5 stars- "Control your Privacy and Security - I've now tried them all (VPNs) as I travel 200k miles each year. This is the only VPN that works consistently, especially in MENA and APAC. This is the only one with REAL support. This is the only one with malware protection. This is the only one with data compression, (saving me big money on data roaming). If you want privacy, security (& Pandora when you are outside the US), and data savings, then look no further. JMHO" – Cster

Works mostly well, but watch out for premature “renewal" attempts

AnchorFree seems to have a problem with bookkeeping. This is the second time I got ‘disconnected’ from the Elite service for an allegedly expired subscription. When I questioned, their emails got very confusing, and their instructions impossible or complicated to follow.
I finally confronted them with the facts in my records and now suddenly their ‘system shows" that my Elite account ‘is active' (with 372 days left) !
They also wanted me to let them know if I continue ‘having difficulties operating HSS”. Not a hint of an apology though!

Working well!

I have been using Hotspot Shield software, and now trying this version I got from App Store. Very simple, working as promised.
So far little to no connection issues. Elite service upgrade also worked well, and I can apply it to my phone too!

Please fix the paywall bug… I paid for Elite subscription...

I paid for hte Elite subscription and I’m still getting the paywall frequently saying that my elite expired… Only way to fix it is to disconnect and reconnect the VPN everytime… I lose my browsing url occassionally because of this.. This adds no value to my subscription and there needs to be some sort of compensation…
