How does ZenMate work? Is ZenMate safe?

ZenMate VPN (VPN, short for "Virtual private Network") creates a tunnel between your device and our server network. This impenetrable tunnel prevents snoopers, hackers, governments and ISP’s from spying on your web browsing activities, downloads, credit card information or anything else you send over the network.

Use ZenMate to protect your device at home or in a public WiFi. Your IP is hidden, your internet unrestricted and your privacy protected. We are using tested industrial grade encryption standards which we are delivering through our unique lightweight solutions.

ZenMate fully secures and encrypts all traffic on your browser (available for Google Chrome, Firefox, and Opera), desktop computer (available for Windows and Mac OS X), and mobile devices (available for Android and iOS). ZenMate Ultimate users can also secure their other devices, while using ZenMate for OpenVPN to configurate a direct VPN connection.


Please note that the browser Extension cannot secure traffic going through other programs on your device. If you're looking for full desktop security, check out our full Desktop VPN Clients for Windows and Mac OS X.

If you need help getting started with ZenMate, check out or help articles for the extensions, mobile apps and desktop VPNs, or contact us directly.
