World’s fastest VPN, verified by experts
Most of the leading VPN providers all use the same antiquated open source technology. Hotspot Shield is different. We built our own patented Hydra protocol from the ground up, and it delivers a far more consistent VPN connection — not to mention speeds over 2x faster than the nearest competition when connected to long-distance servers. In fact, Speedtest found Hotspot Shield actually increased download speed by more than 26.2% compared to when not using a VPN, while all other providers decreased speed by at least 42.5%.
