A VPN software or service is mostly used to unblock Facebook and watch multimedia content on Hulu. Actually Hulu does not allow to watch its videos and other stuff in most of the countries because of copyright compulsions. On the other hand, not all but most of the internet users use a VPN to protect their online privacy and stay away from hackers.
As far as Hotspot Shield free is concerned, It would not be wrong to say that Hotspot Shield was used to be a very popular VPN solution to unblock a blocked website and alter the real IP address when there was no good competitor in VPN industry. Why I said? Hotspot Shield was used to be a very popular VPN. Because Hotspot Shield is no more a popular program to unblock Facebook at schools, workplaces and at other places where Facebook is not allowed to use. Annoying pop-up ads and data limits are the main reasons for its unpopularity.

I have compiled a list of 5 free Hotspot Shield alternatives. All alternatives of Hotspot Shield are tested by me. While testing, I did not find anything suspicious or harmful in all of these free services as a working Hotspot Shield alternatives to Facebook, YouTube, PayPal and others. Let’s have a quick look.
Spotflux is a free, cross platform and good alternative to Hotspot Shield. You may see its ads, but its ads don’t bother you as compare to Hotspot Shield, where you will have to bear annoying pop up ads.
