Happy I downloaded it.

So I’m not the type of person to review much unless I’m buying it but I def have to for this app. I love it. I downloaded 7 or 8 hotspot apps that were rated good but also had good ratings. However every single app (except for this one) required a membership which I did NOT want to pay for. Although this app has a premium offer as well, it is not required like many of the other apps which was a huge necessity for me. I was a little skeptical at first when I used it but it actually works seamlessly, even without the membership! There is all sorts of country’s to chose from and it doesn’t slow you down at all. I’m happy to recommend this to anyone. And if you do subscribe to the premium you will get even faster speeds and all sorts of other features. Definitely the best hotspot app. Highly recommended!

A constant battle while in China

The VPN worked fine at home in the US, but not while I actually needed it. In Shanghai and Qingdao I needed to use the VPN for accessing any websites, translator apps, etc. that I could normally from home. It took me at least 10 minutes to get it to work every time, closing and restarting the app, trying from different servers *if* it connected, and often being told I had no internet (with three full WiFi bars) or that they were diagnosing problems & to try again later... which still didn’t work after 24 hours. Overall I was lucky if it even worked at all, let alone for longer than 5 minutes. It would often drop me from my WiFi as it “connected”, repeatedly, and caused me to go back through the whole process mentioned above every five minutes (or less!) I had success with this VPN only twice for 30 minutes; but it was hell to get it there. To think I payed $13 for this kind of hassle. What a waste.

China 🇨🇳 and my concern for security.

On my trip to Beijing, China, I prepared a plan for the whole week and enjoy my holidays to the fullest, but I worry about safety in a different country with other customs, culture and laws totally different to what I may be used to, it was in that moment where insecurity took hold of me. In summary China 🇨🇳 is a country that controls the communication and information of its inhabitants and its visitors under strict laws. Here the questions begin;

How do I protect my personal identity information?

How do I protect the information I have stored on my phone?

How do I protect the banking or government information that I may have stored on my phone or through an application installed on my cell phone?

How do I prevent someone from accessing my diary, medical information or malicious intent to track down my location?

Questions that we ask ourselves every day, but when you are in another country it is very dangerous. Use between 8 to 10 VPN applications to have the experience and without a doubt, HotspotShield was the only VPN that met my expectations 100%.
