By Using our own Windows application

The easiest way to use our VPN service, is to download the Seedboxes VPN app, available for Windows 7, 8 and 10. It is the simplest and most elegant way to be able to switch among different servers and countries, just with a click of a button.

In order to download our VPN client, please use the following links:
