How to set up VPN on Chromebook

In this tutorial we will show you how to set up VPN on Chromebook but first let’s see what are our requirements and recommendations.

Requirements

In order to set up the VPN you will need:

  1. A CactusVPN account. If you don’t have one you can try our services for free.
  2. Your VPN username, password and VPN server address. You can find them in your account on our website, by going to Settings.

If you still want to set up VPN manually, go step-by-step through following instructions:

VPN Setup instructions

  1. Sign in to your Chromebook.
  2. Click the menu icon and click on “Settings” (1).
