How to upgrade to Bitdefender Premium VPN on Windows

With Bitdefender VPN, you benefit from a daily 200MB daily traffic quota per device included in your subscription (a 500MB daily traffic quota is included only in Bitdefender Small Office Security subscriptions). The feature helps you secure your connection every time you need, and connects you automatically to the optimal server location. To get unlimited traffic and unrestricted access to content worldwide by choosing a server location at your will, upgrade to the premium version.

NOTE: The Premium VPN subscription is independent from the Bitdefender product subscription, meaning you will be able to use it for its entire availability, regardless of the state of the antivirus subscription. In case the Premium VPN subscription expires, but the one for your Bitdefender product is still active, you will be reverted to the free plan.

To upgrade to Bitdefender Premium VPN,  follow the steps  below:

1. Open the main Bitdefender VPN interface.

2. Click on the UpgradeGET UNLIMITED TRAFFIC button in the lower part of the window.

NOTE: We recommend using the email address you use when logging in to your Bitdefender Central account.

After finalizing your purchase, you will also receive two emails. One of them will include the invoice, the other will include a special link through which you can easily activate your newly-acquired subscription.

The subscription can be activated in two ways. The easiest way is to open the email and click on the ACTIVATE PREMIUM VPN button found in it (see the image below). Then you will be redirected to Bitdefender Central, where you will have to log in to your account (if you haven’t already done this). After logging in, the subscription will be immediately added to your account and you will be able to access all the features of Bitdefender Premium VPN.

Alternatively, you can copy the activation code displayed in grey text beneath the ACTIVATE PREMIUM VPN button (in the above image, the code is A5F7FKEMRZ), access your Bitdefender Central account, go to My Subscriptions, click on ACTIVATION CODE in the upper right corner and paste the code in the appropriate field. Then click on ACTIVATE and you’ll be all set. The subscription will be added to your Central account.


After upgrading to Bitdefender Premium VPN

The first time you open the Bitdefender Premium VPN interface after purchasing your subscription, you will be greeted with a window informing you that all the features are now unlocked. At the same time, all upgrade references will be removed from the interface.
