By default, the app can distribute your data traffic across many of its servers, making your online location masked and unrecognizable to Internet Service Providers and the rest of the internet in general. In addition to that, It also comes with the large offering of customization tools that can be used for setting up remote access privileges, site-to-site VPNs, enterprise-scale remote access, adaptive load-balancing, advanced Wi-Fi security, failover services, fine-grained user access control, and much more.
Presence of both automated VPN services and advanced tools have made OpenVPN for macOS into #1 secure browsing software of choice for both regular users, organizations of all sizes and many Fortune 500 companies.
Installation and Use
It comes in a small package that will after installation re-configure the way your computer is accessing the internet. The configuration window of this app is actually very lightweight, and it holds only the most basic of tools for setting the type of your VPN setting (config file, system proxy settings or manual configuration) and a dropdown menu for selecting user interface language (with over 15 available translations).
Originally built for use in enterprise environments, the personal tier of OpenVPN retains the highly advanced technologies and lightweight tools. The core security feature of OpenVPN is based upon OSI layer 2 or 3 secure network extension that is utilizing SSL/TLS protocols. It installs deep into the Windows OS, enabling all the user apps to take advantage of the security features, firewall rules, authentication certificates, and more.
In real-world, ordinary non-business users can encounter various roadblocks that can prevent them from taking full advantage of their home internet connection. This may include ISP data rate throttling, website content region blocking, or even government-imposed firewalls. It allows users to circumvent these issues, offering you stable and secure data stream to their servers, from which you will be re-routed to any major region in the world, and be able to access its “local” content. No matter if you want to simply access region-specific sites and services (such as streaming platforms content offering) or to read censored news outlets, It can allow you to do that in just a few clicks.
Another benefit of Open VPN is a unified virtual presence. No matter where you physically are, if you are using Open VPN, the rest of the internet will be able to detect you originating from a single region.
