Online Shield 365: FREE VPN to View Blocked Sites, Surf Web Safely

Steganos offers free version of its Online Shield 365 VPN services, allowing users to surf the web safely and anonymously.

VPNs are an increasingly popular tool for encrypting Internet traffic, and for good reason. The Internet always has and always will be plagued by geographic content and site restrictions, and data security concerns.

VPNs help to solve the problem by creating “virtual” encrypted connections routed through the Internet to remote servers, ensuring that data traveling between you and those servers is encrypted, and that the  IP address that will appear while surfing or downloading content from the Internet will be that of the server your connected to and not your own.

I’ve already mentioned Anchor Free’s Hotspot Shield along with proxy services like Stealthy and others, but it’s Steganos’ Online Shield 365 that I want to also mention. I’ve already listed it in my “Top 5 Free VPN Services” around, but thought it worth mentioning the service in more detail.

“With Steganos Online Shield 365 you can secure your connection at home, in the office and even in public Wi-Fi hotspots ” whether you access the Internet wired or wirelessly,” says the company. “All entered data such as passwords, addresses; credit card numbers are transmitted only in encrypted form. The data is flowing through fast and secure external Steganos servers in Germany, Britain, France, the U.S. and Switzerland. So you can surf safely on unknown sites that may not have their own protective defences.”


The free version offers a modest 500 MB/mo, plenty for browsing the web, with the option to  purchase a 1-year-license for a rather inexpensive (compared to other paid-for VPN services) $69.95.

Features include:

  • Protect your Internet connection through encryption ” with just one click
  • Visit unknown website safely ” thanks to IP address protection
  • Prevent password, credit card and identity theft
  • Protect yourself from snoopers on public Wi-Fi hotspots, for example in hotels, cafes, airports or offices
  • Unlimited backup data traffic without artificial speed reduction
  • Bypass censorship projects and call blocking on unharmed sites in your country
  • Fast and secure external server in Germany, Britain, France, the U.S. and Switzerland
  • One price, no confusing pricing, no hidden costs

The nice thing about Online Shield 365 is that it runs quietly in your system tray; turn it off and quietly and effortlessly.

Steganos’ Online Shield 365 works on Windows XP, Vista, and Win 7.

Stay tuned.
