Installation options

Install from the Mac App Store

If you have an Apple ID configured on your device, simply search for "Twingate" in the Mac App Store or go to to be redirected automatically. The client app can also be installed in managed environments following a few additional steps.

Apple M1 Support

The Twingate client application includes native support for the Apple M1 processor.

Set your Twingate Network

Run the Twingate application. If you have never set up Twingate before, you will see the screen below. Enter your network name, eg. "autoco". Otherwise, you can skip to the next step.

Authenticate with your Identity Provider

Use the drop-down menu to connect to Twingate.

  • The Twingate client will open a new browser window to authenticate you with your identity provider. Use your existing login credentials. If you are already authenticated, you will usually not need to log in again.
  • Once authentication is complete, the browser will prompt you to “Open”. Make sure you click this to activate the Twingate client.
  • The browser window will then close and the Twingate client will show that it is now online.

At this point you can leave Twingate connected in the background. It will not affect your regular internet browsing and only intercept network traffic for private Resources.
