Terrible Service

September 30, 2016 by David from United States

Yes you do get paid, which I took advantage of for the $5 monthly to my PayPal. The problem with this site is that if you tell them you have 6 devices in the house, then all of them have to have the software to earn. You're better off saying you only have a cellphone or some old computer that is connected to the internet. The software itself slows your computer down, but what is worse is that it requires a proxy connection to work, which will cause problems with your internet connection. If you know what you're doing with computers, it's a hassle, and if you don't, you're screwed. Also my wife's account was "disqualified" because you're not supposed to have more than one account per household. Avoid this company, their are better ways to make money.

Do not waste your time!

On joining, you get emails giving you instructions on how to install the app on your devices and confirmation that it is correctly installed. So far, so good.
On emailing them, they kept saying that there was no user registered at my email address (apart from one occasion when I was told there had been a 'blip on the system' the previous day and that they had found the account. Yet they continually send emails to this address - the last one being a request to say how wonderful they are with a view to publishing on their website!
Needless to say, they have never paid me a penny and I have now removed the app from all devices.
Also, I was continually getting a 'shockwave crash' message on my desktop - since removing the Smart App, this has not happened.
If I was allowed to give zero stars, I would!

Very poor and misleading

Nowhere in my invite was a VPN network (proxy) mentioned....internet constantly disconnecting due to their servers being unresponsive. Their website is mainly password protected even for basic pages like ...or perhaps this is because I am not on their proxy! I blamed my ISP for my issues until i noticed google chrome saying "waiting for proxy tunnel" in bottom left corner! this should be considered as malware, they don't make it clear what they are doing to your system(and who knows what else they have done......)

Don't join

It is nice they increased their rewards the beginning of this year so you can earn quarterly bonuses but it is not worth it. Bad experience after I installed the app on my PC. It changed my LAN settings to proxy which affected my ability to connect to the Internet. Yes I could change them back but they would change back to proxy every time I rebooted the computer. Also I found this app disabled Google search. It was not my preferred search engine but found out it didn't work by accident. And last week my computer crashed and had to set it back to factory settings. Not 100% sure what happened but I have reason to believe this app played a huge role because my Google Chrome became infected. I had a few programs installed on my computer that I thought were questionable so after I fixed my computer I then tried installing them one by one looking for the culprit. And after I reinstalled the Smart Panel app the LAN settings went to proxy and Google search did not work. So that appears to have been the problem. Yes you can make a little money if you keep the app installed and running. Over $100.00 a year. But if you install this app you are doing so at your own risk. It didn't really work out for me. I also ran into issues both with receiving rewards on a timely basis as well as cashing out although I always was eventually able to. The only thing that is good is that their customer service responds quickly usually within 24 hours. But this panel is not worth all the hassles it gave me.
