AnchorFree Extends Hotspot Shield to Android Users


MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, May 31, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) —
AnchorFree, the global leader in consumer security and internet
freedom, today announced the availability of its popular Hotspot
Shield security, privacy and open Web access solution for Android
devices. Hotspot Shield has more than 60 million total desktop
downloads worldwide, and is already the most popular mobile security
solution in the Apple App Store. Hotspot Shield for Android allows
users to browse the Web free from privacy and security concerns,
access all internet content from anywhere in the world and save money
on their data plans.

Within the last year, nearly every major mobile carrier has increased
its rates or put limits on the amount of data users can consume under
their current plans. Hotspot Shield for Android functions as a
bandwidth compression service, allowing users to more than double the
amount of Web content they can use under their mobile data plans. In
addition to the skyrocketing costs of mobile data plans, smartphone
users face increasing threats to their mobile security. Android
malware grew by 400 percent in the first half of 2011, according to a
recent study by security company BullGuard, yet smartphone users
remain largely unaware of the security software available to protect
their mobile devices.

Hotspot Shield protects users from over 3.5 million malware, phishing
and spam threats.

“Hotspot Shield for Android provides an easy way for people to secure
their apps and browsing on Android devices, as well as increase the
amount of mobile data they can use under their current plans,” said
David Gorodyansky, co-founder and CEO of AnchorFree. “We anticipate
becoming the default solution for Android users to secure their
internet browsing and communications. Hotspot Shield is already the
most popular security app on the iPhone, and we expect even larger
growth and popularity on Android.”

Hotspot Shield is available as a free and Elite premium version for
Android. The following features are incorporated into both versions:


        
        --  Security: Wi-Fi and 3G encryption protects both apps and browsing
        --  Privacy: Private browsing, identity theft protection, protection from
            third-party tracking
        --  Freedom: Unfettered access to all Web content from anywhere
        --  Malware Protection: Protection against more than one million threats
            including malware, phishing and spam. Elite users receive heightened
            protection against an additional 2.5 million online threats.
        --  Data Savings: Bandwidth compression more than doubles the amount of
            Web content users can consume on their Android devices and saves them
            money on their mobile data bills. (Elite only)
        
        


Hotspot Shield’s VPN technology encrypts a user’s entire Web session —
turning all HTTP sites into HTTP(S) — so that every website visited
and every mobile app is as secure and private as a banking site. To
install Hotspot Shield, download the app from Google Play, boot it up
on the home screen and select a payment plan. Once installed, Hotspot
Shield will run quietly in the background, protecting all
applications and Web-browsing, and saving users money by increasing
the amount of data they can use under their current mobile data
plans.

Hotspot Shield VPN for Android is now available for download in
Google Play. Users may download the free version of the app or
purchase the premium Elite version, which is available for
$1.99/month or $19.99/year. A unique payment method also allows users
to complete advertising offers in exchange for credits to use the
premium app, Hotspot Shield Elite, at no cost.
