Current non-compatible devices

We’re working on it, but currently, Hotspot Shield is not compatible with the following devices:

  • Gaming consoles (Nintendo, Xbox, Playstation, etc.)
  • Kindle tablets
  • Kodi
  • SmartTVs that are not Android TV(Apple TV, Samsung, etc.)

Please note that although the devices above are not compatible, you can still have Hotspot Shield on your Router which will, therefore, cover your entire network as your public IP will change to one of ours once you are connected to Hotspot Shield.
