Protection on public Wi-Fi networks (was Cloak).

Overview

EncryptMe (was Cloak) is a service for your Mac, iPhone, and iPad that keeps you safe when you're connected to public wireless networks like those found at coffee shops, hotels, airports, and conferences.

With EncryptMe, safety is just a click away. Here's why:

  • No setup or configuration: it just works
  • Automatically detects insecure networks and keeps you safe
  • Rock-solid, industry standard encryption technologies
  • Protects all your apps, not just your Web browser
  • Supports all your Apple devices, not just your laptop

Note: You must first sign up to use EncryptMe. EncryptMe offers a 14-day free trial, and plans start at $9.99 per month after that. View full pricing info.

Version 4.1.1.1:

  • Now has the ability to work with multiple Mac users.
  • Users can now export diagnostics even if they are not logged in.
  • Better handling of Private endpoints (PEP’s)
  • Lots of bug fixes and performance improvements

"Cloak" was a good name.

Sorry to see it being replaced.

Still miss the "Cloak" name ...

"Encryptme" - for me at least - trivializes a nice product.

Thumbs up for Cloak!

I travel the around the world on business and pay for three VPN services. Anonymizer, Cloak, and VPN Unlimited. Over the years I have found that in certain locations, one of the VPN's will work and the other ones will not. I don't know why. I am not a VPN geek and I don't want to delve too deeply under the hood to learn how to tweak these apps. If one doesn't work I try the next. Bottomline is that I simply can't afford to browse unsecured so it is worth it to me to pay for three seemingly redundant services.

But this review if about Cloak. Cloak positives include the utter simplicity of the app. It feels very lightweight and fast. I also have it on my iPad and iPhone. It just works!

I am writing this review in Dubai on my Macbook Air. For some reason, Cloak was the only VPN of the three to make it through the Dubai JW Marriott wifi on this business trip. The other two would connect for about 10 seconds and then disconnect. Yea Cloak! I used whatismyip.com to verify it was working. Curiously, none of the VPN's (including Cloak) were able to connect on my iPad on the same JW Marriott wifi in Dubai.

One of my concerns with Cloak is whether their IP addresses change on a regular basis. Anonymizer and others change their IP addresses regularly. I like that. This is important in certain countries that track VPN IP addresses and then block them. Probably not an issue to most users, but important to me.

This reply is a little late, but I've only just now found Cloak and started using it. The answer is "yes" they occasionally change endpoint servers if you have Cloak configured for "fastest available" in preferences. This changes the IP address and ISP location seen by whatismyip.com and ipleaks.net and others. For me, it seems to happen every 2-3 days.

The simplicity of this app automatically connecting to the VPN whenever connected to a not-whitelisted SSID is a lifesaver. I never have to worry about remembering to trigger my VPN connection when I have to go online at a coffee shop, library, hotel, etc. As for the service itself, it's fast for a VPN, and I have never had any trouble with it. Overall, Cloak is $2.99/month well-spent just to keep it around for the few times I might need it.

I am just curious to know how you know if apps like this actually work and do what they say they do? Why would I trust a service like this instead of a hotel wifi network? Couldn't companies like this collect data by having it beamed to them directly through their apps? Anyone can make a front end GUI that says "Your IP address is being hidden." How can I test this to make sure?

The easiest way to be sure that it's doing *something* is to see if your IP is different when connected via the VPN. When connected to a VPN, your traffic is encrypted through a secure server, so you'll be broadcasting the IP of *that* server instead of your own.

Finding your IP is really easy these days, you can actually search for "What's my IP?" in Google or DuckDuckGo to have your IP displayed right above the search results (which of course then contain specific sites where you can do the same check). Your IP when connected to the VPN should be different than your IP when disconnected.

So, how do you check to see if the traffic is actually encrypted? Well, that's definitely not as easy, but a search for the question brings up plenty of articles with many steps that would be a bit excessive to go into here. :)

Most importantly, do you trust the VPN? Personally, I put more trust into a VPN that charges money, because they will stand to make a lot more from my subscription than they would from harvesting my potentially useless data, but they'll of course need a solid untarnished reputation in order for folks like me to continue paying them.

As for Cloak itself, I have grow to trust them over the years. I've never had any trouble with the service or app, their support pages are very detailed with regards to how they operate, and they are quick to reply to any concerns.

Works well - instantly signed up after the trial. Worth the $8 / month.

This is a fake review, imo. "Someone" is putting fake reviews on MacUpdate with "A male name (usually) added on with one letter and 4 numbers". (Check out HenningC5547 below and two (and the ONLY 2 reviews on Kript--which also happens to be VPN software, MarcoD5929 and EugeneM8666). The reviews are always 5 star. Don't know if the program is any good, but I am leery because of this obvious review padding. If you guys are real users, then feel free to flame me.

There are some real reviews here too. You can see by the number of pluses. Fake reviews are a real problem now on community sites (Amazon, IMDB, Metacritic). You can't trust your peers anymore. Reddit is about the last really anti-sock puppet site out there.

I'd tried out many other VPN systems including VYPRVPN, Hide my Ass, Hotspot Shield, Tunnel Bear, and VPN Unlimited before settling on Cloak. The apps for Mac OS and iOS are solid and well-designed, the service is the fastest I've found, and the prices are fair. If you're interested, try out their generous one month free trial and find out for yourself.

Working very well for me. Just been on a two month global trip and did not have to worry about e-banking from cafes etc as my connection was secured all the time without any thought on my part. Definitely 5 stars in my book. A few glitches due to flaky connections but developers very responsive. Need a discounted annual payment plan though
