The first time you’ll try to visit a website, a window will appear asking for an username and a password. Type your VPN username and password. You can find them in your account on our website, by going to Settings. Make sure you use your VPN username and password and NOT the website account credentials (What is the difference?).

Now your Proxy connection is ready to use. You can browse safely and anonymous.
