You won't get the money

November 17, 2018 by Calvin from United States

This has been an awful experience. I installed Smart Panel for at least 2 years. I have never redeemed the rewards for I thought I would just keep accumulating the amount. To my surprise, the action Smart Panel is taking now denies the fact that the company took my personal information, and are not willing to fulfill the terms of service. Smart Panel automatically canceled my account, and are unwilling to have proper communication with its members. I guess when it comes to paying its members, Smart Panel can find all kinds of excuses to dodge it. Smart Panel sold my personal information to other companies for 2 years, and I don't get what you promised?

I have been your member for more than 2 years. I traveled outside of the country, and now you are telling me that because I'm not in the US at the moment, Smart Panel deactivated my account, and I'm supposed to be fine with this?

I'm now back in the States, and guess what? I can't log in to my account to cash out the rewards.

This company tells you that you cant cash out and conveniently "deactivated" the account so that you can never cash out the money anymore.

Do not use

December 10, 2017 by Gregg from United States

Do not install this app. This app requires you to use a VPN which will brick the internet access of your computer, smartphone, & tablet. In other words you'll have to factory reset everything if you download that app

Crashed My Computer

November 6, 2017 by Angela from United States

As far as I know installing the app on my phone did not harm it. I have not uninstalled it yet, but I will be doing that shortly. However, immediately after installing it on my computer, my malware detecting software notified me that I needed to do a scan for potential malware. So I had it scan my computer. It detected malware and I had the software quarantine the threat. To finish this, the software has to restart the computer. Then the blue screen of death happened. There was nothing I could do. My computer was dead. Luckily, I have a friend who makes a good living fixing computers. He came over after his job and found out that the malware had infected itself into programming that is needed for the computer to operate. So when my malware detection system ran, it not only got rid of the malware, it got rid of essential programming as well. And that's what crashed my computer. So no, don't download this unless you want to take the chance of crashing your own computer. Not everyone has a friend that will fix their computer for the price of fixing them dinner.

Onerous Onboard and faulty App

October 23, 2017 by kris from United States

I tried the smartpanel app several times. I know it was installed because heretofore working apps started failing. I tried contacting support and they presented an arduous onboarding process. This group is also associated with and Their web sites read as if they are a progressive and together organization but I experienced something quite different. They are arrogant, the type of arrogance that does not believe in feedback. So if this group doesn't click with you, you should not expect that to change.
