UCSS recommends using UCSS for Mac, because this software is updated regularly.
How to Set Up UCSS for macOS

Do not open the app directly from the disk image file (dmg file). Please be sure to move it to the application folder before using it. If you open it from a dmg file, you will not be able to use it normally due to insufficient privileges.
There are two different versions of the software. One for computers using Intel processors, and another for computers using Apple Silicon processors. Please download the software version designed for your processor.
To check your processor, refer to here for how to distinguish.
Connect to UCSS

Once the software installation is complete, you will be redirected to the login screen. Enter your email and password, and click “LOGIN”. The server information will load in a few seconds.
You can change the server by selecting the server name, then click “CONNECT” button.
When you log in for the first time, you will be asked for permission to connect to the system network. You must give this permission to access the system’s network in order to connect.

- Global: Route all traffic through the UCSS server
- Smart Routing: Route all traffic through the UCSS server except Mainland IP (bypass Mainland IP)

“Lauch at login” makes the program launch automatically when you start up your computer.
UCSS for Mac measures ping differently from most other apps. It uses the http header instead of ICMP/TCP which results in a larger ping measurement. Please use a speed test app for accurate ping measurement using ICMP/TCP.

This program checks for updates and installs them automatically every time it starts up. If you need to update, simply restart the program.
