@protonvpn Any updates on the disconnection issue for the macOS apps?

@nicole Hi, Nicole! macOS has a bug in their IKEv2 framework which can cause connection drops. Impacts all VPNs. Using Tunnelblick with OpenVPN however, solves this, and we will also be adding OpenVPN support into the official client soon.

Here's the official bug report with Apple: It's been 2 years and they haven't fixed it yet, despite quite a few complaints. We will be switching macOS to OpenVPN soon for this reason.

@protonvpn Thanks for the information! Any idea when we can expect to see the addition of OpenVPN on the Mac app?
