It’s never been easier to get around geographic restrictions. Hotspot Shield VPN is a simple application that you can download quickly in order to access Netflix, Hulu, and Spotify easily. Hotspot Shield will allow you to bypass location based IP blocking that keeps you from watching your favorite US and UK television shows. You’ll never again have to worry about sitting down for a relaxing evening, only to have to deal with the frustration of having geo-location block ruin your evening.
Hotspot Shield is a “Virtual Private Network” (VPN). A VPN is a network of computers that will use just one IP address in order to access the internet. What this means is that if you are connected to the network, your computer is not actually connecting to the site on its own. Instead, your computer requests that the network connect to a certain website, and then pass the information it receives back to you. In practice, this essentially makes it so that your computer appears to be somewhere that it isn’t. You have placed a secure obstacle between yourself and the website you are connecting to. As far as the website is concerned, a computer with the IP address of the network has connected. The website will never know that the network is then passing along all of the information it receives to someone who is not at the network’s IP address. In other words, you’ve tricked the website into providing the information you want to access to a third party that is then forwarding that information along to you.
Hotspot Shield VPN is available for PC, Mac, Windows Phone, Android and iPhone. You can also download it as a Chrome or Firefox browser extension.
