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. If you want privacy, security (& Pandora when you are outside the US), then look no further. JMHO" – Cster

What's New in Version 2.1.6
* Simpler to resume/pause protection and switch virtual locations
* Faster network speed
* Bug fixes
I have yet to decide if buying elite is worth it or not. But, I like the service and it's pros outweigh its cons. Sure, speed decreases and you might get weird locations when use use location services, but that's what happens with any vpn service. Hotspot shield's team is polite and their pricing is ok. Works easier than other products. Sometimes some apps don't load because there's not an instant internet connection because vpn is trying to connect, but that's apples fault not hotspot shield.
Overall, best vpn service out there.
Bottlenecked by apple's profiles.
For the past few days have had problems with this service. It prompted me to renew my annual subscription, but it was not due for another six weeks. My iOS devices show that the service was expired. The program still works on my Mac since it is still 6 weeks to expiration. But on my iPad and iPhone, the same account shows expired. After several removals and installs of the app, I contacted the company via email. Received an automated reply almost immediately. It's been almost 2 days and no tech support. While this has happened before and it is not a common issue that I have encountered, the service needs improvement. Slow tech support and picky app.
DOESN'T HIJACK ACCOUNTS!
To the people reviewing 1 star because GMail said their accounts were being hijacked, this is because you have no clue how a VPN works. The reason your accounts were accessed on a different IP is because that's exactly the point of the app. That means it works. When an IP from California or Russia accesses your accounts, Google is a little suspicious. I haven't used the app but it's saddening to see the apps rep tarnished by people who don't understand the internet.
