I only have basic and it isn’t helping me in finding out what some things are on my router. I think I may have someone prying in my data somehow… intuition. I just need to know how to figure out what everything means and how to use technology.

by hardycr on 2021/06/18 14:59
The App Store description says that you can obtain Robo Shield, 1Password and Aura antivirus from the app with a premium subscription. This is not true. The app has no links to those products. I chatted with customer service about this and they couldn’t understand my question of how to get these products through the app. It was extremely frustrating and probably the worst customer service experience I’ve had.

by Comment est-ce que on dit non. on 2020/01/11 10:21
There are times when my lifetime “streaming” subscription ($$$) fails to work correctly after the connection has been logged by the app as active for many hours (>9). It has not actually been active as the device is in auto screen off mode with no known background processes occurring. This problem can be resolved by either reinitializing the connection, selecting a new server location. As my host WiFi connection is also sometimes at fault, troubleshot by reinitializing the connection), it becomes a guessing game as to how to manually resolve the issue. I think this app has improved significantly from its earlier days, and that I would be hard pressed to find a better one considering the intrinsic challenges. Depending on your perspective it could deserve 5 stars (relative performance) or 4 stars (absolute).
The BEST hotspot
by hotbisquiete on 2019/10/24 16:16
I’m more than happy that I have downloaded this app, and for the free features it has a lot to offer! It’s accurate and doesn’t have any major flaws, practically FLAWLESS. It stays connected and I haven’t had any issues with it. I’m in highschool and as many know it my school blocks data use which forces us to use the school WiFi for even the most basic actions we make on our phones, and of course the WiFi blocks social media or (mostly) anything else that may be a possible distraction in class. I needed social media to keep in contact day to day for more serious situations other than just texting people to text. I needed school information or other important things outside of school and I was desperate for a decent vpn which I went through so many before I found this one and I am nothing other than pleased. If I had the money on pocket all the time I would for sure get premium. One big thumbs up on this one. It’s a keeper👍
A constant battle while in China
by Jayni123 on 2018/01/12 23:44
The VPN worked fine at home in the US, but not while I actually needed it. In Shanghai and Qingdao I needed to use the VPN for accessing any websites, translator apps, etc. that I could normally from home. It took me at least 10 minutes to get it to work every time, closing and restarting the app, trying from different servers *if* it connected, and often being told I had no internet (with three full WiFi bars) or that they were diagnosing problems & to try again later... which still didn’t work after 24 hours. Overall I was lucky if it even worked at all, let alone for longer than 5 minutes. It would often drop me from my WiFi as it “connected”, repeatedly, and caused me to go back through the whole process mentioned above every five minutes (or less!) I had success with this VPN only twice for 30 minutes; but it was hell to get it there. To think I payed $13 for this kind of hassle. What a waste.
Happy I downloaded it.
by angelaljsutton on 2019/06/03 04:47
So I’m not the type of person to review much unless I’m buying it but I def have to for this app. I love it. I downloaded 7 or 8 hotspot apps that were rated good but also had good ratings. However every single app (except for this one) required a membership which I did NOT want to pay for. Although this app has a premium offer as well, it is not required like many of the other apps which was a huge necessity for me. I was a little skeptical at first when I used it but it actually works seamlessly, even without the membership! There is all sorts of country’s to chose from and it doesn’t slow you down at all. I’m happy to recommend this to anyone. And if you do subscribe to the premium you will get even faster speeds and all sorts of other features. Definitely the best hotspot app. Highly recommended!
Drops Connection
by Itsyaboydjteach on 2017/10/27 01:57
When it works this VPN barely hits my performance and I trust their payment model enough to believe they aren’t selling my data. That being said, the VPN itself is so unstable I wonder how much security I’m actually gaining. Two issues here: 1) The VPN randomly drops connection when online, and though it resets, I am obviously losing VPN status which I assume allows the sites I’m visiting to log my IP and activity while it’s down. 2) It’s hard to turn off. There are obviously circumstances where a VPN isn’t needed or desired, especially a free one. However, when I try to turn it off, this VPN often switches back on by itself and I cannot get it to remain off. In fact this is my second download. I deleted it the first time to see if that would fix the issue. However I see that I’m not the only one having that issue. Pro tip: don’t rely on this if you have something truly sensitive flowing over your traffic.
A few better options
by vannos question on 2019/11/09 08:07
This VPN is amazing, you can get passed many connections/wifi restrictions, However there’s one thing I would like for them to add. They’ve made it so that it impossible to connect the VPN to another country without paying, I’m no saying they should make it all for free, but let us have at least 3 countries. I use the VPN to bypass restrictions and other reasons, and I would obviously like to connect to other countries and such, so I think it’d be better if you at least have us 2 or 3 countries that we can connect the VPN to without paying. Besides that, everything else is amazing!
Used to be Good
by Hurricaneal3x on 2018/10/01 20:08
It’s trash now. It used to be simple, reliable, and more importantly versatile (able to be used everywhere) with stable connection. Now they added a fancy button that doesn’t turn off when you want it to. Now it’s connection randomly drops. Now I cant even use it at school anymore. It works for a little bit then it does this annoying thing where it says its connected, but when I go on any app it “freezes” Like there’s a little clock thing in the middle of the button and it works when on the app but it clearly stops when you go off of it. On top of that, it has these fits where it won’t connect at all. Customer Support is a no as well. I understand having special features for premium version but denying people customer service for the app as a whole and not just premium is a scummy thing to do. The app is trash now. The ONLY reason I keep this app is cause it’s pretty much the only one that semi-works. As soon as I find a better one you better believe this is getting deleted.
Please please Hotspot shield VPN developers please fix this serious problems with this app soon

