Is Hotspot Shield an anti-virus program?

Hotspot Shield is a personal VPN and is not an anti-virus program. Hotspot Shield encrypts your Internet session from end to end to protect your privacy, but doesn't protect you from downloading bad files to your computer or your device. We recommend getting a reputable anti-virus/anti-malware solution.

You may also want to consider trying our own anti-virus, Aura Antivirus, which can be purchased separately.

For further details, please consult the Aura Antivirus website.
