Release 3.32 for Windows 1/17/2014

We have released version 3.32 for Windows as installer for new users.

New version introduces a few major UI and Functionality changes.

Now Hotspot Shield for Windows has 2 Modes available:

I. Maximal Mode: 

The conventional “Maximal” mode keeps Hotspot Shield VPN on to give you the privacy, anonymity and security all the time.

  - has the same functionality as previous Hotspot Shield versions (ability to switch virtual locations, malware protection)



II. Auto Mode:

This is a brand new way of protecting you only when it’s necessary. We automatically detect when you are connected to an unsecured Wi-Fi, then turn Hotspot Shield VPN on. You don’t need to worry about turning it on and off every time when changing your wifi/physical locations. We’ll take care of that for you.

  - keeps you protected when you are connected via unsecured (public without password) wifi; 

  - does not provide virtual location options (your real IP will not be hidden); 

  - provides connection at better speed; 


When do you want to use Auto Mode?

We recommend to keep Auto Mode ON at all times to keep your browsing session, private information & e-mailing activities secure. When you need to use VPN features and access US, UK, Australian or Japanese content, then, please, switch to Maximal Mode.
