Download Hotspot Shield VPN on your mobile or desktop device

You now have a US IP address. To check your IP address, use our tool “What is my IP?”
When you connect to Hotspot Shield’s USA VPN server location, our proprietary Hydra technology automatically selects the best server for your specific needs — be it for gaming, streaming, downloading, P2P, or browsing. However there are times when you might want to manually select an alternate server location within the USA.
Hotspot Shield VPN has 20+ US cities to choose from. Simply click the “United States” server and select your preferred city from the dropdown menu.
As a general rule of thumb, the closer you are to where the VPN server is located, the faster your connection will be. So if you live in Chicago, it’s likely that our “Chicago” VPN server will yield the fastest connection speeds. Again, Hotspot Shield automatically selects the fastest server for you. So just sit back, press “connect”, and let Hotspot Shield do the hard work for you.
There are numerous reasons why you may want to manually select a specific city. These include:
Bypassing sporting blackouts by connecting to a non-blacked out city
Avoiding price discrimination by comparing the cost of goods and services in other locations
Reducing gaming lag by connecting to a city located nearer to the game’s servers
Selling items on classified ad websites in multiple cities at the same time
Whether your traveling on business and need access to your favorite shows as if you were back home, or if you simply want to see what content US streaming services have to offer, a USA VPN enables unrestricted access to American sites and services, and eliminates an Internet Service Provider’s ability to ‘throttle’ your content.
With a USA VPN connected to the “United States” server location, you can access streaming services like:

While there are a number of secure VPN services out there, many sacrifice speed in order to achieve that necessary level of security. Having a secure connection is important, but it’s worthless if it’s too slow to actually use. We found that most of the VPN protocols out there have serious latency issues, so we built our own.
It’s called Hydra, and it strikes the perfect balance between blazing-fast speed and security. Now you can safely surf high bandwidth sites, like Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, without unnecessary interruptions. Thanks to our proprietary Hydra technology, Hotspot Shield VPN has been independently verified as the fastest, most secure VPN on the market.
Complete privacy and security that also blocks 57 million malware and phishing sites a day.
We do not record your VPN browsing activities in any way that can be associated back to you.
Hotspot Shield Premium users can connect up to five devices under one account, keeping you and your family secure.
