Editors' Review

Hotspot Shield VPN for Android secures your Wi-Fi connection with HTTPS encryption, grants you access to Web sites that in your region may be blocked by a firewall, and enables you to browse the Web privately. It's the most popular app of its kind and for good reason -- it works as intended and runs unobtrusively in the background, requiring minimal configuration.

Pros

Effective: Hotspot Shield VPN for Android's encryption, private browsing, and virtual location work effectively with just one tap, bringing you peace of mind when you're connecting to the Web using public Wi-Fi networks, which by their nature are insecure.

Useful: Grants you access to restricted Web sites like Facebook or YouTube, which you may not be able to access from work or certain countries.

Net Stats feature: By showing you in real time how much data other apps upload and download, it can help you reduce your data plan expenses.

Cons

Fullscreen video ads: The free version will constantly nag you with fullscreen, voiced-over video ads.

Bottom Line

With its efficiency and straightforwardness, Hotspot Shield VPN for Android proves to be an essential security app that you should definitely try, especially if you travel a lot and frequently connect to public Wi-Fi networks. While the free version works fine, you may want to upgrade to the Elite version to get rid of the ads, be able to change your virtual location, and get multiplatform support, so you can use the app with other devices and computers.
