How Hotspot Shield automatically finds the best VPN server for you
When you connect to any Hotspot Shield VPN server location, our technology automatically selects the best VPN server for you. Since Hotspot Shield uses a single transport protocol — our proprietary Hydra technology — you never have to fuss with multiple configurations.
Hydra optimizes the connection based on your requirements — be it for gaming, streaming, downloading, P2P, or browsing. The Hydra protocol is our “secret sauce,” a key reason why AV-Test named Hotspot Shield the #1 VPN for speed, security, and ease-of-use.
Why VPN server locations matter
Unrestricted access, from anywhere
By connecting through one of Hotspot Shield’s 3200+ VPN servers in 70+ countries, you can browse the internet like a local. If you reside in the United Kingdom, for example, but want to access US content — such as your favorite streaming services — all you have to do is connect to Hotspot Shield’s “United States” server. Your device will then be given a US IP address, which will allow you to access content from that country.
Manually select your location
While Hotspot Shield’s Hydra protocol seamlessly optimizes your connection using the best available VPN server, there are times when you might want to manually select an alternate server location within a specific country, like to avoid a sporting blackout. Where available, Hotspot Shield lets you select a server on a city level. If you’re in Chicago but want to connect through a VPN server located in Los Angeles, for example, you can do so with just a click of a button.
Check your IP address
When you connect to a VPN server located abroad, your device’s real IP address is switched to an IP address from that country. Use our handy tool to check your device’s IP address.
