The free version is ad-supported with limited functionality...if you don't want to see ads then you will need to spend some money.

Hi there! Hotspot Shield is actually cool. I've a lot of friends telling me to try Hotspot Shield. You can try the free version or the elite version of it. You can check out the website bestvpnservicemag.com to see a list of vpn together with their reviews and descriptions. Hope this helps!  :)

I don't mean to be obnoxious or rude....the mere opinion that "Hotspot Shield is actually 'pretty cool'" and "friends telling you to try Hotspield Shield" are not really important or of much of a concern. The concern should be how effective and efficient it is. Moreover, its functionality (and the judgment of its functionality) is the main issue.

@quitman7 you are right that the HSS free version is ad-supported with limited functionality..

Hotspot Shield is best free VPN service... I had been using HSS for a long time but now I am using Zenmate its free and no ad-supported 

Though Hotspot shield Elite version still really beneficial to use

Hotspot shield is one of the most used VPN services that is used to bypass country censorship and open all blocked websites through encrypted and secure tunnels and it also offers the strongest protection for the Wi-Fi security and applications this means you can easily access public Wi-Fi Hotspots with no worries of been tracked down.

I think it's not so bad and not so good also, I used to use cactusvpn and now I'm using waselpro, both are good.

According to my personal experience with VPNs for online anonymity and bypassing firewalls without being detected with DPI, you need to mask your OpenVPN connection with SSH tunneling to get encrypted connection to get free access to the internet so I prefer using bVPN Service. Really it worth to try the free period.
