Hotspot Shield and VPNSecure are two established VPN providers with very secure apps for all major mobile and desktop platforms. VPN essentials such as 256-bit encryption, support for multiple tunneling protocols, and allowance for multiple simultaneous device connections with one account can be found with either of these providers. Both VPNs also effectively bypass geo-restrictions that many VPNs can’t get past, including those on Netflix USA. These VPNs differ, however, in their refund policies. While Hotspot Shield offers a 45-day money-back guarantee, VPNSecure only competes with a 7-day refund policy. Overaall, Hotspot Shield offers more budget-friendly subscription plans. For torrenting anonymously, only VPNSecure would be suitable, as Hotspot Shield does not allow any P2P activity on its servers. These providers also differ in server network size and coverage, with VPNSecure offering around 77 servers in 47 countries, and Hotspot Shield operating over 2,500 servers across 25+ countries. For additional features, Hotspot Shield offers malware protection and a dedicated streaming profile, whereas VPNSecure competes with built-in SmartDNS functionality.
