Hotspot Shield 2.8 for Android and Tablet

The application detects over 3 million malware websites from Hotspot Shield web servers and blocks them instantaneously before they enter your device whether it is a PC, Mac, iPhone or an Android. Hotspot Shield also replaces your device IP address with its own address, thus hiding the real location from anonymous web users.

Wi-Fi Hotspot Security:

Most of the public hotspots are unencrypted posing severe problems to the user identity. At the time of online transactions, downloading or instant messaging, Hotspot Shield encrypts the network traffic with strong encryption algorithm and prevents cybercriminals from spying or disturbing your internet activity. As a result, you can browse internet secretly via Wi-Fi without any worry and hassle.

Hotspot Shield 2.8 – PC Connection Interface

Access Blocked Web Content:

Places like at school, university, office or the library, some websites are blocked by the network administrator. The administrator restricts in accessing Facebook, Gmail, YouTube, and gaming websites. Hotspot Shield could easily unblock these restrictions and gain access. It passes the network bypass filters and firewalls and authorizes the blocked web content.

Hotspot Shield can even unblock certain government websites which are restricted based on location. You can detour Geo-restriction settings and browser uncensored content you wish to.

If you want to have advanced unblocking bandwidth compression, anti-phishing features, go for Hotspot Shield ELITE subscription which is $29.95 with no ads, dedicated customer support, cloud-based malware protection, and virtual location based TV viewing.

Avast Internet Security 8.0 - Scanning


The performance level is high but scored just below “great” because while installing on infected PCs the number of hours required for remote control support is more. The Anti-phishing, firewall and spam filter accuracy has also been low. But the significant Sandboxing engine is strong enough to provide better protection than other internet security softwares.

Avast Internet Security 8.0 - Market Products

Compared with Avast Premier version, the internet security version lacks only few features like Software Updater, AccessAnywhere and other advanced privacy tools. The Avast’s free edition is more or less the same as Avast Internet Security 8.0. But the isolated online transaction takes an extra point over its free edition. Download Avast Internet Security 8.0 full version for $49.99 or try a 30-day subscription.
