Best VPNs by category
Trust.Zone offers an exceptionally secure VPN service that smoothly bypasses Netflix’s tough restrictions. Hotspot Shield, on the other hand, focuses on providing a reliable service that’s secure and easy to use on all platforms.
Trust.Zone offers an unrestricted P2P service that allows you to download torrents without leaving a trace on its servers. Hotspot Shield does not allow torrenting on its network, so we strongly recommend against attempting to use the service for this purpose.
Trust.Zone provides users with a very secure Windows app that features 256-bit encryption, tracking protection, and support for the OpenVPN and L2TP VPN protocols. Hotspot Shield also features a dedicated Windows app that helps you defeat ISP throttling and includes malware and tracking protection.
Some of the best features of Hotspot Shield’s dedicated Android app are malware protection, third-party tracking prevention, and protection against wi-fi hacking. Although Trust.Zone offers an honest no-logs policy and strong encryption for Android users, it does not have a dedicated app for the platform and so would need to be manually integrated into your device.
By providing a MacOS app with a dedicated streaming feature, malware protection, and unique Catapult Hydra technology that optimizes server speeds by compressing data, Hotspot Shield offers a very complete VPN service for MacOS. Meanwhile, Trust.Zone can be easily configured using the MacOS integration tool and features access to dedicated IP addresses for streaming.
Hotspot Shield has a dedicated iOS app with a user-friendly interface and wi-fi protection. Trust.Zone does not offer any apps for iOS devices, but can be easily configured manually using the iOS built-in configuration tool or the universal OpenVPN app.
Trust.Zone provides an exceptional service for the USA, with dedicated servers capable of unblocking Netflix and similar US websites at high speed. Hotspot Shield also has a reliable US service that unblocks Netflix and other American content providers.
