Hotspot Shield Information

RoSoftDownload Editor's Review :

Secures your Internet connection against hackers.

Hotspot Shield is a program for encrypting your Internet connections. Basically, this means that anyone can browse the internet in a secure and uncensored way, no matter of its location. The solution is most suited for locations that might still impose some restrictions over the Internet websites, so the users in those countries will gain anonymous access to the restricted webpages.
The program installations creates an HTML shortcut on the desktop. When this shortcut is accessed, the local browser is accessed, and the user IP is changed, by assigning another IP, to obtain an anonymous connection. Also, the application is loaded in the taskbar, noticeable as a green icon, which you can use to disconnect from the program.
The application opens an advertising banner, on the top of each webpage, which might be annoying, but it does not affect the functionality. It can be closed, but it reopens when another webpage is accessed.
As a conclusion, we recommend this software for every user that wants to maintain its Internet surfing private, or wants to eliminate various restrictions imposed on some websites.

Publisher's Description:

From AnchorFree
Works on wireless and wired connections alike. Provides Unlimited Bandwidth.

Hotspot Shield protects your entire web surfing session; securing your connection at both your home Internet network & Public Internet networks (both wired and wireless). Hotspot Shield protects your identity by ensuring that all web transactions (shopping, filling out forms, downloads) are secured through HTTPS. Hotspot Shield also makes you private online making your identity invisible to third party websites and ISPs. Unless you choose to sign into a certain site, you will be anonymous for your entire web session with Hotspot Shield. We love the web because of the freedom that it creates to explore, organize, and communicate. Hotspot Shield enables access to all information online, providing freedom to access all web content freely and securely. Secure your entire web session and ensure your privacy online; your passwords, credit card numbers, and all of your data is secured with Hotspot Shield. Standard antivirus software protects your computer, but not your web activities.

Hotspot Shield application keeps your Internet connection secure, private, and anonymous.

* Secure your web session, data, online shopping, and personal information online with HTTPS encryption.

How does Hotspot Shield VPN Work?

Hotspot Shield creates a virtual private network (VPN) between your device and our Internet gateway. This impenetrable tunnel prevents snoopers, hackers, and ISP‘s from spying on your web browsing activities, instant messages, downloads, credit card information or anything else you send over the network.

Hotspot Shield VPN vs. Web Proxy & Antivirus Software

VPN software offers similar privacy protection and website access benefits as a web proxy. However, VPN software such as Hotspot Shield VPN offers you much better security and privacy protection than a web proxy.
The standard antivirus software protects your computer, but not your web activities. Our VPN software keeps your Internet connection secure, private, and anonymous.

Finally, our free VPN service secures your connection at both your home network & public networks (both wired and wireless). It works on PC, Mac, Android, iPhone and iPad devices and is compatible with the most recent desktop (Windows 8 and Mountain Lion) and mobile operating systems.

Hotspot Shield VPN is free to download and is easy to install and use.
