Sidestep is an open source and easy to use menu bar based application for Mac OS X that sits quietly in the background, protecting your security and privacy as you browse the web.

When you connect to an insecure network, Sidestep opens an SSH tunnel with the proxy server, and then sets the Mac OS X system-wide SOCKS proxy to use this SSH connection.

And since most Mac applications (including browsers) use this system-wide proxy to connect to the Internet through, they will all end up using the encrypted SSH tunnel.

And it does all this in the background so that you don’t even notice it.

With Sidestep enabled, no one can eavesdrop on your traffic and impersonate you or see what you’re seeing as you browse the web.
