Viscosity for Mac

27 April 2021

Graphical user interface for OpenVPN.

What is Viscosity for Mac

Viscosity is a first class VPN client, providing everything you need to establish fast and secure OpenVPN connections on both macOS and Windows. Viscosity caters to both users new to VPNs and experts alike, providing secure and reliable VPN connections. Whether remotely connecting to your workplace network, home network, VPN Service Provider, or other setup, Viscosity ensures it's done with ease and style.

With Viscosity and OpenVPN you can securely connect to your home or company network from a remote location, protect your network traffic when using public or wireless networks, access websites with country restrictions, and tunnel through restrictive firewalls and proxy servers to give your computer full Internet access. Viscosity can connect to any VPN server running OpenVPN, including most popular free and commercial VPN providers. Viscosity allows connections to be completely configured through a GUI, without any need to know how to use the command-line or OpenVPN's configuration file syntax. Advanced users still have full manual control over configuration options if desired.

Developer is a LIAR.

It’s been more than 4 years since they said "we are currently working on adding a feature to Viscosity to easily block traffic leaks from occurring."

Instead they’re worried about trivial things like "compatibility with menu bar managers" and "main menu automatic resizing and positioning"

No kill switch = NO WAY should anyone use this dangerous app!

Users are putting their security and privacy at risk and may end up receiving a copyright infringement notice if the connection is dropped while downloading.

Lack of a kill switch led me to purchase a VPN service whose app DOES have one. Now if I could just remember to always start it before opening my torrent client.

The price is wrong, here is $ 9 but when I go buy it tells me $ 14. We call this misinformation. The user environment has changed from the older version. I do not know if this makes its operation more complicated, but I can not rate it with speculation.

What's going on with sparklabs.com? The site has been down for over 2 weeks. Have they gone out of business? I've recommended to several people in the past week that they buy Viscosity. But now the app can't even be downloaded to try out, let alone to purchase.

STILL NO GD KILL SWITCH!!!

Went to be last night with torrents downloading, woke up to find Visocity yellow and "authenticating" while downloads were proceeding at nearly 1 MBps.

Now more than THREE YEARS since SparkLabs said "We are currently working on adding a feature to Viscosity to easily block traffic leaks from occurring."

I believe the spark has died!


Still no way to disconnect from multiple VPNs at once - you must click each connection individually.
I often add up to five or more before one connects, then I must click each of the others to disable, and that takes two clicks for each because the menu closes each time you click one.

Stupid annoyance that should have been fixed LONG AGO like the critical traffic leak!

NO STARS FOR YOU! ½ only. Come back one year!

BUT STILL NO KILL SWITCH!
This is a vital component of a VPN app!
Without it a user's privacy (and maybe their freedom) is at risk.

It’s been more than 2 years since the dev said "We are currently working on adding a feature to Viscosity to easily block traffic leaks from occurring."

PROVE IT ALREADY!
Why is Viscosity the only VPN app without one?
This app shouldn’t even be sold until the security leaks have been addressed!

To second the comments by @BigJohnson, I posted a comment on THIS macupdate page several months ago, outlining numerous security issues, missing features, and unfullfilled promises by the developer, and that comment has now disappeared from this macupdate forum. Which begs the question, did Sparklabs as the developer have the ability to remove a post on MacUpdate, or did MacUpdate assist them?

My observations were spot on, but apparently Sparklabs can't handle users exchanging thoughts and relaying their experiences on a open, PUBLIC forum for all to read.

I WAS a user of Viscosity but got tired waiting on promises to fix holes and upgrade features.
1) implementing KIll switch fucntion requires user to manually input scriptiing code...seriously, in this day an age to require the user to type in scripting commands for critical feature? This has to be done manually for EVERY connection definition you may have. As a user of PrivateInternetAccess, there are literally dozens of servers available.
https://www.sparklabs.com/support/kb/article/preventing-network-and-dns-traffic-leaks/

2) on top of that, the scripts provided to implement kill switch protection, IS FLAWED. I personally watched while during a download, I lost the VPN connection and my download continued on an unprotected connection.

3) Developer admits on their site that the licensing code in their Mac version has been hacked by pirates for years, and promised to implement cross-platform licensing. That's been YEARS since that has been on the website and not fixed, meaning if you want Mac and Windows you have to buy separate licenses, and since pirates know now to hack the activiation, legit users are paying for others to use the app.
https://www.sparklabs.com/support/kb/article/can-i-use-my-viscosity-for-mac-license-on-windows/
Seriously, if you are going to admit on your own site that your app has been hacked, and you don't do anything about it for YEARS, what confidence is that supposed to engender from end users?

There were many other flaws I mentioned in my initial post, won't bother repeating it all here as i wouldn't be surprised if I come back in a few weeks and this post is no longer here...

BE MINDFUL WHAT YOU POST HERE!

