Customer Reviews For Hotspot Shield

Shane - 1 year ago

Liars. They lead you to believe you can have a free trial, and then after install, they say you have to subscribe to Pango to use it. That will cost you the full amount of the subscription. My next step will be to uninstall this. Don't fall for it.

Shaun - 1 year ago

It has worked great for me. really good response and dealings with customer service. Allows me to download music from torrent sites without receiving a cease and desist email from my cable provider. no complaints after having it for a year.

Denis - 2 years ago

Not the best and when try to delete does not let me crap as far as I am concerned

I signed up to Hotspot Shield because it got good reviews. My main interest is in accessing BBC iPlayer when I'm out of the UK (I do have a TV licence but travel for work a lot!). iPlayer started blocking access over a month ago. Hotspot Shield support could offer no work around, except that it would probably take a couple of weeks to get things up and running again. Five weeks later, I'm still being blocked. I've missed a whole summer of sports broadcasts. Having said that, the service seems to work well for other sites. So if you're not interested in iPlayer, it may be worth a try.
