"How Anonymous Are You Really With Hotspot Shield?"
This software does change your ip address, But that's all.
Depending on what website you visit Hotspot Shield can be useless.
I used to frequent a website called Topix, And some guy started harassing me. Now i can handle being harassed but, What disturbed me was when the guy was able to tell me my computer name, ISP, my internet browser, and the state i was in. But he did give me the wrong IP address, and the city he gave me was actually about 30 minutes away from me. My point is, With Hotspot Shield installed i should have been more anonymous than that. If people are savvy enough they can find out who you are, and where you are even with Hotspot Shield installed.
