Finding Your VPN Connection Credentials

How to find your VPN Connection Credentials from various providers. If your provider is not listed visit their website for help

Some VPN providers issue one username and password. This same username and password is used to connect to your VPN and  also to log into your VPN account dashboard. Amongst providers using just one username and password are IPVanish, Vyper and Ivacy.

 

For increased security more and more VPN providers are now using different details to connect your VPN to the ones used to log into your account. They are calling these 'VPN Connection Credentials'.

 

We get many questions about this. We have listed how you can find your VPN connection credentials with some of the most common VPN providers below. If your provider is not here then log into you VPN account and look for your VPN Credentials or contact your VPN providers support team for more information.
