This is the only one with REAL support. This is the only one with malware protection. This is the only one with data compression, (saving me big money on data roaming). If you want privacy, security (& Pandora when you are outside the US), and data savings, then look no further. JMHO" – Cster

Comments and Ratings for Hotspot Shield Free Privacy & Security VPN Proxy
It was working during trial period. (1.4.3)
1/5 By tembe
This app was working until I subscribed it anually. Right now as I am typing the review, VPN is disconnected as this would slow down my internet speed and finaly cuts me off from the internet.Once disconnected from the VPN internet is back on. So I do not know what to say. They did offered me to take turbo speed booster on the check out while purchasing the subscription. Probably it would work if you buy the speed booster, but that cost you twice.
I am really sad and gutted that I have already purchased the subscription but its not working for me after all the trouble shooting process. I am waiting for an update now.
Nice App (1.4.3)
5/5 By mikeyburnsey
Ok you have to pay a monthly subscription its under £4 tha’s the only criticism. The description is spot on it hides your IP and if you check to see where you are located (I choose USA) it will confirm that you are in America. Protecting Your IP is a safe way and it will protect you from Internet fraud. I have being using Hotspot now for over 18 MONTHS The latest upgrade has made it even more friendly to use .
Not free (1.4.3)
1/5 By Luke Barrett
Misleading it is not free at all which it infers on there site, intead it is a 7 day trial then automatic subscription.
Taskbar icon doesn’t show up in dark mode (1.4.3)
4/5 By CineBaker
Whilst in dark mode, the top bar icon is invisable, I thought for ages that the app was crashing, but it was just hidden.
can’t sign in (1.4.3)
1/5 By HaRrYwU3
cant sign in, it shows “invalid request parameters, please try again later” I spent $29.99 and it is even worse then free virson before.
i give 0 star! please fix it or return my money!
MacBook Pro (1.3.2)
1/5 By y0urdad
Donloaded it and installed profile would not connect still!
great but expencive (1.3.2)
3/5 By Farmer steve 55555
Great app, works a treat for the catch up players, i used the 7 day trial but think the monthly price is a little too much.
Works for free (1.3.2)
5/5 By KrisPecik
1/5 By Pinner4567
The good reviews must only be using the free trail period.
there are too many VPN suppliers to have to put up with this company. If you download from the app store then it will make you ‘create an account’ even if you use your Apple ID and the two won’t link together. Meaning that after the trial they will keep charging your apple account but the app will keep turning off and asking you to upgrade. They also automatically charge your apple account £8.99, more than the advertised £3.99 for monthly subscription.
This is a common complaint - look it up. Also, it’s not easy to turn off the automatic billing.
Best I’ve tried for UK (1.3.2)
5/5 By ian-apple
There appear to be two versions for download from their website, the one I found best shows as version 1.3.2b21, it’s far more stable in its connection.
I can watch C4, BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, you name it.
HINT - you may need to set your device to UK time zone to get some sites to work.
Having to keep signing in is a real pain (1.3.2)
2/5 By MyMarksy
This app does not work if you put the Mac to sleep or even just close the lid - I have to keep on putting the username and password in again - A REAL PAIN. Also the same if another user uses it then on both occations you need to put the information back in - they really need to get it sorted. This has been the same for a long time but they are having problems sorting this issue out!!!!!!!
love love love (1.3.2)
5/5 By thelaird
i love this i can watch all uk content when abroad all the players
i regard it highly 5stars 10 if i could
5/5 By Hammershields
This works well for me. Sometimes I want to access something in the UK which I cannot when abroad, such as the National Lottery. This, when set correctly to UK allows me to do so. I haven’t tried it yet with BBC iPlayer but will report back.
Hotspot Shield (1.3.2)
4/5 By Khalid Turk
I am very pleased with it!!
5/5 By tafouseraza
Just OK (1.3.1)
3/5 By The Dripping Tap
Hotspot Shield works adequately most of the time, although you do need fairly high internet speeds, which means where I want to use it most (hotels which usually block many decent TV & movie streaming sites) can be very frustrating. The admin of the provider & back up is awful - I’ve been cut off with months left & also had new subscriptions not recognised. Unfortunately I haven’t found anything better!
straight forward (1.3.1)
5/5 By ILoveBaconAndEggs
nice free trial, you get what you pay for
Total garbage (1.3.1)
1/5 By KarlShiv
Having already reported these issues to HSS, and received no workaround or fix, I advise people to avoid this version of HSS until the developers fix the following issues:
1. The VPN conection keeps dropping… which means that blocked sites (Netflix/BBC Iplayer) continually tell me that I am located in my home country rather than the country that owns the VPN IP address. Content is blocked.
2. HSS decided to remove the data counter from this version of their app which means it is impossible to find out if data is being transferred whilst connected to the VPN.
Avoid, avoid avoid...
1/5 By Chyciebabe
Worked fine for the first 8 months of my subscription, but since a number of updates in March 2016 has been rubbish. Constant loop of asking you to sign in and download a profile then informs you that you have exceeded your number of devices, which I haven’t, yet cannot log in to edit. Was very happy before, but now it’s just utter pants, which the help desk, or more accurately the no-help desk, just refuse to help with or even acknowledge. Sort it out, it’s been over 2 months.
Really great (1.3.1)
5/5 By Dr Bully
Living all over the world, I have found this to be invaluble. I love it!
Used to be good (1.3.0)
1/5 By J Connor
I’ve just renewed for 4 years at a cheap rate. This app doesnt connect to anywhere!!!! What a disappointment, the previous version was excellent. I have to use the Mac DMG which is a real pain.
Don’t do it (1.3.0)
1/5 By Stopcomplaining :o)

Do not bother (1.2)
1/5 By geoffduc
I do not usually write reviews but this time i felt i had no choice
This really is shocking shocking software no connection to the UK for 2 days it is unacceptable

1/5 By seemecme

DON`T BOTHER RUBBISH ££££££ $$$$$$$ €€€€ (1.2)
1/5 By bubbly_soc

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS ONE
Do not buy (1.1.1)
1/5 By Dont need the money
Need to install profiles all the time. When connected it is very slow, particularly google sites.
causing more trouble than it’s worth (1.1.1)
2/5 By Oxford Rick
my experience with the app has been mixed. i first run the app off the website, then uninstalled and moved to the app downloaded off the app store.
ive stopped using it now because loggin on through the VPN has caused logon problems with my email accounts. i have multiple email accounts and access them from a macbook, ipad and iphone. I’m mobile and log on from many places. Before Hotspot, i never had any issues, but now, I never know if my email is going to come through or need another password reset. This might be a problem with other systems, but it all started with Hotspot.
Also, i have reported very slow (0.1mbps) speeds intermittentenly.
finally, they have got to remove Kaboom! I have reported that Kaboom stops me from posting pages on social media sites, but Hotspot couldn’t fix it or explain whats happening
all in all….i wont be renewing my Elite subscription
