List of Best VPN for Mac

1. Private Internet Access

So to begin with, let’s consider Private Internet Access. Private Internet Access does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a VPN that regards your privacy and secure internet connection above anything else. It doesn’t keep logs, meaning that you can be sure no one will snoop on you and see what you’ve been doing on the internet. What’s more, you can sign up to Private Internet Access with an anonymous email address. If you regard privacy and anonymity, then this is a good choice. And it’s compatible with most devices, meaning that not only can you install it on your Mac, but also your iPhone (if you’re a true Apple geek!).

2. Hidemyass

An alternative VPN is Hidemyass. Like Private Internet Access, it provides all the tools to help you surf the web with security and anonymity – and it runs perfectly on Apple operating systems. Where it perhaps wins over Private Internet Access, is the fact that it comes with month-long money back guarantee. If you don’t like this VPN for the first 30 days, then send it back and you’ll be fully reimbursed (Private Internet Access doesn’t offer any such deal). What’s more, Hidemyass is available at the low, low price of just $9.99 a month.
