Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why is AVG Secure VPN better than the best free VPNs for Mac?

    AVG Secure VPN is one of the best VPNs for Mac because it’s been created by the leading security experts here at AVG. When you connect to any of our lightning-fast servers around the world, you’ll enjoy the privacy of a hidden IP address along with the security of bank-grade encryption across your internet connection. Stay anonymous online, secure your data, watch your favorite TV shows, and access other content, no matter where you go. Even the best free VPNs for Mac can’t claim to provide the same levels of speed, privacy, security, and convenience.

  • Why should I use a VPN on my Mac?

    A VPN for Mac gives you privacy and anonymity when you go online by hiding your IP address. VPNs also encrypt your internet connection to secure your data over any network, including unsecured, public Wi-Fi. Thanks to the ability to connect to servers around the world, a VPN allows you to unblock websites and access your favorite content. These are just a few of the many reasons to use a VPN on your Mac — to learn more, check out our expert VPN tips, guides, and advice.

  • Does Mac have a built-in VPN?

    Apple does not include a built-in VPN (virtual private network) in any of their Mac devices. To enjoy the privacy and security of a VPN, you’ll need to download a third-party VPN for Mac like AVG Secure VPN for Mac. Enjoy airtight security with bank-grade encryption on your internet connection and true online anonymity with a free trial.

  • Are free VPNs safe to use?

    In general, free VPNs are not reliable and shouldn’t be trusted. Not only are they slower than premium VPNs like AVG Secure VPN, they may also harvest your data or send your traffic to unsecured remote servers that can easily be hacked. In terms of your personal security and privacy, paid VPNs are much safer than free ones.
    While VPNs are legal in much of the world, some countries restrict VPN use. Always check whether VPNs are legal in your country before using one.
