Macs have built-in support for connecting to the most common types of VPNs. If you want to ensure your Mac is automatically reconnected to your VPN or connect to an OpenVPN VPN, you’ll need a third-party app.
This process is similar whether you’re using Windows, Android, iPhone, iPad, or another operating system. macOS provides a menu bar icon for controlling the VPN connection.
