Catch of The Day - Hotspot Shield - 10/20/2011


Maintain your anonymity and protect your privacy while accessing free wi-fi hotspots with the Internet connection protector Hotspot Shield.

Hotspot Shield, from AnchorFree, is a must-have utility for anybody who uses public wi-fi in cafes, hotels, airports, etc. By encrypting your traffic, it protects you from spying and other intrusions while your computer is connected to the Internet.


What Hotspot Shield does:

  • Works with any browser.
  • Ensures you are private, secure, and anonymous online.
  • Secures your web session, data, online shopping, and personal information with HTTPS encryption.
  • Protects you from online identity theft.
  • Hides your IP address for your online privacy.
  • Lets you access all content without censorship, bypass firewalls.
  • Protects you from snoopers at wi-fi hotspots.


Hotspot Shield works on wireless and wired connections. Both Mac and Windows versions are available, both free and paid. The paid version runs faster, is ad free, and provides unlimited bandwidth.

Note: I have been using the free version on my MacBook with Safari for a week with no apparent speed or any other kinds of issues. The free version does always open a page from AnchorFree with links to several video sources, but this is the only minor inconvenience I've noticed.
