How to Setup Hotspot Shield, Free VPN for 

It appears Hotspot Shield’s iPhone page is no longer supported, but the service still works. Enter the details as shown below. You can also access Netflix USA with your Netflix Canada account by adding this VPN to your iOS devices.
If you’re browsing on your iPhone on an open WiFi network, you might want to secure your connection with a VPN (Virtual Private Network). If you want to access US-only content and have your IP US-based, you can also use a VPN.
We’ve talked about setting up a paid VPN solution via Witopia to use the ABC iPad app in Canada, but there is a free solution via Hotspot Shield. PC and Mac users have used Hotspot Shield for a while now, but there is also a solution for iPhone users.
Here’s how to setup your Hotspot Shield VPN on your iPhone (according to their guide):
1. Turn off WiFi. Then find the VPN settings in
Settings -> General -> Network -> VPN -> Add VPN Configuration:
Enter the following details:
Select the IPSec tab/pane
Description: HotspotShield
Account: n5tfrq
Password: n5tfrq
Use Certificate: OFF
Group Name: hss
Secret: hss
2. Save the settings and hit the “HOME” button to quit. Make sure to turn Wi-Fi back “ON”.
3. To activate Hotspot Shield on your iPhone, the VPN setting needs to be turned on.
Settings –> VPN –> ON
If you entered your info correctly, your status will change to “Connected” and you’ll see a VPN icon appear at the top iPhone tray. If you can’t connect, power down your phone, and turn it back on and try again.
Hotspot Shield worked over both 3G and WiFi.
Accessing US-IP Only Websites
With Hotspot Shield’s VPN enabled, I was able to make better use of the Skyfire app. Watching content from the US such as The Daily Show worked without a problem. I was also able to use Pandora, which is only available in the US App Store and works only in the USA in Canada. I’ll have a brief tutorial on that later.

Hotspot Shield’s VPN did take a couple tries to setup though. There are various login/password accounts provided and if one doesn’t work, try another (you might have to reload the page in a different browser). I did this and it worked for me.
Also, the VPN doesn’t stay on forever as it will turn itself off after a brief period of time. Nonetheless, for a 
free VPN solution on the iPhone, Hotspot Shield does the job for your immediate needs.

Let me know how Hotspot Shield for the iPhone works for you in the comments!

I just realized the Personal hotspot is gone from 4.3.2 and there is no sign of it anywhere I could find. Very inconvenient!
