A window will pop up, asking you to enter your username and password. Unless you have changed your credentials, the default username is admin, and the default password is admin
Once you have logged in to the Control Panel, select VPN in the left sidebar menu.

Password: your ZoogVPN service password

Step 5 – Download Configuration Files

Once you have downloaded the files, go back to the control panel of your router and click Choose File in the “Import .ovpn file” section