Poor Connection Constantly
by 👍❤️😄 on 2019/05/13 17:35
This app is constantly disconnecting and slowing down my apps when I use it. My apps freeze all the time, even shutting down and I pretty much can’t use any app that requires internet connection when I try to have it on. I’ve been using it for quite awhile and it’s slowly been getting worse, to the point that my connection AT SCHOOL where I’ve always had trouble with connection and apps freezing is better than my connection with the VPN on. Honestly its more than of a bother that it is helpful. I saw good reviews when I downloaded it and for the most part it worked pretty well especially compared to other free VPN apps but once it added the premium feature the quality of regular VPN dropped so if you’re looking for a good free VPN this unfortunately isn’t it. It definitely was at one point but if you’re not paying for premium you might as well not even be using VPN because you’ll have a better chance at being able to use your apps.
Effortless simplicity
by leebee1100 on 2019/10/13 04:05
It just works. No drama. No noticeable additional latency (compared to not using a vpn at all) during use. No random disconnections or service interruptions of any kind. I am an extremely demanding, advanced user that puts my device and therefore it’s internet connectivity to the test on a regular basis and I can confidently say this is the best VPN I’ve ever used. It is rock solid with every day use and has not let me down for a single second during the last few months I’ve used it. I came from Speedify (and before that from Norton’s VPN service) and those were both a complete disaster reliability wise when compared to HotspotShield. I don’t know why I’m surprised but I am. If you want reliability and effortless setup/use, get this vpn. I’m serious, it’s the best.
I never write reviews but!!
by rakhelle on 2020/11/18 18:06
So I never write reviews at all. This is definitely going to be my first and last🤣 but seriously!! I had to write one for this app. So I’ve moved to a place with extremely slow WiFi, and the WiFi is unstable always turned off and on. I was searching for a vpn and I’ve heard about this but never tried it out, and let me tell y’all!!! When I use it my iPhone works 10 times faster , and WiFi doesn’t lag, and it’s not slow AT ALL anymore. I did not know that VPN can do this bc all the other vpn apps I’ve tried in the past has not worked like this AT ALL, other vpn apps made my WiFi slow. HONESTLY thank you so much I’m so happpyyyyy !!!🥰✨ and I %100 Recommend this vpn app
China 🇨🇳 and my concern for security.
by Omaralicea on 2019/03/30 01:18
On my trip to Beijing, China, I prepared a plan for the whole week and enjoy my holidays to the fullest, but I worry about safety in a different country with other customs, culture and laws totally different to what I may be used to, it was in that moment where insecurity took hold of me. In summary China 🇨🇳 is a country that controls the communication and information of its inhabitants and its visitors under strict laws. Here the questions begin; How do I protect my personal identity information? How do I protect the information I have stored on my phone? How do I protect the banking or government information that I may have stored on my phone or through an application installed on my cell phone? How do I prevent someone from accessing my diary, medical information or malicious intent to track down my location? Questions that we ask ourselves every day, but when you are in another country it is very dangerous. Use between 8 to 10 VPN applications to have the experience and without a doubt, HotspotShield was the only VPN that met my expectations 100%.
BAD Design!
by Justsayin1324 on 2018/04/19 03:06
What used to be a simple and fairly reliable app is now nothing but an annoying headache. THERE IS NO WAY TO TURN IT OFF, if for example the connection is slow and you’d rather just connect to the net without a VPN for speeds sake. Even if you turn the vpn button in the ipad setting to off, it will automatically TURN ITSELF BACK ON, without user permission. This has always been a problem but I use to consider it minor because one could delete the app and re-download it from the app store as needed. EXCEPT, now instead of giving the option of logging in after downloading it is ONLY set up to force you to subscribe—if you already have an account, resubscribe. Even if you ALREADY PAID for a multi-device plan through your computer. I got charged twice basically because the app designers are too stupid to give the user the option to turn the VPN ON and OFF at will!
I must thank all the diligent people from HotspotShield!

I am now in China, city of Beijing January 24, 2020 and am using HotspotShield app basic free plan to connect with success multiple times to google voice, google search engine, google account sign-in. If no VPN, all these connections failed in Beijing. I also tried some other free VPN apps most of which failed to establish connection to their servers, which probably are blocked by China’s great firewall. HotspotShield app connects with success and high degrees of consistency. Before coming to China, I did huge amount research for free VPN apps and their connectivities in China. The information places high regards to HotspotShield, which is proven by my experience now.

It’s a vpn. You have to pay for going to another sever like if you’re from the US, you wanna use Asain servers etc. But it comes with its quirkes. You DONT have to pay to use, you can just use it. There’s unlimited data, so don’t worry about that. And NO and I repeat NO ads. The only thing you have to worry about is Netflix. You can’t watch it. And the only thing you have to (if you want to) pay for is their server change. I think a great addition would be you trying to make Netflix compatible with your app. I love it but anytime I wanna watch Netflix I have turn the app off. Anyways I love the app! Nothing REALLY bad about it. Waiting for the updates!
Only nice with premium.

