"Not worth the $$$"
Just a regular VPN
Reveals your IP on some sites
Get SpotFlux instead. It's totally free, unlimited download, no advertising, and has malware protection. Also SpotFlux shows "No reverse DNS" when you test it a "GRC Shields-Up". Where as even "HotSpot Shield Elite" allows your IP to be seen. With Hotspot Shield you will never know if your IP has been revealed when you enter a web site.
I have tried many VPN's and most free ones work better than this one. Another good one is "Just Free VPN". Nothing to install just have to add you just set up a connection.
But the very best is Spot Flux, Made in USA you can check them on Wikipedia, also they have nice customer service response.
