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.
