Introduction to HoneyGain
HoneyGain caught my attention when I was randomly surfing the internet and found it on some random page. HoneyGain claims to pay you for using your internet and looks like the easiest way to earn some money.
I had my concerns about whether it’s a legitimate thing or just a scam like most other ’Earn money online’ scams’. I did some research on the internet, and the reviews were good, so I installed it on my PC and have been using it for the last few days.
Here is how my HoneyGain dashboard looks like
So for the last few hours, it has been working and it shows how much data it has used and how much money is it worth it?
I will keep updating this article with time and will update how much I could make in a month’s time.
What is HoneyGain?
HoneyGain The app facilitates proxy services to third parties, such as data scientists, Fortune 500, and other trustworthy companies.
Honeygain ensures that all your personal data is safe at all times.
Your internet traffic is used by trusted partners only, and the app itself does not gain access to your device’s storage and HoneyGain pays the user for it used data.
Is HoneyGain app safe?
HoneyGain has mentioned in its FAQ section that they do not keep any of the user’s data other than IP Address, Email, and selected payment methods.
Here is a screenshot from HoneyGain’s website:

When I first heard about HoneyGain it seemed a too good deal as you just need to install the app and it pays you for your data.
So as everyone has data security concerns so did I have my concerns about my data being used wrongly. So I read a lot about it on Reddit, Quora, and other forums, and whatever I read, indicated that the app is legit and there is nothing to worry about.
I have used it for the last few months and have not faced any such issue with it.
HoneyGain was launched in 2019 and since then a lot of Hackers and Engineers have been trying to find if there is something wrong with the app. But it seems that its a legitimate app and it has nothing much to hide.
So you can be sure that there are no security concerns with the app and give it a try.

Is HoneyGain legit?
I have been using HoneyGain for some time and there is one thing that I am very sure about Honeygain. That it is a legitimate company and will pay you for sharing your data.
You can check online reviews or do a google search about HoneyGain but it does not seem like a scan to me.
It has been reviewed by many users, and most agree that it pays.
Though I agree that amount is not that much as someone would be looking for if all we need to get is to install an app and let it run in the background, it’s a good deal
If you are looking for some extra cash and you have additional data which you were anyhow now going to use, you can give HoneyGain a try. You can earn 50$ a month, and although that’s not a significant amount, it can still pay for your broadband connection(if you are in a country where I am from, India). There is nothing bad with free money. right? 🙂
