Mac DMG: Quitting Hotspot Shield

Mac DMG Start Guide

Quitting Hotspot Shield

You must pause protection first to exit or quit Hotspot Shield.

To exit Hotspot Shield completely:

  1. Click Pause protection.
  2. At the top-left, click X to close the window.
  3. Then click Quit to confirm.
Important: Clicking ( - ) will just minimize Hotspot Shield to the Dock, not turn off or pause Hotspot Shield. Signing out also will not turn off or pause Hotspot Shield. You will be signed out of your Premium account, but Hotspot Shield will still be active in Free Mode.
