You can connect your Mac to an VPN when your company uses one by establishing an account in the System Preferences. The exact steps you need to take will depend on the type of VPN you are using however, most of the time it involves importing the security certificate used by your VPN.

If you do not have access to a business-specific VPN service, you can use your Apple computer’s built-in VPN settings in order to create an L2TP over IPSec connection. Open the System Preferences, and select Network. Select the + icon and then click it to add the VPN. To set up the connection, you’ll need know your server’s address, username for your account, password, and shared secret.
Once you have all of this information, you can start surfing the Internet using your Mac’s VPN connection. Your internet searches will pass through the VPN and make it impossible for anyone to observe your internet activities. This also helps protect you from your internet provider selling your information to a third party. Net neutrality, which is currently under threat by ISPs, could allow them to sell your browsing history and even your physical location.

Many entertainment websites block content depending on the country that you reside in however a VPN will allow you to get over this. You’ll need to download the Mac software and sign up with the most expensive VPN like Surfshark.
