How to use Bitdefender VPN for Windows (full guide here)

With Bitdefender VPN you can keep your data private each time you connect to unsecured wireless networks while in airports, malls, cafés, or hotels.This way, unfortunate situations such as theft of personal data, or attempts to make your device’s IP address accessible to hackers can be avoided. Restricted content can be accessed as well, no matter the country that practices internet censorship.

The VPN serves as a tunnel between your device and the network you connect to securing your connection, encrypting the data using bank-grade encryption, and hiding your IP address wherever you are. Your traffic is redirected through a separate server; thus making your device almost impossible to be identified through the myriad of the other devices that are using our services.

  • VPN ON MY ANDROID PHONE JUST QUITS WITHOUT ANY REASON OR WARNING, IT JUST STOPS!!! i STILL HAVE TO GET IT UP ON MY LAPTOP. AND BITDEFENDER CENTRAL ACCOUNT DOES NOT CONNECT TO MY PHONE OR DOES NOT SAY IT IS SUBSCRIPED.

  • hello team,

    I'm facing issue with VPN where i tried to connect getting "connection error 182".

    please help if any one know about solution
  • When I use VPN, it takes absolutely for-EVER to connect to any site. If I wait, it will indeed connect.... When VPN is off, connecting to sites is almost immediate???

    The easiest way is to open the purchase email and click the button ACTIVATE PREMIUM VPN (see the image below). You will be redirected to Bitdefender Central, where you will have to sign in to your account if you are not already signed in.

    The server location for users wih the free version is automatically set by Bitdefender to the most appropriate server, while premium users have the possibility to change the server location they want to connect to by selecting it from the Virtual Location list

  • Error: 182 (Tunnel Connect) and also it disconnecting on its own. Would this have any chance of a hacker being able to disconnect it and not allow it to reconnect. I do have someone that has been signing into my computer when I am not on.
  • As Artist13 same message and for some reason it connects then after a couple of seconds stops and Google uses my location...was working perfectly earlier today
  • Any answer because I get the same thing, although I am not aware of anyone signing into my computer when I am not on.
