Provides secure, private, anonymous browsing and circumvents browsing restrictions based on location or government restrictions

AnchorFree, the global leader in consumer security, privacy and Internet freedom, today announced availability of its award-winning Hotspot Shield VPN on the Amazon Kindle Fire. Already the No. 1 security and privacy app on iPhone® and iPad® devices, now Amazon Kindle users have the most popular VPN service in the world to protect online privacy, secure Internet communications and access content.

"As recent news reports have revealed, hacking and data tracking are increasingly prevalent on mobile devices and tablets as their use continues to grow exponentially," said David Gorodyansky, founder and CEO of AnchorFree. "With the addition of Hotspot Shield for Kindle, we provide secure and private access to the world's information to users across a variety of platforms - from iPhones and iPads to Android devices and PCs."

Features of Hotspot Shield for Kindle include:

  • Unblocks any website - YouTube, Facebook and others such as Hulu, Netflix and BBC where unavailable
  • Unrestricts access to mobile VoIP and messaging services such as Skype and Viber anywhere
  • Secures mobile and public Wi-Fi connections with HTTPS encryption
  • Prevents hackers from stealing private information
  • Enables private and anonymous Web browsing
  • Protects against malware form a database of over 3.5 million suspected domains
  • Compatible with Kindle Fire HDX and HD

With more than 200 million global downloads, Hotspot Shield has seen triple-digit mobile growth in the past 12 months and has been installed by more than 21 million smartphone users. Nearly one-third of Hotspot Shield's monthly activity now comes from its mobile app, which was released for iPhones in November 2011 and on Android TM devices in May 2012. In addition to privacy, security and access, Hotspot Shield, which compresses data, saved users more than 220 million megabytes (MB) of mobile data usage in 2013.

AnchorFree's Hotspot Shield is the most trusted VPN service in the world, protecting users' IP addresses, encrypting all Internet communications and preventing hackers from stealing sensitive data while using unsecured Wi-Fi networks. In addition to secure and private browsing, Hotspot Shield VPN provides access to domestic Internet content while travelling abroad and unblocks websites that may be restricted by governments or companies. Users can increase productivity and remove browsing obstacles by accessing local servers when overseas.

Hotspot Shield is available for PC, Mac, iOS, Android and now Kindle as free and Elite premium versions ($29.95/year). For a free download of Hotspot Shield visit: www.hotspotshield.com.
