How bypass the login/password window when Eddie starts (Mac osx)

Recommended Posts



very problematic for me, because my kids use the computer. If they click on "cancel", VPN doesn't starts !


Is there a workaround to bypass the login/password window when Eddie starts (Mac osx Mojave) ?


Thank you

If you use default Eddie client then make a file 







with content:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">


Then copy your .airvpn folder from home directory using 

sudo cp -r ~/.airvpn / 

After restarting your computer Eddie will autostart. In Eddie preferences you'll need to check Connect at startup.

thanks, is it secure manipulation ? no risks ?



As much risk as there is, willfully bypassing a security measure :)

Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please also do not run Tor Exit Servers behind AirVPN, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.

Basically the LaunchDaemon trick is to run the Eddie process as root user. The username and password prompt is to allow temporary privilege escalation to run parts of Eddie as the root user.

While you can bypass this, you should NOT.
