Access all your Favorite Websites
Hotspot Shield VPN allows you to unblock sites at school, college, university, the library or your office. With Hotspot Shield you can bypass filters and firewalls set by your network administrator to gain access to your favorite content anytime and anywhere you want. You can access Facebook, YouTube, Gmail and unblock gaming websites with Hotspot Shield VPN. It does not require any administrative permissions to download, install and run on your work computers. Just download it from our website and you are ready to go.
Bypass Location-based Restrictions
Some governments block access to certain websites by setting uplocation-based restrictions. These prevent users from accessing blacklisted websites in their respective countries. Hotspot Shield respects freedom of information and offers access to blocked websites in your country. As a Hotspot Shield user, you can easily bypass geo-restriction set by the government to gain uncensored access to the websites you want.
Location-based filters identify your location using the IP address assigned by your ISP andblock you from accessing particular websites. Hotspot Shield assigns you a new IP address belonging to one of its servers in the U.S. This gives you uncensored access to any content you want.
Anonymous Web Surfing
Even if you are able to unblock sites at your office using, say, a proxy service, if your IP address is not secured employers or other guardians can very easily track your computer. Hotspot Shield secures your IP address from snoopers and allows you to surf the web anonymously. It allows you to unblock sites at work and browse the internet anonymously on an IP address belonging to a Hotspot Shield server in the U.S.
As a common practice ISPs (Internet Service Providers) log the activity of their users including browsing patterns, the websites they often visit, their downloads, etc. Hotspot Shield replaces the IP address given to you by your ISP and allows you to browse the internet anonymously using a new U.S. IP address. We understand your need for free, secure and private access to any information you want. Hotspot Shield will not log your web activity.
Hotspot Shield is available as a free, advertising-supported VPN, and also as a subscription Elite version which offers a premium level of internet security.
