Requirements

In order to set up the Proxy on Windows you will need:

Go step-by-step through following instructions:

  1. Open the “Control Panel”.
  2. Click on “Network and Internet” (1).

    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 website account credentials (What is the difference?).
