The two applications run on different connection protocols. The new Mac application available from the App Store runs on the IPSec connection protocol while the Mac app available from the SurfEasy website runs on the OpenVPN protocol
Torrenting is only available through the Torrent Optimized server which is only available from our Mac app available from the SurfEasy website.
Lastly, the shield for the new Mac application is different and will appear as shown below when the VPN has successfully connected. The app displays statistics for the Tracker Blocker and WiFi Security to show you how many trackers have been blocked and how many networks the app has protected. These features are included in the other Mac app, but no statistics are displayed.
