How to Remove Hotspot Shield VPN From iPhone Settings?

Have you ever tried Hotspot Shield app on your iPhone, iPod or iPad to protect your online privacy? If your answer is no, then go and install this app from App Store now. No wonder, installing Hotspot Shield on your iDevice is like a piece of cake, yet to remove Hotspot Shield VPN profile and VPN menu from your iDevice’s Settings app is not that simple. This tutorial will teach you how to remove Hotspot Shield VPN from your iDevice completely!

You may recall that during your seven days of trial using the app, you were prompted to choose between the "Manual" or "Always On" protection, as soon as you started using it. In order to get the Hotspot Shield working on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, you need to perform additional installation. As soon as you launch the app, it will guide you to their server to download profile which you’ll be needing to install on your iDevice, depending on whether you’d like to have the protection Shield always on (recommended for novice users) or manually activated (for advanced users). But as soon as you have Hotspot Shield VPN profile installed, you’ll notice the difference in webpage loading times.

Remove Hotspot Shield VPN:

With the VPN profile installed on your iPhone, the process to remove Hotspot Shield VPN isn’t as simple as usual: long press on the icon and then press the x (cross) button. Using the common way to uninstall Hotspot Shield VPN doesn’t fully remove the application. Although the icon disappears from your iPhone’s screen, the profile is still installed in your iPhone’s settings. In order to remove Hotspot Shield VPN completely, here are the steps you should follow.

Steps to Remove Hotspot Shield VPN:

Step 1: Go to Settings app
Remove Hotspot Shield VPN
Step 2: Choose General menu
Step 3: Go to Profiles section. Here you will see all your installed profiles
Remove Hotspot Shield VPN
Step 4: Tap on Hotpot Shield VPN button
Step 5: Click on the “Remove” button
Step 6: If you have set up a security pass code, you’ll be prompted to enter it now. If you didn’t, ignore it
Step 7: The VPN profile is now gone.
Congratulations, you have completed the process to remove Hotspot Shield VPN from your iDevice.
