If your company uses an VPN that you can connect your Mac to it by establishing networks in the System Preferences window. The exact steps you need to take will depend on the type of VPN you use, but often include importing the security certificate of your VPN. (Information about how to do this can be found on the VPN’s website.

If you don’t have access to an enterprise-grade VPN service, you can create an L2TP connection using the built-in VPN settings of your Apple computer. To do this, open the System Preferences window and select Network. Then choose the + icon to add the VPN connection. You’ll require a server address and account name, username and password to set up this connection, and the shared secret.

Once you have all the information you need, you’re now able to browse the Internet using your Mac’s VPN. Your internet searches will be sent through the VPN which makes it impossible to trace your online activities. This will also protect against your internet provider selling your data. Net neutrality, which is currently under threat by ISPs may allow them to sell your browsing history, as well as your physical location.

Another reason to install a VPN on your MacBook is to unlock content that might be blocked in your region. A VPN can help you bypass this. Many entertainment websites restrict content based on the location you’re in. You’ll need to download the Mac software and sign up with an premium VPN such as Surfshark.
