Hotspot Shield is a software application that enables users to surf the web privately. This program is developed by AnchorFree, and allows users to create a virtual private network to have secure access to web content while maintaining control over their personal privacy.
Hotspot Shield allows users to bypass Internet censorship and restrictions, and gain access to restricted sites and applications. It enables Wi-Fi security, which prevents hackers and viruses from accessing personal data. Hotspot Shield is also used for cloud malware protection, especially by traveling workers who want to save or access data on home computers while moving around.
