Gamban Feedback

Hi, please point me in the right direction if this has been covered before. 
However, I wanted some feedback on Gamban and how you find it works?

I just installed the 7 day trial on my iphone and I noticed the VPN affected my internet speed - not sure if that was the Gamban profile or coincidence. 
How is it supposed to work? It still let me access any gambling website - I thought it restricted access?

I was also just able to delete the profile - is that because it was only a trial? 
It just didnt seem that good to me, so before I go for it and buy the software I would like some feedback. 

Maybe just Gamstop is good enough?

Thanks

I had no luck with gamban despite saying that my devices were compatible I couldn't install it. Atm gamstop is sufficient for me. If it comes to the crunch and I need something else like gamban I believe that there is a helpline / live chat and they apparently are very good at ironing out issues so I will go down that road. Read your posts Nomore sounds like you are making a strong commitment to becoming gamble free. Well done and I wish you all the best in your recovery

I had gamban on my devices for 6 weeks , i have a code for a year free ! But since having gamban it has definitely slowed the internet down and keep everything disconnecting almost every 5 mins ( literally ). So just sign up on gamstop and attend GA meetings plus here and inform your bank to block gambling transactions.

Hi neversurrender. If gamban does that to internet ref won't be using it lol. My 15yr old son would have a turn if his Xbox or PC was interupted. Think I'll stick with gamstop . I'm hoping that gamanon will set up face to face meetings again I'm actually looking forward to speaking to other recovering addicts in person.

Hi all,

Sorry some of you are experiencing problems with Gamban. We would echo Charlieboy's suggestion to anyone experiencing problems with any blocking software - contact their customer support to see if any issues can be ironed out. It would be a shame to leave yourself at risk when an email might just sort it out.

If you'd like to look at other blocking software apps, we do list five examples you can try on our website. Find out more here:

Best wishes,
