With WireGuard

WireGuard is a simple and modern VPN protocol. It's generally considered faster and more secure than OpenVPN, but isn't as widely supported. We recommend using it when available.

  1. Download and install the WireGuard software from its official website.
  2. Create a new WireGuard key in your account and download the configuration file.
    You need one for each device that you want to associate with your account.
  3. Import the configuration in WireGuard.
  4. Activate the newly imported configuration in WireGuard.
    You can check your IP address by refreshing this page (or opening it on the device) and looking at the bottom.

With OpenVPN

OpenVPN is an older VPN protocol and software, still considered secure and one of the best VPN protocols available. It has the advantage over WireGuard of having various implementations for many platforms.

Some devices will let you upload and import a VPN configuration; the "Other / GNU/Linux" configuration option is made to be compatible. For most other devices and client applications, including most routers supporting OpenVPN, you will need to fill in a few parameters as described below:
CA certificate Download the following file:
Client / Server certificates None
User name and Password The same as on this site.
Host or Gateway Pick one in the server list, or for a random server.
Port / Protocol 1196 in UDP mode (or 443 in TCP mode; prefer UDP unless blocked)
Interface Type tun
LZO Compression Enabled
Cipher / HMAC BF-CBC and SHA1 by default, renegociable with a recent OpenVPN version
