VPN stands for “virtual private network”, a technology that allows secure data exchange even through unsecure networks. Shellfire VPN establishes an encrypted connection to a VPN server and sends the entire internet traffic through this secure data tunnel. The user’s true IP address becomes masked and neither internet service providers nor hackers are able to successfully eavesdrop on the connection. Shellfire VPN now brings all these features to the iPhones and iPads of Apple enthusiasts. In contrast to other apps, Shellfire VPN can be used free of charge permanently without any time or data volume limits.

Connections to servers located in different countries allow the access to geoblocked entertainment services or the circumvention of internet censorship. This can be especially useful to residents and travelers in countries with strong internet surveillance. Common eavesdroppping, for example in public wifi hotspots, is effectively prevented by employing secure encryption technology. Shellfire VPN for iPhone and iPad utilizes the native IPsec implementation of iOS and offers greatly elevated security against eavesdroppers by employing individual user certificates. Effective online data preservation by network providers is automatically prevented, Shellfire does not log any data itself.

Shellfire VPN offers premium services subject to a fee starting from $3,95 per month which allow access to unlimited download speeds and infinite server choice from servers in 30 countries world wide.

Windows, Mac OS X and Android users can download an appropriate version of Shellfire VPN from Shellfire also offers a hardware solution, the Shellfire Box, originally funded through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo:
