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.

Doesn't configure the DNS Addresses for the VPN provider. It stays with the same given by the normal internet provider. Some services work, some not. Shimo works on that issue.

Best VPN tool ever seen. Using it also on Windows. Pro: You can double connections if e.g. the company profile only using company addresses but you want to be VPN'd on all ports.

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.

Most of us knowing Tunnelblick, yes. I use Viscosity because it is much more smoothy and very low cost. Only a green or red bubble nothing more. Great!

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.
