Editors' Review

As one of the easiest VPNs to set up and use, Hotspot Shield Elite safeguards your online identity and information without any glitches. It's nice in a pinch, but it's not nearly as powerful when compared to some other premium options available. Its simplicity might win the day for you, though.

Though Hotspot Shield Elite lets you download and surf without a bandwidth cap, you are limited to seven days before you have to pay. There is a wholly free version, but it's riddled with ads. Once you've registered with Hotspot Shield, protecting your surfing only requires one click and no complicated setup. The program drops an icon into your browser's URL so you always know whether or not it's on. Though it encrypts your surfing, if you try to download a torrent it may throttle your connection. All other downloads will be encrypted, though. The download will use all of the speed of your current connection to load pages, download, and upload. There are no file-sharing capabilities that come with this VPN.

Storage and file-sharing are usually the bread and butter of a VPN. However, if you don't need these features, Hotspot Shield Elite is okay. It protects your privacy and does it with all of the speed you're used to.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Hotspot Shield Elite 2.90.
