Updates to our privacy policy

Updates to our privacy policy

Every day at AnchorFree, we help millions of people like you securely and safely access information through our products, like Hotspot Shield and Betternet. To better support our customers and facilitate future product improvements, we’re updating our existing privacy policy

We’re simplifying things by moving all of our products under a single privacy policy. We’re also making the policy easier to read, so you can quickly find the information you’re interested in. We’re now making the ads that appear in our free apps personalized while our paid apps continue to be ad-free. Displaying personalized ads does not involve sharing any information with advertisers about what you do with our apps, such as what you browse using our VPN services. We explain this change in detail in section 3.2. 

It is important to note that none of the changes in our updated policy reduce your privacy when using our VPN services. Please read the full version here, which will go into effect on October 1, 2019. If you have any questions regarding these updates, please contact us.
