Why I Am Having Hotspot Shield Not Working Error ?There can be several reasons which causes this error to occur but I have mentioned some most common's one here :
- You might be having two or more VPN software installed on your system. At that time all these virtual private networks tries to configure their settings according to them but one or more VPN fails to set up its setting on your system. At that time this error is shown up.
- You might be having a firewall which is not allowing Hotspot Shield to access traffic. Always be sure that your firewall is allowing HSS to access internet and traffic.
- Sometime your antivirus software doesn't allow HSS to access traffic then HSS will show this error. Always be sure that your antivirus is allowing hotspot shield to access internet.
How To Fix Hotspot Shield Not Working ProblemThis is a simple tip which you can use in order to run your HSS properly.
- First of all download and install Hotspot Shield on your system and then it will open Hotspot Shield website in your browser, just copy the address from the address bar and save in anywhere on your system say Notepad.
