"Works great as VPN, sucks as a software"
Good fast vpn which is free unlike most other free ones out there.
Hotspot shield comes with malware just like other people mentioned. I kept getting the ad banner when surfing the net.
When I tried to uninstall it from control panel my internet stopped working completely. I tried restarting but no luck. Then I had to manually uninstall the driver it installed with my lan driver. After a restart it worked. Now I can't uninstall the software and since their website is blocked in my country I can't really do anything about this piece of annoying malware junk.
Good vpn, bad for computer. Not worth the trouble.
