Hotspot Shield

Monday, November 3rd, 2008 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Hotspot Shield

I tell you what, I’m tired of always getting this message when I try to watch a video on Web sites like YouTube: “This video is not available in your country.” What a nightmare!

I’m also wary of the fact that most Web sites I use have my IP address on file, which can identify me right down to the city I live in and the ISP I use. Even when you use a wireless network in a public place, you’re not always guaranteed safety. So, what can you do?

Well, a piece of software called Hotspot Shield takes care of it all! Since I’ve installed Hotspot Shield, I’ve been able to use all of the country restricted Web sites and wireless network security is no longer a problem for me! Here’s how you can get it too:

1.) First of all, click here to go to the main Web site.

2.) Then click on the Download Hotspot Shield button.

3.) Next, just go ahead and install it.

4.) Now, go to Start, All Programs, Hotspot Shield and then select Hotspot Shield Launch.

5.) Hotspot Shield will then open in your browser window. Once it’s set up, it should look something like this:

6.) When you’re ready, you can start browsing away! Occasionally, there will be a banner ad at the top of the page, but you can use an ad blocker or simply click on the Close button if it bothers you too much.

7.) When you’re ready to stop, simply hit Disconnect. It’s that easy. Enjoy!
