  1. Hello! You might want to submit a support request for that issue.
  2. Hello! It'll be helpful if you post which version of Eddie you're using - ideally with some logs attached as well.
  3. Hello! I've created a central sales thread for all you need to know about AirVPN sales. So I'm locking this thread.
  4. Hello! Here's some information about AirVPN sales - it has always been present in my new user guide, but apparently many people don't see it and therefore we repeatedly get the same questions related to AirVPN sales. New topics about AirVPN sales, will be referred to this thread. Please note that AirVPN does NOT make use of paid reviews or affiliate marketing, at any point, if you see 3rd party sale offers for AirVPN subscriptions. Please also note that the Halloween sale is a new addition since 2019 and that sales are now more of an "up to" kind, rather than a flat percentage for all subscriptions, as previously. What, When, How Long & How Much: AirVPN does not sell Lifetime subscriptions, period. Simply because it's too costly and wouldn't make sense for a high-quality service like this. There's basically 3 common sales a year. Airs Birthday, Black Friday and Christmas; potentially with New Year and Cyber Monday added, to prolong the sale period. All sales are typically, but not always, around 1 week long and often discount the majority of subscription plans. The % discount is not necessarily fixed at the rates seen below. The timing of the sales is roughly the same each year as well. Simply keep an eye on the announcement forum to catch the sale. I've added "CERTAIN" and "UNCERTAIN" to the sales. Certain = the sale will definitely come again next year. Uncertain = we don't know yet, as the sale might for example only have occured 1 time previously. [CERTAIN] AirVPN's Christmas sale has a discount of: 20%. Sometime around the 20th December. [CERTAIN] AirVPN's Birthday sale has a discount of: 25%. Sometime around the 30th May/June. [CERTAIN] AirVPN's Black Friday sale has a discount of: (up to 74% in 2019). Sometime during November. [UNCERTAIN] AirVPN's Halloween sale has a discount of: up to 74%. Sometime around 30th October. What if you miss the sale you wanted? Well, then you'll just need to wait until the next one, unfortunately. FAQ: Q = Question. A = Answer. Q: If I renew my subscription today, will it reset my expiration date or will it just add another year to the end of my current one? A: The new amount of subscription days are added to your existing amount of days. Q: When does XYZ sale end? A: If it's not stated in the opening post made by Staff, then we don't know. But it's usually at least a week, give or take a few days. Look at the previous year for the sale in question. Q: Is there no Black Friday this year? A: Black Friday occurs at a different time every year, but always during November. Q: Can a sale be extended so that I can save up/get paid first/do XYZ? A: No, probably not, so don't expect it. Q: How does the "up to" sales percentage work? A: Like this. If there's any other questions, then please feel free to post them in this thread . The main goal of this thread is to keep the forums organised, informative and accessible. P.S. There's now a discrepancy between this thread and the equivalent sales section in my New User guide. So until I update the guide, then this thread is the most precise regarding sales.
  5. Hello! One could say, that the real high stakes power move is to recommend that he switch to PIA, to find out why AirVPN is better .
  6. Hello! No. As per my guide, you'll also see it explained that future placements are not announced ahead of time.
  7. FYI, we can now see that it lasted from the 30th October until the 4th of November.
  8. I got it as well. But I'm certain there's going to be those who find it annoying. Perhaps Staff should just add a "Notifications" tab underneath "Logs" or "Overview" and just let a red 1 appear - much like the forum notifications.
  9. Hello! Haha, this sudden orange onslaught did provide a slight scare, I must admit. But this is new: you're now doing Halloween celebrations. Staff, I suggest you also do Chinese New Year celebrations around January/February. That, coupled with the Black Friday, Christmas/New Year and Birthday celebrations, will ensure you've got the VPN market cornered from November to May. Leaving only a few months of summer for the competition, where in many places of the world, it'll be too hot to be sitting inside using a VPN anyway . At any rate, I think you've used up the last 9 years of marketing budget getting that font to work .
