What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • New to the VPN game: Choosing a trustworthy VPN is crucial. While HotBot was a household name for those who had an internet connection in the 1990s, it’s relatively new to the VPN industry.
  • Lacks some core VPN features: HotBot VPN isn’t as well-rounded as we would have liked. It lacks split tunneling, the kill switch feature is rough, and it doesn’t offer multi-hop connections.
  • Confusing pricing: While HotBot offers several pricing options, the website automatically redirects you to the monthly plan, which is the most expensive of the available options.

Bottom Line

We’re glad to see a familiar name from the 1990s make a comeback, but as a VPN, HotBot has a long way to go. It is still rough around the edges – it lacks necessary features like split tunneling and multi-hop, for example – but we wouldn’t count it out just yet. It has a sizable network of servers and a good logging policy. With a few improvements here and there, we might see it in our top 10 VPN list soon.
