ProtonVPN-Mac Beta (blog and social media)-2

As the number of Proton VPN(new window) users has grown, so has the demand for a macOS VPN app. We’re pleased to welcome a growing community that supports our vision and has the same concerns about online safety and privacy.

After much work over the past several months, we’re happy to finally make the Proton VPN macOS beta application available to all paid Proton VPN users. Your feedback is important because it will help to shape the subsequent development of the application.

Join MacOS Beta

First, sign up for a Free plan for macOS(new window). Once you log in you will be able to download and install the macOS app and start testing. If you’re a Proton VPN free user and want to participate in this program, you can do so by upgrading to any paid plan. Just login to your account and choose the plan that fits you the best.

Proton VPN’s macOS app contains several advantages over using an OpenVPN application like Tunnelblick. First, the macOS application uses the modern IKEv2 protocol which can sometimes allow for higher performance compared to OpenVPN. It also comes with a graphical user interface which automatically shows all available servers, and allows you to connect to any country with a single click using either the country listing or the map. It also allows you to create and save custom connection profiles, and also comes with a configurable VPN kill switch feature. If you have problems with the macOS application, you can also use Proton VPN on your Mac using OpenVPN(new window).

Your feedback is important! You can report bugs or send us your opinion through our support form here(new window).

We look forward to working with the community to build the best macOS VPN application available!

Best Regards,
The Proton VPN Team
