Hotspot Shield is the most trusted virtual private network (VPN) service in the world, with more than 250 million downloads. The software provides Internet privacy and Wi-Fi security wherever you are, utilizing advanced encryption technology to secure browsing sessions, block malware, and enable access to any content. It also protects your IP address so you can surf the web anonymously.
Available on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices, Hotspot Shield has been rated as the world's most popular solution for staying safe in public Wi-Fi hotspots. It creates a personal secure tunnel for each user, keeping online activities, searches, sites visited, and personally identifiable information private. Hotspot Shield comes in free and paid versions – the latter does not have ads and provides extra security and speed.
Hotspot Shield is a product of AnchorFree, a Silicon Valley-based company whose mission is to provide online security, privacy, and free access to content for every Internet user.
