EarnApp is a site that claims you can earn passive income by sharing your unused internet bandwidth.
I am always on the lookout for ways to earn passively, plus a lot of people have been asking me if this site is really legit or if it is just a scam, so I decided to find out for myself and see what this site is all about.
I have personally tested it and I will share everything I have learned about it in this EarnApp review. That way, you can just read this review to find out if it is really worth using or not.
So, let’s go ahead and take a closer look at EarnApp, shall we?
What is EarnApp and what does it offer?
EarnApp is a website that will allow you to earn by installing their program and letting it run in the background of your device. And yes, it is indeed a legit site and it will really allow you to earn passively.
Now, the question is, is it worth it?
To answer this question, you must first understand how it works and the only way to do that is to first examine the earning opportunities it offers. So, here’s how you can earn from EarnApp.
1 – Sharing your unused internet bandwidth
The earning opportunity EarnApp is actually pretty similar to Honeygain. EarnApp’s program shares your unused internet bandwidth while it is running in the background.
After you register as a member, you will be asked to download the EarnApp software. As you can see in the photo above, the software will work with Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. It even has an Android app you can download (I will talk about the app later).
When you are done installing the program on your computer, it will now appear in the system tray (where the time and date usually appear). Simply click it and there is an option to link your account to the program.
This is the important part when setting up the program. Linking your account will allow you to start earning and it can be done in just a few seconds.
After you’ve linked your account, you can also enable the program to start when Windows starts (if you are using Windows). There is a similar option for Mac and Linux computers as well.
Now, how does the earning process work? Well, it’s relatively simple. You get paid for every gigabyte of data you are able to share using the program. The rate per gigabyte shared will depend on which country you live in.
I compared the rates to other similar platforms and what I found out was it was really pretty much the same. EarnApp’s gigabyte rate isn’t higher than other platforms that offer the same opportunity, but it also isn’t lower.
What you need to keep in mind is, that since the program will be sharing your unused bandwidth, there might be a slight difference in your internet speed when you are using it. But you won’t really notice it unless you are using programs that are heavily using your internet bandwidth (like downloading programs or playing games).
The good thing is, if you want full access to all your internet bandwidth, you can just pause the program so it won’t share your bandwidth and your connection will then not slow down. You can just turn it back on when you are not doing anything else.
Earning from this program is really that simple. You can do it at a click of a button, which is what makes it an appealing option, in my opinion.
2 – Referral program
Another way to earn from EarnApp is to invite other people to join the site through the referral program. All you have to do is share your invite link with the people you want to invite.
When the person clicks the link and signs up as a member, they will automatically become your referral. But, in order for you to earn, your referral must install the EarnApp software. In other words, they must also earn from it.
You will receive a 10% commission every time your referral shares their unused internet bandwidth. The commission will be shouldered by EarnApp and it will not be deducted from your referral’s earnings.
It’s a good way to earn passively as well. You just need to make sure you invite people who are really interested in earning from this site.
Plus, in order for you to earn from your referral, they must have a different IP address when the program is running. If you and your referral both share the same IP address, you will not earn anything.
How do you get paid?
For every gigabyte you share using EarnApp, you will earn a certain amount and it will show up in your EarnApp account balance, which you can easily see when you log in to the member dashboard of the site.
Then, you have the option to withdraw your earnings via PayPal or you can convert your earnings to an Amazon gift card. For PayPal withdrawals, you will only need to earn at least $2.5. It’s a very low threshold, so you won’t have to wait a very long time to withdraw your earnings.
However, for Amazon gift cards, you will need to earn at least $50 before you can redeem one. That is why I prefer PayPal as the mode of payment because you don’t have to wait a long time to withdraw your earnings.
You can also set up EarnApp to pay you automatically when you reach the payout threshold. You just have to select the mode of payment and EarnApp will process the redemption automatically every time you reach the threshold.
Overall, the payment system of EarnApp is relatively easy to understand. I also like the fact that it has a very low payout threshold for PayPal withdrawals.
How much money can you make?
The amount you can earn from EarnApp will depend on where you live and how often you let the program run in the background. As mentioned earlier, the rate for every gigabyte of data you share will depend on the country you live in.
The only thing you can control in terms of how much you can earn is how often you let the program run in the background. You also have to consider that your internet bandwidth is not always shared even though the program is running.
There will be times when no one wants to use your unused bandwidth, so don’t be surprised when that happens. That is why you need to be patient with this site. You won’t get rich from it, but the good thing is, it doesn’t really require any effort on your end to earn. That is the main appeal it offers.
If I were to rate the earning potential of EarnApp, I would say it isn’t that good. But since it requires no effort on your end, it can still be worth it, in my opinion. You just need to be very patient.
Can you use it on mobile?
As mentioned earlier, EarnApp has a mobile app you can download. However, the app only works for Android devices at the time of this writing. The iOS version of the app is currently in development, so you can expect to see it in the future.
One thing to note is, you will not find the app on the Google app store. The reason for this is, Google Play Protect currently detects the app as a malicious app. But as the site explains on its FAQ page, it is a false-positive detection.
The app is actually safe to use. You just can’t download it from the app store. You have to download and install it manually to your device through APK installation. EarnApp is still working with Google to get this detection ironed out.
The app may get removed from your phone by Google Play Protect. To avoid this from happening, you can enable the app from the Google Play Protect settings.
What does the app do? Well, it pretty much does the same thing as the software for computers. It will share your unused mobile internet bandwidth, so if you have an unlimited data plan, you can use it to fully maximize your plan and earn a few dollars. It’s not the most ideal way to earn, in my opinion, but at least, you can squeeze out a few dollars by using it.
Who can join EarnApp?
The great thing about EarnApp is, it is available globally. You will be able to sign up as a member regardless of where you live.
The registration process is also very simple. You just have to use your Google account to sign up. If you don’t have one yet, it’s relatively easy to create one.
After you use your Google account to sign up, you will now be logged in to the member dashboard and you will be asked to download the software. Simply follow the instructions when downloading the software.
Once you are done with the installation and you have linked your account, you can start earning right away.
Can you get support?
If you have any questions about the site or your account, you can check out the FAQ page first. It discusses most of the topics you need to know about the site.
If the FAQ page is of no help, you can just use the contact form which is also accessible from the FAQ page of the site to submit your inquiry. Just fill out the necessary fields and hit submit.
Overall, I would say the site has a decent support system in place for its members since it offers a convenient way for you to get in touch with their support team.
Pros And Cons
If you are looking for an easy way to earn some extra cash, I would say EarnApp is a decent option. Even though it doesn’t pay that high, it’s still a good option because you don’t really have to put in any effort to earn.
Once you’ve set up the program, you can just sit back and reap the rewards. You do have to set your expectations properly because this site will not make you rich. That being said, you can still earn a decent amount if you are very patient with it.
