Is Novitec Wifi Booster a Scam? See Review

Novitec Wifi Booster should not be trusted because it claims that internet service providers monitor peak times and reduce speeds, which may be true, but it claims this product will block internet service providers from monitoring this information, therefore, they won't know when to lower speeds which is just a ridiculous. There's no technology that will prevent your internet service provider from throttling your bandwidth.

The Novitec Wifi Booster

Novitec Wifi Booster

Novitec Wifi Booster claims it's Wifi4, or 802.11 N, which maxs out at 600mbps. But, on their product description page, it says "Boost your WiFi signal’s speed up to 1200 Mbps". When you go to the order page it tells the truth, "Up to 300Mbps on 2.4G".

Novitec Wifi Booster website has lots of similarities with a bunch of problematic sites like BuyRangeXTD, HOCWatch, Cardieo, TurboTuuli, BuyBlaux, Blaux, BuyOshenWatch, GetTVBuddy, FeverPatrol, etc. These sites have lots of complaints from their users.

It is a complete SCAM! I was dumb enough to buy 2 because they said that the more the better and then when you buy one and go to check out, a screen pops up and gives you a discount to buy one more for $34.99, then again yet another pop up to buy more even cheaper. I figured, well if they don’t work, they have (so they say) a hassle free 30 day money back guarantee so, nothing to worry about right…. wrong.. So they finally arrive about a week and half later, I tried them immediately, didn’t want to lose out on that 30 day money back guarantee in case they didn’t work. Well, you guessed it, they didn’t work. I plugged them in just like the instructions said, and checked the speed. It was only 14.88. My own internet speed is 49.54. Well, I said to myself, I’ll plug in the other one in and connect it and that should be good… nope.. Turns out you can only use one at a time, so what’s the sense in buying more than one? And they say that it extends to places that are a distance away from the router, well, that’s not true either. I went to the garage to try it and I didn’t get “any” signal at all.

Sooo, here’s the best part. After emailing them asking for my “Hassle Free” return, they try to give me a 10% discount to keep them.. I said no thank you. So, they email me back again and tell me this time they will give me a 30% discount if I keep them and I told them why would I keep something that doesn’t work. Soo, here it comes,,,, they say okay well, you have to pay to have them retuned. WHAT? What happened to Hassle Free money back guarantee? And to top it off, not only do “I” have to pay to return something that they know doesn’t work, I have to wait 30 days for it to be inspected to see if it was used. Because if it was used, you don’t get your money back. Wait, how are you supposed to know if something works if you don’t try it. Mind you this all was in a matter of 24 hours. So, “if” they approve the return, then you “might” get your money back but not until 45 days later. So now, I’m out all that money, and hopefully someday I’ll get my money back from something that doesn’t work.

It absolutely sucks! I've tried it! It cut everything in half as far as the speed! I returned it and will not purchase another of any kind. They're all lies and scams!

It won't even connect or get past part 3 for my mobile phone. I did get it to work on my laptop but it's actually slower than my regular internet through my internet provider by half. Although it talks about different channels working together will interfere signal & the network speed will get slow. It advises me to change the main router channel in time. I don't know how to do that, what that does, nor what to change it to.

As a cybersecurity engineer and 30 years background in IT with the US Army and now a defense contractor, I had to come and see if there was any truth to this device. I found your site as one of the reviews. If you know the basics of 802.11 and how frequency and wireless bandwidth work, you instantly start to ask questions about how can this thing work? I was interested in finding out, because I'm into this stuff, but basically all it is, is a frequency extender or booster, an amp. People often ask me, "I have 1Gb download to the house but, via fiber, but I can never get that speed." I ask them if all their devices are wireless, and try to explain to them the limitations of wireless, 802.11 and the tech behind it. You are correct, a little research on the basics of wireless communication, and the limitations of what tech is currently out there, would answer this question really fast.

Just have patience for 802.11ax or even 802.11be in the future, then wireless will improve, but until then, we're stuck with the unregulated spectrum between 2.4G and 5G and 802.11n or 802.11ac. Good post.

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
