    It is unnecessary to save your password here. Select Not for this site in the lower right corner. Select the download link that matches your operating system. Most Windows users have a 64 bit OS. If you choose the wrong one you will get an error message (no harm done).
       
  4. You should then see a page looking something like this.
    Select Run:

    NB! If you are running a newer macOS (like High Sierra), follow additional steps b and c. If not, jump to step 8.
       
    At some point during the installation you may be asked to accept a certificate for vpn.nih.no. Confirm this.

    b) (macOS) Click Open Security Preferences:

    At the bottom right of the screen (on the system bar), you will have an icon (globe) that shows whether you are connected or not. In Windows it looks like this:
