Simple To Use With Certainty

It has benefited me a lot personally and officially, I have also told my friends to install it and they are still using the hotspot shield.

Pros

First of All, Thank you for giving it away for FREE No problem while using it. I searched a lot and finally got a good VPN like this

Cons

Promotion problematic: Hotspot Shield Free incidentally appears as a spring up or header on the highest point of your program. While this window might be shut, it turns out to be fairly dreary to close some without fail

Hotspot Shield VPN - excellent value for the money

I purchased a lifetime license in the past before it became part of Pango. I find it to be excellent value for the money.

Pros

It is easy to setup and use. It runs fairly fast on most of the servers if you know what server to choose from the list and stick to it.

Cons

I sometimes run into cloudflare protection against DDOS attacks saying that from the ip address that I'm using "huge amount of traffic has been reported". I then have to switch to another server from the list an all returns to normal. I mostly run into this issue while selecting a server from US.

Reasons for Choosing Hotspot Shield VPN

The option to purchase a lifetime license at a good price.

Reasons for Switching to Hotspot Shield VPN

NordVPN was too expensive.

Hotspot Shield

You get what you pay for. Buy a quality VPN and do research looking for data leaks and country that company resides in.

Pros

It is easy to use. Did have a history of better service for clients. Can be bundled with other products.

Cons

It can be gotten for free. Many free VPN's typically sell data. Has had a data leak of user information.

Excellent Software for VPN Services

Overall Experience with this software is Great. I recommend this software to all my friends and relatives to use. Very Easy to Use, Good Speed of Connectivity.

Pros

Very Easy to Use and Covers the VPN for Many Popular Countries. I have used this software many times in my daily routine work. It works fine. Speed is Good. Great

Cons

Many of its features are paid and users have to pay for accessing its features. Most Advance and Great features are paid. It's not fair. All Services should be free.

HotSpot Shield VPN

It has definitely made my life easier, by allowing my to bypass certain WiFi restrictions and access more websites to continue doing my work. It's very disheartening to use someone elses WiFi and can access the website that you want, but with HotSpot shield, this issue has become a thing of the past.

Pros

I've been using this software for almost 2 years now, and I love it. The deployment time is fast, functionality is easy and it hasn't let me down YET. Every time I turn it on, it always amazes me at how much easy it is, and for a price like that, it has been worth every penny.

Cons

My only issue with it is the sheer number,ber of AD's it pushes through whenever I turn on an app. And the fact that it would always automatically switch me back to its home page and play an AD before it takes me back to YouTube, is very annoying.

Reasons for Choosing Hotspot Shield VPN

It is Inexpensive, and very reliable, and would definitely recommend it to someone.
