Hotspot Shield Offers VPN Servers In Multiple Countries

Windows/Mac/iOS/Android: Cross-platform VPN service Hotspot Shield has long been one of our favourite VPN options. It now includes malware blocking and the ability for pro users to select their VPN server's physical location to access content from overseas.

We've talked about how to find a great VPN in the past. Some of the features that make for a good VPN include malware protection, the option to choose where your VPN IP address is located, and minnimal logging. Hotspot Shield already offers malware protection while you're logged in, and the service has never kept access or connection logs. Hotspot Shield now allows you to temporarily suspend encryption locally so you can access the web securely without having to disconnect, and pro users have the option to select where their exit servers are located and choose an IP address in the US, the UK or Australia, perfect for accessing content abroad.

Hotspot Shield is available as a free and ad-supported VPN, but for $US30/year or $US5/month you can strip out the ads and get the new option to select your exit country. You can download the Windows and Mac apps at the link below, or grab the iOS and Android apps at their respective app stores.

    I tried Hotspot Shield a little while back and found it to be a bit touch and go as to whether if would work or not each time I used it. Since then I've been using SafeIP and loving it, its free and lets you choose your county (and city for that matter). Does have a Pro version with even more city/country choices but haven't had a need for it myself and the free version still has access to all the features such as malware blocking. You really should check it out.
    PS I'd love to see lifehacker do a comparison of the two

    Gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that these guys keep records of your surfing history. Which is why I use VPN.S. They are more expensive but they DO NOT keep records. Just sayin...

    You should look at this too
