Route Shield is an application that provides per-process routing for DNS, proxy and VPN connections. With Route Shield you can force a program to use DNS-Over-HTTPS, DNS-Over-TLS, SOCKS4/5 proxies or specific VPN connections. This way, you have precise control over how a program communicates on the network.

There are a number of use cases for Route Shield. First and foremost is to add a controllable layer of privacy to any applications network activity. But from a more practical point-of-view, it is great for those of you that work at home with a corporate VPN but would like to separate your traffic without having to resort to VMs.

Route Shield is one of our newer tools that we are releasing and we are now providing 30-day trial licenses for anyone interested. It is not quite ready for wide distribution yet (hence the 30-day trial) but with additional user testing and feedback, we hope to get it out soon. Please send an email to if you would like a trial license key (and please be patient, it may take some time before you get your key). Do not just respond to this thread asking for a license key.

You can read more about Route Shield here (Heilig Defense Route Shield). Note that Route Shield only supports Windows 10. Due to some changes that Microsoft will soon be implementing relating to driver signing, we have no plans to support older Windows versions.
