    "Works great if you have a fast WiFi connection."

    May 11, 2014   |   By oldhippie1955

    Version: Hotspot Shield Elite 3.37

    Pros

    It does what it's supposed to do, protect you on unsecured WiFi internet connections.

    Cons

    It really slowed down my internet connection by half. I have a 15MB connection and it slowed it down to 7MB, but it was still fairly fast and usable. If your internet connection is slow to begin with, turning on Hotspot Shield makes it so slow you can't use it as I recently experienced at a motel.

    Also the automatic subscription renewal is on by default. I had to contact customer support to find out how to cancel it and it was very difficult to find where it was, I had to go to a different website and log in to cancel automatic renewal. They almost have it hidden so you can't cancel automatic renewal easily.

    Summary

    Works great on fast WiFi internet connections but practically unusable with slow internet connections.
