Hotspot Shield Elite VPN review

Hotspot Shield Elite is perhaps the cheapest VPNservice on the market that at the same time gives the user complete anonymity. It is one of the best known names inside 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, where you have to find yourself in advertisements and lower priority on the servers (= lower download speed and higher response times), so it is recommended to upgrade to the paid version. However, the free version is great for getting acquainted with the product. If you want to use file sharing / P2P (torrents and the like), you must find another provider, as Hotspot Shield has blocked it.
