Will not work on Mac, Waste of money.

Disappointing and frustrating (1.4.3)
12/24/2016 12:42:00 AM 1/5 By NYCdude10
HSS would not connect no matter what I did. I went through all their tutorials, in addition to all other possible soltuions to fix their connectivity issues, but nothing worked. My Mac is running on OS Sierra 10.12.2 and HSS would NOT connect at all. Their customer-service responds with a troubleshoot link that is basically useless. I wish it was only just their connectivity issues, but other issues I had with the app still remain unfixed weeks after I initially reported these issues to customer service. Therefore, I will ask for a refund, and I’ve already switched to a different VPN service. Thanks.

It is not Free!! (1.4.3)
12/23/2016 2:53:00 PM 1/5 By Imzich
Even the trail version charge you 11$

Useless on Mac…. (1.4.3)
12/23/2016 8:43:00 AM 1/5 By Drbueno
Terrible app on a Mac. Don’t waste your time. It won’t work or slow your internet down to bytes per second download. it’s absurd!

Doesn’t work on my iMac (1.4.3)
12/22/2016 1:50:00 PM 1/5 By FrustratedinColumbia
Tried it on my iMac running Sierra. It will install but won’t run, won’t open, won’t do anything.

a little buggy but its ok (1.4.3)
12/13/2016 9:12:00 PM 4/5 By Jack safdarian
By far this version does what it says . The speed is ok too

Hidden on dark menu bar (1.4.3)
12/13/2016 1:11:00 AM 3/5 By moe.duffdude
seems the app is [re]designed to work on the default white theme --- which I'm sure the developers will update in no time

Won’t connect (1.3.2)
12/8/2016 7:59:00 AM 2/5 By JDTSch
I have used Hotspot for two months with good results. Now it simply will not connect and I cannot even get connected to their support site. What gives????

Bad App (1.3.2)
11/25/2016 9:51:00 AM 1/5 By CrAzYMisH
This app does not work most of the time, after purchasing elite membership it keeps asking me to sign in again and again even after paying, when i contacted customer service the were useless and only repeat the same, the problem with the app is that after the last update it does not work and and this company has terrible customer service, they only want to take your money and nothing else

Very Good Customer Service (1.3.2)
11/6/2016 11:22:00 AM 5/5 By poder4
I had recently purchaseed an elite subscription to maximize the benefits. However for whatever reason the transaction did not go through. I put in a report through the support website and my ticket was answered almost immediately. The rep solved the problem really quickly and also gave my some bonus time for the subscription! Very good service, will be sticking with this for a while.

Please Update to v1.4.0 (1.3.2)
11/1/2016 3:30:00 AM 2/5 By DJ20124
I am An Elite member and this app needs to be updated to the new version v1.4.0 to work with OS X/Version 10.12.1 I was sent a link to download the dmg but that link is not responding

Excessive charge without my authorization (1.3.2)
10/30/2016 2:02:00 PM 1/5 By Seacho
I used the app a few time and it works great. The problem before I buy it I’m expecting to pay $4.99 a month. But, when you install the app, the system tricked you to install 2 subscriptions that costs $4.99 + $11.99 per month. I’ve just used it for more than a month and they have already charged me for three months of about $29. I’ve just cancelled the subscriptions. This is a very funky business. Already deleted the app.

Not Free for Desktop Version (1.3.2)
10/28/2016 11:33:00 AM 3/5 By StarryStarryStarryNight
Hotspot Shield is NOT free for the desktop version. Hey, we need a free desktop version, too. Thanks!

Horrible app, waste of time (1.3.2)
10/25/2016 8:15:00 PM 1/5 By mandm1!
This showed up high in the ranks and I don’t understand why. Install the VPN profiles and had difficulty connecting, never actually connected. Other VPN apps at least connect but stability is another thing. This app also only features a 7 day trial, bogus! Then requires a subscription. SKIP!!

Peace of Mind (1.3.2)
10/15/2016 5:54:00 PM 5/5 By 7A Jake
Using public wifi was always a cause for concern because of obvious security concerns. I restricted my use to routine communications and avoided any sensitive online work like banking. Now with Hotspot Shield that concern is gone away and I can make more productive use of public wifi in airports, coffee shopps or my car dealership’s waiting room (where I am now). In my experience the application is reliable and has not crashed or slowed down my internet connections.

Fairly good VPN (1.3.2)
10/8/2016 4:00:00 PM 4/5 By lensart
Hotspot Shield works fairly well for me. From time to time the connection drops, but re-establishes automatically. The number of available tunnel locations has increased dramatically from when I first began using it. The only complaint I have is that the native OSX application constantly interrupts me to rate it at 5 stars. Okay, now I have rated it FOUR stars for being a good program with an irritating habit of demanding a high rating.

doesn’t work (1.3.2)
10/3/2016 7:28:00 PM 1/5 By rdd23
I am in Romania trying to VPN the USA. This sheild insists that I am in the United Arab Em.and bring everything up in Arabic— which is completely and totally useless. I am cancelling my 7 day trail unless I can get some genius in this company to respond — so far— no response… they are probabaly sitting in Rihad laughing their butts off.

App doesn’t work on my Mac 99% of the time, in Abu Dhabi. (1.3.2)
9/26/2016 12:23:00 PM 1/5 By Edward.Sanford
This App do not work 90 percent of the time for me here in Abu Dhabi. It also slows my Mac down. I cant even open a page when its on.

ممتاز (1.3.2)
9/16/2016 3:00:00 PM 3/5 By al3blany
ممتاز يعمل بشكل جيد جدا

not free (1.3.2)
9/16/2016 9:42:00 AM 1/5 By 여자랍니다_lady
this has to be paid per a month after a trial period

WORTH (1.3.2)
9/10/2016 1:13:00 PM 5/5 By Afterthedustsettles
If there is a good WIFI connection this app works the way it should. Worth the money spent.

It doesn’t remember my account (1.3.2)
9/10/2016 6:32:00 AM 3/5 By pet-fish-lover
I’m a paying customer. After upgrading to latest version recently I have to login to my account every time - super annoying. Other than that it works fine.

Just realized i could download this on appstore (1.3.2)
9/4/2016 3:40:00 AM 5/5 By Tester 3d
I used this on my iphone and wanted to use similar service on my mac, but spent days trying to find one, until one day i realize that there’s a little something called the appstore!! Downloaded it and now i am free!

Trial lies (1.3.2)
9/1/2016 12:40:00 AM 3/5 By wutacrock
I would this give 4 stars, but it lied saying it will give 7 day trial when it gives u till the end of the end when u first install the software. Overall it does work.
