VPN users are encouraged to switch to Global Protect now and not wait until spring 2020. GlobalProtect is currently available for both Mac and Windows platforms.

At this time, GlobalProtect is only available for use with laptops and desktops. If you install GlobalProtect now on your smartphone or tablet, you will get the error “GlobalProtect is not licensed for this feature or device” when you try to log in. GlobalProtect will be available for Linux computers, smartphones, and tablets during Spring 2020.
