Shadowrocket [M1 Macs ONLY]

Updated: April 17, 2024

Shadowrocket is a third-party paid app. If you already have a non-chinese itunes account, we recommend using OneClick instead. OneClick's setup is easier as well.

Shadowrocket is now working on all M-series Macs.

If you don't have an M1 Mac, please use ClashX instead.

Download the app

The Shadowrocket app has been taken down from the Chinese app store. Use our US iTunes account to download it.

To find the login and password for our US iTunes account, login to your client area, select Shadowrocket under "Mac Setup", click "Download", and you'll see our iTunes account login details there.

Open your Mac App Store. Search for "shadowrocket", and click the iPad/iPhone apps tab to find it. Download it.

IMPORTANT: make sure you remember your own iTunes account username and password so you can log back into your account after downloading the app.

If all our accounts don't work because the password needs to be reset, please send a message on our telegram group or open a support ticket (see your client area under "Support").