I am in high school, and the phone I have I earned my own money to purchase. My family doesn’t have lots of money and we don’t have any payment accounts set up on a credit card. I use this VPN to access the internet at school to check grades and get assignments, but it stopped working for me. I don’t click 7 day trial, just kept clicking the X. Now it’s not working all for me which is horrible. I can’t find a single other VPN that works for me , believe me I’ve tried, and the fact that I have to spend money to get this to work is sad. I need this to help my education and paying it isn’t an option.
If you value your time, DO NOT BUY Hotspot Shield VPN
by FN1234### on 2019/06/08 15:06
If you buy this app, be prepared for CONSTANT INTERRUPTIONS. Every other time you access the app (I’m talking 50% of the time you click it on) it will ask you to give them 5 stars, take a survey, etc, etc, etc. It’s not that great an app, they should spend more time on making it boot faster, better throughput, etc. But they choose to hire someone to solicit 5-star reviews. And there is NO WAY to opt out of it, either. I’ve asked the app developer to maybe cool it with all the interruptions, and basically got a form-letter saying “F.U. we know better and we will continue asking people for 5 star reviews over, and over, and over again”. So. I have a subscription and have already wasted my money. Since you’re reading this, I bet you’re contemplating a subscription. Please, I beg of you, DO NOT DO IT, you will regret it!!!
Awesome !!!
by tmtmike on 2019/06/23 13:44
I have been a hardcore user of VPNs over the years. The need for privacy on the internet in more than absolutely necessary as tracking and phishing is not bargained between various internet community elements. You simply have to look out for yourself so as not to lose vital personal information hence you get your identity stolen and your life falls into crisis. Here is a app that promises to keep you safe while you surf 🏄‍♀️ no matter how deep you choose to dive into the ocean Called “ internet “. Very good with the Tor network, with that you can be assured of 100% internet anonymity . Hotspot shield VPN is your true defender 💥
Cycling VPN connection prevents data connect
by Wuzhere2 on 2017/11/27 22:24
I have the paid subscription of Hotspot VPN. Sometimes when I transition between WiFi to cellular connection, the VPN starts cycling connect/disconnect. This prevents me from getting a data connection. In this situation, I could not get a GPS app /server connection when I really needed it, even though I had a strong cellular signal. After troubleshooting, I figured out it was the VPN, so was able to turn it off and connect. This happened again this past week. The only problem this time was that I was unable to turn Hotspot VPN off. Every time I tried to do this in settings, including “connect on demand”, it would come back on within a few seconds. I finally had to delete the app so I could connect to a server and use my GPS app.
Great service 5 - ⭐️’s
by Loganskyy on 2018/07/12 01:33
💁‍♂️ I love this app! My privacy and personal information is important to me. By using this service you can always have that piece of mind, that your dada is protected. With all the data miners, hackers, these days... these tools have become essential. I’d also like to add that there are numerous VPN apps on the market. But this one is by far the the best I’ve used. Also the interface is super easy to navigate, and runs smoothly. Customer service is always there to help and with a kindly manor. I would recommend this app to anyone for your VPN needs. Keep up the good work guys 👍👍
Does What A VPN Is Supposed To Do
by Totally Unique U53RN4M3 on 2019/11/19 16:07
If your looking for an easy way to get around simple WiFi blocks like schools, airports, and hotels. The virtual private network (VPN) helps you do just that. You just go into the app and literally press a button and *poof* unlocked, protected, free access WiFi! They do offer upgrades to have guaranteed access, but I’m not a avid user of the app. (If I was, I would totally consider it) So in summary, if you want to have access to “locked WiFi”, both freely and securely, get this VPN. And if you also want better advantages and if your an avid user of public internet get this VPN.
10/10
by GHOST 6441 on 2018/11/24 07:21
I’ve been using this app for over a year now and it’s been one of the only vpn apps where you don’t have to sit through a 5-10 second ad upon opening the app to either enable or disable the vpn. Connecting is always quick and the connection they provide has proven to be fast and reliable. I’ve downloaded a lot of VPN apps and this has been the best I’ve found. If you’re reading this I definitely would use this application versus a different vpn application. I hope this quick review helped you decide which vpn app to use.
Not bad but not great either
by VulpineAsp652 on 2018/01/18 15:15
Tbh this app was great when a first got it last year on my other phone but still had some bugs now it still works for me but it still gives me problems such as it not connecting or taking me off the WiFi but when things as such start happening I reinstall the profile and it works also I can only activate it via settings instead of the app itself otherwise it starts connecting on its own But all in all it’s the best vpn that I’ve found that’s actually free and doesn’t require a subscription (although it does offer a premium subscription) it doesn’t give me any ads except from time to time when a connect it via app
Take a close look at all the other reviews...
by KELLYMDFLA on 2018/11/20 20:29
Take time to read the reviews! Trust me! You’ll understand why they have a 4.5 rating! I downloaded this app thinking it would be helpful. Before I even really used it I just read a bunch of the reviews. I’m pretty sure most of the recent ones are fake. Usually that’s a sign that the developers are having issues and want to bump up their iTunes rating, or at least that’s what I understand. Because of that reason and that reason alone, you received a one star rating and I am deleting your app from my all of our iPhones and iPads immediately. If the developers or the people working for them are the ones behind the fake reviews I might suggest you take care of the issue immediately or other people will take notice, just like I did.
Solid, but stop the pop-ups for Premium users
by M0tl3y on 2017/12/01 16:09
I really do like this VPN, it’s a great protection since I use public WiFi quite often in the week and full-time when traveling. It works as advertised. The only complaint is the almost-daily pop-ups that you have to swipe away to get into the app to enable/disable the VPN connection. In some cases I’ve had to get past two pop-ups asking to rate the program which wastes time when you want to quickly enable the VPN. As a Premium paying customer this is an annoyance and needs to be avoided and make the process as quick as possible.
Great for IPhone!
by drak1970 on 2021/01/30 15:07
I’m in the UAE and they block all VOIP services essentially so you’ll pay to use their state run service. I originally used Express VPN because it was highly rated. Well it was awful, very difficult to establish and then maintain a connection and the calls sounded robotic and there were massive delays. Was able to download and install HotspotShield and man it’s great! Connects fast, calls are clear with out delays in speech and the call doesn’t drop. Thank you guys for developing this awesome app and the great service it provides! Get this app you won’t regret it!
As a FREE VPN it works just fine.
by Stryker295 on 2017/10/30 15:18
I've bounced between a handful of other VPN apps and frankly this is my favorite so far. I'm a free user, so I'm not getting ultra high premium speeds, but for making things work properly on my school network, it's just fine. I also super appreciate the way it shows how much data I've downloaded/uploaded each session; this seems to reset a lot when it's in the background but it's still nifty, and I haven't seen other apps that do this yet. Is it perfect? No, but it has a great free tier that has handled everything I've thrown at it, when other VPNs have failed it just keeps trucking.
It’s ok?
by Cheekyandon on 2018/07/31 02:56
I notice a lot of people are having trouble discounting from the VPN, there most likely are going though the settings app. You actually have to go in the app to then disconnect it. But I also noticed that sometimes when I do turn it off and then back on, it keeps saying that I’m on my data plan and even when it’s connected, it doesn’t pop up VPN next to my WiFi! Also during this it also keeps saying on my settings that my WiFi is connected, but it doesn’t pop up and it doesn’t work! But when the VPN does work, it pretty chill.
Terrible app don’t install unless you like struggling and useless apps
by obabyatriple on 2019/03/01 12:28
This app Is GARBAGE if I can rate it negative stars I would please don’t install this is soo bad you will spend 6 months trying to get it to work and it works for about 12 seconds and after that you have to spend another 17 years to try and find out how to make it work and then the same thing will happen again. If you even try playing games make sure your ready for it to crash in the middle of your game or when you need it the most and don’t even try doing anything actually important terrible experience never will download again unless they fix a trillion of the problems don’t install please it’ll be a waste of time and (if you buy the membership) money.
good but annoying
by floatinganchors on 2019/01/16 20:47
Everyone at my school has been using Hotspot VPN since Freshman year, and at first I didn’t understand the hype. A week ago, I downloaded it and finally understood the buzz. It allowed fast and easy connection, and I could access certain apps that I couldn’t before in school. But, not even a whole 24 hours after using it, it started acting crazy. It starts randomly connecting and disconnecting and it’s really annoying to have to open the app just to connect again, only to have it disconnect five seconds later. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good app, but the disconnecting thing is definitely a problem.
Great just one thing...
by 20 A concerned customer on 2018/10/18 12:44
Overall the VPN service is very good but I find it turning on when I don't need it. There is is a option in settings called connect on demand. I turn this off but for some reason is won't turn it off the app still auto connects. This gets very annoying because the wifi connection while using the app isn't as good as the wifi at my house when I don't need it. Overall it works with any application allowing you to view almost anything or use any application.
Great. Easy. Super fast. 5 stars for sure
by Crawdad138 on 2020/10/22 01:31
I have had this for a few weeks and it’s been fantastic. I’ve used several other big name VPN’s and I’ve found that this one is one of the easiest to use, it’s also definitely been the most reliable, and it’s without a doubt the fastest. I’ve been connected for days at a time and never once been disconnected. It has a lot of different server location options as well as different bandwidth usage options. Definitely a well deserved 5 stars.
Great VPN, fast speeds and secure
by MandoCommandoX on 2021/04/05 17:42
I’ve been using hotspot shield for over 6 months and it’s been one of the best VPNS I’ve tried. Others tended to lose connection or keep switching on/off but hotspot stays on for as long as you want it. I purchased the premium subscription and although a bit pricy ($13 a month) it’s worth it and good for needing a secure stable browsing experience in public locations. It also offers many virtual locations in various countries so you can use it in conjunction with streaming services like Netflix or Disney+ and and others. Good VPN overall!
You will get copyright infringements. App doesn’t work!
by Vito 2001 on 2018/04/27 05:16
I have the paid version of this app. Hotspot Shield did not even bother to reply to my emails until I threatened to write a bad review. So this review will be truthful. I got 5 copyright infringements while using hotspot Shield. When I told hotspot Shield their app doesn’t work and I want my money back, they said it’s been passed the 45 days and they cannot refund me and that their app isn’t meant to download copyrighted movies. If the app can’t protect against downloading a movie how is it going to keep your financial information or emails secure? Bottom line the app doesn’t work, they won’t respond to you unless you threaten them and they won’t refund your money. If I could give zero stars I would
I love this program but it has some problems
by Stelhed on 2018/05/14 12:51
It has been a wonderful experience for me having this program and being able to use it on multiple platforms. I have bought premium and I really appreciate how effective it is. But outside of premium it seems to not work at all. For anyone that plans on using this vpn during school or somewhere with restricted internet this is a must have. However if you are unable to buy premium you wont get good service and stuff. I give a 7/10
I love it!
by Kaesar Rayne on 2018/09/24 02:54
I went with this company because they have a lifetime subscription. It turns out it’s only about 50 years. But worst comes to worst I’ll buy the subscription again. It does not work with Adblock on the iPhone. I believe it does on the computer. I haven’t run into any problems it’s pretty solid for whatever platform you’re running this on. Also you can cover multiple devices (5) in one account. I also have peace of mind with this app. That’s worth the subscription cost.
Purchasing
by TurtleGTV on 2019/12/25 03:36
Had this app for 2 years and it worked tremendously and then all the sudden a popup telling me I have to sign in with a premium account or “start my 7 day free trial” comes up for no reason with no way of closing. If i sign into an account it just throws me right back onto the screen and locks me out of using the Vpn, super disappointing because this worked great UPDATE: ignore everything I said except for the positive stuff, i’m an idiot and couldn’t find the “continue as free user” button.

