Hey there! Pretty simple, just jot down the VPN login details from your provider and then follow these steps on your iPhone:

  1. Choose Settings from your home screen.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on VPN.
  4. Tap Add VPN Configuration.
  5. Tap Type and select the VPN protocol type you wish to use.
  6. Tap Add Configuration in the upper left corner of the screen.
  7. Enter VPN settings information, including description, server, and remote ID.
  8. Enter your username (or certificate), and password.
  9. If you use a proxy, enable it by tapping Manual or Auto.
  10. Tap Done.
  11. Toggle the status switch on under VPN Configurations.

For more detail and other devices, we have a VPN 101 article with everything you need to know. And if you are looking for a VPN provider, we have a comprehensive VPN review (and most of these providers include an iPhone app, which means you won’t even have to do the steps above, it’s all automatic).
