Get A VPN For Your iPhone

The first step to enabling VPN on your iPhone is to get a VPN app. There are numerous free and paid options, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one that suits your needs. A good VPN app should also integrate seamlessly with the iOS settings so that you don’t have to worry about conflicting configuration settings when using the app.

Create A VPN Configuration For Your Network

Now that you have a VPN app on your iPhone, you need to create a VPN configuration for your network. This is a bit more involved, but not difficult. Simply follow these steps to connect to a PPVPN server, choose a username and password, and test the connection:

  • Go to Settings, then select WiFi.
  • Scroll down and click on Use a VPN.
  • Now you’ll see a list of VPN apps that can be used to connect to a PPVPN server. If you don’t see PureVPN in the list, it means you don’t have any VPN apps installed on your device. If that’s the case, you can download the app from the App Store. It’s free, so there’s no reason not to give it a try.
  • After you download the app, click on the menu button (three dots) in the top right corner and choose VPN Configuration. You’ll see a screen prompting you for a server address and login details. Enter your server address (which can be found on the website of your service provider) and login details (usually your email address) and click Next. You’ll see a screen confirming the details you entered. If you want, you can also add a description of the VPN configuration and select the Keep default option to continue using the setup that Apple comes with or you can choose an alternative option. If you keep the defaults, the app will ask you to confirm your Apple ID and password when it starts up for the first time. You can also choose to encrypt all of your network traffic with a VPN so that your Internet connection is secure when traveling abroad. Selecting this option will also prevent your network traffic from being recorded by state-sponsored hackers or corporate espionage teams. When you’re done, click on the Save button at the bottom to save your VPN configuration. You can always come back and make changes to it later if needed. Also if you want, you can choose to delete it from the device at any time after making the configuration.
  • Now that you have a VPN configuration, you can use it with your device whenever you want by selecting the Use a VPN option in the Settings app. Your iPhone will then check for the VPN connection every time you use it and if there’s no connection it will prompt you to reconnect (if you’re already connected, it will not ask you to reconnect). Once you reconnect, you will see a notification at the top of the screen that your Internet connection is now using a VPN.
  • If you decide that you no longer want to keep the VPN configuration on your device, delete it from your phone by selecting Settings and then Advanced. You’ll see a list of all the apps you have installed on your device. Locate the app with the VPN configuration and click on Delete to remove it.
  • Now that you have a VPN configuration on your device, you can use it to connect to the Internet whenever you want. However, if you decide at some point in the future that you want to connect to the Internet without using the VPN, you’ll have to delete it from your device again. If you somehow end up connecting to a malicious website or downloading a virus from an infected app, your device will be at risk of getting infected. It is, therefore, important to only use the VPN when needed and then delete it once the need has passed. You can always create a new configuration if needed and there’s no need to worry about running out of space on your device because there are numerous free locations to store data.

Connect To A VPN Server Using The iOS Device

After you have a VPN configuration on your iPhone, you can connect to a VPN server using the device. To do this, simply enter the server address (which can be found on the website of your service provider) and login details (usually your email address) in the Settings app and click Connect. You’ll then see a progress indicator as the device connects to the server. Once connected, you’ll see a notification at the top of the screen that your Internet connection is now using a VPN.

VPNs are an essential security tool for anyone who uses the Internet. There are numerous benefits to using a VPN, not the least of which is the fact that your personal data is now more secure when traveling abroad. It would be best to say that using a VPN is comparable to using a lock on your front door. It’s better than nothing, but it also doesn’t offer the absolute best security. If you want to be truly safe online, connect to a VPN server and use the “Keep VPN connection” setting so that your network traffic is always encrypted when you’re online. Also, make sure that you’re not accidentally disclosing any personal information when communicating with unknown persons online. People will often guess your username and email address when they see them in the clear. By connecting to a VPN service, you’re ensuring that your personal information is not easily accessible to anyone who might want to steal it. Of course, this also means that your personal data is now more readily available to known parties as well. If you want to be sure that your personal data stays private, then you should consider using a VPN that supports a no-logging policy.

After you’ve connected to a VPN server, you can follow these simple steps to browse the web safely and securely:

Make Sure You Have Up-To-Date Virus Protection

Since you’re now connected to a VPN server, it’s a good idea to make sure that your security software is up to date. The last thing you want is for the software to catch a virus, especially one that is designed to escape from quarantine and propagate through your system.

There are various free antivirus apps available for the iPhone. It’s best to download them from the App Store because this way you’ll be sure that you’re always up to date with the latest virus signatures. If you decide to install a third-party antivirus app, make sure that it’s fully integrated with the iOS software so that it doesn’t conflict with the built-in security tools.

Reduce Your Internet Connection Activity

Now that you have a VPN server configured and running on your iPhone, it’s a good idea to reduce your Internet connection activity. This can be done by reducing the number of unnecessary apps that you have downloaded from the App Store as well as turning off unneeded services in the browser. You can also visit less frequently used websites and avoid downloading large files (such as games) because these activities utilize more bandwidth than you have available.

VPNs can be used to secure sensitive information when traveling abroad. They are also essential for protecting your personal data when using public Wi-Fi overseas. If you’re using public Wi-Fi in a country where data protection is guaranteed (such as the UK), you should strongly consider connecting to a VPN server. Many VPN services offer useful features such as an automatic connection when you log on from abroad which ensures that you never miss a beat when traveling.
