How to set up a VPN on a Mac

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is one of the most effective tools that you can have in your personal security arsenal.

A VPN acts as an encryption tunnel between your computer and the internet, effectively masking everything you do and ensuring that you cannot be tracked. By “lending” you an IP address from a shared pool, the VPN keeps your own IP address hidden and so keeps all your data hidden too. No-log VPNs don’t even keep any information about their users or their activity.

However, many people don’t invest in a VPN because they think that it will be too difficult for them to install, especially if they’re on a Mac.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. You can set up the SurfEasy VPN for Mac on an Apple computer in just a couple of minutes.

  1. Go to and create an account.
  1. Visit the App store and download the app onto your OSX machine.
  1. Turn on the app.
  1. You’re all set to surf the web totally protected!

The SurfEasy VPN allows you to switch regions at the touch of a button and can also be turned on or off with a single click. You can also use the VPN on up to 4 more devices for no additional charge, meaning that you can consider yourself fully protected no matter whether you’re on your laptop, your Android device or your iPhone or iPad.

So what are you waiting for? Go to today and get started!
