What's new in version 3.37

    New version introduces a few major UI and Functionality changes.
    Now Hotspot Shield for Windows has 2 Modes available:
  • Maximal Mode: The conventional "Maximal" mode keeps Hotspot Shield VPN on to give you the privacy, anonymity and security all the time. It has the same functionality as previous Hotspot Shield versions (ability to switch virtual locations, malware protection);
  • Auto Mode: This is a new way of protecting you only when it's necessary. We automatically detect when you are connected to an unsecured Wi-Fi, then turn Hotspot Shield VPN on. It does not provide virtual location options (your real IP will not be hidden).
