As a web proxy software, the essence of Hide My IP is to hide (by changing) your real IP, it has two major design intentions:
Access censored or blocked websites in your country
Protect your online privacy, so as to enjoy private/anonymous web surfing
We all knew that, Lantern just abandoned the most perfect and mature P2P work mechanism it initially used, turned into another normal commercial VPN client with excuse: their IPs were blocked too often, they can't afford. I want to ask - how is it possible for the original P2P mechanism to be blocked? AppNee should say - this commercialized world is never in short of excellent commercial VPN services. So, if Lantern refused to turn around, we could only watch it become a passing meteor. And, it's time to turn to SoftEther VPN again.
Hotspot Shield (short for HSS) is a powerful, acclaimed free VPN (Virtual Private Network) agents automatic searching tool. It's mainly designed to effectively protect personal web surfing security and privacy; as well as breaking through the local network limits to access those blocked, censorship websites (like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, or even Gmail) in some countries.
