Is vShare App Safe?

Yes, it is, and it is legal too. Because it doesn’t require a jailbreak, it doesn’t require root access and will work the same as any standard app.

The app was thoroughly tested before being released too, and SSL encryption has been included. While the developers also issue updates on a regular basis, you can also help yourself by using reputable anti-virus software and using one of the recommended vShare VPNs too.
