Unblock restricted sites and apps

First, make sure your VPN is connected and that the key icon appears on the top of your device’s screen. Once you are connected, then you can simply open the app you’d like to stream content on or watch content from your browser. Hotspot Shield will automatically allow the app or browser to display the content from the virtual location you chose without any restrictions.

For example, To watch content from the US:

  • Connect Hotspot Shield to the United States virtual location
  • Open the website\app you'd like to watch content
  • Enjoy your favorite programs

If you'd like to watch content from a country other than the US, you need to be signed in to your Premium account and connected to that country's virtual location before streaming content.
