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! Sadly the VPN is still not the best for privacy, but for streaming, it is truly superb.

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