Here is how you can get your Surfshark service credentials:

  1. Log in to your newly created Surfshark account and visit the manual connection guide.
  2. Scroll down on this page to see your various location configuration files, as well as your username and password.

You may need to log in before you get to this page. In this case, enter your e-mail address and password and then click Login.

Comment cela s'est-il passé ? Veuillez laisser un commentaire ci-dessous si j'ai oublié quelque chose ou si tout a fonctionné pour vous. J'aimerais avoir de vos nouvelles !

J'ai trouvé Speedify + Connectify est l'un des moyens les plus simples de faire fonctionner les choses instantanément et sans trop d'efforts. Vous pouvez utiliser d'autres VPN, mais vous avez toujours besoin d'un moyen de faire entrer votre téléphone dans le réseau VPN et ils ont mis en place ces deux outils pour le faire.

J'ai utilisé Google Fi de Comber, en Ontario, jusqu'au Québec et j'ai eu du service la plupart du temps, sauf dans le parc national du Mont-Tremblant, où la réception des téléphones portables est faible. Si vous le pouvez, essayez d'appeler via des applications WiFi, sinon cela coûte 20 cents la minute lorsque vous appelez chez vous aux États-Unis.
