Editors' review

Working in the background, Sidestep for Mac automatically detects public networks and routes the sites through a secure server, allowing those who are concerned about their security to browse the Web safely.

After installation, Sidestep for Mac brings up a window that explains how it works through a proxy server to create a secure connection. The next window prompts the user to set up the proxy server by entering its information. If the user does not have access to one, the application also has an option to help locate those available. After this is complete, the program window closes, leaving the application running in the background. It does not activate until the user signs on to an unsecure network, which starts the secure proxy server. The process was simple and effective in our tests, and we were impressed by how easy it was to set up and use this handy little tool.

Sidestep for Mac adds an additional layer of protection through its automatic proxy server activation. Users who often use unsecured networks at coffee shops or other public places will find this program quite helpful.
