As you may already know VPN has become a necessity in today’s age. There are plenty of good VPNs out there, however, most of them are paid. However, the good news is you don’t have to separately pay for a VPN if you have a Setapp subscription as it already has CleanVPN available for download.

Thoughts On Setapp
Having used Setapp for a few days I can safely say that it is a must-have service for every Mac user out there. It has all the apps that you will ever need under one subscription.
Setapp is also very cost-effective as it only costs $9.99 per month. At that price, you are getting access to 230+ premium applications. If you were to buy individual subscriptions, then $9.99 would only give you access to 1 or 2 apps that are available under Setapp, so at this price, this service is a steal.
The quality of apps on Setapp is also pretty amazing. In addition to the 6 awesome apps that we have listed in this article, there are tens of other apps that we love on this platform and use on a regular basis. We recommend Setapp to anyone who loves to use third-party Mac apps and doesn’t mind paying a subscription fee for some high-quality applications.
