How do I install and configure a VPN on my iPhone?

The only way to reliably protect and save all the information on your computer and smartphone is to install a good VPN service.
How do I set up a VPN on my iPhone so that it works steadily and effectively? So that even a novice can deal with the installation and configuration, let’s consider setting up a VPN on the example of ExpressVPN service, which is one of the best in the business.

6 Steps to Secure Surfing via iPhone with Apps

1.From the start, you’ll need to download a VPN for iOS on the AppStore, where you can find free and paid VPNs. In this case, type ExpressVPN into your search.
2.You need to download and install the app. You may be asked to update your operating system to use the app – just update your iOS to the latest version so that the app works stably.
3.When the installation is complete, you’ll need to click on the app icon, register, and log in to the app. To log in, use the email and password you used during registration.
4.Once you’re logged into the app, you’ll need to set up a VPN connection. You need to click on “Install” in the upper right corner.
5.If you want, you can allow the collection of anonymous statistics, with which it will be easier for the developers to improve the application. This is only at the desire of the user himself. By choosing paid VPNs for iPhones or any other devices, you can be sure that your data will not be used against you.
6.As the app is connected and logged in, all your data will be reliably protected, even when accessing the Internet from unfamiliar places.

Setting up a VPN on the iPhone manually

Naturally, connecting to a VPN on the iPhone using the app is much easier. But it is possible to connect manually. The free VPN Gate, L2TP/IPsec technology, and built-in operating system software are used as examples. Manually setting up a VPN on the iPhone is as follows:
Go to the Settings app, select the VPN option and click “Add VPN Configuration”;

select L2TP in the “Type” field and write an arbitrary connection name in the “Description” field;

when all the fields are filled in, you need to enter the address of the VPN server that you want to use to connect to the Internet (to connect the server you need to go to, and there look at the table Public VPN Relay Servers, where you can choose the server);
after selecting the server, you need to copy the string with the ending … or numeric IP (the first option is optimal) to the “Server” field
In the field “Password”, “Account” and “Shared key” you need to write the word VPN and click on it;
to use the private virtual network, you just need to change the status to “Enabled” in the setup menu.
As you can see, connecting a VPN on iOS using the app and manually is easy enough. The sequence of actions in all the services is actually similar, so you will not have any difficulties during the connection.
