Hotspot Shield


Recommended Posts

I was reading my RSS feeds and ran across an article about Hotspot Shield (www.hotspotshield.com). I have done some initial research on the Internet about this software but have not come to any conclusion if this works or is it snake oil.


Has anyone used this software? If so, what is your opinion?

I wouldn't use it.

  1. I'm pretty sure there are free Firefox and Chrome plugin that do this. Its a ripoff
  2. Most browsers are moving to sandbox sessions anyway
  3. Pretty sure this would impact speed (its basically an SSL proxy)
  4. Paying attention to what you're doing online shouldn't be replaced with tools

I've never used it so I can't substantiate my comments above.
