Your FoxyProxy accounts come with both proxy and VPN service.

These instructions explain how to connect to your VPN accounts using our native Windows app. If this does not work, try connecting using OpenVPN. OpenVPN can get around a lot of censorship, especially at corporations and ISP-level blocking. If you don’t want to install an app at all, try these instructions.

Step 1.  Download the VPN Utility

Download the FoxyProxy VPN Utility for Windows here. Advanced users only: A portable, zipped version without installer can be downloaded here.
