The best VPN for travelers

If you want to access the Internet securely no matter where you are in the world, this is the easiest VPN to use. Hotspot Shield makes me feel much better when I'm traveling in places that might monitor or censor the Internet and lets me keep up with my favorite shows and clips via sites like Hulu and Netflix. It's free version is great and premium (which I use personally) even better. I don't think any traveler should go anywhere without Hotspot Shield

Peace of mind!

With identity theft on the rise and the ability to access public WiFi becoming ever easier, it's more and more important to secure internet connections. Hotspot Shield is so easy to use, can be installed on virtually any device and gives me complete peace of mind that I'm maintaining a private and secure browsing experience. I've been using it for several months now on my phone and on my laptop when I travel. Airports and hotels are notorious for packet sniffers so I feel A LOT safer now using Hotspot Shield.

Definitely would recommend Hotspot Shield

Best thing out there, I feel much safer surfing the web than I used to, and can still access my favorite US content while traveling abroad thanks to Hotspot Shield.

Great product if you travel a lot

I go often abroad for work and with Hotspotshield I can access BBC videos also in the USA. Plus I have discovered it also protects me from malware! :) I would definitely recommend it.

'Hotspot Shield' the lifesaver!

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
cons:
Pros
Secure connection
Able to go on unrestricted US sites
Easy installation
Good streaming
Unlimited data transfer
Cons
Intrusive advertising
Slow surfing
In my opinion, Hotspot Shield is the #1 VPN for me & I’m spreading the word. Trust me you will be
shielded.

Complete access completely safe!

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.

Useful on the go

Hotspot Shield is a neat little piece of software that's transformed the way I see public WiFi networks. As an avid traveler, Hotspot Shield has saved me tons of money and made me feel secure while doing it. Great product!

better to be safe, than sorry

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.

Access any internet content you want, from anywhere. Censorship is old news.

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!

It's a must have app for travelers!

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.

Protects you and your computer

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.

Great product that suits my security needs & the company has potential to hit a Home Run in the market.

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.

great choice: free or premium!

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.

Thank you, thank you

Free VPN for privacy and security. Why pay when you can get it free? Of course you do have to watch some ads.

Best free VPN I've tried

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

Does what it should

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.

Protects you from hackers when using public WiFi

Most public WiFi is not that safe. This software, which is free BTW, creates a secure tunnel so nobody else can snoop on what you are doing or steal any of your data or PWs.
