I have the paid version

I’ve had HotSpot Shield for at least four years now and it has served me well. It’s my added layer of security while surfing the net - even though I only click on known “safe” websites and don’t go to any potentially risky ones. When I do click on a new website, I like that it asks me if I’m a robot. Those websites try to verify my IP address and they get bounced around, so, it’s okay that they need to confirm that I’m not a robotic program. I also don’t mind looking at local stores from someplace far from where I live - sometimes I look at them to see what they have that’s different from my actual local stores. I use the paid version so that if I have a problem with any of my devices or a website, I can contact support and they will fix whatever went wrong. I prefer responsibility and liability over the free service. To date, no specialized advertisements "just for me", no viruses, no trojans, and no ransomware.

Oops, the app cannot be used

Before downloading this vpn, I have used other types of vpn, but most of them don't provide good service, let us visit the website we want to visit, so I worked hard to find a match on APP STORE I expected the vpn, so I found this vpn.
Before I started using it, this VPN has been working very well, but when I select a certain country again for connection and access, a dialog box will always pop up to remind me to subscribe to download this APP, because the previous use effect is very good , So I did not think about subscribing to this APP, but when I used this vpn again, I found a very serious problem, no matter what country you choose to connect to, vpn cannot connect well. Even if it is connected, it will be disconnected in a short period of time. This will not provide a stable service for me to download and watch certain videos, let alone have a video conversation with friends. I do n’t know why I want to After experiencing such a thing, if I do n’t have a subscription, it ’s okay, I paid for it, but I did n’t enjoy a better service, and it made me unable to visit the website I visited before. I hope they can solve this problem so that I can quickly Use vpn to do something, if it can't be solved, I also hope that they can explain what the original is as soon as possible I do not want to spend time on this vpn.

Great VPN for China

After months of frustration with Express VPN as the The Great Firewall outpaced them, I switched to HotspotShield. It was super easy to access even using censored access as I downloaded the app and payed through the app store. The connection is fast and seems to be great for Netflix, too. I can't figure out Disney yet but I am hoping that's Disney's issue and not HotspotShield's. I am a bit frustrated that I cannot figure out how to easily switch my plan to a yearly membership during my 7-day trial, which probably means I will probably overpay for the first month. But otherwise I think this is a solid VPN, even in one of the most heavily censored countries.
