Hotspot Shield Elite is the paid version of Hotspot Shield the program that makes your connection more secure and to open restricted websites in your country. The Elite version ensures greater download speed and no advertising. In order to conceal your identity the application routes the data that is sent and received by your computer through a remote server. In this way the IP of the server is assigned to your computer in order to prevent other websites or users to access your real location and personal data.
Hotspot Shield Elite is to create a secure (VPN) between your computer and the Hotspot Shield servers which are in the US so your connection will be American for all purposes and you can access sites like Pandora or Hulu, but only with Hotspot Shield Elite have guaranteed high speeds.
The goal of the application is to provide you with a secure VPN connection without putting you through the process of configuring the connection. All you need is just to enable the secure connection when you are using a new wireless hotspot. And if you think that this is too much effort the app can be configured to automatically start when you connect to a new network. Hotspot Shield Elite is very easy to use the icon turns green when a secure connection is on and red when it is disabled. From the same icon you can change the language to Spanish Hotspot Shield.
