    "Only solution for accessing blocked websites"

    September 12, 2011  |   By fenerbahces

    Pros

    - I can access any website that is blocked.
    - I can watch American movies and TV on Hulu.com from Turkey, which is not available here.
    - Very reliable service. Never had a connection failure.
    - Free

    Cons

    - They put ads on the browser but no problem for me.

    Summary

    I use this program everyday because I live in Turkey where some of my favorite websites are blocked. I've tried every alternative solution to unblock websites (DNS server, proxy servers, Vtunnel, etc.) but Hotspot Shield works the best among them and never failed for me. Very reliable service.
