Hotspot Shield Description

Hotspot Shield is a versatile internet security and privacy solution. In addition to protecting you from dangerous online threats, it also protects your privacy and enables you to access any blocked websites and content.

Hotspot Shield creates a virtual private network (VPN) between your device and its Internet gateway. This impenetrable tunnel secures your connection at both your home Internet network & Public Internet networks (both wired and wireless), and protects your identity by ensuring that all your web browsing activities, instant messages, downloads, credit card information or anything else you send over the network are secured through HTTPS.
