Hola is free for private (non-commercial) use on PCs and Macs, and requires a subscription on i OS and Android.Commercial use of Hola for business class VPN is available through our Luminati service.
This also means that Hola is harder to detect and block.
Currently, Hola runs in a hybrid mode - combining traditional VPN architecture and peer-to-peer technology.
Thus, Hola invests in protecting you and closing these workarounds as they are identified.
We also do not collect, store, or sell your personal identifiable information (PII), and never will.
They cannot access your device, they are only routed through it.
Hola is free on PC and Mac only for non-commercial users.Like any P2P network, Hola is a "value exchange" network - you get the Hola service for free (on PC and Mac), and in exchange you provide a certain amount of network and processing power when your computer is not in use. To provide you its functionality, Hola sometimes needs to route your services through peers (other people's devices) on the Hola network.In return, some of their traffic is also routed through your device securely.When your device is not in use, other packets of information from other people may be routed through your device.Hola does this securely, not allowing any access to any of your information. As with any new technology, in addition to the benefits it brings there can be workarounds (such as in Wi Fi where malicious people can try to hijack your Wi Fi hotspot).For commercial use by businesses, Hola provides similar routing functionality through the Hola network for a fee. The amount of traffic that Hola passes through a peer on its network per day on average is less than a 20 second You Tube clip.
