What does Expat Shield allow me to do?

With Expat Shield you have the ability to connect your Windows computer to our servers in United Kingdom. Once connected to our VPN in UK you will be able to watch access web services like BBC, SkyGo and iTV from outside of the United Kingdom. 

Is it free?

Expat Shield is free because it is supported by advertisements. Thus, while using Expat Shield, you will see extra ads when browsing the web. It allows us to keep this service running and have Expat Shield free for anyone to use.

I want other virtual locations!

Expat Shield only provides the United Kingdom as its virtual location. If you would like more virtual locations, you can read about our new product - Hotspot Shield - which allows you to choose between a number of different locations such as Germany, Canada, USA, UK, Japan and Australia.
