@frostaloha Hey Andrew, we often hear the saying, that if you are not paying for the product, you are the product. Your mission really does resonate with me, but I would also be nervous to try a free VPN service. Would be good to hear what your thoughts are on this.

@asaddhamani As I mentioned below, we will have paid VPN features. But only to provide more flexibility, like if you want to pick the country of VPN server. Yeah, I know we have to build some trust first, but it doesn't come out of nowhere. That's why we've launched completely free, so more users could try it and make their own opinion. What I personally think is privacy is a basic human right, and you don't have to pay for it. Some of governments or regulation agencies or advertisers don't take it seriously anymore, but they still have doors in bathrooms, right? So I believe, we should have that corner with private space in your own phone. But there are people who can't use paid VPNs, or imagine, you are traveling and just need VPN for a few days. You'll spend lots of time to find, download, setup, pay and turn on VPN services and then - you don't need them anymore, but your VPN subscription will still suck your credits. That's when Aloha would come handy. It's a nice browser, with some extra features like downloads. And VPN just sits here, waiting to be turned on when you need it. Give it a try.

@frostaloha @asaddhamani doesn't really answer the question - what is your business model and how come you can offer services for free?

Hey, congrats for the the product. But before even trying it, I'm aware that Opera boosts the same features. How are you differentiating from them or other players in this market?
Andrew MorozMaker@frostaloha · Aloha Mobile
@alexstrafalogea Hi Alex, that's a good question. Have you ever read Opera's privacy policy? With their VPN they do record websites you are visiting and use it later for ad targeting. Or could trade this data with third parties. Which is killing whole VPN thing if you ask me. We in Aloha, don't record anything and our main focus is user's privacy, and it will always be like that. Have you ever been in situation when you open NSFW links in regular tabs and then you have to clear history, cache and stuff? Well, in Aloha you can just swipe down on this tab and it will become private one. Isn't it great? Incognito on the fly, now you're Batman! Plus, Opera doesn't support Downloads and it's on the market for a while. So why wait? Let's use Aloha and we'll do our best to proof we are better.

@xiaoyaosama Did you try (if you're there)? does it work?
Yao Xiao@xiaoyaosama · Product Fanatic & Community Builder
@estraschnov No, I'm in US now. Hope it works
Andrew MorozMaker@frostaloha · Aloha Mobile
@xiaoyaosama It should. If at some day it won't, let us know through the Feedback form and we'll make it work in no time.

I'll definitely try this. Any plans for OSX version ?
Andrew MorozMaker@frostaloha · Aloha Mobile
@csaba_kissi We thought about it, but cause we are small team, we can't do everything good at the same time. So probably we will concentrate on mobile devices only. May be there will be Chrome/Safari plugins later.
