Next input your username, password and VPN IP address, which is supplied in your VPN Details page in ‘My Account’.

Ensure the ‘Kill Switch’ option is selected – this will stop the internet connection if the VPN drops out to ensure your real IP address will not get exposed.

The two other options ‘Keep Connected’ (the VPN connection will always stay active even if you try and disconnect) and ‘Windows Startup’ (the VPN connection and application will start when you turn on windows) these can be unchecked unless you prefer to use those options.

Once you have input your details, click save and navigate to the ‘home’ tab.

Click the connection button.
