One of the best VPN services to truly protect yourself and family while being online,especial while using a public wifi.

Average VPN, however, the trial is not a trial - it is meant to scam people into auto-renew subscriptions when the trial cannot be easily (or at all - waiting for support) ended.
DO NOT USE THIS SOFTWARE
as it intentionally misleads/scams people.

Fraudulent company -Stay away
I cancelled my while I was in the trial period however a few days later , they try to charge my card for the subscrption.
Also I asked them to delete my account and data but no one replied.
Never ever trust them with your card details. Better to report them to the authorities.

I installed on my Android phone and then I turned the hotspot shield VPN on and showed me that I only can get 30 minute usage, why they would not increase that to like 2 hours and watch an ad for 30 seconds and then get more hours, I AM NEVER INSTALLING THIS GARAGE EVER AGAIN, Stay away from hotspot shield, they old let you use 30 minutes per day

Somehow this software got on my new Dell Laptop, and then I ran into some browsing limit and all my internet access was blocked, but
I could have deblocked it by paying for a monthly plan.
I have now uninstalled it. Extremely bad experience, probably not
ethical business practice as well. AVOID !

I am disgusted with these people. The software worked for a week and then the auto update loaded 8.0.0 version and it failed to work. I have contacted them 3 times and still nothing! I was even in the 45 day window for a refund and they are avoiding dealing with me. They literally stole my money and are proud of their business practice. Shame on them.

Good app for streaming content. Use it to watch YT and Netflix while on vacation. Worked great.

Servers are a bit slow. But it works when its needed.

It looks great, but is pretty expensive as for a VPN. Still, it works.

Some people don't care about their Internet privacy. But I DO. and I don't want my personal info shared all over the web. So best thing to do is get a Good VPN like this one.
Review by JonathanDavies1 year ago
you cant delete your account,
there is no info on the website regarding this mater, and if contact them they say you don't have a premium account so they don't answer.
overall shady company.

hotspot leads you to believe that you can cancel your subscription at any time but if you want to cancel your credit card windows subscription I have yet to discover a way after a 3hr online search .

I dont know how good of a VPN it is, but its not free as promised on the website.

Good interface, smooth operation until their software would not work with certain versions of Windows 10.
Lies, denials, delaying tactics, unfulfilled promises for refund. Had to file complaint with the BBB tof receive partial refund requested months later. Dishonest Mr T K, Director of Customer Service, provided false information, removed my complaint from BBB record.
Avoid. Seek service from reputable companies.
Notice: BBB is funded by merchants. Customer reviews have no influence on BBB ratings. Only customer complaints filed and outcomes of such complaints count. Even so, if merchant satisfies a complaint, and most merchants do in order to avoid a bad rating, the complaint hardly counts against them. Further, many BBB offices will not publicize detailed statement of complaint - only statistics.
No wonder the vast majority of merchants, even those with numerous terrible reviews, have an A+ BBB rating.

For me, using the service from Chumphon, Thailand, is a joke. The speeds for any and all VPN locations is too slow to stream anything. Sure, if you want to read a text website, it would work. But since when are text websites using geolocation to block viewership? Since never. The real service is video streaming, and hotspotshield is just too slow to provide this.
I always know when Hotspotshield accidentally turns itself on, because none of my websites load. It's pathetic really. I paid for 1 year, and can't use this 'service'. I mainly wanted to use it to watch TV while abroad (abc.com etc)
It also does work ok with torrents, where the slowdown is not as noticeable, though I barely use torrents myself.
I have a great wired Internet, 50 Mbs download, 20 upload, and it is exactly that when I test my speed. Doing a speed test when hotspot shield is on is a joke (again), the speedtest reports way lower speeds than even shown on hotspotshield interface (which are dismal at best).
Don't buy it, unless all you need is to browse the web with no video/audio, or for torrenting.
Plus, if you get a yearly subscription you'll still be getting ads, namely their advertisements for a 'lifetime subscription'. Thanx, I'll pass.

How you could trust VPN provider which sells your activities to advertisers
Review by Erikli2 years ago
Slowed my computer and when I started up my pc it lead me to this ad which I did not want and had to remove it.
Review by Briany Strozynska2 years ago
I have been using Hotspot shield for around 4 years now but only recently upgraded to the Hotspot Shield Elite package that they offer. As somebody who often needs a reliable VPN service I can safely say you cant go wrong with them.
Review by Travia Clabbe2 years ago
pretty appalled at the news, but not particularly surprised. Free vpns are known for sharing user info.
Review by BBorrero2 years ago
This VPN is pretty often a pain if you are on a blocked network (ex. Fortiguard) it also blocks the VPN itself.
Also, turning off this VPN takes ages, since you cannot do so from your device settings, so you are forced to see an advertisement before turning off the VPN.
