How to Remove VPN Startup Script

If you’re using a VPN and you’re experiencing problems after updating to macOS Catalina, you’re in for a treat. There’s a simple fix that will solve all of your issues. It involves removing one simple script from your computer. The file is called “”. If you’re experiencing problems after installing the VPN client, try disabling it and following the steps below.

Remove the VPN Client

In most cases, the answer is as simple as renaming the client application and uninstalling it. This will stop the VPN from running at startup and will allow you to continue using your VPN without issues.

Remove the VPN Startup Script

If that doesn’t solve your issues, it’s time to dive into something more technical. First, confirm that you don’t have any scripts in your home folder called “StartupFiles”. If you do, remove them.

If you’re not sure where to find your startup scripts, press “Cmd + Shift + P” and look for “Startup”. You’ll find all the hidden startup files, including those from your VPN client. Finally, rename “” to “” and you’re good to go! You can uninstall the client if it’s already installed.

You can repeat this process for any other scripts you find in your startup folder.

If this method doesn’t work for you, you have two more options. One, update to the latest version of the VPN client and ensure that it’s signed up for automatic updates (this may not be necessary, but it can’t hurt). Two, create a new Apple ID and use that for logging in to the App Store. You’ll have to link your old Apple ID to the new one to ensure you have access to all your previous purchases and apps.

Restore Your Default Apple ID

If none of that works and you’d like to go back to the way things used to be, you can try one more thing. Go to your user folder (in most cases, this is located at ~/Library/Saved/Username) and see if there are any files named “AppleID” or “iCloud.login”. If so, delete them.

If none of that works

If none of the above methods work for you and you still have trouble after performing the above steps, you may have a hardware issue. Try removing the battery from your iPhone for a few minutes and then reinserting it. Some batteries have a memory effect that can cause all sorts of issues, especially with macOS. Once you perform that step, try the above methods again.

If all else fails, it’s time to contact the developer of the VPN software you’re using. Hopefully, they’ll be able to help you out. If not, you’ll have to switch VPN providers or look into upgrading your Apple hardware.
