Despite a high profile among VPN consumers, HideMyAss is poorly regarded by those in the know. A big reason for this is its history of betraying users to the authorities. That said, HMA offers a huge server network with servers in over 190 countries worldwide. For this reason almost alone, HideMyAss may still prove a valuable service for some.
- Huge number of servers located just about everywhere
- Android app is good
- Fast servers are available although some trail ans error may be needed
- US Netflix available
- Secure OpenVPN encryption
- No IP leaks
Hotspot Shield Elite is a premium VPN service that exists alongside Hotspot Shield’s free VPN. The premium VPN is a fast service that is great for unblocking censored content or geo-restricted websites. It even unblocks US Netflix!

- Seven-day free trial
- Additional browser extension for Chrome and Firefox
- Easy-to-use app
- Fast connection speeds
- Free version available
