spotflux don’t offer quite as comprehensive range of tools as we’d like. As such, the services on offer are probably best suited to people who want to use a simple VPN over several mobile devices. There are free services available but these seem a little unreliable. However, their superior paid package prices are relatively low for the year.
