Hotspot Shield Elite VPN review

Hotspot Shield Elite is perhaps the cheapest VPNservice on the market that simultaneously gives the user complete anonymity. It is one of the best known names within VPN providers and have up to 100 million. users.

The product is related to the price and is cut to the bone, but there is the low price despite not compromising safety.

Hotspot Shield has a free version, however, you have to deal with advertisements and lower priority on the servers (= lower download speed and higher response times), why it is recommended to upgrade to the payment version. The free version, however, is nice to get acquainted with the product. If you want to use file sharing / P2P (torrents and the like), you need to find another provider, then Hotspot Shield has blocked it.
