Recently Hong Kong adopted a national security law which grants broad, sweeping rights to law enforcement to engage in covert surveillance, intercept communications and censor online media.
At Hotspot Shield VPN, we believe in providing a safe, open internet for everyone. Whether you use our Basic (free) or Premium VPN service to access the internet, your internet protocol (IP) address is hidden and your online data immediately secured by military-grade encryption. Even if a government agency physically seizes one of our VPN servers, they would not find any logs or information that would reveal what any individual user was browsing, viewing, or doing online via a VPN connection.
However, out of abundance of caution, we have chosen to remove all of our physical servers from Hong Kong to mitigate any incident of government seizures. We continue to provide a Hong Kong virtual location, giving users access to the sites and apps available in that region without compromising their identity and privacy.
