HOW IT WORKS
A VPN, or virtual private network, establishes a secure connection between your Mac and one of our private servers, which are located around the world. Our VPN app conceals the network activity that passes through it, preventing any third party from collecting and deciphering its contents. In turn, OverPlay replaces your IP address with one of our own shared IP addresses, making it impossible to distinguish an individual person’s activity or physical location.
+ Improves streaming speeds

+ 24/7 customer support

What's New in Version 4.0
• New Server List
You can now see the load and ping time of each server in the expanded server list.Simply tap or click on the number of servers in a location, and the list will expand to show you detailed information for each individual server.
Another highly sought-after feature for Overplay was the ability to reconnect automatically whenever you are disconnected from a server. We took that a step further and added the ability to automatically reconnect your whenever you open Overplay. You can connect to your last used server, the fastest server available, or a server in a particular country.
• IPv6 Leak Protection
We have added additional security features to protect your privacy whenever you are online. IPv6 leak protection will keep your IP address protected more reliably when you are connected to a network that has IPv6 support.
• DNS Leak Protection
We have added additional security features to protect your privacy whenever you are online. DNS leak protection will keep your IP address protected more reliably by making sure your DNS lookups do not leave the VPN tunnel.
Customer Service for detailed problems doesn’t exist
I've used Overplay for about 3 years now, but the last few software updates seem to have sent this APP backwards rather than forwards. Right now I have an ongoing problem which I reported over one month ago and I just keep getting the runaround from their support people. It is pretty obvious that they have the usual front people who can diagnose rudimentary installation issues, but when you confront them with a problem that crashes the APP everytime you try to run it, they don’t have the resource or the back office people to solve it despite the fact that I sent them all the crash reports etc... It’s a shame - when I first installed this on my MAC it worked fine - very few dropouts and the download speed was reasonable, plus you had a wide variety of servers to access. Now it is far from optimal and I have had to go elsewhere. There are lots of VPN suppliers out there and a lot of them now are offering lifetime membership for a one-off payment. I would not recommend Overplay any more, as technically they do not have the support and they are still wanting a monthly subscription.
Excellent Paid VPN App
This app works exactly as described when I logged in from Hong Kong. I was able to log on to Google from a computer inside the United States.
Several of the negative reviews seem focused on the cost of the VPN service and there are several plans which are clearly laid out by the company on the website, as well as some discount deals. This app is similar to Kindle in that the app itself is free, but the service is not and you need to pay for the service on the company’s website.
Other negative reviews are focused on their lack of support service. I do need to note that I cannot comment on their level of support as I found the app so simple to install and use that I have not needed to contact support at all.

Rubbish - won’t connect. Don’t pay the money!
I’ve used OverPLay VPN for a few years and is ‘was’ good. This latest version is terrible. It won’t connect to any servers, in any country at either 128 or 256 encryption. I can’t believe I paid $99 for one year subscription and I can’t use it at all becuase it doesn’t work! DO NOT PAY FOR A SUBSCRIPTION it’s a complete waste of money. Thanks for nothing OverPlay.
