I downloaded the software and installed it, but I can’t activate it with my License Number.




If you are not behind a restrictive firewall:

Quit the VPN4ALL software. Then make sure that your computer is indeed connected to the Internet and that you are able to access a web resource like, for example, yahoo.com. In Windows, launch your VPN4ALL software with Administrator permission (right-click on the VPN4ALL shortcut on your desktop and select "Run as Administrator"). Copy your VPN4ALL License Number for PC/MAC (comes in the format XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXXX) and then insert the License Number you copied into your VPN4ALL software (Ctrl +V). Before you click Activate, make sure you didn’t copy spaces before and/or after the License Number. Then click Activate.

If you are behind a restrictive firewall:

Quit the VPN4ALL software. Then make sure that your computer is indeed connected to the Internet and that you are able to access a web resource like, for example, yahoo.com. In Windows, launch your VPN4ALL software with Administrator permission (right-click on the VPN4ALL shortcut on your desktop and select "Run as Administrator"). In VPN4ALL software, go to Menu -> Options -> Connection Tab, and enable (tick) “TCP Servers” and “Point-to-Point Connection”. Click Save before you close Options window. Restart your VPN4ALL software (Quit it completely and launch it again).After that, copy your VPN4ALL License Number for PC/MAC (comes in the format XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXXX) and then insert the License Number you copied into your VPN4ALL software (Ctrl +V). Before you click Activate, make sure you didn’t copy spaces before and/or after the License Number. Then click Activate.

If you click Activate, and nothing happens, or if Activate button is not accessible, you either don’t have access to the Internet or the License Number you inserted into your VPN4ALL software is incorrect and is not on record with us.

If instead an error message occurs, your License Number is most likely suspended. Access your Client Area (In your VPN4ALL software, go to Menu -> My Account) to get more information about the status of your License Number.
