When you use a VPN connection, you want to be 100% sure that it's working as expected. Net Radar gives you insight in the real status of your VPN connection.

Easy to setup

Easy to setup

Thanks to the Setup Assistant you can set up Net Radar with just a few easy clicks. In most cases Net Radar will be up and running within one minute.



Net Radar uses clear unmistakable colors, symbols and warnings to indicate the current status of your private Internet connection.

Trust is good. But control is better.

Even if your VPN connection indicates that it's fully working, you never know for sure if that's really the case without a second opinion. That's where Net Radar comes in. Net Radar monitors your VPN connection status 'inside' your Mac by tracking VPN specific network configuration changes. After each change it uses an external GeoIP service to look at your Internet connection from the 'outside'. When both sides indicate a working VPN connection, then Net Radar will treat the connection as safe. Otherwise a clear warning will be shown.

Easy setup. Just a few clicks.

The Net Radar Setup Assistant helps you configuring your VPN monitor in a few simple steps. In the first step, you must decide whether you want to use the VPN monitoring feature or that you simply want to use the geo-location function. In the next step, you have to select a GeoIp server from a list that matches your current geographical location. You do this while your VPN is off. The resulting data will be used as a baseline for VPN monitoring. In the last steps you have to start your VPN, to check the correct working of the chosen GeoIp server. And that's all.
