    This one is the same with the non basic app, u should choose payment method eventhough you're not charged for 1st 7-days. For people like me who didn't have any credit card, just wanna try to use the free version can't use the app, although you didn't have any problem with ads and ready to got the ads, you can't enter it without credit card registered on payment method first

    It's much better then the premium one (which i obviously didn't buy) it"s not laggy and broken like the premium one but it does sometimes break but that's fine that's why im giving 4 stars

  14. Will Bee-avatar

    Will Bee


    Was a great app before, however the updated free versions are impossible with constant relentless ads that actually disrupt every part of your experience. I understand the need for advertising, but this is beyond acceptable. in addition to being cut off every 30 minutes, there is a ad that disrupts your Connection every minute or so. It's way too much. It's difficult enough accessing the VPN in the UAE, and so being able to connect is difficult enough without the additional constant ads

    Had this on my old phone, it was good - I think I was asked to sign up for premium and I just pressed X to use the free version, however when I went to download on my new phone theres no x available so, it's just not there and that's why most people are complaining, I guess it works for some devices and not others. Idk?

    It is the best vpn i have ever seen, but On The last version of this app you couldn't connect to VPN for long time, you will be disconnected after thirty minutes and you should wait for 10 minutes and after that you can be connected again,and thats very bad. (you can pay some mony to solve this problem, remove ads and finally increase the speed)

  20. Hertz Schwartzkropft-avatar

    Hertz Schwartzkropft


    the app disconects all the time in order to force you to watch the ads by re conecting (that is understandable since it is free and some how they have to make a revenue) but this is hapening without prior informing you (actualy you have to check it again and again). This cancels the only purpose of a vpn provider which is to keep your data encrypted and even dangerous since rutine-disconection(every 10 mins aprox) may hapen when you think that your ip is "secure".

    I find this free vpn app. the most useful app. I have ever used . Thank you for the good job. Best Wishes, R. Khalilbeigi. What more can I add to what I have said before except that I find that Hotspot Shield free vpn becomes more dependable every time I use it . I am grateful for such a service that is used all over the world . Wish you all the best, R. Khalilbeigi.

    I tried a trial version for 7 days. Problem is that sometimes speed is excellent and sometimes really very poor. Also it is only connecting to US based server only. Overall service is not reliable and we have disconnect and connect again and again to VPN server to get a reliable speed. Please fix this issue so I can think about to continue my subscription. One thing is I want to appreciate that your encryption is really excellent as military grade you mentioned. Thanks

    It worked great before, but the new update is awful. There is an add every minute or two that disrupts the user's experience. Anothet problem that showed up whith the new update is that it keeps reconnecting itself even when I don't want it to and quit the app.It's becoming nearly impossible to use this app. I'm looking for a substitute.

  24. Nematolla Nazari-avatar

    Nematolla Nazari


    this new update is not a good update, dont update it because after updating the app you will have 30menutes time to use the (free) data, and also after connecting to the server, if you open a app for exapmle (youtube,telegram and...) the conection will be lost immediately. i hope this app to be fixed!

    Don't say it's free if it is in fact NOT free!!! A free 7 day trial is not 'free'! You can't even make it for 30 days to be given a true chance at a real free trial! Too many of you shady swindlers out there to waste everyone's time.. It's time for you and your fellow greedmongers to go BYE BYE!

    I truly prefer this one than the premium one. The premium one alwasy has bugs , sometimes stopped after 2 min , and so so slow. This one is much better. But it says it will stop working in 30 days and asked me to download the premium one 😭 nooo, thats cruel lol And if you guys making this one stop working on purpose, then i have to look another vpn app

    new updates make it insanely annoying to use. I don't mind some ads here and there but now the app hijack my browser, open up the app, show a 15-30 sec add, and lock it so i couldn't switch back the the browser until either i finished the ad or skip it. Here is the mort annoying part the ad doesn't instantaneously open up or close down, like i said it first open up the app wait for like 5 sec then it show the ad, it's also the same with when closing the ad. other than that the app work well enou

  29. Bob Bob-avatar

    after last update I'm now expected to PAY this negating the point of the app. give us money and pay for your data twice or go eff yourselves is what seems to be the case here. It's a good way to lose paying customers as well. My boss made it clear, continue to use the service go elsewhere for work. NO WARNINGS JUST GIVE US YOUR MONEY.

    The experience is so great. I live in Europe so I was not expecting the best connection speed as I did not purchase the primeum membership but this has honestly surprised me. I do not get ads for some reason and it offers much more than the more popular app. Much better than Nord VPN and Express VPN which only offer paid membership.

