About Us

AnchorFree enables millions of users with free privacy and security online. Our Hotspot Shield application
secures all online transactions; such as shopping and browsing the web, enabling all your online web activities to go through a Virtual Private Network. This creates a personal secure tunnel for each user and enables user online activities (such as searches & websites visited & personally identifiable information) to always stay private. Hotspot Shield is 100% FREE and is sponsored by advertisers. Our media platform enables brands to communicate with our tech savvy affluent audience through video and display advertising on hundreds of millions of domains. We enable contextual targeting for advertisers, while keeping user identity 100% private, even from ourselves.

Our mission is to drive universal online privacy and security for every user globally.

AnchorFree is a venture funded private company located in Silicon Valley. Our engineers develop the most innovative technologies to enable users to stay secure & private online. Our sales team provides cutting edge solutions to advertisers and agencies. Our team, our advisors, and our investors bring together thought leadership that impacts millions of users all over the world.

We believe that everybody deserves to be secure & private online. There should not be a cost for it, it should be free. Just like having a door and a lock at home, you should have protection when surfing the web, buying things online, communicating with friends, searching on major search engines. Every person’s online activities are their business and should be controlled by them, by users of the web, not by third parties.

AnchorFree is dedicated to driving new technologies that will put users in control of their online identity.

Our advertisers work with us to reach smart tech savvy consumers through innovative solutions that give advertisers reach to an audience of decision makers with disposable incomes that choose to protect themselves online. Our advertising solutions enable solid engagement and reach on some of the most premium domains online, while keeping users in control of their online privacy.

The day when most users in the world will use Hotspot Shield; things like identity theft, credit card theft, snooping ISP’s, and online censorship will be eliminated forever. The AnchorFree Team is committed to making this happen.
