Nowadays if you want to go “incognito” on the Web, encrypt your data or to impersonate a resident of another country, there are two solutions: Proxy and VPN. We will detail in this case what is a VPN
What is a VPN connection?
Before going further, we must first know what a VPN (Virtual Private Network). This is a network that directly connects computers, smartphones, tablets and other remote terminals together transparently via virtual tunnels.
Also be aware that its use is not illegal and is not generally legally restricted.
Another advantage with the VPN is that your data is encrypted. This will secure your data if you use an unreliable Internet connection such as a public Wi-Fi.
Hotspot Shield is a personal support post-security program that can encrypt traffic to and from the internet. People use Hotspot Shield Elite to make it difficult for others, such as your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to monitor and track your web activities. What is good about Hotspot Shield Elite is that it is quite inexpensive, which means you do not need to spend tons of money just to have access to encryption.
Hotspot Shield Elite has a very significant effect on the speed of your connection. Most of the time, your connection will remain connected, making web browsing continuity fairly easy.
Offers and prices
Hotspot Shield Elite costs only $29.95 a year which is cheap compare to other services charging that amount per month or others charging around a 100 bucks per year.
Installing and Using Hotspot Shield Elite
Hotspot Shield Elite is not designed for technicians. Indeed, it was designed specifically for users who do not have the technical knowledge required for more advanced VPN services, so the installation is very easy. You just need to download their installer that comes with a wizard and operate it until it installs the shortcut on your desktop. From there, you can use the service.
You will also always find people giving written or video tutorial to help you through if you have a rough time using or installing Hotspot Shield Elite.
The protocols and assistance to OS
Hotspot Shield has clients for Windows (XP, 2000, Vista, 7 and 8) and Mac OSX (Leopard, Snow Leopard and Lion or more recent).
Some users have reported that Hotspot Shield Elite installs additional Adware on your computer, other than advertisements. The ads themselves are boring, but adware is installed without your knowledge and it is a little disappointing.
Hotspot Shield Elite advantages:
- Easy installation
- Protection against hackers during the use of public Wi-Fi spots
- Protect and secure the information of your internet session
- HTTPS encryption
- Hides your IP
- Access censored or prohibited content blocked by the firewall
- Access streaming websites only available to users located in the United States.

I highly recommend you to buy Hotspot Shield Elite, it will be worth your (small) investment and won’t make your brains hurt with its user friendly interfa
