The split tunneling feature allows you to choose which apps to run through the VPN. It is available on these Mac versions:
- Mac OS X 10.11
- macOS 10.12
- macOS 10.13
- macOS 10.14
- macOS 10.15
The split tunneling feature is not supported on macOS 11 (Big Sur) and above.
If ExpressVPN was already installed on your Mac before upgrading to macOS 11 or above, after the upgrade:
- You will see a warning that says “Split tunneling is not available with this version of macOS and has been disabled.”
- You will no longer see the split tunneling option in the ExpressVPN app’s Preferences… menu.
If ExpressVPN is installed on your Mac after upgrading to macOS 11 or above, you will not see the split tunneling option in the ExpressVPN app’s Preferences… menu.
The split tunneling feature is not necessary for the VPN service to work, but it allows you to choose the traffic you want to protect with the VPN. To continue using split tunneling, consider staying on macOS 10.15 or below.