Nice interface, but cannot connect often
by Alan Raterink on 2017/12/23 21:29
I do like this app, and it has a nice user interface, but it really needs some reworking in terms of connectivity, because I cannot use this app in about half of the places I visit after using it for a few weeks. I don't know if this uses a different type of protocol, but other apps like VPN 360 connect pretty much no matter what, so I don't know what's causing the difference in usability. Additionally, if you leave a WiFi field and try to connect to another one, the app will prevent you from joining any other network until you uninstall the VPN profile.
Used to work fine, but now it’s not
by That_G3_Obsessive on 2019/01/23 20:46
When I first got the vpn it worked just fine, fast connection, reliable, etc. However, in these last few months it’s gotten worse and worse. The connection is now very slow. It takes about 5-10 minutes to load one webpage. It also keeps taking time to load, meaning it stops working for a few seconds before turning back on, then it does it again, etc. The little vpn icon at the top keeps flickering. Because of this websites will just stop loading halfway though, which means another 5-10 minutes of waiting. I’m highly considering switching vpns if this keeps up.
Where R U?
by Our Papa Joe on 2018/02/16 17:27
Well, with Hotspot U R always in the Right Spot because it is YOUR choice, free version is good but for a few pennies more you get to B where U want 2B & that is not the question but a choice! This is my second time writing a review and using my most, “Valuable Resource,” which is my time, as we all, yes all, only have the next moment of time. Remember, “Everyday is a Gift,” so why not use that gift privately when you are on-line and keep your time as your time and only your time with, Anchor HotSpot Shield!
Requires 2 IAPs for full speed.
by DJ Rizzo on 2017/10/21 17:41
I was looking for a replacement for VPN unlimited which has become practically unusable for me on multiple platforms. I liked that this app allowed for simple set up and quick connectivity. Also, I like that this company owns and operates all of their servers. So I decided to try the premium subscription but was disappointed to find out I had to pay even more for full speed. If the normal subscription price was more competitive I would not be bothered by that. However the base subscription price is already higher than other services so I decided to cancel the subscription and continue trying other services.
Awful👎
by AimTops on 2020/05/29 01:13
Why would I have to pay for a VPN? There are better VPN’s in the world that are for free. Just because this is faster and has more countries, doesn’t mean it’s better. Now I have to pay for Netflix and this! And I bet I will forget about this later in time. So what’s the point? And also, there’s a basic option, but it can only connect to 2 COUNTRIES! 2 COUNTRIES! That’s disappointing, I can’t even use this. This is awful. Pls make it so you can have atleast 20 free locations. Cause the basic is nothing. And one more thing, why do I need a account? What’s the point? I’m just connecting to a country. I hate this so much, pls fix this, cause this is 2 stars for now.

Got charged for for free trial
by Redbloodedwoman on 2020/11/30 03:53
I got charged for a free trial and I wasn’t even aware that the app wasn’t going to work for me either. Downloaded the app today just to see if it worked and it didn’t and I deleted the app today as well and still got charged 16 bucks. Have nothing against the app, just didn’t like that I got charged right away. Would’ve liked to see if it works for me first and then make that decision if I want to buy and stay with it. Refund please?
Literally in love with VPN
by ehines2007 on 2019/03/22 22:09
I thought this app was going to be a fake thing where you have to purchase all this dumb crap but you don't! I'm so happy with this! So basically you can connect with VPN whenever you feel like it through the app! And it again immediately shows up in your settings once you download it and get started. It's so simple and I use it all the time for my friends who have iPods and everything. Obsessed❤️ I highly recommend this. GET IT NOW
Really good for school
by Arandomplayerofthisgame on 2020/10/21 18:15
It works really well for school networks and to bypass the firewall, just one add before activation seems like a fair trade off for being able to play games at school, sometimes disconnects when you turn off your phone while connected to a protected network like a school network but you can just reactivate it. Overall good vpn for school premium might be worth it but I don’t have the money right now to buy it so can’t say.
No doubt
by Buddysbase on 2021/04/29 14:21
Since installing the app Ive enjoyed the privacy and protection it offers me in public places, on the road and at work! Funny story! I had forgot I set my VPN to Ukraine and had logged into my bank account. I got a call not long after from customer service about some malicious activity on my account from another country... well needless to say I had to explain my proxy and that I would not set it to a foreign country! I enjoy the privacy Hot Spot Shield gives me. I feel assured my texts and conversations are secured!!! Thanks HSS!!!
Appreciation for your efforts
by El.Zi on 2021/02/22 17:37
Thank you very much for making this VPN, I have been working with this VPN for many years and I am very satisfied with it, because it has always started Carmeno and solved my problem, and when I bought the account, it works great with high speed and power. It provides service and it does not bother, it does not interrupt or slow down, even when I use it for free, it works very, very well and provides the best service.

