Why choose Hotspot Shield VPN for iPhone or iPad

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%.
