Why choose Hotspot Shield VPN for Android

Access the internet without borders

With 3,200+ VPN servers in 80+ countries — including 35+ cities around the world — it’s never been easier to access content from across the globe. Whether you’re traveling abroad and want to watch your favorite streaming service as if you were back home, or whether you need to access websites and services that are restricted in your area, Hotspot Shield’s sophisticated encryption means you can access the content you want, when you want it.

“By far the fastest VPN”

World’s fastest VPN, verified by experts

Most of the leading VPN providers all use the same antiquated open source technology. Hotspot Shield is different. We built our own patented Hydra protocol from the ground up, and it delivers a far more consistent VPN connection — not to mention speeds over 2x faster than the nearest competition when connected to long-distance servers. In fact, Speedtest found Hotspot Shield actually increased download speed by more than 26.2% compared to when not using a VPN, while all other providers decreased speed by at least 42.5%.

Do I need a VPN on my Android device?

You can avoid mobile data caps by connecting to public Wi-Fi networks, but that also creates security risks. Public internet connections are notoriously insecure, allowing hackers and identity thieves to snoop on devices using the shared network. They can monitor your web browsing activity to get passwords and steal your sensitive data.

Hotspot Shield VPN connections are fully shielded from hackers and identity thieves thanks to military-grade encryption. We also protect you from tracking by ISPs and other prying eyes by hiding your web browsing activity.

What does a VPN do on Android?

When you connect to the internet, especially over public Wi-Fi, your data is completely visible to anyone with the right tools. If you’re traveling, you also run into issues with geographical restrictions imposed by streaming services and local regulators.

Hotspot Shield VPN stops that from happening. All of the data passing between your Android device and our VPN servers is fully encrypted which means nobody can access it. We also help mask your web browsing activity through our proxy services. And with a global network of 3,200+ VPN servers, you can access your favorite sites and content from anywhere in the world.