I only have basic and it isn’t helping me in finding out what some things are on my router. I think I may have someone prying in my data somehow… intuition. I just need to know how to figure out what everything means and how to use technology.

by hardycr on 2021/06/18 14:59
The App Store description says that you can obtain Robo Shield, 1Password and Aura antivirus from the app with a premium subscription. This is not true. The app has no links to those products. I chatted with customer service about this and they couldn’t understand my question of how to get these products through the app. It was extremely frustrating and probably the worst customer service experience I’ve had.

There are times when my lifetime “streaming” subscription ($$$) fails to work correctly after the connection has been logged by the app as active for many hours (>9). It has not actually been active as the device is in auto screen off mode with no known background processes occurring. This problem can be resolved by either reinitializing the connection, selecting a new server location. As my host WiFi connection is also sometimes at fault, troubleshot by reinitializing the connection), it becomes a guessing game as to how to manually resolve the issue. I think this app has improved significantly from its earlier days, and that I would be hard pressed to find a better one considering the intrinsic challenges. Depending on your perspective it could deserve 5 stars (relative performance) or 4 stars (absolute).
The BEST hotspot
by hotbisquiete on 2019/10/24 16:16
I’m more than happy that I have downloaded this app, and for the free features it has a lot to offer! It’s accurate and doesn’t have any major flaws, practically FLAWLESS. It stays connected and I haven’t had any issues with it. I’m in highschool and as many know it my school blocks data use which forces us to use the school WiFi for even the most basic actions we make on our phones, and of course the WiFi blocks social media or (mostly) anything else that may be a possible distraction in class. I needed social media to keep in contact day to day for more serious situations other than just texting people to text. I needed school information or other important things outside of school and I was desperate for a decent vpn which I went through so many before I found this one and I am nothing other than pleased. If I had the money on pocket all the time I would for sure get premium. One big thumbs up on this one. It’s a keeper👍
A constant battle while in China
by Jayni123 on 2018/01/12 23:44
The VPN worked fine at home in the US, but not while I actually needed it. In Shanghai and Qingdao I needed to use the VPN for accessing any websites, translator apps, etc. that I could normally from home. It took me at least 10 minutes to get it to work every time, closing and restarting the app, trying from different servers *if* it connected, and often being told I had no internet (with three full WiFi bars) or that they were diagnosing problems & to try again later... which still didn’t work after 24 hours. Overall I was lucky if it even worked at all, let alone for longer than 5 minutes. It would often drop me from my WiFi as it “connected”, repeatedly, and caused me to go back through the whole process mentioned above every five minutes (or less!) I had success with this VPN only twice for 30 minutes; but it was hell to get it there. To think I payed $13 for this kind of hassle. What a waste.
Happy I downloaded it.
by angelaljsutton on 2019/06/03 04:47
So I’m not the type of person to review much unless I’m buying it but I def have to for this app. I love it. I downloaded 7 or 8 hotspot apps that were rated good but also had good ratings. However every single app (except for this one) required a membership which I did NOT want to pay for. Although this app has a premium offer as well, it is not required like many of the other apps which was a huge necessity for me. I was a little skeptical at first when I used it but it actually works seamlessly, even without the membership! There is all sorts of country’s to chose from and it doesn’t slow you down at all. I’m happy to recommend this to anyone. And if you do subscribe to the premium you will get even faster speeds and all sorts of other features. Definitely the best hotspot app. Highly recommended!
Drops Connection
by Itsyaboydjteach on 2017/10/27 01:57
When it works this VPN barely hits my performance and I trust their payment model enough to believe they aren’t selling my data. That being said, the VPN itself is so unstable I wonder how much security I’m actually gaining. Two issues here: 1) The VPN randomly drops connection when online, and though it resets, I am obviously losing VPN status which I assume allows the sites I’m visiting to log my IP and activity while it’s down. 2) It’s hard to turn off. There are obviously circumstances where a VPN isn’t needed or desired, especially a free one. However, when I try to turn it off, this VPN often switches back on by itself and I cannot get it to remain off. In fact this is my second download. I deleted it the first time to see if that would fix the issue. However I see that I’m not the only one having that issue. Pro tip: don’t rely on this if you have something truly sensitive flowing over your traffic.
A few better options
by vannos question on 2019/11/09 08:07
This VPN is amazing, you can get passed many connections/wifi restrictions, However there’s one thing I would like for them to add. They’ve made it so that it impossible to connect the VPN to another country without paying, I’m no saying they should make it all for free, but let us have at least 3 countries. I use the VPN to bypass restrictions and other reasons, and I would obviously like to connect to other countries and such, so I think it’d be better if you at least have us 2 or 3 countries that we can connect the VPN to without paying. Besides that, everything else is amazing!
Used to be Good
by Hurricaneal3x on 2018/10/01 20:08
It’s trash now. It used to be simple, reliable, and more importantly versatile (able to be used everywhere) with stable connection. Now they added a fancy button that doesn’t turn off when you want it to. Now it’s connection randomly drops. Now I cant even use it at school anymore. It works for a little bit then it does this annoying thing where it says its connected, but when I go on any app it “freezes” Like there’s a little clock thing in the middle of the button and it works when on the app but it clearly stops when you go off of it. On top of that, it has these fits where it won’t connect at all. Customer Support is a no as well. I understand having special features for premium version but denying people customer service for the app as a whole and not just premium is a scummy thing to do. The app is trash now. The ONLY reason I keep this app is cause it’s pretty much the only one that semi-works. As soon as I find a better one you better believe this is getting deleted.

