Con Possible scam
Multiple people have reported Froot to be a scam.
Con No DNS leak protection
A DNS leak occurs when information starts "leaking" out of the encrypted VPN tunnel into unencrypted service provided by the ISP. In the case of a DNS leak, a breech of privacy can occur because traffic data is logged by the internet service provider.
Con Notoriously slow speeds
Many users of FrootVPN report slower upload and download speeds. The slow speeds are likely caused by the encryption/decryption process, as well as the server's distance from most users. Another possible explanation for Froot's slow speeds is that they were unprepared for rapid growth. When The Pirate Bay promoted FrootVPN, they gained 100,000 users at one time, putting a lot of strain on their servers.
Con Isn't always an effective way to deal with geoblocking
While VPNs are a popular way to combat geoblocking for services like Hulu or Netflix, FrootVPN is sometimes recognized by these services which results in declined access.
