Listed below are websites that are commonly only available from certain country. Meaning if trying to access the content of a UK geo-restricted website from outside UK, you’ll be shown a message warning you that you are not allowed to access the content. However with Hotspot Shield Elite Virtual Location feature you can now choose the country from where you would like to connect to access sites and instantly regain access to your favorite content.

In the following table, we have gathered some examples of websites that are “supposedly” only available from certain countries. For instance is only available for people browsing the internet from Australia. So if you wish to access it from outside Australia, you can do so with Hotspot Shield Elite. You will need to turn on the app and make sure you are signed in into your Elite account so you get access to all Virtual Locations. Once signed in to Elite, all you have to do is select the AU (Australia) Virtual Location, make sure Hotspot Shield VPN is activated (connected) and then you will be able to access the website you want without any issue.

      Hi George,
      Thanks for asking. The answer is yes! If you have an active account with HBO Go or HBO Now, and are traveling abroad or located in a country where HBO does not offer its services yet, you can follow the step by step instructions here to use Hotspot Shield to get access to HBO’s content from any country.
      Hope this helps! Best regards,

      The answer is no, not all our US IP are coming from San Jose. We have other as well on the East coast. As a user, you cannot pick the geo location of your IP within a country though you can pick your IP address location at a country level with an Elite Membership.
      Hope this answers your question.

    I would like to know how is it possible to change ip all day along withe the same country without using a ip twice but always having new ip.
    For example I choose ip from Australia and change ip after ip but I don’t want to use the same ip twice but still want to use ip from Australia.
    Is it possible ? If not , is there a possibility to add it in a future update so in a day when changing ip in a same country we ne ver use one that we already used?

      Hi Sophie, Thanks for your feedback. To change your IP address without changing your Virtual Location, you can simply disconnect and reconnect your Hotspot Shield VPN. By doing this, the Hotspot Shield app will assign you a different IP address. To make sure you get a new IP address you can check via after each reconnection. I hope this helps! Enjoy the rest of your week.
