Bad Vilbel, Germany – Shellfire VPN is a free app that has been especially designed to suit the needs of inexperienced users looking for a way to enhance their online privacy. The apps for Windows PCs and Android devices have reached over 130,000 registered users in a short period of time. Today, Shellfire announces the release of Shellfire VPN for Mac OS X.

Vpn stands for “Virtual private network,” a technology that provides a way to securely exchange data through non-secure networks. Shellfire VPN establishes an encrypted connection to a vpn server and redirects the data traffic through this so called “tunnel.” The user’s true ip address is hidden and the encryption makes it impossible for hackers to eavesdrop on the connection. Shellfire VPN now brings these features to the hands of Apple enthusiasts using their iMac, MacBook or another Mac OS X computer. Contrary to other apps, server choice is included into the easy-to-use interface of Shellfire VPN and connection management is completely automated.

Connecting to a server abroad grants the user easy access to content that is otherwise unavailable from his current location. This is can be especially useful for residents and travelers in countries with heavy online censorship. Eavesdroppers on potentially non-secure public WiFi networks are easily fought off by the state-of-the-art military grade encryption of Shellfire VPN.

The free vpn plan has some restrictions like limited server choice and download bandwidth but is otherwise fully functional. With Shellfire VPN Premium- and PremiumPlus, the user gets unlimited bandwidth and free choice from servers in up to 19 different countries worldwide. The monthly fee for paid plans varies from 3,95€ to 7,95€. Shellfire VPN for Mac, Windows and Android can be downloaded from
