Connecting with PPTP

To avoid any difficulties with the settings, we strongly recommend using our own VPN application for Windows.

If you have chosen PPTP as your connection protocol and do not know how to set it up, follow the instructions below.

If you already have a trial or premium access code, enter it on the VPN page and click Connect. Then, in your personal account, select Computer > Windows > L2TP/PPTP and click download.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when using PPTP:

  • Security: PPTP is a less secure protocol than IKEv2 or OpenVPN. However, it is still a secure protocol that can protect your data.
  • Privacy: PPTP can also help to protect your privacy by hiding your IP address. This can be useful for users who want to keep their online activity private.
  • Speed: PPTP is a fast protocol that can provide good speeds for most users. However, speeds may vary depending on the network conditions.
