Hotspot Shield for macOS

Mac users, like you, trust Hotspot Shield VPN to protect their online data transactions, so they can browse and stream anonymously and unrestricted.

Hydra coordinates and optimizes multiple server locations so you get faster connections that are stronger over long distances.
