Hotspot Shield by AnchorFree

Free security and privacy product ensures your anonymity while on-line.

Public networks (both wired and wireless) are great. After all, what would life be without connecting while at airports, hotels and coffee shops? However, the danger to your personal data exists even if you connect to a fee based open network. Your passwords, credit card numbers, and any data you send can be seen and associated with you personally. Standard antivirus software won't protect you as this threat is on the network, not your laptop or iPhone.

That's why AnchorFree is pleased to offer Hotspot Shield. Our application keeps your Internet connection secure and anonymous on public networks.

100% Security Through a VPN

Hotspot Shield creates a virtual private network (VPN) between your laptop or iPhone and our Internet gateway. This impenetrable tunnel prevents snoopers and hackers from viewing your email, instant messages, credit card information or anything else you send over the network. Hotspot Shield security application is free to download, employs the latest VPN technology, and is easy to install and use. So go ahead - Get behind the Shield - Try Hotspot Shield today!

Hotspot Shield runs on:

  • Windows Vista
  • Windows XP
  • Windows 2000
  • Mac OS X (10.5 Leopard)
  • Mac OS X (10.4 Tiger)


  1. Does this work at a Fon hotspot? As you know, Fon's firmware makes no facility for VPN. Fon decided that Cher impersonators and Mexican Waves were more important. ;)

  2. Yeah, it works. In the process it tries to install toolbars for IE and firefox and then when ever it runs it puts an ad banner across the top of your web browser, but thats about it.
