Enjoy unlimited, uncapped VPN access for $11.52 a month, $49.99 for 6 months or $78.66 a year.
- Country Selection – all of the Hide My Ass servers and VPN protocols are easily accessible from within the client. You can choose them from a simple drop down or view a list of servers by country. Those who prefer a visual representation can also select between VPN servers using their map overview.
- IP Address Settings – the HideMyAss client allows you to randomly change IP addresses at set intervals. You can also view a log of the IP address history for your connections.
- Load Balancing – load balancing is our favorite client feature. This option is enabled by default and helps HMA provide the best possible speed. Anytime you connect to a server with 30% higher utilization than other servers in the same group the client will notify you and recommend the fastest server in that area.
- Secure IP Bind – members can use secure IP bind to bind applications to HideMyAss. Then the software will only run when connected to the service. If you get disconnected the application will stop working until the encrypted connection is resumed.
