Great product and have recommended to my colleagues! Excited to see more features come out in the new year. Best VPN I've used - in terms of speed and reliability. Particularly impressed when watching videos and streaming. Use it on Android and my Mac laptop.

I'm usually turned off by products that claim they're the 'fastest' out there, especially at price points that are comparable to alternatives. That's why I was blown away by Hotspot Shield. The setup was easy and it was lightning fast, almost didn't feel like I was using a VPN at all. I tend to stream a fair bit, and haven't experience any lags yet. I'm currently on month-to-month but will likely change to annual soon.
I use Hotspot Shield almost every day for streaming tv and I've also heard it's great for torrenting movies (I totally don't do that though). It's faster and more reliable than the other VPNs I've tried (nordVPN, expressVPN, etc) - 4 months and haven't had any issues with it so far.
I travel a few times a year and always used Hotspot Shield product to catch up on the news and favorite TV shows. It also sometimes takes the hassle out of checking my banking details, since some of the tools are blocked for overseas users. And it's great to shop around for the best price (airline tickets or car rentals - saved as much as $200/week on rental).
