Hola is pretty good. The only problem is that it doesn't support good enough bandwidth for much streaming video, but it *is* free. The only thing that could be much better is that they cut out all the self promoting crap, like asking you to rate, every.damned.time how it worked. Looking at the reviews below, something else is very interesting. HotDogee is a paid disinformation merchant that (check them yourselves) is here to say great things about really, really crooked sites. The more criminal it is the higher he rates it. But he doesn't like hola. In fact, his longest review. Interesting. Oh, yes. Hola does break many malware schemes, breaks botnets and makes it much more difficult to mine personal data and use tracking cookies. No wonder Mr. "I love every Russia crook on the internet" hates it! I wish WOT would review his history and see how obvious what I said is. How can you have any credibility and let him operate. Let me guess. He pays. Yeah, no Russian crook would do that.

This website distributes software used to steal your IP address and put it into their VPN. Allthough the VPN is actually really good for the customer, the free user has their IP stolen. This means that child pornography could go through your IP if you've used Hola!, and anybody that purchases the luminati.io VPN gets ripped off, but for all that, you can send realistic-looking post requests and spam the living hell out of a website of your choice if it is poorly secured (8chan at the time) As for Hola! itself and not the VPN, it just steals your IP so it can be run through their VPN.

see http://adios-hola.org/ Why You Should Immediately Uninstall Hola. Hola is the first community powered (Peer-to-Peer) VPN Beware: Hola VPN turns your PC into an exit node and sells your traffic Hola users have no control over endpoints which is problematic for several reasons. First, it increases the bandwidth usage on the device and reveals your device's IP address to the target service or website which you may not always want. Closing Words If your computer is being used as an exit node, it is your IP address that webmasters, law enforcement or rights holders see when they check server logs. If it is used in attacks or malicious activity, it is you who will be contacted by the authorities or site owners. htxxtp://www.ghacks.net/2015/05/28/beware-hola-vpn-turns-your-pc-into-an-exit-node-and-sells-your-traffic/ htxxtp://hola.org/legal_privacy Pixel Tags: A pixel tag is a type of technology placed on a website in combination with cookie to enable tracking activity on websites.

Hola and Luminati software makes your computer a free proxy for other people. On one hand, this can unblock some sites which only work from certain countries. On another hand, hackers and unknown people all over the world will be using your internet connection. Choice is yours. Cheapest VPN costs less than $10/year. For $25, you can have paid VPN from multiple locations, customer support service and everything. Allowing strangers into your network? No, thanks.

It's a great idea. Too bad people abuse it. I will explain why I gived these reasons. First: It's potentially illegal because it gives your IP address for other users to use. People can view sites banned by your goverment and probably get you into trouble. Stay away 100% from this unless you want to get in trouble... The privacy risks is a part of thiss too. It's also suspicious for not even telling us. You have to read their FAQ.

Hola now makes it clear that they rent the bandwidth and IP of their freemium users to third party, one of which is involved in a recent DDos attack on 8chan. Some away from it if you don't want troubles.

When a user installs Hola, he becomes a VPN endpoint, and other users of the Hola network may exit through his internet connection and take on his IP. This is what makes it free: Hola does not pay for the bandwidth that its VPN uses at all, and there is no user opt out for this. On the other hand, with the Tor onion router, users must specifically opt in to be exit nodes and are aware that completely anonymous traffic can pass through their connections, which means they should be ready for abuse reports for child porn, spam, copyrighted content and other ills that come with the territory.

It's a botnet, your bandwidth gets used without your permission and is sold to the highest bidder as a DDOS program. DO NOT USE!

Apart from what Hola software does, the website is trying to run scripts from 127.0.0.1 - locahost. No serious site tries to do this. One that is based upon patronising their ignorant users about how 'secure' their product is, just might employ this kind of site design, on the other hand... YMMV. Proceed with caution.

was good in the past but now it installs not only in Firefox but all over your computer without your consent. I guess now why it is not an officially supported add-on. Use at your own risks, especially regarding your privacy

This used to be a good product but now Hola injects ads into your browser. There are other products out there that do the same thing but don't give me potentially malware-laden ads.
