“Hotspot Shield functions as a gateway between your device and the hotspot, allowing you to browse securely and privately regardless of where you’re connected.” Appolicious Nov. 10, 2011
“Hotspot Shield also packs a data optimization feature that should help stretch your monthly data allotment. The app spots three different levels of data compression, with the most spartan settings stripping out cruft like extraneous photos and ads.” Chris Velasco, Techcrunch Nov. 11, 2011
“The iPhone is incredibly vulnerable when you decide to use a public Wi-Fi network. Someone could hijack your Twitter or Facebook accounts, steal passwords, or even take a peek at your email and instant message conversations.
So what can you do to stay safe? You can create and maintain a secure Internet connection by using a virtual private network (VPN). And while that sounds like it`d be difficult to set up, it can actually be done with just a few taps and an app called Hotspot Shield VPN.” Gadgetbox on MSNBC, Nov. 11, 2011
VPN constantly drops and won`t load any Internet until its reenabled manually even while in automatic mode. Sometimes VPN won`t work at all. Now it won`t even let me install profiles and when it does it gives me an error waste of 10 bucks!
Bad app, buggy and completely not worth downloading!
Top reviews Ltd
Ok so first of all when I got this app I used the free trial, it worked fine for an hour but after that it stopped working, basically my device couldn`t connect to the VPN server, I tried it so many times but I got negative responses; VPN server did not respond; could not negotiate with server. After that I tried to purchase a subscription and it gave me errors so I have no Idea what to do, but now they have even charged me for the subscription even though I didn`t get anything >:(
Fine app, when it works
It seems that 50% of the times that I try to use it, the app says that the servers are inaccessible. This will stay down for hours at a time. Try something else if you are looking for the perfect hotspot shield.
