When you’ve installed the client, it will open a new tab in your browser window and try to connect you with Hotspot shield server and assign you the new IP address. Now when it’s connected as you can see in the screenshot below, head over to the 3rd step :P.
Step 3: Now open Hotspot Shield free Calling offer page and click on the blue button’ Get Free Voucher now’. You’ll be given a unique voucher code to redeem at the Skype website.
Step 4: Login to your Skype account and go to this page. Now copy paste the Voucher code you got in the 3rd step in the box and click ‘Redeem Voucher or Prepaid Card’. On the next page, you’ll be greeted with the message, just like in the image below.
That’s it!! It’s that simple. Note that it’s necessary to install Hotspot Shield client on your computer. Otherwise, you won’t be able to get the free voucher code for Skype. Keep in mind that Hotspot Shield client just changes your IP address. The software is generally used to access block websites and it doesn’t invite any type of malwares or viruses to your computer, as it’s secure and safe to use.
If you don’t want to keep Hotspot Shield on your computer, just uninstall it if you’ve got the voucher code for free 1 hour calling anywhere in the world from Skype. Also, don’t try to be smart, if you’re thinking you’ll get another unique voucher code by installing the client again on your PC then you’re wrong. Hotspot Shield won’t give you another voucher that way. It might be possible if you use another PC and install Hotspot client on it. Well, I haven’t tried it yet. If you have tried this trick, please let me know if it works for you.
