It works great when it decides to. My wifi at work isn't super great, so the VPN never connects while I'm there. But it doesn't usually turn back on afterwards. It has been "connecting" for two days, and now it's been "disconnecting" for a while. I'm very frustrated that I paid for a service I get to use, effectively, at random.

Seems to work well most of the time. Sometimes the connection is slow requiring a quick reset by disconnecting and then reconnecting. Some apps will not work with Hotspot shield ON. If you disconnect, it will reconnect automatically. There needs to be a fix to this other than going into your App manager to force stop the App. Just recently with the latest update, there are a lot more disruptive adds every time you open an app.

Sorry to hear you're having connection issues. Have you tried these things yet?: Open Hotspot Shield's menu - Tap Quit, then Yes. Go to your device Settings, then Applications - HotspotShield and tap Storage and "Clear Data" then Delete. Start Hotspot Shield again. Contact us if you need more help:

It does what it says. It can be checked by going to whatsmyIP. Com .You can set it up within the app, to look like your virtual up address is coming from almost any country you want. I'm sure someone with enough Tech knowhow time and reason could figure out who it is, but as way of hiding your browsing habits, from third party trackers, this is it. Videos run without buffering, and switching from 1 site to the next, may lag a bit, not enough to be a deal breaker. I recommend this app!
