Windows Setup Guide

Here is how you get started with Windscribe on Windows.

Use Our App

Manual Setup

Step 1

Get IKEv2 profile and credentials (requires a pro account).

Step 2

From your Window 10 Start Menu, click on Settings

Step 3

In Windows Settings window, click on Network & Internet

Step 4

Click on VPN.

Step 5

Click the Add a VPN connection button to set up a new VPN connection.

It is very important that you create a new VPN connection profile instead of editing an existing one, as it will not work due to a bug in Windows OS.

Step 6

Select "Windows (built-in)" as VPN provider, enter connection name (any name you wish), select VPN type "Automatic". Select type of sign-in info "User name and password".

Make sure you choose Automatic and not IKev2 as it won't work due to a bug in Windows 10 OS.

Then input the Server address, username and password as provided on the Profile Generator page in Step 1. This username and password will NOT be the same as your Windscribe login.

Step 7

Click on the profile you just created, and click on the Connect button to connect.
