Shell Fire VPN: small functionality

The Shellfire Box is one thing. Of course it also needs the right one VPN, And, that's our Shellfire VPN Testing is a good, if not outstanding, solution. The service is available for various devices - such as Windows, Android, iOS or Mac. The apps are fine in the application, but offer only a small range of functions and has potential for optimization. For example, no kill switch or malware blocker is available. Which of course is not surprising, because behind Shellfire VPN is a rather small team from Germany and not a giant group. So yes, the development of the box was not completely self-financed, but helped via crowdfunding (good idea!

German provider - German legislation

As already mentioned Shellfire comes from Germany. This means that the provider is of course subject to German legislation and would have to provide information on inquiries from authorities. If he had data to pass on - that denies ShellfireVPN but. According to their statement, absolutely nothing is logged on the servers and so there is nothing Shellfire does VPN could pass on. The transfer of data also takes place via OpenVPN instead, which is very safe. Nevertheless, we would not rely on you to remain completely anonymous. File sharing and torrent should not be done with Shellfire VPN use. Otherwise, warnings could threaten. As far as streaming is concerned, this is allowed and possible (as opposed to file sharing) on ​​all available servers.
Shell Fire VPN Operation

Average speed, but sufficient

The speed of the VPNs were mediocre in our test with 80% of the maximum available bandwidth. This is partly due to the OpenVPN On the other hand, Shellfire also seems to have speed limits on its own servers. Especially in the premium rate, these restrictions should not be noticed.

Shellfire with its Shellfire Box for all users an essential step for the simple and cross-device use of a VPNs set throughout the household. A great idea! In addition, the associated Shellfire VPN inexpensive and easy to use, a great way to query foreign content. A downside is of course the company location Germany. By law, Shellfire is obliged to disclose data (warnings!). However, the provider claims to collect these data not at all by his users and so definitely not to be able to pass. Also at the functions Shellfire can still work safely. But in sum, both are VPN Service as well as the box thoroughly recommended.