Poor Connection Constantly
by 👍❤️😄 on 2019/05/13 17:35
This app is constantly disconnecting and slowing down my apps when I use it. My apps freeze all the time, even shutting down and I pretty much can’t use any app that requires internet connection when I try to have it on. I’ve been using it for quite awhile and it’s slowly been getting worse, to the point that my connection AT SCHOOL where I’ve always had trouble with connection and apps freezing is better than my connection with the VPN on. Honestly its more than of a bother that it is helpful. I saw good reviews when I downloaded it and for the most part it worked pretty well especially compared to other free VPN apps but once it added the premium feature the quality of regular VPN dropped so if you’re looking for a good free VPN this unfortunately isn’t it. It definitely was at one point but if you’re not paying for premium you might as well not even be using VPN because you’ll have a better chance at being able to use your apps.
Effortless simplicity
by leebee1100 on 2019/10/13 04:05
It just works. No drama. No noticeable additional latency (compared to not using a vpn at all) during use. No random disconnections or service interruptions of any kind. I am an extremely demanding, advanced user that puts my device and therefore it’s internet connectivity to the test on a regular basis and I can confidently say this is the best VPN I’ve ever used. It is rock solid with every day use and has not let me down for a single second during the last few months I’ve used it. I came from Speedify (and before that from Norton’s VPN service) and those were both a complete disaster reliability wise when compared to HotspotShield. I don’t know why I’m surprised but I am. If you want reliability and effortless setup/use, get this vpn. I’m serious, it’s the best.
I never write reviews but!!
by rakhelle on 2020/11/18 18:06
So I never write reviews at all. This is definitely going to be my first and last🤣 but seriously!! I had to write one for this app. So I’ve moved to a place with extremely slow WiFi, and the WiFi is unstable always turned off and on. I was searching for a vpn and I’ve heard about this but never tried it out, and let me tell y’all!!! When I use it my iPhone works 10 times faster , and WiFi doesn’t lag, and it’s not slow AT ALL anymore. I did not know that VPN can do this bc all the other vpn apps I’ve tried in the past has not worked like this AT ALL, other vpn apps made my WiFi slow. HONESTLY thank you so much I’m so happpyyyyy !!!🥰✨ and I %100 Recommend this vpn app
China 🇨🇳 and my concern for security.
by Omaralicea on 2019/03/30 01:18
On my trip to Beijing, China, I prepared a plan for the whole week and enjoy my holidays to the fullest, but I worry about safety in a different country with other customs, culture and laws totally different to what I may be used to, it was in that moment where insecurity took hold of me. In summary China 🇨🇳 is a country that controls the communication and information of its inhabitants and its visitors under strict laws. Here the questions begin; How do I protect my personal identity information? How do I protect the information I have stored on my phone? How do I protect the banking or government information that I may have stored on my phone or through an application installed on my cell phone? How do I prevent someone from accessing my diary, medical information or malicious intent to track down my location? Questions that we ask ourselves every day, but when you are in another country it is very dangerous. Use between 8 to 10 VPN applications to have the experience and without a doubt, HotspotShield was the only VPN that met my expectations 100%.
BAD Design!
by Justsayin1324 on 2018/04/19 03:06
What used to be a simple and fairly reliable app is now nothing but an annoying headache. THERE IS NO WAY TO TURN IT OFF, if for example the connection is slow and you’d rather just connect to the net without a VPN for speeds sake. Even if you turn the vpn button in the ipad setting to off, it will automatically TURN ITSELF BACK ON, without user permission. This has always been a problem but I use to consider it minor because one could delete the app and re-download it from the app store as needed. EXCEPT, now instead of giving the option of logging in after downloading it is ONLY set up to force you to subscribe—if you already have an account, resubscribe. Even if you ALREADY PAID for a multi-device plan through your computer. I got charged twice basically because the app designers are too stupid to give the user the option to turn the VPN ON and OFF at will!
I must thank all the diligent people from HotspotShield!
by 2020happyuser on 2020/01/25 06:22
I am now in China, city of Beijing January 24, 2020 and am using HotspotShield app basic free plan to connect with success multiple times to google voice, google search engine, google account sign-in. If no VPN, all these connections failed in Beijing. I also tried some other free VPN apps most of which failed to establish connection to their servers, which probably are blocked by China’s great firewall. HotspotShield app connects with success and high degrees of consistency. Before coming to China, I did huge amount research for free VPN apps and their connectivities in China. The information places high regards to HotspotShield, which is proven by my experience now.
Happy
by snafuzz on 2019/07/26 21:22
It’s a vpn. You have to pay for going to another sever like if you’re from the US, you wanna use Asain servers etc. But it comes with its quirkes. You DONT have to pay to use, you can just use it. There’s unlimited data, so don’t worry about that. And NO and I repeat NO ads. The only thing you have to worry about is Netflix. You can’t watch it. And the only thing you have to (if you want to) pay for is their server change. I think a great addition would be you trying to make Netflix compatible with your app. I love it but anytime I wanna watch Netflix I have turn the app off. Anyways I love the app! Nothing REALLY bad about it. Waiting for the updates!
Only nice with premium.
by Emily Student on 2018/10/05 15:59
I am in high school, and the phone I have I earned my own money to purchase. My family doesn’t have lots of money and we don’t have any payment accounts set up on a credit card. I use this VPN to access the internet at school to check grades and get assignments, but it stopped working for me. I don’t click 7 day trial, just kept clicking the X. Now it’s not working all for me which is horrible. I can’t find a single other VPN that works for me , believe me I’ve tried, and the fact that I have to spend money to get this to work is sad. I need this to help my education and paying it isn’t an option.
If you value your time, DO NOT BUY Hotspot Shield VPN
by FN1234### on 2019/06/08 15:06
If you buy this app, be prepared for CONSTANT INTERRUPTIONS. Every other time you access the app (I’m talking 50% of the time you click it on) it will ask you to give them 5 stars, take a survey, etc, etc, etc. It’s not that great an app, they should spend more time on making it boot faster, better throughput, etc. But they choose to hire someone to solicit 5-star reviews. And there is NO WAY to opt out of it, either. I’ve asked the app developer to maybe cool it with all the interruptions, and basically got a form-letter saying “F.U. we know better and we will continue asking people for 5 star reviews over, and over, and over again”. So. I have a subscription and have already wasted my money. Since you’re reading this, I bet you’re contemplating a subscription. Please, I beg of you, DO NOT DO IT, you will regret it!!!
Awesome !!!
by tmtmike on 2019/06/23 13:44
I have been a hardcore user of VPNs over the years. The need for privacy on the internet in more than absolutely necessary as tracking and phishing is not bargained between various internet community elements. You simply have to look out for yourself so as not to lose vital personal information hence you get your identity stolen and your life falls into crisis. Here is a app that promises to keep you safe while you surf 🏄‍♀️ no matter how deep you choose to dive into the ocean Called “ internet “. Very good with the Tor network, with that you can be assured of 100% internet anonymity . Hotspot shield VPN is your true defender 💥
Cycling VPN connection prevents data connect
by Wuzhere2 on 2017/11/27 22:24
I have the paid subscription of Hotspot VPN. Sometimes when I transition between WiFi to cellular connection, the VPN starts cycling connect/disconnect. This prevents me from getting a data connection. In this situation, I could not get a GPS app /server connection when I really needed it, even though I had a strong cellular signal. After troubleshooting, I figured out it was the VPN, so was able to turn it off and connect. This happened again this past week. The only problem this time was that I was unable to turn Hotspot VPN off. Every time I tried to do this in settings, including “connect on demand”, it would come back on within a few seconds. I finally had to delete the app so I could connect to a server and use my GPS app.
Great service 5 - ⭐️’s
by Loganskyy on 2018/07/12 01:33
💁‍♂️ I love this app! My privacy and personal information is important to me. By using this service you can always have that piece of mind, that your dada is protected. With all the data miners, hackers, these days... these tools have become essential. I’d also like to add that there are numerous VPN apps on the market. But this one is by far the the best I’ve used. Also the interface is super easy to navigate, and runs smoothly. Customer service is always there to help and with a kindly manor. I would recommend this app to anyone for your VPN needs. Keep up the good work guys 👍👍
Does What A VPN Is Supposed To Do