After posting some critical comments below, I've been banned from the Sparklabs forums.
I never actually received a "banned" notice and my account is still active, but my posts never appear anymore, whereas I had no trouble posting before. Tried to contact the developer but the contact page doesn't work right. So I created a 2nd account and tried to post my question there, but it never showed up either - evidently the dev. is as thin-skinned as Trump (or should I say Drumpf. Google it!).

After you post you get this message, "This message has been submitted successfully, but it will need to be approved by a moderator before it is publicly viewable. You will be notified when your post has been approved." Obviously mine are no longer being approved.

Because of the critical security leaks that were never fixed, as well as other missing features, and the dev. being a vindictive A-HOLE (had no qualms taking my money for his buggy app, though!), I'm giving it the lowest possible rating. There's no way it deserves the 5-star ratings it received with the problems it has!
With the existing leaks it's too easy to receive a warning from an ISP.

I started on Tunnelblick. Then I started using Viscosity. I LOVE VISCOSITY. I love how Viscosity makes it so easy to connect to my VPN. Viscosity is excellent software.

However, I have since abandoned Viscosity and Tunnelblick because of one SERIOUS SECURITY AND FATAL FLAW that leaves you completely exposed and unprotected.

The problem is that if your ISP changes your IP address - and they do periodically unless you pay more for a fixed IP address - or if your VPN server goes down, then both Viscosity and Tunnelblick lose their connection to your VPN.

After they have lost their connection to your VPN, Viscosity and Tunnelblick immediately expose your IP address to the wild. Any internet activity your apps are doing do loses its VPN encryption and protection. Anyone can now monitor your activity, obtain information you are sending and know your IP address.

For example, if you set Mail to send email at a certain time, yet the VPN connection is lost, your email is now sent unencrypted by Viscosity and Tunnelblick. This is horrific.

This security flaw is completely fatal and can be disastrous.

This means you cannot leave your computer actively using the VPN while you go somewhere else or sleep. You are limited to using the VPN only while at the computer. If you are in a hostile country, where your internet activity is being monitored, your privacy is completely lost and your internet activity is completely exposed along with your IP address if the VPN server connection is lost by Viscosity and Tunnelblick.

This security flaw can be partially mitigated by writing an AppleScript that will automatically quit specific apps you are using when the VPN connection is lost. But you have to manually install it with every server connection - a pain. And you have to continually update it with the apps you use with internet connections. It isn't enough if you have other apps active which you did not add to your script which can expose your IP address by interacting with the internet. Some apps may refuse to quit if they are active. And it still leaves you exposed from the time the VPN connection is lost and the app is quit.

I now use my own VPN provider's Custom VPN Client. It protects against disconnect exposure by performing what they call a NETWORK LOCK.

A NETWORK LOCK means ALL ROUTER AND INTERNET ACTIVITY IS SENT ENCRYPTED AND ONLY TO THE VPN'S IP ADDRESS, NOWHERE ELSE. AND IT STAYS ENCRYPTED EVEN IF THE VPN CONNECTION IS LOST. This includes all activity within your own local network. This means every app and background app's activity is encrypted. You don't have to worry about background apps exposing you. You will not be able to connect even to your local computers and printers unless you specify their IP addresses as OK to connect to.

With a NETWORK LOCK, even if the VPN connection is lost, all router and internet activity REMAINS ENCRYPTED and is still sent to the VPN's IP ADDRESS - nowhere else. Since the VPN's server cannot accept that data, it remains encrypted and becomes lost.

Your network and internet activity remains encrypted and protected at all times. No one can snoop and find what information your are sending or what website you connect to. Your privacy remains protected even if your VPN connection is lost.

Since Viscosity and Tunnelblick do not provide something like a NETWORK LOCK, they don't perform the primary reason for using a VPN - protecting your privacy. And this can be disastrous. Unfortunately, as nice and capable they are - particularly to connect to multiple VPN services - the flaw noted above is fatal to their use.

If Viscosity can do a network lock, it is not well documented. I wish the author of Viscosity includes an obvious NETWORK LOCK FUNCTION so I can recommend Viscosity again.

Purchased Windows and Mac licenses about 2 months ago, after using the trial. Using it to connect to Private Internet Access VPN service. Viscosity has been more reliable than PIA's own provided client software on both platforms. Connects/Disconnects faster, first try, rock solid, no drops. The ability to tweak the parameters after importing a saved configuration is very helpful. I love the PIA service, but its client software was always temperamental; now with Viscosity, best of both worlds. Viscosity supports AppleScript. Using AppleScript, I can create app shortcuts to auto launch different connections depending on what I what. The additional flexibility in my opinion makes it worthwhile over Tunnelblick; I mean really, at only $9 it is a great value. I took off 1/2 a star because it doesn't support cross platform licensing yet (buy one license for both Windows and Mac), but that is coming they say.

