Before installing, you need make sure to sign up for the service, by creating an account on Hidden24 and purchase an active subscription.

After you have subscribed to Hidden24 you need to create a VPN connection on your computer
(and/or phone, iPad or home wifi router), to be able to connect to our datacenters.

You need to do this only once for each computer or device.



1. Which one: L2TP/IPSEC or PPTP?

We offer both L2TP/IPSEC or PPTP connections for your VPN.

L2TP/IPSEC is safer (256 bits encryption) and faster and generally recommended for computers, phone and pads. However, if you want to protect your entire home network, and get a UK IP-address for every device on your home network (including SmartTVs, FireSticks and AppleTVs), then some routers can connect to PPTP (128 bits encryption). We will start with instructions for L2TP/IPSEC, and you can find instructions for PPTP further down on this page.

2. Instructions for L2TP/IPSEC

Please follow these instructions to create an L2TP/IPSEC VPN connection, and start using Hidden24 with your new login and password. If you need more help, there are more detailed Installation Guide PDFs for all kind of devices further down on this page.
