In addition to regular subscriptions which get activated automatically upon purchase, prepaid plans such as offline sales are delivered via activation keys that are to be entered manually in your online account management page.
The time frame for activating a Key varies depending on the type of package:
- CyberGhost VPN activation keys purchased offline or with Bitcoin do not have an expiration date, meaning they do not have to be activated within a specific time period.
- Promotional activation keys do have different expiration dates. Promo keys from various campaigns done in cooperation with Online and Offline publications must be activated within a specified time frame. These codes usually expire a few months after the campaign in question if they are not activated. Exact expiration date of such promo keys is made clear on the card with the key (if physical) or email (depending on how the campaign is carried out)
