Your CyberGhost subscription can be used smoothly with different devices, if it supports one of the native protocols OpenVPN, IPSec, PPTP, or L2TP/IPSec.
However, it strongly depends on the respective firmware and/or your device, if and, if yes, which of the named protocols are supported and if a connection can be established properly.
- You need a CyberGhost account
- You need a CyberGhost subscription (the Free Service doesn't include support of native protocols)
- You need an IPv4 Internet connection (IPv6 is not supported by CyberGhost)
And that's how you do it:
- Create a CyberGhost account: Since account creation is usually done from inside the client and since Chrome OS users have no client installed, CyberGhost provides you with the possibility to create an account on our homepage. Here is an instruction on how to manually create a user account.
- Purchase a subscription: You can order a subscription from right inside your account management; the activation will be done automatically for you. Here you learn, how to do it.
- Optional: Activate a prepaid key: In case you already have an activation key (maybe from a Bitcoin or offline sale), please refer to this article on how to activate a key manually.
