"Don't take the protection for granted. Verify."

February 26, 2012  |  By opoponox

 |  Version: NetShade 4.3


It's a needed product. It has several proxy addresses all over the Western world. It works if you work with it by always verifying your proxy connection and switching browsers if necessary.


Seems pretty inconsistent in providing the proxy connection, although its graphic shows you are connected. Check your IP address every time you activate Netshade. I switch between browsers because it works on one but not the other at times.


Not at all seamless. Can be frustrating. You've got to make sure you are getting a proxy connection by testing. Switch your browser if it isn't working on one. Do not take the protection for granted. Make sure you are connected via a proxy. Reviews on sites by the "professionals" have been too positive. It works if you make sure it works.

"Does not Work"

June 10, 2011  |  By saneman

 |  Version: NetShade 4.3


There is no pro's.


The free trial does not work, it automatically says the trial period is over and asks you to buy it.


If a company is going to offer a free trial it should actually allow you to try it.
