Using VPN (Virtual Private Network) technology helps to solve a few problems that lately become more and more challenging for any Internet user.

First of all, VPN allows using any online-resources and services absolutely anonymously. Acting like an anonymous proxy server, VPN replaces your IP address to the IP address of our server. Therefore no one can find out where exactly you are located.

Moreover, VPN encrypts all data you transfer. That is why it is safe to use public Wi-Fi hotspots in your favorite café. You can not worry about risks of stealing passwords to your Facebook account or e-mail address by hackers.

Additionally VPN helps to unlock access to social media services and entertainment websites – you can use Facebook, Twitter and Youtube without a risk that your boss or a curious system administrator will find out what websites you visit during your business hours.

VPN setup in Mac OS X Yosemite and earlier versions of this operating system is possible with the use of PPTP, L2TP or OpenVPN protocol. Following the step-by-step instructions with informative illustrations you will quickly and easily setup your MacBook or iMac for secure and anonymous work in the Internet.

The first two types of connections are setup using standard Mac OS X means, while setting a connection via OpenVPN requires downloading a freeware application. You can find more information about the aforementioned protocols in proper articles on our website (PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN).
