Hotspot Shield is a VPN application, developed by AnchorFree, which allows the viewing of websites that can’t be accessed from your geographical area due to restrictions. Additionally you can protect your Internet connection from snoopers that could spy on your traffic and avoiding monitoring processes thanks to the encryption it provides. In this way, besides providing safe access to worldwide information, it can unlock general services whilst keeping your computer protected against unwanted malware thanks to its impenetrable tunnel.
This application is known for the security it grants along with the possibility of avoiding censorship. Using Hotspot Shield you can establish your connection as if you were in another country: for example, in the United States, Japan or Australia. In this way, you can access Internet services that are not currently available in your country, like videos that are geographically restricted due to copyright terms or any other kind of website, without risking the security of your computer during the process.
It can unlock general services while your computer is protected against unwanted malware
The application has been awarded with recognitions such as the Best Online Security/Privacy Application by 2013 Appy Awards for its contribution to users’ privacy. This security is granted via a 128-bit SSL encryption that lets its users surf the Internet anonymously through the author’s gateway. This process avoids data theft while you are using Hotspot Shield, assuring a safe connection without the need for difficult settings, as well as unlocking all kinds of webpages for you.
