With more than 200 million global downloads, Hotspot Shield has seen
triple-digit mobile growth in the past 12 months and has been installed

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
