Download & install

Please start by downloading and installing our VPNGUI app for macOS.

Connecting to the VPN

Enter your 12vpn username and password and click Login.

The VPN GUI will connect to our server and download a list of available servers. This may take a minute.


Select the server you wish to connect to and click Connect.

Select Server

Disconnecting from the VPN

Click the Disconnect button.

"Update this app!"

Outdated versions of our app will show you a fake server called Update this app!.

Update the app to the latest version (found on this page) and do a Logout, then Login. (The Logout/Login is necessary to get your normal server list back.)


Do not use with SmartDNS. SmartDNS and VPNGUI cannot be used at the same time.

Old macOS

VPNGUI requires macOS 10.10 or newer.

If you still use macOS 10.9, please download vpngui 1.9.4.

Note: this old VPNGUI version lacks many important improvements. We highly recommend you update your macOS version.
