Is my information encrypted if I use the Basic version of Hotspot Shield?

Yes, all connections are encrypted. One does not need to have a paid Premium subscription to have your information encrypted.

It is important to note, that we use industry-standard SSL encryption and do NOT modify or customize the encryption in any way.
