Hotspot Shield VPN

Access all your favorite content privately and securely

About Hotspot Shield VPN

Hotspot Shield VPN acts like an underground tunnel that connects you to your favorite websites. When you connect to a VPN, it turns a public network into a private network using military-grade encryption so hackers, identity thieves, advertisers, governments, ISPs, and others can’t monitor what you’re doing on the internet.

On public networks, these groups can track your online behavior virtually non-stop to steal your personal information, bank records, usernames, passwords, serve you targeted ads, or simply set rules about what website you can and can’t visit.

Since you’re able to access websites anonymously using a VPN, not only is your personal information safe from prying eyes, but you can get by content filters that are set on Public Wi-Fi networks at work or school, and other forms of internet censorship set by ISPs and governments.

Hotspot Shield is “a top choice for encrypting your Wi-Fi connection.

Why do I need a VPN?

People all around the world use Hotspot Shield VPN to gain unrestricted access to all their favorite content from almost any location. With governments and ISPs continuously trying to censor the internet, internet freedom and net neutrality have become controversial issues that affect the lives of virtually all people. This is exactly why we built Hotspot Shield VPN: to help provide secure, private access to the world’s information for everyone.

But that’s not all. Here’s a fact many people don’t know: your home Wi-Fi network is just as unsafe as any public Wi-Fi network. Most routers are easily hackable because they have no built-in security protocols. That’s right — no security protocols whatsoever.

For this reason, home routers are a primary target for cybercriminals looking to steal your personal information and to commit harmful cyberattacks across the internet. Additional layers of security are a must to keep hackers, cybercriminals, and other information thieves at bay. A VPN provides the privacy and information security you need to keep you and your family safe from hackers, snoopers, and identity thieves.