This is just a remark concerning version 1.4.9. I'm on 10.6.8, and the 1.4.9 update doesn't work. I can connect to my VPN provider, but traffic isn't routed through, i.e. websites don't load etc. So there seems to be a serious bug in 10.4.9. After going back to 1.4.8, which you can still download from the dev's website, everything is fine again.

Open Question to anyone: I subscribe to Private Internet Access, a hosted server service with VPN access. (BTW, highly recommended, servers are rock solid, have maintained unbroken connections for DAYS at a time). PIA provides users with their own Win and Mac clients, and I don't have any issues with them, they work as advertised. Is there any advantage to using Viscosity versus the clients provided by PIA?

Amazingly Mac-like and simple to use. Been using Viscosity for years and is my trusted VPN app to use for my OpenVPN and other secure connections. Manages several profiles at once while maintaining a clearly laid-out set of master preferences for the app. Configuring your VPN connections is as simple as opening a VPN configuration file typically provided by any of the half-dozen leading VPN providers out there. Developers were smart to make Viscosity as powerful as any networking expert would want while at the same time providing an uncomplicated configuration interface that clearly marks the most commonly-used options and their functionality in places that are to find—and then get out of your way. Viscosity is great for any level of skill. If you are looking for nothing more than an ON/OFF VPN switch, look no further. And, as others have also mentioned, you absolutely cannot beat the $9 price tag for such a wonderful app.

Well, I figured that after using TunnelBlick for ages I might give this a go. I like TB but it can be flaky on some occasions and the annoying window that pops up notifying you of the open VPN bug is a pain. Unfortunately Viscosity can't even manage a connection - I've tried 3 different servers. Trying the same connections with TB works first time. Additionally, TB has a handy window that pops up during the connection process - It helps you know where to start looking for a failed connection (password etc.); Viscosity doesn't appear to have this. Looks thorough in terms of configuration and the importing of saved servers from TB was handy, but ultimately all the bells and whistles under the sun are no use if it won't actually connect... It could be that I need to dig much deeper within Viscosity to find what is needed to connect, but in that case maybe it isn't really for average bods like me who just want something that you can set up and use quickly.

Right, first things first. I have used a lot of VPN boxes over the years mainly IPsec (and Netgear's) implementation, there have always been little niggles. IPSecuritas has been the only saving grace. Synology just upgraded their firmware to 3.1-1742 and it brings Airplay, but Also VPN support (either PPTP or OpenVPN). I think that OpenVPN. Viscosity is a really elegant, solid VPN client, made a profile on the VPN Server, exported it, imported into Viscosity...connection. A good solid connection. First time. 1 simple thing it does is; push all traffic through the tunnel - Netgear does not. That is worth the $9 alone. Very impressed. Viscosity is the kind of utility that looks like it belongs on the mac.

After struggling to get Tunnelblick work on 10.6, I gave Viscosity a try, and boy am I happy I did. It does what it needs and no more; a sleek and functional UI, I like the details pane showing throughput and its configurability. Checking the forums, the developer seems very friendly and fast/consistent answering queries and problems. This is definitely worth the money.

Everybody's tun tap working with 10.6? I get it to "stick" for 1 minute max... It says connected to tun0 but after a couple minutes it no longer works... well it says' it does "connected" but no net stat shows no input or output, websites can't connect etc... Would love if anyone has a clue how I can fix this or if you have ran into the same problem. I don't think it is with viscosity but 10.6?.?.? Thanks.

As I had to set a private VPN connection for the first time, I choose Viscosity based on other people review here at MacUpdate about different app of this kind. So I can't really compare Viscosity with the competition. What I can say, is that it was a matter of maybe just one or two minutes to complete the setup and preferences, and that everything is running smoothly ever since. When the free trial was over, I gladly bought a license at this very reasonable price.

ARTOORO, your totally correct. I love this app in all ways. Beautiful, works, and responsive dev. I can appreciate it more after using all the other "crap" openvpn gui clients.

Viscosity is better than any openvpn client you'll find for any platform. Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. I absolutely love Viscosity and use it every day. For the price you can't go wrong. Viscosity makes OpenVPN fun to use (especially if you've used other clients in the past)

When I saw this I jumped at it from all the issues I have with tunnelblick under leopard. The developer has been Johnny on the spot with the little issues I noticed in the beginning. With this current version all aspects of this application appear to be working properly.

Importing configuration from Tunnelblick was a breeze, and Viscosity has been running for three days without a hitch. Thanks to the developer for the work. It's great for OpenVPN users after all the trouble with Tunnelblick in Leopard.

Fired it up and it imported my Tunnelblick connections without issue. Really like the details screen showing you the connection information and the growl integration. Only issue at the moment is when I go to edit one of my imported entries I get the following error: An unexpected error occurred: (UnboundLocalError: local variable 'serverAddr' referenced before assignment) Hope this application remains free.
