When purchasing CyberGhost Online via our website, you won't receive an activation key as your subscription is activated immediately.
All you'll need is your Username and Password! All of the required info (subscription type and duration) is fetched from our servers, no activation key required.
Only Offline sales (purchased from a physical store), Bitcoin purchases and Promotional subscriptions include activation keys which have to be entered manually. Since the payment does not go through our website, no account can be created automatically and a key will be used to activate the subscription.
The activation of subscriptions purchased Online will, as mentioned happen automatically after the payment process is complete on the exact account used during the purchase.
If the application does not reflect the activation, you may not be logged in with the account originally used when purchasing the subscription.
To ensure that you're logged in with the correct username / password, please ensure that you relogin. You can consult the following articles (depending on Operating System)
NOTE: To use a subscription, ensure that you always login with the credentials you originally used while purchasing. If it was a newly created account, you should have the user name and password in the confirmation email sent to you by CyberGhost after the purchase (in case you did not save them).
If you have lost your credentials or wish to recover your account via email (the email address must be the one used for the purchase), you can always use the Oops, I forgot my password URL from the account login page.
