Why Use Hotspot Shield VPN to Unblock Websites
Hotspot Shield VPN is the ultimate website unblocker. It can bypass filters and firewalls set by your network administrator to gain access to your favorite content at your school, the library or your office. Use it to get access to Facebook and YouTube and unblock Twitter, unblock gaming websites, unblock Gmail or other sites.
It’s free and does not require special administrative permission to download, install or run on your work computer. Just download it from our website and you are ready to unblock your favorite sites and watch the content privately.
Besides enabling you to unblock your favorite websites from anywhere, Hotspot Shield VPN provides many useful and important benefits:
Bypass Location-based Restrictions for travelers abroad – If you are traveling abroad, you may find that the local government blocks access to certain websites or services by setting up location-based restrictions. These restrictions prevent you from accessing blacklisted websites in the respective country you are in. Hotspot Shield stands for freedom of information. Our VPN software offers you access to blocked websites in the country you are staying at or living in. As a Hotspot Shield user, you can easily bypass geo-restrictions set by the government to gain access to the censored website you want.
Location-based filters identify your location using the IP address assigned by your ISP and block you from accessing particular websites. Hotspot Shield assigns you a new IP address belonging to one of our servers worldwide. This gives you free access to HULU, Netflix, Youtube or other content you want.
Surf the Web anonymously, privately and securely - Although using a proxy service can enable you to unblock many websites, a proxy service doesn’t provide as much security and protection as a VPN. Hotspot Shield encrypts your data and shields your IP address from snoopers, enabling you to surf the web anonymously with an IP address belonging to a Hotspot Shield server in the U.S.
As a common practice, ISPs (Internet Service Providers) log your Web activities, including browsing patterns, the websites you often visit, your download history, etc. Hotspot Shield replaces the IP address given to you by your ISP and enables you to browse the Web anonymously using a new U.S. IP address.
We respect your need for free, secure and private access to the information you want.
- Malware Protection – Malware refers to malicious software that is unleashed by the bad guys to steal your personal information such as your social security number, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information. Hotspot Shield VPN comes with malware protection to protect your device from malware attacks.
Hotspot Shield is available as a free, advertising-supported service and also as a subscription-based Elite version, which offers a premium level of internet security.
