"I highly recommend it"

September 16, 2014

 |  Version: Hotspot Shield Elite 3.37

Pros

While there are plenty of VPN options available, Hotspot Shield gives me quite a decent speed and protection. Some other shows aren't available when other vpn programs had been connected but Hotspot Shield works awesome on hulu.com etc. I highly recommend it.

Cons

"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.
