How can I get around blocked sites to download Hotspot Shield?

Penny newell January 7, 2012

I want to download Hotspot Sheild. However I live in the middle east and have to go through a proxy. As soon as I click on any link for any VPN download it says the site is blocked. Any ideas how I can go around this is layman’s terms?

    Insert moral comment here...

    As Jay said, We can't give you much advise. 

    Even blocked through a proxy though... that is some real deal censorship.

    I'm pretty sure using encryption without permission in the middle east is unlawful (source The Guardian), if that's the case, we can't help you. Even if you were to successfully download Hotspot shield, it wouldn't be able to connect to its servers to forward your traffic through.
