In one of our previous tutorials we showed you, how to install VPN on your FireTV or Stick and stay anonymous with your internet activities. In this article we will go further and demonstrate, that this is also possible for other platforms like Mac OS. Please keep in mind, that IPVanish VPN is available for almost every platform, so you´re not limited to use it only on your FireTV or Stick. The following step-by-step tutorial will guide you through the process of installing VPN on your Mac OS.
Step 1: Sign up for an IPVanish Account here. Don´t worry! You will get the cheapest plan for $6.49. You´ll also get a 7-day-money-back guarantee. As we always say, keep your account information on a safe place.
Step 2: After you successfully signed up for an account, click here https://www.ipvanish.com/vpn-setup/mac/ to go to the “IPVanish for Mac” download section and click the “Download Mac App” button. The “IPVanish Mac App” will be downloaded. You will need this app to install VPN on Mac OS.
Step 3: After the download is complete, go to your “Downloads” Folder and double click the IPVanish.dmg file. The installation dialog appears. Now “Drag&Drop” the IPVanish icon to the Applications section. IPVanish will be installed on your system.
Step 4: Start IPVanish VPN by double clicking on the icon. If you cannot find it, simply press CMD + Space and enter “IPVanish” and start the application by pressing ENTER. You now have to enter your IPVanish username and password and click on the Login button afterwards.
Step 5: You´re now logged in! The app shows you, that you´re not connected to any VPN server right now. On the upper left corner, you can see your current ip address and location. This is your actual identity on the internet. Maybe you have already noticed, that this is your real location. But let us change that to make you untracable! 🙂
Step 6: Now you are ready to connect to a lot of VPN Servers and start using your internet without leaving any traces. You can simply just click on “CONNECT” on the bottom right corner without making any choice. This will connect you to the best available servers. But you can also choose your preferred country and even a specific city and server. The following screenshot shows that we connected to a server in Sofia which is located in Bulgaria. You can see, that the ip address of your visible location had changed. From now on, you are surfing anonymous and every endpoint in the internet will only see the ip address from Bulgaria instead of your real one! Congratulations, you have successfully installed VPN on Mac OS!
