NetShade is an anonymous proxy and VPN app+service for Mac. Unblock your Internet through NetShade's high-speed proxy and VPN servers spanning 17 countries.
NetShade masks your IP address as you browse the web, by routing you through a proxy server. Anonymous proxies are becoming more and more popular in this age of heightened security and privacy concerns, and NetShade provides an effective and straightforward interface to easily protect your privacy.
NetShade 8 is a complete rewrite of the app, which brings great new features:
Web access test
Custom proxy servers
Sync proxy settings with server
Touch bar support
Dark mode support
What's new in NetShade
Added "Set up an iOS device…" to Tools menu
More lenient about registration code input
Added a preference for Default Server: nearest, or last used
I HAVE BEEN USING FOR YEARS BUT THIS PAST YEAR. I COULD NEVER SEEM TO BE BLOCKED FOR MORE THAN 2 MINUTES AND I AM SKEPTICAL ABOUT RENEWING BECAUSE I DIDN'T GET TO USE THE SERVICE AS MUCH. BECAUSE NETSHADE KEPT KICKING ME OUT SOMEHOW.
NetShade 8.3 (230) release notes:
- Globe now has clickable pins for proxy servers
- Added buttons to Preferences->VPN for viewing or clearing PKI
- Right-clicking or long-pressing on the globe now sets your location
- Now properly removes defunct servers from the list
This page is giving release notes for Netshade 7 even though Netshade 8 is out. Netshade 8 is a newer GUI and now supports different connection modes (VPN, SOCKS, HTTP). includes a speed test, and Netshade 8 apparently also lays down the foundation for their new product, HOP, which lets you easily configure your own computer as a VPN server.
Netshade is the only annually billed VPN/proxy that I've been willing to pay for. More reliable than the other paid or free ones I've tried. There are periods where there are issues, generally when there is an update. But developer is very quick to respond to inquiries, usually in a day or two.
This is the best product by far i bought it at version 5 and never looked back its awesome and very secure the they reply really fast with queries. i made a mistake of buy another company VPN offering a lifetime subscription as i was installing it on another mac in another country but it was not as good as this one so the saving did not really work out. buying another one of these while its on offer ;) version 7 is really cool they are on the ball with this product and i feel safe and secure using it.
