You asked, we listened! In response to all of your requests via our social media pages and support team, we’ve developed a Windows Phone compatible version of Hotspot Shield. After months of designing and developing, we now welcome Windows Phone users to our Hotspot Shield family. Our expansion into the Windows Mobile arena is a big step towards our mission to provide all internet users with online privacy, security and freedom to access the world’s information.
If you’re new to Hotspot Shield, it’s the most popular free VPN app with over 350 million downloads. Hotspot Shield is built to secure your data, keep your online activities private, and bypass restrictions to unblock any site or app. With the app, you can bypass firewalls and region restrictions to access movies, music, social networks and more from anywhere. Awesome right?!
Today, we’re thrilled to present you with the Windows Phone version of our Hotspot Shield app! Let us know what you think—it’s your valuable feedback and support that helps us improve our products and services.
Currently, the Windows Phone app is completely FREE and runs no ads. It includes a US virtual location and unlimited bandwidth. This means you can browse the net privately and unblock your favorite sites on your Windows Phone without restrictions! While the Windows Phone app is still in its early stages, we wanted to make the version available for you to test and give feedback on. So we ask, please be kind and lenient when rating us in the Microsoft Phone store :)
