Say hello to the new PureVPN login system!
Almost a decade ago, when we first launched PureVPN and our client apps, we used to assign our users system-generated usernames. We have come a long way since then with
VPN apps for all major desktop and mobile platforms, browsers and TVs.
Now as we are gearing up to add even more products to our offering, it’s finally time for us to upgrade our login system so that we can give you:
Seamless experience across all our apps and products using a single identity and tools like login via QR code for TV users and magic links for mobile users
High degree of security using Two-Factor Authentication
And the ability to link with your existing accounts using Login with Apple ID
With this release, we have rolled out the first phase of this new system. In the upcoming releases, we’ll be rolling out exciting new features like two-factor authentication, login via magic link and login via QR code! After the update, users who signed up before April 2020 and have not migrated to Easy Login system will not be able to use the app until they migrate.
