How To: Update the GlobalProtect VPN client on a Mac computer

When there is an update available to the GlobalProtect client, a window will come up after you connect, informing you of the update.

  • NOTE: During installation, the client will disconnect – do not have any applications running that require the VPN for access.

Click Yes to download the update in the background (click image to enlarge). This should only take a minute or so.

Once the download is ready, a new window will come up asking if you want to install it now. Click Yes to finish.

After installation, you will need to reconnect to the client.
