Final Verdict

Compared to top tiers VPNs, Hotspot Shield has many standard features missing and it's complicated website models make it hard to find important technical information. 3rd party managed browser logs can also be a concern for some customer but the one thing that it does do well is long term pricing, and if you curious about how well it performs than a version is also available. I would only recommend this product for someone who is looking for a cheap long term option.
