How to fix
I use hotspot to connect to VPN in CM11, although it connected and the hot spot go green, nothing happened and the Google play become blank.
Then I tried to close the full protection within the hotspot shield app, its icon become blue ( see photo) and lastly I can access Google play. Not sure what happened but I googled my problem earlier and found that the VPN issue is common since android 4.4.2..
