Legacy Applications


If your device is too old to run our Official desktop/mobile application, don't worry. It is likely you can still run our Legacy desktop/mobile application instead.

The legacy apps are designed to run on older platforms, and they use an entirely different technology. This means they will work on nearly any device, even older ones.

 VirtualShield for Windows

The legacy app only includes basic VPN functionality. To take full advantage of VPN Plus (Ad & Malware blocking), and the additional features we offer, the official app is required.

Before attempting to install the Legacy app, check to see if you can install our Official Windows application first. If you can run this app, chances are you can run the new one as well.

The legacy apps will be deprecated over time. If your device is compatible, we strongly recommend installing the Official Windows application instead.

Common Questions

My device is not listed above, what can I do?
If your device is not listed, don't worry. VirtualShield will be coming to more devices very soon, including Linux, Android TV, Amazon Fire Stick and more. In the meanwhile, you can install our Legacy app instead.
My device is too old to run the app, what can I do?
If your device is incompatible, it is likely you can run our Legacy app instead. However, we recommend upgrading your system to be fully protected against the latest threats.
I own an iPhone 7, does that mean I can't run the app?
No, the Apple iOS version is different from the iPhone/iPad version. As long as you're using iOS 13.0 or later, then our app will be fully compatible. See our support article for more info on how to check your iOS version.
