Connecting an endpoint to FortiClient Cloud

You can use the following instructions to connect to FortiClient Cloud in one of the following scenarios:

  • If you want to connect a FortiClient Linux, iOS, or Android endpoint to FortiClient Cloud. Since you cannot create a deployment package for these operating systems in FortiClient Cloud, this is the only way to register these endpoints to FortiClient Cloud.
  • If your FortiClient did not automatically register to FortiClient Cloud after installation.
To register FortiClient Windows, macOS, or Linux to FortiClient Cloud:
  1. If your administrator is using FortiClient Cloud, you should receive an invitation email. Use the link in the invitation email to download FortiClient to your device.
  2. Run the downloaded installer to install FortiClient.
  3. After initial installation, FortiClient should automatically register to FortiClient Cloud. If FortiClient does not automatically register to FortiClient Cloud, enter the invitation code in the Join FortiClient Cloud field on the Zero Trust Telemetry tab in FortiClient.

  4. Click Connect. Ensure that the Status displays as Connected. FortiClient software is now licensed and activated.

To register FortiClient iOS or Android to FortiClient Cloud:
  1. Tap Connect to, then select FortiClient Cloud.

    1. If using FortiClient (iOS), tap FortiClient Cloud.
