If you want to install and use the HotspotShield VPN & Wifi Proxy app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type HotspotShield VPN & Wifi Proxy in the search bar and press Search. Click on HotspotShield VPN & Wifi Proxy application icon. A window of HotspotShield VPN & Wifi Proxy on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Continuously improving! Excellent product and customer service

    I have been using this VPN for 4 years and it is a solid, trouble-free app. Rarely have I ever had trouble connecting or configuring. When I was out of the country and found myself locked out of the US websites I wanted to visit, I installed the app and was on the sites within 5 minutes. I use HotSpot Shield on my iPhone, Mac and a Windows laptop. Knowing I can trust that each of them is automatically protected when they are used in public settings is definitely reassuring. The only thing I have had difficulty doing is tethering either laptop to my iPhone as the data transfer rate drops significantly. Customer Service was quick to respond that the app is not designed to support tethering at this time. I rarely write reviews but this is a great app and worth the couple minutes it took to write this review.
  • Works most of the time, some minor issues

    This works a majority of the time, with some minor issues that you can fix yourself if needed. Sometimes the VPN takes forever to connect, or secures your LTE/3g connection instead of the WiFi, even when you’re connected to the WiFi. Other times it secures the connection, but the download and upload are extremely slow and never improve. If any of this happens, usually a reinstall does the trick. One other issue is when you walk away from the WiFi you have secured, it usually glitches out the app and your network in general. It usually fixes itself, but if not, a reinstall or network setting reset fixes this issue. One thing I’d like to see with this app is a way to cancel a connection you’re attempting. Sometimes I accidentally reconnect after disconnecting and I have to wait for it to reconnect again before I can get out.
  • A constant battle while in China

    The VPN worked fine at home in the US, but not while I actually needed it. In Shanghai and Qingdao I needed to use the VPN for accessing any websites, translator apps, etc. that I could normally from home. It took me at least 10 minutes to get it to work every time, closing and restarting the app, trying from different servers *if* it connected, and often being told I had no internet (with three full WiFi bars) or that they were diagnosing problems & to try again later... which still didn’t work after 24 hours. Overall I was lucky if it even worked at all, let alone for longer than 5 minutes. It would often drop me from my WiFi as it “connected”, repeatedly, and caused me to go back through the whole process mentioned above every five minutes (or less!) I had success with this VPN only twice for 30 minutes; but it was hell to get it there. To think I payed $13 for this kind of hassle. What a waste.
  • Drops Connection

    By Itsyaboydjteach
    When it works this VPN barely hits my performance and I trust their payment model enough to believe they aren’t selling my data. That being said, the VPN itself is so unstable I wonder how much security I’m actually gaining. Two issues here: 1) The VPN randomly drops connection when online, and though it resets, I am obviously losing VPN status which I assume allows the sites I’m visiting to log my IP and activity while it’s down. 2) It’s hard to turn off. There are obviously circumstances where a VPN isn’t needed or desired, especially a free one. However, when I try to turn it off, this VPN often switches back on by itself and I cannot get it to remain off. In fact this is my second download. I deleted it the first time to see if that would fix the issue. However I see that I’m not the only one having that issue. Pro tip: don’t rely on this if you have something truly sensitive flowing over your traffic.

    Users beware, they will charge you right from the day one even if you opt for a trial version. Think twice before you download this App that takes too much control of your phone.
