"A must have. Connects within seconds--stays connected."
Connects within seconds, and stays connected for hours and hours. Shows my IP address as belonging to their main server, 415 miles away! Opens to the AnchorFree web page only once, at first connection--close that tab or window, and never see another ad!
None that I can think of
With use on Windows XP...Connects within seconds, and stays connected for hours and hours. Shows my IP address as belonging to their main server, 415 miles away! The 2 times in the past week that I did lose the connection, Hotspot Shield changed color to warn me, and instantly reconnected itself. At this point, I'm quite satisfied; so far, so good! When Hotspot Shield firsts connects, it opens up a tab/window in your browser to the AnchorFree web page. Once you close that tab, you never see another ad or the AnchorFree page again, until or unless you disconnect the program and re-connect. Then, just the one tab, one time. I expected multi ads and was pleasantly surprised at having none!
