False errors, misleading prompts

I’ve been using Hotspot Shield for about 3+years. At first it was ugly but the update (about a year ago) cleaned that up considerably. Kudos on that. Now I’m occasionally troubled by error messages about having reached the limit on my data usage. When I contacted Support they confirmed that my Elite subscription has no such limits. Yet again in a few days - the same error appears and this time totally crashes my internet access. I downloaded an incremental update with the hope this problem will cease. In addition - I question an app's viability when it’s main panel continues to solicit an upgrade after the upgrade has been purchased. Such is the case here where the main interface modal displays a message to “Upgrade to Elite” even while I’m already using an Elite subscription. This practice is misleading and actually caused me to open a second, redundant account for the same device. Poor marketing? Lazy development? When my subscription ends I will not renew.

Customer services

I have subscribed for the Elite boosted service lifetime package, but due to the fact that in the UAE it is difficult to keep the VPN working since the ISP are very good in blocking them, the system stopped functioning as promised, after nearly 3 weeks of trying to fix the problem and failed, the custmor servise made a full refund without any deduction for the 2 months I have used it previously and was working fine!
I do think they were very professional and stood by their promise, only wish they could find a real solution to the problem!

Great App. I love the new interface

Hotspot Shield is a life saver for constant traveler. I would have to deal with Google and other browser in the country of destination. Not great if you don’t know the language. Banking would be a serious issue. Forget about watching a movie in your language. Google would lead to site in the country of destination. It seems that expats and constant traveler are being forgotten by the internet processes ie browsers etc.. Fortunately there is Hotspot Shield. The company behind it works very hard to keep it up to date, I love the new interface.
