    "... I prefer Hotspot Shield."

    October 31, 2013  |   By ParkJunNah

    Version: Expat Shield 1.43

    Pros

    -Nice for the british sites

    Cons

    For Expat there are far too

    Summary

    I found Hotspot Shield and it is a great software unlike Expat Shield. Hotspot Shiel offers a wide range of IP address as Australian, British, Japanese or American.

    "No longer free..."

    October 6, 2013  |   By antirussia81

    Version: Expat Shield 1.43

    Pros

    Used to be good...

    Cons

    ..but it's not.

    Summary

    If you want to change your IP and get a British one, try Tuxler. It's free and simple. And there are no ads (screw you, Expat Shield!).

    I spent two days seeking a decent (and free) IP changing software. I don't want you to waste so much time so I decided to register and give you a little tip ;)

    "Great but risky"

    September 6, 2013  |   By jet65cymru

    Version: Expat Shield 1.43

    Pros

    Worked as I wanted it to accessed the catch up TV sites I wanted

    Cons

    Enabled unknown people to access my computer and hacked my Skype account ending up sending spam sms to Australia. I wasn't sure at first but little things like a program opening and other little clicks in the earphones should have warned me.

    Summary

    Works well but security risks are too great to continue

    "No way to turn off to access USA sites....."

    May 27, 2012  |   By SAJAHAND

    Version: Expat Shield 1.43

    Pros

    Great for the UK shows you will not be able to get otherwise....

    Cons

    No way to exit program to access USA programs. My Netflix thinks I am in the UK so I cannot access my queued movies. Limits some movies but can access UK movies. Some ads take over the webpage you try to access and once you are there you have to wait like an ad then click continue after the ad times out to access webpage you want.

    Summary

    It works, cool. Will need to uninstall on main PC and use it on one of my older laptops. Sad it doesn't have a way to turn it off and on when you need it.

    "Worked wonderfully"

    August 16, 2011  |   By A-L-White

    Version: Expat Shield 1.43

    Pros

    Works instantly after connecting and with wonderful quality, no bouncing by BBC.

    Cons

    Some ads but if you don't download the toolbar the ads are at a minimum and you can close them out.

    Summary

    I recommend this for any Anglophile or expatriate longing for a bit of the motherland's telly.

    "Starts Great, then the problems"

    December 7, 2010  |   By SemperFlexis

    Version: Expat Shield 1.43

    Pros

    Quick and easy to install, gave free access to BBC Iplayer

    Cons

    Within days of installing Expat Shield 2 weeks ago, I now have the BSOD every day! and my protection sofware has defeat 3 keylogger attempts on my system, may be coincidence, but 1st time in owning laptop for 1 year

    Summary

    Be caustious. There's no such thing as a free meal!

    "Works but with problems"

    December 6, 2010  |   By simonrowell

    Version: Expat Shield 1.43

    Pros

    Easy install and allows access to iPlayer as advertised

    Cons

    Interferes with network settings on your PC in potentially negative ways.

    Summary

    I installed this product and was very happy to see that I could view iPlayer (BBC) programmes with no problem. Unlike some VPN programs, this one stays resident in memory on your PC and will interfere with your other web activities. Specifically, I found that when DISCONNECTED from the VPN I had the folloing symptoms:

    1. MMORPGs would pause frequently (every 20 seconds)
    2. Web pages in browsers would only partially load or sections would timeout
    3. Visiting SpeedTest.net (a network speed testing website (duh)) I found that the download test worked (with good statistics), the upload test TIMED OUT every time!!!

    When I uninstalled the VPN software, all problems were resolved. It would be so nice if you could exit out of this sftware when you're not using it, then everything would be fine.

    I tested this on the latest 1.54 version of the software as well as 1.43, btw.
