Hotspot Shield VPN: Use Your iPhone To Browse The Web Anonymously

MOin 13-12-2012

There are numerous websites that do not offer access to Internet users in a specific country. This is usually due to legal issues related with content licensing. But this creates a major problem for people – imagine wanting to check out video tutorials for your college exam preparation but having YouTube blocked in your country. Similarly, there are numerous other situations in which you need to mask your IP address in order to access websites that you cannot get into the normal way.


The masking not only ensures website access but it also ensures your anonymity and maintains your privacy online. Applications that help perform this task are called Virtual Private Network (VPN) apps. For desktop users, one of the best VPN app options is a tool called Hotspot Shield. Fortunately for smart device owners, this app has a smartphone version too.
