Most VPNs nowadays are designed to work with multiple platforms. This means that most VPN services will work with Mac OS, as well as with any of your other iOS devices. That being said, not all VPN services are created equal, so you’ve got to consider quality of the VPN service when choosing one.
The other thing you should consider is whether or not the service offers a ‘VPN client’, or VPN software for Mac. VPNs are able to be set up on many devices, but not all services have software developed to allow for easy installation, easy change of IP/country, or other customization settings.
A service with a VPN client for Mac is going to allow you to actually use the VPN via some pretty software. Though not entirely necessary, this is good for 2 things. 1) It makes it easy to set up and run the VPN for newbies, and 2) it makes finding all the features of the service simple.
I used a VPN service called 12VPN without any software for years, and was totally fine. I connected, disconnected, and that was it. But after trying out some of the cool software that’s available, I have come to appreciate the ease of use and the accessibility of various custom functions of VPN software.
So, here are two great VPN services that have great VPN clients for Mac.
This is a VPN service that is dedicated to your privacy and high quality VPN connections. They own their own server network, write their own VPN software, and maintain all aspects of their service. For privacy advocates, this is the service of choice. Read the full review here or sign up here.
