Keeping your data safe and privacy protected is an important thing these days, so it's vital that you have good internet security.

That's all well and good when you're surfing at home, but it's a whole different story when using a wireless network when you're out and about. These networks often have very poor security measures in place – if they even have them at all. That means you're at risk, so you'll need some extra protection.

Luckily, there's Hotspot Shield, a free program that provides you with a raft of utilities to preserve your anonymity and encrypt the data traffic you use. It allows you to protect your IP address and surf anonymously, and you can secure your online shopping information thanks to its HTTPS protection.

It also comes with a secure VPN (virtual private network) connection, which reroutes your internet connection through an American proxy. This keeps you anonymous and allows you to bypass the restrictions that are often placed on website usage – for example, it will allow you to access services that are usually unavailable outside the USA, such as Hulu.

Hotspot Shield's Wi-Fi security blocks hackers from gaining access to your personal information, and it also keeps out malware and malicious files, while phishing and spam websites are blocked out completely.
