Cloak, the best VPN service for the Mac and iOS, continues to be one of my most used purchases. Public Wi-Fi is becoming more and more prevalent, and I’m becoming more and more terrified of using it. Cloak has a feature built in called Overcloak that you definitely want to make sure is enabled.
Overcloak is an extra layer of protection on Cloak for Mac. There is normally a few seconds of data transfer from the time you connect to a Wi-Fi network and when your VPN can connect. With Overcloak, Cloak blocks all traffic from non-whitelisted networks until Cloak can connect.
To access the settings, click the Cloak menu bar icon, and click Preferences in the settings gear. Under Networks, you’ll see a listing of your white-listed networks. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see Activate Overcloak on untrusted networks. Just enable that option, and you’re all set.
