Refer friends to Hotspot Shield VPN, get up to 10 weeks of Premium for free!

By Praveen Kannan and Anna Strokolyst 

The Hotspot Shield team believes the internet should be open and secure for everyone, especially during these unprecedented times where much of the world is sheltering at home. Whether you use our Basic or Premium VPN service to connect to the internet, your data is secured with military-grade encryption to protect your identity and data from hackers and online security threats.

Today, we’re making it even easier for you (and your friends!) to get Hotspot Shield Premium VPN for free through our Referrals program on our Windows app.

Hotspot Shield Premium uses our proprietary Hydra protocol which provides military-grade encryption and was recently rated as the “world’s fastest VPN” by Ookla Speedtest. With Premium, you get access to over 115 virtual locations across 80+ countries, HD streaming, unlimited bandwidth, and up to 5 devices per account — so you’re able to stay private while accessing worldwide sites and content from streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and so much more.

How the Hotspot Shield Windows Referral Program works

You get 1 free week of Hotspot Shield Premium for each friend that joins with your referral link, and each of your friends get 3 days of Premium free. The more you give, the more you get— up to a maximum of 10 weeks of Premium for free!

For now, Hotspot Shield referrals can only be made through our Windows app, which is free for everyone to download. We are working hard to launch this program across other platforms soon. 

Step 1: Get the latest Hotspot Shield for Windows

Step 2: Go to Account and click “Refer friends”

Step 3: Copy your referral link. The link expires by August 1, 2020, so remember to share before then!

Step 4: Share away! Post on social media, blog or share over text or emails. 

Step 5: Get notified when friends join and you’ve earned 1 week of Premium free
