    Applicable to:
    • Twingate Component: Client


    We do our best to make our software compatible with most products and services that are used in the corporate environment. However, some products are not compatible at this time, generally because they are trying to use the same system functionality that we require for operation.

    Most consumer VPNs  attempt to run in the background all the time, even if they appear to be disconnected, and will not let Twingate connect. 

    Known Incompatible Consumer VPN Clients

    • TunnelBear
    • TunnelBlick
    • NordVPN
    • ExpressVPN
    • InfoBlox BloxOne
    • PIA VPN (Private Internet Access)
    • HMA VPN (HideMyAss)
    • CSC/AnyConnect Umbrella Roaming Security Module


    If you are having connectivity issues with your Client and have any VPN software installed, even if you do not think it is running, we strongly recommend you do a full uninstall and see if that resolves the issue.
