Wow! I hope you know that Hotspot Shield is a lifesaver! Want to know why and how?
I was just researching online and trying to find the best solution for me. I went through many trial VPNs,
but couldn’t find one that worked for me. I started to follow the ratings and started from 1 and
suddenly stopped at 6 as hotspot shield, my life saver was there at #6.
In short, i installed Hotspot Shield VPN and was able to access facebook and youtube in less than 1
minute. I was surprised that I found a VPN that worked! Unlike the other VPNs I tried, Hotspot Shield
had unlimited bandwidth and the ability to choose 4 different virtual locations (US, UK, Australia, Japan).
I’m not sure why Hotspot Shield VPN was rated #6, but I’m pretty sure should be high compared to
others. It is generally a popular VPN as it allows you to secure your connection. Here are my pros and
Able to go on unrestricted US sites
Unlimited data transfer
In my opinion, Hotspot Shield is the #1 VPN for me & I’m spreading the word. Trust me you will be
As a traveling consulting, working across many continents, I can no longer survive without Hotspotshield... You would be surprised how many websites are either banned or heavily corrupted in many countries. Hotspotshield completely eliminates the effects of the geographic location I am in when using the internet and makes me feel like I'm at the comfort of my own home. Not having to worry about my computer getting bombarded with viruses and spam is also a great plus. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.
My identity was stolen while using a free wifi in a hotel lobby (I am almost certain that is where it happened).
I was also an idiot for having the same password and email for most of my logins. Within about 24 hours of using the free hot spot in the hotel, all of my passwords had been changed and all of my bank accounts had been accessed.
Fortunately, I got a call from my bank alerting me of suspicious activity and nothing was transferred. When I went to access my email via my phone, I realized I could not. I was surprised that my antivirus products did not already protect me on a public wifi and it was a tough lesson to learn.
Products like Hotspot Shield are a must for anyone working in a starbucks, an airport or hotel like me. It is super cheap per year and work ended up reimbursing me for the purchase (it was a work computer, but I accessed a personal account when I was hacked). I also had no idea how easy it was for people to access your computer from a shared hotspot/wifi. I have since been told by most IT guys it takes about a minute to gain remote access in a public wifi!
I started with the free version and later upgraded to the paid/elite version. I found that the elite version of hotspot shield lets me watch my amazon prime account while in Europe and Saudi Arabia.
I frequently travel and use Hotspot Shield to get access to US-only streaming web-content and news. Facebook occasionally depending if it's blocked or not. Highly recommend it!
Hotspot Shield is simply a must have app for travelers. Here are the reasons why I use Hotspot Shield when I travel:
1) It encrypts my Internet communications, thereby, protecting my privacy and preventing hackers from stealing my data when using public WiFi.
2) It enables me to unblock any website that is otherwise blocked by the local ISP.
3) It protects my device from malware websites
4) It compresses data so I save money on bandwidth cost for my iPhone device
There's a free version, but I don't like to see the ads. So I use the Elite version, which costs me only a few months a month.
Very easy to install and use, and now I am able to watch US TV shows in the UK. Hotspot Shield also provides peace of mind when connecting to public WiFi hot-spots as all traffic is encrypted and it blocks over 3.5 million malware websites before they can compromise your computer. Furthermore unlike other VPN services there are no bandwidth restrictions. Because of this I would definitely recommend Hotspot Shield.
My friends & I always use it when travelling internationally as well as at home. Typically with new products, as the user base grows there will be bumps in the road & I think they are addressing their troublespots.
I liked it because it's FREE. Then I found I can pay to access UK sites and remove the ads on top of the screen. Awesome choice!
If you don't mind ads and OK just US IPs, free may be good. Otherwise, it's good value to upgrade.
I've been looking around for a really good VPN that I don't have to spend money on. I found Hotspot Shield through a Google search and I can say I'm very pleased with it. There's a paid version that doesn't have ads and has extra malware protection, but the frugal person that I am...I think I'll stick to free :). Highly recommend this app to everyone
Hotspot Shield provides a secure connection and an IP address in one of their server locations. That's all you need to access content in America while abroad.
Sometimes, I need to reconnect a couple of times - would have given 5 stars otherwise.
I've been using Hotspot Shield for a little over a year now and never had a problem with it. I had initially subscribed to their service to get access to Netflix and Pandora since I frequently travel abroad. After I got the service, I found out that it also secures my connection at unsecured public WiFi networks, which was a bonus benefit for a frequent traveler as myself. The speeds are quite fast and I'm able to watch movies on Netflix without any slow down. It's probably the best VPN out there.
I've been using Hotspost Shield now for more than a month and it has been wonderful.
I feel secured browsing websites and making online purchases and payments now that I have Hotspot Shield installed in my laptopn and in my Android phone.
Hotspot Shield is easy to use, has a good free version, and a better paid version, and is really handy for both privacy and getting round regional restrictions (e.g. Hulu).
I've tried the program on both Mac OSX and Windows 7 & 8, and all three have had a great experience with the application. It's fast to run/load, and connects the VPN in a good time, with a good connection speed.
Well worth it!
I've been using Hotspot Shield for a couple of years now and it is probably one of my favorite programs on the PC. Not only does it make sure I browse the web securely, but it also unlocks websites that may otherwise have been blocked in my region. Sometimes ISPs block websites like YouTube but Hotspot Shield makes it easy to bypass this and access content on the website. Sometimes when I'm travelling the content I am used to having access to is also not available in the region, Hotspot Shield makes it easy to get access back.
The program is completely free too! Sure there are advertisements with the free version, but for as little as £3 a month, I can upgrade to the elite version and access it on all of my devices. Hotspot Shield on iOS also has a very neat feature that allows you to browse the web faster by compressing pages - which is perfect if you're on your mobile data plan! The support is great as well. Overall superb software, highly recommended.
I travel a ton and am always worried about getting hacked on those shady open WiFi spots around hotels and airports. Hotspot Shield puts my mind at ease so I don't have to stress over my credit card info and other important personal details being stolen off my computer.
I lived in England in the 90's and I am an Anglophile without a doubt. I was frustrated in my search for ways to watch UK tele and then I found Hotspotshield. Not only do I get to watch my favorite UK shows but I can do so at home or on the road. Knowing that while I am watching my favorite programs with my assigned UK IP address, I am also protected from the prying eyes of hackers who would happily help themselves to my data if I were on an unsecure network and did not have Hotspotshield protecting me!
Hotspot Shield has a number of fantastic features to help make online shopping and surfing safe including annoymous web surfing, the ability to hide your IP address, the ability to unblock websites while at work, private & secure browsing, and wifi security. As someone who likes to shop online it gives me peace of mind to know my information is safe when I'm buying items online. I also like that it offers malware protection so I don't have to worry as much about clicking links that might lead to malware.
I love Hotspot. It allows me to stay safe while using untrusted Wifi. I don't have to worry anymore about sending email or access social network accounts at coffee shops etc. It works great. I also use it on my phone in the same situations.
In today's 'online' world it is very important to stay safe. There are many ways that others will try and get your personal information. Malware, viruses, spoof emails, phishing websites and protecting yourself is essential. The use of a VPN such as Hotspot Shield is an effective way to do this and is very easy to install. Not only does it offer up protection, but also allows you to access blocked websites, which is very useful when travelling. I have found myself in situations where I want to access websites in the UK that are not available, now I can happily view them with no issues.
I have been using hotspot for 2 months now and I am more than happy. It's great having the VPN in USA I am able to know that my connection is safe & secure, and its a bonus I can watch all my American TV shows! I cant live without hotspot now!