    I have reached this conclusion that there is no free vpn like HSS, althouh rarely I don't manage to connect to my favourite sites , but it is far most the best I have tried . Thank you for the good work. And I may add that recently the free HSS has become much more useful, by showing a short add and then continuing with the site chosen. I admit that I have tried most of ffee vpns and none is really any where near Hss.Ithank you and appreciate the good job you guys are doing. All the best,

    Misleading title. This isn't free at all, it requires a subscription fee. 7 day free trials don't make it a free softare. Just makes for a demo. Why would one pay for a demo anyways? Requires credit card number too. Makes you wonder what sort of information one collect with not only my credit card number, email I.D plus the possibility to monitor every outgoing traffic.

    A nice tip for people who experience connection issues. This VPN provides you a VIP/Premium server for the first connection happening in app. If you want to solve your connection problem or boost your Internet speed, simply clear the data of this app and restart. :)

    Excellent App, but the monthly charge is high, I hope to pay $5 monthly, firt it will be easy to more people to pay it, so you will get more costumers. that means more reviews and more fans! you will 2 by 1. I hope to hear me about this idea.

  47. Michael-avatar



    This app is very manipulative, it purposely disconnects the VPN connection so you have to re enter the app which then forces you to watch a short ad, it is a rinse and repeat process that is purposely put in place to unfairly take advantage of the user to profit more.

  48. Tom Bishop-avatar

    Tom Bishop


    The connectivity is as easy as 1,2,3... The connection is stable and there is not much ads. Not bad for a free app. Compare to the other vpn apps, this is by far the best Free VPN app in the market today...

    I'm feeling disappointed. When I used trial for 7 days it was very fast but after a trial & when i subscribe it doesnt work that much & very slow. I cannot use the vpn as well if I'm not using data, with regards to wifi connections it doesnt work at all.

    i used hotspot for a long time , but i hate those long ads so i decided to change to another vpn without deleting hotspot so that i can switch between vpns when i need , last update when i use any other vpn * keep in mind that hotspot is still installed in my device * when i scroll down the status bar it disconnected , every vpn i tried has the same problem , i deleted hotspot and the problem with others vpn is fixed now .

    It works great. The only problem is the ads and not the ads themselves because this is a free version and I know you need the money. The problem is that the ads appear way too consecutively but it works great on my phone.

  52. Alx-avatar



    It became worse in the last year, it has become very slow, to the point I can't use it anymore. It's been a difficult decision, but after months of troubles, I am not using Hotspot Shield anymore and I would not recommend the service. They used to offer something much better than what they're offering now.

    not working in mtn syria. disconnects continuously. also its cheating on me so when rating stars appear in the app if i give less than 5 star it would ignore my rating but when i give 5 star it will open play and keep my rating. and because of this behavior i now hate this app.

    I have bought the monthly subscription pack but still i am unable to choose location.The worse part is that i don't get the option of changing location even after buying monthly pack. Even they don't refund back my money.I prefer don't use this app until i get my money back

    If this is FREE. Why is it. Forcing me to go for PREMIUM? it gives me 30mins of FREE DATA?? and then 10mins. It will stop.. And refresh again and biggin 30mins data.. Its NOT 100% FREE. But before it was free. Im using diffrent cellphone.. Huawei...

    It will always ON even though you try to switch it off. You can not download any Aps Update unless you switch it off. Otherwise it is fast and reliable. It paid service by the way, not free.

    THOSE ANCHORFREE DUDES ARE THIEVES . Not only the app require so many permission such as access to all your texts and storage and blablabla ... BUT IT ALSO BLOCKS OTHER VPNS TO RUN ON UR DEVICE . I noticed that when I realized that I can't use ANY VPN that I used frequently , and since we all know that this evil app has a 30-min time limit , I had to wait for 10 mins or watch an ad every 30mins , IMAGINE how I would feel during playing online games... now I deleted it and I can use other VPNs!

    It fast but the ads interrupt you every time you open a app and while your using it. This is really annoying because it messes up some of the apps. Please stop using so many ads.

    Works well. Connects fast and stay connected. The only interruption is adds play in between if using free version but that's bearable considering that the version is free.

    So basically people are telling me thie is the best Hotspot? Yet it crashes in under a minute? Jesus, you are paying people to say that, aren't you?

    So slow constant ads every time you open and app or get a notification and when you try to turn it off half the time it says on. Do not download this app

  101. Ebrow-avatar



    Do not download this app.It won't work for you until you turn on Usage Data access for this app and this option for a vpn is not seriously nessary.Also after that It won't give you the internet data until you watch it's add anyway.(It loses connection if you don't watch its advertisment) Do not trust anyway And Do not Downlad

    i hate this vpn so much, like while im watching movie it makes it stop and goes to it's application to show ads no matter what app your in, it's just annoying im so sick of it there's one hundred vpns better than this ad based vpn, like it ruins your Instagram exploring telegram or whatsapp like in the middle of chatting it throws you out and you can't use the app unless you watch an ad, that sucks and it's so much annoying, I'll go delete it right now cus i can't get a long with the ads anymore
