> CHINA - DISCONNECTS after a short time?: Under the GoTrusted software Settings Menu, try changing the region to Asia or Europe. Also try Enabling/Disabling the 'Compatibility Mode' on the Advanced panel (Windows try BOTH Compatibility Mode 1 and 2). If that fails to fix the issue, please submit a support request at the bottom of this page for further troubleshooting steps.
> MAC OSX 10.9 Mavericks: There is an issue browsing websites with the previous GoTrusted software (188.8.131.52 or older) and OSX Mavericks. To fix this issue, please Quit the GoTrusted application and then update to the latest version 184.108.40.206 (REBOOT after installing) - download here.
> Windows 8 Connection Fix: If using Windows 8 and GoTrusted stays in 'Connecting...' mode for a long time then fails, please see this Permissions Fix. If the software Connects but you are unable to browse with Internet Explorer on Desktop ('THIS PAGE CAN'T BE DISPLAYED' error) - then make sure Enhanced Protected Mode is off as this is not compatible with all third party VPN software at this time (see here).
> If you are experiencing any issues on TV/video web sites playing content through the GoTrusted session, please contact support using the form below for possible troubleshooting steps.

1. I'm trying to connect, but the 'G' is stuck on Yellow and it says
'Initializing...' in status for more than two minutes?
Answer: If GoTrusted was previously working from this location, the VPN service software may have reverted to Compatibility Mode. Please click 'Stop' if not stopped, right-click the 'G' icon in the icon tray and select Settings. UNCHECK compatibility mode. Save and retry connecting. If that fails to fix the issue, Exit the current version (right-click the red 'G', select Exit), uninstall GoTrusted from Control Panels on Windows (Mac can skip this), then install the latest version from the Download link HERE. If the software still fails to connect, or if GoTrusted was never able to connect from your current location, then something may be blocking secure communications on your computer (such as an antivirus). Please use the form below to request assistance from GoTrusted support for this issue, letting us know your OS version, antivirus version, and location.
2. I have a new/other computer, how do I download and install and use GoTrusted on the new/other system?
Answer: You may install and use GoTrusted on as may computers as you like, the only limitation is one session connected at a time per account. Just click on the -Existing Users- link at the top of our website to access the Download page.
3. I just signed up
and I see a charge on my credit card for $.05 (5 cents), I thought
the trial was free?
Answer: What you are seeing is not a charge, but just an authorization to see if the card is valid during sign-up. The authorization will fall off within a few days and does not result in a charge of 5 cents. The VPN service trial is completely free and you can cancel any time during the 7 days without any charges.
using Windows Vista with a Verizon/Sprint/AT&T USB modem/aircard
and GoTrusted says that it can't find an Internet connection?
Answer: You must set your USB modem/aircard to use 'NDIS Mode.' On Verizon, from the VZAccess Manager > Tools > Preferences menu. Picture here. Sprint and AT&T has a similar setting from its Connection Manager. This is not an issue on Windows XP, and you may use the default modem settings for that OS.
I try to connect, it says that I need 'Administrator Privileges.'
I already have this, so what's wrong?
Answer: This error is usually caused because antivirus interfered with the GoTrusted installation. To troubleshoot this, temporarily uninstall your antivirus (don't just disable it), then re-install GoTrusted (download from the 'Existing Users' link on top of our website), then reboot and connect GoTrusted. It should connect normally. Then re-install your antivirus. If you still experience the error or if antivirus wasn't the cause, use the form below to request help from support for this issue. Please note your GoTrusted version and computer OS version in the support request (right-click the red 'G', select 'About' to find the version).
6. How do I know that the encryption
is working and that my traffic is being hidden?
Answer: Browsing to sites like www.whatismyip.com when disconnected will show your real IP address. After you connect your GoTrusted Secure Session, you'll see the IP address change when re-browsing to those sites. This is your Secure Session IP and indicates that traffic from your real IP address is being encrypted and hidden.
7. I'm using Windows 2000 and
I get an error when trying to connect?
Answer: Win2K requires a different version. First, Exit the current GoTrusted. Go to Control panel and uninstall it. Then go to the Program Files folder and Manually delete the GoTrusted.com folder. Then install version 1144 from: HERE
8. Why can't I send email through
my GoTrusted secure session but I can receive fine when using
email clients such as Windows Mail or Outlook Express?
Answer: When using GoTrusted's secure VPN service session, you are effectively coming from a distant location outside your ISP when using email. Most ISPs require specific settings when sending email from outside their network. You would encounter the same issue if using your laptop when traveling. Please make sure to set SMTP authentication or other settings required by your ISP for traveling users (see your ISP support page for 'traveling user' email settings specific to your ISP). If all else fails you may always use your ISP's web mail facility to access your email through a standard web browser.
9. I'm in an office and when I connect, the connection completes but
Internet traffic is blocked? - Office Web proxy.
Answer: You most likely have a proxy running in your office. Right-click the 'G' icon in the task tray and select Settings, enter the proxy server IP and port, then click Save.
*Note that authenticated proxies are currently not supported.
When connected, web browsers other than Internet Explorer may still use office web proxy directly if they are not set to direct connection. Either use IE as your browser (GoTrusted will automatically configure IE when the tunnel is active), or temporarily disable any proxy settings in other browsers to use the GoTrusted Secure Session.
11. Does GoTrusted monitor
any of my activities through the secure session?
Answer: No. With the exception for general network performance monitoring, GoTrusted does not monitor individual session traffic.
12. My email address changed,
how do I update my account Email Login?
Answer: Since your VPN service account information is tied to your Email Login created during registration, please use the form below to request a new Email Login for your account. Include the last four digits of the credit card or company account code used to open the account in your request.
13. How do I cancel the service?
Answer: You can use the form below. Select 'Cancel Service' for the topic. Make sure to include your account Email Login, and enter the last four digits of the credit card (if not using PayPal) or company account code into the message area.
