Used to work until recently. Now that the HMA website interface has changed, the add-on no longer works.

Not sure about security, but it used to provide access to blocked websites.

Not So Secure Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hide My Ass (HMA) is a simple, straight-forward Proxy tool.

While it might be the 'most popular,' this DOESN'T mean the best - and it really isn't.

If anyone interested in using a secure web proxy by now (SHOULD) doesn't know, on the Dark Web, the (purported) operator of SIlk Road (sort of the 'anti-Amazon') was, caught - because the communications he (thought) were secure, WEREN'T.

The reason? He was using HMA.

Also, if you don't wanna do a lot of research on which proxy server's good, btter, bst, check out most any (reputable) site offering reviews, or 'best' lists. HMA ISN'T listed.

It never makes me happy to say something isn't very good, and I always liked (the idea) of HMA, but, if you want a more secure proxy server, go elsewhere.

Listen; you can choose to either take my advice, or not - the ONLY one who (might) end up with problems ISN'T me.

Актуально для России, теперь когда повсюду блокировки, очень нужная вещь. Дундукам из Роскомнадзора привет.

Works, with some flaws, but in majority ok.

One time it works, and the other doesn't. One star minus from start

Works well enough. Don't rely on it for anonymity, though.

Hopeless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It doesn't work crap a waste of time

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This doesn't work in many countries, such as in the middle east. They block Hide My Ass website.
Don't waste money getting a paid subscription either. They owe me six month subscription for services not rendered.

Hide My Ass Web Proxy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thumbs way up for this excellent Firefox addon! I installed it some time ago, and while visiting a site, a popup appeared. I thought this the perfect time to hit the browser HideMyAss button. I was immediately cloaked to any and all the attempts on the site to annoy and track my surfing and activities here.

The HideMyAss.com addon is built for people like myself who do NOT want to be data mined for any reason.

Just a footnote to this review. I also use the other services found on the HideMyAss.com on a regular basis. Excellent services all!

Annoying ads Rated 1 out of 5 stars

1/ Lots of annoying ads.
2/ Some content like captcha disappeared - it makes work impossible.

Just a link, not worth anything at all Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I registered to rate the first worthless add-on Ive downloaded in Firefox. This is a scammy link to their scammy website, which bombards you with adds and is barely functional as a proxy server. yep, its just a link- I guess the bar is set pretty low for what they call an "add on"

Wanted to use it to watch blocked Youtube videos in Germany, but it doesn't work.

I had this service for a total of 5 hours before I asked for a refund. They are NOT a good VPN at all. I unfortunately bought their yearly subscription before being informed. First of all, when I first used it I got disconnected a number of times. I played around with it and emailed them a few times. NOTHING. I turned it off midday. By then, I asked for a refund again and again and again. Still NOTHING. By two days time they responded (to my 6 requests) and told me they'll send it for processing. I had already switched to Private Internet Access by then because of what I read of them, they were a good service. My experience with PIA has been a dream compared to HMA. Any email I send they respond to within minutes usually with wonderful suggestions. I couldn't believe how responsive and helpful they were. And for a fraction of HMAs subscription price. I finally got an email today from HMA (a week later) saying that in those few hours I used over 10 GB of usage (A total of in and out?). I don't see how thats even possible. Anyway, because of that, they are charging me NOT ONE MONTH, BUT TWO MONTHS subscription for 5 hours of USAGE!! I doubt I'm the first this has happened to. I've read a lot of bad reviews of them. I've also read that they'll happily give out your private information, websites you've visited and time stamps to anyone who asks, with or without a court order. Don't use HMA, I recommend PIA for your VPN instead. They respond to every email promptly, they keep absolutely no logs, timestamps of your activity, don't have a bandwidth limit, will issue a refund without these issues. Plus they are torrent friendly and will give you suggestions on which exit servers to use for your purposes. On top of that, they are 60% less expensive than HMA. They don't have a funny name or a cute icon, but thats it. Everything about HMAs service is shoddy and fishy. I'm abashed that they've charged me for two months for having them turned on for 5 hours. I am not exaggerating here. 5 HOURS = TWO MONTHS PAYMENT.

HideMyAss keeps logs to un-hide your ass.

Хорошее дополнение. Правда, у него есть один недостаток. При посещении любого сайта с помощью прокси резко падает скорость загрузки страниц.

Very useful addon, a must-have! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is a must-have for everyone who wants to secure his online traffic and protect his privacy. Even better is their VPN service, I'm a long-time customer. Tried other services, this one is the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add on is useful and valuable. But this add-on has some problem. This is hiding my cookes .I dis-lick this.

I am an avid users of the HMA Toolbar along with my subscription to their Pro Service. I totally agree with this honest review of HMA : http://www.thevpnreviewer.com/reviews/hide-my-ass-vpn-review/

I must say this the service is very reliable and as a frequent traveler it gives me the ability to unblock online tv.... i definitely love the FireFox toolbar which is very reliable too !

very useful as we live in times of more and more censorship of our internet. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The worse thing about censorship is *******. Our governments are wrapping our internet in chains and 'Hide my Ass' help us remove them chains and view the webpages we want to view that have probably been blocked for some stupid reason that's none of the government business anyway. I like this extension because unlike some of the other that do the same thing hide my ass is very simple to use and it does what it says on the tin. Thank-you hide my ass for a great little add-on, that's very useful, the way thing are going with crazy new laws being passed all the time , more and more normal everyday users of the internet will find themselves having to use it.