If your looking for an easy way to get around simple WiFi blocks like schools, airports, and hotels. The virtual private network (VPN) helps you do just that. You just go into the app and literally press a button and *poof* unlocked, protected, free access WiFi! They do offer upgrades to have guaranteed access, but I’m not a avid user of the app. (If I was, I would totally consider it) So in summary, if you want to have access to “locked WiFi”, both freely and securely, get this VPN. And if you also want better advantages and if your an avid user of public internet get this VPN.
10/10
by GHOST 6441 on 2018/11/24 07:21
I’ve been using this app for over a year now and it’s been one of the only vpn apps where you don’t have to sit through a 5-10 second ad upon opening the app to either enable or disable the vpn. Connecting is always quick and the connection they provide has proven to be fast and reliable. I’ve downloaded a lot of VPN apps and this has been the best I’ve found. If you’re reading this I definitely would use this application versus a different vpn application. I hope this quick review helped you decide which vpn app to use.
Not bad but not great either
by VulpineAsp652 on 2018/01/18 15:15
Tbh this app was great when a first got it last year on my other phone but still had some bugs now it still works for me but it still gives me problems such as it not connecting or taking me off the WiFi but when things as such start happening I reinstall the profile and it works also I can only activate it via settings instead of the app itself otherwise it starts connecting on its own But all in all it’s the best vpn that I’ve found that’s actually free and doesn’t require a subscription (although it does offer a premium subscription) it doesn’t give me any ads except from time to time when a connect it via app
Take a close look at all the other reviews...
by KELLYMDFLA on 2018/11/20 20:29
Take time to read the reviews! Trust me! You’ll understand why they have a 4.5 rating! I downloaded this app thinking it would be helpful. Before I even really used it I just read a bunch of the reviews. I’m pretty sure most of the recent ones are fake. Usually that’s a sign that the developers are having issues and want to bump up their iTunes rating, or at least that’s what I understand. Because of that reason and that reason alone, you received a one star rating and I am deleting your app from my all of our iPhones and iPads immediately. If the developers or the people working for them are the ones behind the fake reviews I might suggest you take care of the issue immediately or other people will take notice, just like I did.
Solid, but stop the pop-ups for Premium users
by M0tl3y on 2017/12/01 16:09
I really do like this VPN, it’s a great protection since I use public WiFi quite often in the week and full-time when traveling. It works as advertised. The only complaint is the almost-daily pop-ups that you have to swipe away to get into the app to enable/disable the VPN connection. In some cases I’ve had to get past two pop-ups asking to rate the program which wastes time when you want to quickly enable the VPN. As a Premium paying customer this is an annoyance and needs to be avoided and make the process as quick as possible.
Great for IPhone!
by drak1970 on 2021/01/30 15:07
I’m in the UAE and they block all VOIP services essentially so you’ll pay to use their state run service. I originally used Express VPN because it was highly rated. Well it was awful, very difficult to establish and then maintain a connection and the calls sounded robotic and there were massive delays. Was able to download and install HotspotShield and man it’s great! Connects fast, calls are clear with out delays in speech and the call doesn’t drop. Thank you guys for developing this awesome app and the great service it provides! Get this app you won’t regret it!
As a FREE VPN it works just fine.
by Stryker295 on 2017/10/30 15:18
I've bounced between a handful of other VPN apps and frankly this is my favorite so far. I'm a free user, so I'm not getting ultra high premium speeds, but for making things work properly on my school network, it's just fine. I also super appreciate the way it shows how much data I've downloaded/uploaded each session; this seems to reset a lot when it's in the background but it's still nifty, and I haven't seen other apps that do this yet. Is it perfect? No, but it has a great free tier that has handled everything I've thrown at it, when other VPNs have failed it just keeps trucking.
It’s ok?
by Cheekyandon on 2018/07/31 02:56
I notice a lot of people are having trouble discounting from the VPN, there most likely are going though the settings app. You actually have to go in the app to then disconnect it. But I also noticed that sometimes when I do turn it off and then back on, it keeps saying that I’m on my data plan and even when it’s connected, it doesn’t pop up VPN next to my WiFi! Also during this it also keeps saying on my settings that my WiFi is connected, but it doesn’t pop up and it doesn’t work! But when the VPN does work, it pretty chill.
Terrible app don’t install unless you like struggling and useless apps
by obabyatriple on 2019/03/01 12:28
This app Is GARBAGE if I can rate it negative stars I would please don’t install this is soo bad you will spend 6 months trying to get it to work and it works for about 12 seconds and after that you have to spend another 17 years to try and find out how to make it work and then the same thing will happen again. If you even try playing games make sure your ready for it to crash in the middle of your game or when you need it the most and don’t even try doing anything actually important terrible experience never will download again unless they fix a trillion of the problems don’t install please it’ll be a waste of time and (if you buy the membership) money.
good but annoying
by floatinganchors on 2019/01/16 20:47
Everyone at my school has been using Hotspot VPN since Freshman year, and at first I didn’t understand the hype. A week ago, I downloaded it and finally understood the buzz. It allowed fast and easy connection, and I could access certain apps that I couldn’t before in school. But, not even a whole 24 hours after using it, it started acting crazy. It starts randomly connecting and disconnecting and it’s really annoying to have to open the app just to connect again, only to have it disconnect five seconds later. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good app, but the disconnecting thing is definitely a problem.
Great just one thing...
by 20 A concerned customer on 2018/10/18 12:44
Overall the VPN service is very good but I find it turning on when I don't need it. There is is a option in settings called connect on demand. I turn this off but for some reason is won't turn it off the app still auto connects. This gets very annoying because the wifi connection while using the app isn't as good as the wifi at my house when I don't need it. Overall it works with any application allowing you to view almost anything or use any application.
Great. Easy. Super fast. 5 stars for sure
by Crawdad138 on 2020/10/22 01:31
I have had this for a few weeks and it’s been fantastic. I’ve used several other big name VPN’s and I’ve found that this one is one of the easiest to use, it’s also definitely been the most reliable, and it’s without a doubt the fastest. I’ve been connected for days at a time and never once been disconnected. It has a lot of different server location options as well as different bandwidth usage options. Definitely a well deserved 5 stars.
Great VPN, fast speeds and secure
by MandoCommandoX on 2021/04/05 17:42
I’ve been using hotspot shield for over 6 months and it’s been one of the best VPNS I’ve tried. Others tended to lose connection or keep switching on/off but hotspot stays on for as long as you want it. I purchased the premium subscription and although a bit pricy ($13 a month) it’s worth it and good for needing a secure stable browsing experience in public locations. It also offers many virtual locations in various countries so you can use it in conjunction with streaming services like Netflix or Disney+ and and others. Good VPN overall!
You will get copyright infringements. App doesn’t work!
by Vito 2001 on 2018/04/27 05:16
I have the paid version of this app. Hotspot Shield did not even bother to reply to my emails until I threatened to write a bad review. So this review will be truthful. I got 5 copyright infringements while using hotspot Shield. When I told hotspot Shield their app doesn’t work and I want my money back, they said it’s been passed the 45 days and they cannot refund me and that their app isn’t meant to download copyrighted movies. If the app can’t protect against downloading a movie how is it going to keep your financial information or emails secure? Bottom line the app doesn’t work, they won’t respond to you unless you threaten them and they won’t refund your money. If I could give zero stars I would
I love this program but it has some problems
by Stelhed on 2018/05/14 12:51
It has been a wonderful experience for me having this program and being able to use it on multiple platforms. I have bought premium and I really appreciate how effective it is. But outside of premium it seems to not work at all. For anyone that plans on using this vpn during school or somewhere with restricted internet this is a must have. However if you are unable to buy premium you wont get good service and stuff. I give a 7/10
I love it!
by Kaesar Rayne on 2018/09/24 02:54
I went with this company because they have a lifetime subscription. It turns out it’s only about 50 years. But worst comes to worst I’ll buy the subscription again. It does not work with Adblock on the iPhone. I believe it does on the computer. I haven’t run into any problems it’s pretty solid for whatever platform you’re running this on. Also you can cover multiple devices (5) in one account. I also have peace of mind with this app. That’s worth the subscription cost.
Purchasing
by TurtleGTV on 2019/12/25 03:36
Had this app for 2 years and it worked tremendously and then all the sudden a popup telling me I have to sign in with a premium account or “start my 7 day free trial” comes up for no reason with no way of closing. If i sign into an account it just throws me right back onto the screen and locks me out of using the Vpn, super disappointing because this worked great UPDATE: ignore everything I said except for the positive stuff, i’m an idiot and couldn’t find the “continue as free user” button.

