Hotspot Shield is regarded as one of the best VPNs today, with more than 6 million customers across the globe. It is faster than most other VPNs in the market and has more than 3000 servers in 30 countries.

Although this VPN had some anonymity issues in the past they all seem to have been taken care of, and clients are happy for the most part. Today, it is as secure as other VPNs, and better because it is faster.

The parent company, AnchorFree, is in the United States. It isn't a great location for a VPN, but since it doesn't log user details there is no risk of your information falling into the wrong hands.

Price-wise, Hotspot Shield is good value for money. It falls somewhere between Nord VPN and Express VPN. If you compare with similar services that are in the same price range you will find that Hotspot Shield is much faster and offers superior features.

It is excellent for torrenting, but if you are big on Netflix you may want to try another VPN; you can only connect with Hotspot Shield through a limited number of servers.
