Notes

Most recently, the developers have added malware protection meaning that while using Hotspot Shield, you shouldn't get infected by anything that may damage your system.

"False sense of security & privacy is no security & privacy at all!!! "

I used to use Hotspot Shield elite, but not anymore ... Hotspot leaks your IP on Secure websites (httpS) without you knowing it without a warning whatsoever. Apparently it provides nothing but a false sense of security and privacy. Anchorfree the makers of Hotspot Shield is not a security company, but actually it's an advertising company. You can go to httpS://www.whatismyip.com or https://www.dnsleaktest.com/ and see for yourself that your real IP is shown not cloaked... This company must be sued for false advertising ... There are better VPN services out there, and I'm using one that truly works as advertised (plus they offer proxy servers too)