Nice interface, but cannot connect often
by Alan Raterink on 2017/12/23 21:29
I do like this app, and it has a nice user interface, but it really needs some reworking in terms of connectivity, because I cannot use this app in about half of the places I visit after using it for a few weeks. I don't know if this uses a different type of protocol, but other apps like VPN 360 connect pretty much no matter what, so I don't know what's causing the difference in usability. Additionally, if you leave a WiFi field and try to connect to another one, the app will prevent you from joining any other network until you uninstall the VPN profile.
Used to work fine, but now it’s not
by That_G3_Obsessive on 2019/01/23 20:46
When I first got the vpn it worked just fine, fast connection, reliable, etc. However, in these last few months it’s gotten worse and worse. The connection is now very slow. It takes about 5-10 minutes to load one webpage. It also keeps taking time to load, meaning it stops working for a few seconds before turning back on, then it does it again, etc. The little vpn icon at the top keeps flickering. Because of this websites will just stop loading halfway though, which means another 5-10 minutes of waiting. I’m highly considering switching vpns if this keeps up.
Where R U?
by Our Papa Joe on 2018/02/16 17:27
Well, with Hotspot U R always in the Right Spot because it is YOUR choice, free version is good but for a few pennies more you get to B where U want 2B & that is not the question but a choice! This is my second time writing a review and using my most, “Valuable Resource,” which is my time, as we all, yes all, only have the next moment of time. Remember, “Everyday is a Gift,” so why not use that gift privately when you are on-line and keep your time as your time and only your time with, Anchor HotSpot Shield!
Requires 2 IAPs for full speed.
by DJ Rizzo on 2017/10/21 17:41
I was looking for a replacement for VPN unlimited which has become practically unusable for me on multiple platforms. I liked that this app allowed for simple set up and quick connectivity. Also, I like that this company owns and operates all of their servers. So I decided to try the premium subscription but was disappointed to find out I had to pay even more for full speed. If the normal subscription price was more competitive I would not be bothered by that. However the base subscription price is already higher than other services so I decided to cancel the subscription and continue trying other services.
Awful👎
by AimTops on 2020/05/29 01:13
Why would I have to pay for a VPN? There are better VPN’s in the world that are for free. Just because this is faster and has more countries, doesn’t mean it’s better. Now I have to pay for Netflix and this! And I bet I will forget about this later in time. So what’s the point? And also, there’s a basic option, but it can only connect to 2 COUNTRIES! 2 COUNTRIES! That’s disappointing, I can’t even use this. This is awful. Pls make it so you can have atleast 20 free locations. Cause the basic is nothing. And one more thing, why do I need a account? What’s the point? I’m just connecting to a country. I hate this so much, pls fix this, cause this is 2 stars for now.

Got charged for for free trial
by Redbloodedwoman on 2020/11/30 03:53
I got charged for a free trial and I wasn’t even aware that the app wasn’t going to work for me either. Downloaded the app today just to see if it worked and it didn’t and I deleted the app today as well and still got charged 16 bucks. Have nothing against the app, just didn’t like that I got charged right away. Would’ve liked to see if it works for me first and then make that decision if I want to buy and stay with it. Refund please?
Literally in love with VPN
by ehines2007 on 2019/03/22 22:09
I thought this app was going to be a fake thing where you have to purchase all this dumb crap but you don't! I'm so happy with this! So basically you can connect with VPN whenever you feel like it through the app! And it again immediately shows up in your settings once you download it and get started. It's so simple and I use it all the time for my friends who have iPods and everything. Obsessed❤️ I highly recommend this. GET IT NOW
Really good for school
by Arandomplayerofthisgame on 2020/10/21 18:15
It works really well for school networks and to bypass the firewall, just one add before activation seems like a fair trade off for being able to play games at school, sometimes disconnects when you turn off your phone while connected to a protected network like a school network but you can just reactivate it. Overall good vpn for school premium might be worth it but I don’t have the money right now to buy it so can’t say.
No doubt
by Buddysbase on 2021/04/29 14:21
Since installing the app Ive enjoyed the privacy and protection it offers me in public places, on the road and at work! Funny story! I had forgot I set my VPN to Ukraine and had logged into my bank account. I got a call not long after from customer service about some malicious activity on my account from another country... well needless to say I had to explain my proxy and that I would not set it to a foreign country! I enjoy the privacy Hot Spot Shield gives me. I feel assured my texts and conversations are secured!!! Thanks HSS!!!
Appreciation for your efforts
by El.Zi on 2021/02/22 17:37
Thank you very much for making this VPN, I have been working with this VPN for many years and I am very satisfied with it, because it has always started Carmeno and solved my problem, and when I bought the account, it works great with high speed and power. It provides service and it does not bother, it does not interrupt or slow down, even when I use it for free, it works very, very well and provides the best service.
