"Intrusive, overbearing"

February 26, 2015  |  By chrisw201

 |  Version: FortiClient 5.0.5


Allows Mac users to connect to corporate proprietary Fortigate and Fortinet VPNs


Tries to be more than a VPN client, unnecessarily inserts itself into the OS start up utilities, includes unwanted, unneeded and over-protective web filtering and constantly interrupts you with notifications that it has updated itself. On one of my 2 Macs it inexplicably and infuriatingly drops the connection every few minutes. Looks and behaves like a Windows port not something intended for Mac.


Wish I did not need this to connect to my work. I would gladly dump it.

"Happy to be rid of it"

March 06, 2014  |  By teritee1008

 |  Version: FortiClient 5.0.5


It might be good at blocking viruses, but there's no way to know


The parental controls seem to have been preset by some right-wing Christian extremist and I was unable to change the settings. I mean, come on — "alternative beliefs" (as beneficial and innocuous as meditation) are harmful to children? Hello? Many good and uplifting sites were blocked and it's a pain to send a message for each one. If I remember correctly, guns and war games were allowed! Now that's something I would have been more inclined to block.
