Rocket VPN is a well-designed and effective virtual private network (VPN) app for Android that allows for anonymous browsing and access to geographically restricted content.
Rocket VPN helps give you that essential freedom of online browsing without fear of being monitored, and is great for travelers or those working in foreign countries,
Developed by Liquidum Limited, Rocket VPN helps keep you anonymous as you surf the web.
Rocket VPN’s primary feature is to provide a Virtual Private Network so your internet browsing activity does not appear to be coming from you. It allows you to change your virtual location to get past online government or job firewalls. That is, you’re in one country but it looks like you’re in a different one.
Users can select 10 different locations, ranging from cities in the U.S. (Seattle, Chicago, New York, and Miami) to locations around the world (London, Amsterdam, Shinjuku, Stockholm, Singapore, and Prague) in order to bypass blockers.
Rocket VPN provides you with 500 MB of data over 30 days to use for free. If you have a need for this type of app this should be sufficient to check it out and see if it works for you. If it does, there are unlimited data subscription options available.
It also promises that the data you send is securely encrypted and it automatically changes your I.P. to prevent sites from tracking you.
One of the neat features in Rocket VPN that we particularly liked was its ability to let you add in various shortcuts to your online browsers (e.g. Chrome, Gmail, Facebook, etc.) that you can easily access from within the app.
Overall, we love the concept of Rocket VPN and think that it could definitely be helpful for those who want to browse anonymously or who live in restricted countries.
Appearance and Layout
The appearance of Rocket VPN is fantastic, with a smoothly polished feel to the entire app. The icons look great and the app itself is fairly simple, with one main page, a subscription option page, and a page to change locations.
Advertisements tend to pop up quite often, but they can be quickly closed by tapping the X in the top corners.
The layout is easy to navigate through, which is particularly aided by its minimalistic design. Rocket VPN is a breeze to use.
Overall, we enjoyed interacting with the Rocket VPN app and were pleased with its appearance and layout.
Rocket VPN is free to download and use, while also offering in-app purchases (e.g. the various options regarding its pay-to-use subscriptions for unlimited usage). Rocket VPN is also ad-supported, with numerous popups appearing after making nearly any menu selection.
For one month of unlimited data and no ads, it costs $3.99. Three months costs $2.99/month and a one year subscription is $2.00/month. Rocket VPN allows you to cancel anytime, but make sure to read through all of their terms first.
Overall, this is an effective solution for accessing geographically restricted content and browsing the internet from your Android device anonymously.
While you’re getting it set up the ads can by a bit much though, so we’d like to see an IAP to eliminate ads. That being said, you’re the best judge so try it out for yourself and let us know what you think.
Rocket VPN requires Android 4.0.3 and up. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
