Remove Hola VPN


UD IT Security prohibits Hola VPN from University owned machines and strongly recommends that Hola VPN be uninstalled from personal devices because the software:

  • Monitors search queries, browsing history, geolocation, and keyboard and mouse inputs.
  • Indiscriminately shares information with third parties.