  10. Hello! Then please submit your feedback with the appropriate logs in the corresponding beta thread:
  11. Hello! This is excellent news. But you added an unusual warning at the end, which seems unusual. Wondering if it'll spread more FUD than necessary and perhaps not get you the same amount of feedback, in return. Anyway, it's working for me so far. The only minor errors, are UI texts. Not bad Staff :). Here's the changes, for anyone who doesn't want to follow the links:
  12. Hello! That has already been addressed many times before . In short, Air already does. I would recommend that you read some of the questions and answers in the guide in my signature, as you'll be able to find many links to other security and privacy-related features.
  13. Hello! I've already addressed that line of questioning in the guide in my signature. Please look under the First Questions section. Among the answers, one answer is that Air has on many occasions stated how it's not required that you trust AirVPN, if you follow the "partition of trust" way of doing things.
  14. Hello! Didn't you see the Brazilian server that was just added?
  15. Hello! That's answered here.
  16. Hello! Please read the First Questions section in the guide in my signature. TL;DR: No service can guarantee such a thing, not least because even the best security can be undermined if the user isn't careful. But in certain scenarios, yes a VPN will help - such as if you're connecting to a WiFi network while connected to AirVPN - then would-be eavesdroppers on the network will have a much harder time. Practically, you can start with using Network Lock, then go about checking how private your browser is, such as through the EFF panopticlick website. From there, experiment with privacytools.io for example.
  17. Hello! I note the change: So everything below the 1 year plans, do not get the discount anymore. It's still weird to me, that the birthday celebrations still aren't the ones with the biggest and widest discounts. Seems more worthy to me . Happy birthday.
  18. Hello! It depends on the latency and/or what IP you want at the time. Otherwise they're all essentially the same. Boredom? Otherwise not really - usually not for new users at least. It's considered a superior choice to pick one outside your home country - use the black/white lists. Do note that a VPN isn't a silver bullet for privacy though. Normally no. If you're using Network Lock, you won't be able to browse until the connection is reestablished. But just verify through ipleak.net what IP you've got at any given time. Yes if you use Network Lock. No? ???? No? You may also read the guide in my signature.
  19. No, I don't think that's entirely accurate. We must assume that Air wants to add as many locations as possible, but only if it makes sense - both legally, but certainly also technically.
  20. Hello! It's refreshing to see a video review. I must say, that regardless of your review, that this is the most important: I'm impressed that you mentioned the forums as a useful element as a part of the VPN experience, in conjunction with the no logging. That's easily missed. But you missed the reasoning behind why AirVPN doesn't offer the live chat feature which you requested, it seems. Further, I don't think it's reasonable to list it as a con that there weren't enough or should be more servers and then not specify what - if any - you were looking for. But AirVPN just added a whole new country actually. Since security/privacy is one of AirVPNs selling points, I also think it would've helped your review, if you had made it clearer that Air doesn't just add any server because it's popular, but only if it's the right thing to do. In the same vein, you could then have considered adding some more factoids about those servers, such as them all being bare metal, which can be important for many reasons. There's many other aspects I think you could've gone more into: how Bitcoin is handled, the approach to P2P, Android Eddie and so forth. You can read a list of Air-related security links in my guide's First Question section. I'm surprised you didn't mention the apparent complexity of Air that much. It was mentioned briefly with Eddie's menu's, while other reviewers usually make a bigger deal out of all the technical jargon. Perhaps in a future review, you could attempt to test certain features more. Such as - how good is Network Lock actually? After all, "killswitches" are a big deal, but they don't always work fully. Overall not bad .
  21. Hello! Please try airvpn.info
  22. Hello! Please see this link and submit a support request.
  23. Hello! Have you tried downloading the Beta client 2.17.2? There's instructions in my signature. Otherwise you can also try to submit a support ticket if you're still experiencing issues .
  24. Probably the end of May. But it's listed in my guide at any rate, in the First Questions section.
