Hide my Ass is a really cool service. They’re not expensive, and their VPN is very user friendly. They’ve got a clean design to their site which makes it easy to navigate. One thing I hate about VPN sites like Black Logic and Secure VPN is that it’s hard to find out what’s going on in there. How much is the VPN? Can I use it on my Mac? Is it compatible with Windows 7? Should I use PPTP or L2TP on my iPhone? There are so many questions for a new user, especially for someone who hasn’t used a VPN before.
This is why Hide My Ass is cool. It’s up there with my favorites (12vpn, Astrill, and iVPN) as far as user compatibility goes.
One big problem though – they’re blocked.
Ok, not all the time, but a lot of the time. They’ve got the SSL/OpenVPN needed by users in China, but you can’t get to it if the site is blocked.
What would I suggest?
I think Hide My Ass is a cool VPN service. If you’re planning on coming to China, get your VPN set up with them before you go. If you’re hear and on the off-chance they’re not blocked for a while, you can check them out. Hide My Ass won’t do you wrong.
But if HMA continues to be blocked, there are lots of other services featured at the site that aren’t blocked – Astrill, 12vpn, iVPN
