You may increase the number of simultaneous active VPN connections allowed in your plan by simply customizing your order during the check out process or by contacting [email protected]. Your subscription is for your own use only and you may not rent, lend, hire out or otherwise share your connection with another person.

We offer a conditional 7 day money-back guarantee for new subscription which are purchased using PayPal and/or credit card payment processing services only.
