The app is neatly optimized for the Mac operating system, to add to the bunch.

As for IT-focused people using this software, Shimo provides tools for importing, exporting, and deploying different packages, configurations, and profiles for easy use and switching in between. Also be sure that your connection is stable and secure by using Shimo - with triggers, as well as configuring certain actions to be performed immediately when connected to the VPN network. 


Shimo is a great choice for anyone seeking quality VPN service, configurable to your liking with many handy features

  • Free use of VPN protocols, and support for almost every major VPN plugin. Also includes updates coming out for aforementioned protocols which in turn make use of the app rather satisfying 
  • The menu bar if its own, allowing for easy use in just a few clicks. The settings and configuration dialog process also comes pretty easy to understand due to plain and simple design choices
  • Multiple connections allowed to be established on the go, allowing for multi-tasking at work or for versatile personal use
  • A plethora of safety features, including Two-Factor authentication, advanced use of MacOS key and password control systems (Keychain), and more. The use of Tokens is, of course, in place which in turn makes using this VPN sufficiently safe
  • Different accounting features and statistics, keeping track of all data being transferred for better insight into billing data. This comes in clutch for business and consultant users, helping organize the data usage.

All of the foregoing are really making Shimo one of (if not) the best VPN software choices out there for any Mac user combined. The sheer scale of features and the overall quality of the project does stand out on the VPN scene and makes Shimo truly unique.
