MAC Uninstall Instructions

In the past ClearVPN has run both the OpenVPN Connect client and Tunnelblick client on MAC systems.  We are now upgrading all clients to the latest version of the OpenVPN Connect Client.

 

You are still welcome to use the Tunnelblick client with your ClearVPN account but we will no longer be providing full support for Tunnelblick users.

Currently using Tunnelblick?

 

If you have any version of Tunnelblick on your system we suggest that you uninstall the Tunnelblick client following the uninstall instructions below. Once uninstalled please go back to the client area and follow the new install instructions for MAC to install the OpenVPN connect client.
