How to Install VPN on MacBook


You can connect your Mac with a VPN when your company uses one by establishing connections in the System Preferences. The exact steps to follow will depend on the kind of VPN you choose to use, but often include importing the security certificate of your VPN. (Information about how to do this is available on the VPN’s website.

If you don’t have access to a specific business VPN service, you can use your Apple computer’s built-in VPN settings for creating an L2TP over IPSec connection. Open the System Preferences and select Network. Select the + icon to add the VPN connection. To establish the connection, you’ll have to know your server’s address, account username as well as password and shared secret.

Once you have this information, you’re now able to browse the Internet using your Mac’s VPN. Your web searches will be transmitted through the VPN which makes it impossible to track your online activities. This will also safeguard you from your internet service provider selling your data. Net neutrality is currently in danger and without it, ISPs could sell your browsing history, or even your physical location.

Installing a VPN on a MacBook can also be used to unlock content that is restricted in your area. A VPN can allow you to get around this. Many websites for entertainment restrict content based on your location. You will require downloading the Mac software and register with an premium VPN such as Surfshark.
