I downloaded this app to bypass my school Wifi firewall on multiplayer games, so I could play some minecraft. I only play during study hall, when it is 100% allowed to play games and do whatever you want, so there was no harm in me doing this. I activated the VPN, and joined Hypixel. It wasnt even a second before I was perm banned from playing on the server ever again, and I have no other option other than making a new account to play on the server again. This might be Hypixel's fault however, and their cheat detection may be flawed, but I had used other VPN services, such as X-VPN, and had no problems. To anyone who plays Minecraft that reading this, never download this app!
I switched from another VPN service and was extremley disappointed. Many of the public sites I regularly use blocked me from access until I disabled the VPN. This is specfic to Hotspot shield. Worse, the company advertises a 30 day satisfaction guarentee, but when I contacted customer service and asked for a refund due to the above, I was refused. I paid over a hundred dollars and it was a total loss. Went with a Cisco VPn and not having any issues now. Definitely don't recommend if you're looking for everyday privacy. I suspect this product is more for those using less trusted and secure sites (dark web, torrents, illicit content, etc.) otherwise its a total waste of money.
fast easy to use no intruption at all you can trust it 😍😍
Best VPN I have ever used. It is consistently up to par
the best vpn
So far so good.
This app has many servers in many countries. It doesn’t slow down my speed at all, and I’m able to use it on five devices simultaneously, so I always have it running on my home Mac, my iPad, and iPhone, as well as my travel laptop and my wife’s iPad. It connects seamlessly through virtually every server or hotspot we come in contact with, and just works. I’d like to see a lower price for multiyear purchases like other VPNs have, that would entice me to stay with Hotspot Shield Elite longer. You do have to cancel the service before your renewal date comes up or they will automatically renew your plan on your credit card, but that’s on you. I’ve had nothing but good luck with the app, though. I’m also having trouble getting my home computer to automatically login to Hotspot Shield Elite whenever it restarts, but I’m working on figuring that problem out. 02/2021: I've had so many problems with my account. It keeps forgetting my password, then when I try to change or update it, it wants me to resubscribe and start a whole new account! I'm just about fed up.
