Features for ALL your devices

A VPN service works great with the default VPN client apps, but only on some devices and operating systems.

As a consequence, compatibility is limited.

ShieldMe works just like the VPN client app for computers or phones, except it runs directly on your router!

Just by connecting to a VPN server with ShieldMe, you automatically secure every device in your home at once.

ShieldMe custom VPN rules

Custom VPN Rules

Customize how VPN works for each device connected to your router.
Available options are:
The default behavior, automatically routes traffic through VPN tunnel for that device, when VPN server is connected.
Otherwise, it routes the traffic through your Internet Service Provider.
Force routing traffic through VPN tunnel.
The device will not have access to internet if VPN disconnects or tunnel is not available.
Force bypass VPN tunnel, routing traffic through your Internet Service Provider connection, completely avoiding any VPN server  protection.
Additionally, you can customize how your VPN works for specific destinations like websites, IP addresses or domains.
By default, if no specific rule is set, the above device rules apply. These custom rules can be set:
Force routing traffic to destination through VPN tunnel.
Force bypass VPN tunnel, routing traffic to the destination through your Internet Service Provider connection, completely avoiding any VPN server  protection.
