How to Access a VPN on Your iPhone

1.First, sign up and create an account on the VPN provider’s website. At the time of writing, NordVPN was offering 68% off a two-year subscription.2.Download the NordVPN app on your iPhone or iPad.3.Open the app and tap the LOG IN button, and enter the account details you created in step 1.4.You’ll be asked if you want to allow notifications. You can choose your preference: they’re not essential.5.Tap the Quick Connect button.6.You’ll be asked to give permission. Click on Got it to approve.7.You’ll see a message saying that NordVPN would like to Add VPN configurations. This is the automatic setup part, so you can click on Allow.8.You may be asked to enter your passcode, or Touch ID or Face ID will be used to grant that permission. This process allows NordVPN to set up a VPN setting on your phone – you can see at Settings > General.9.You should now be connected to the best server, chosen automatically by the Quick Connect feature. That’s usually in the same country as you are.10.While the connection is running, all internet traffic from your iPhone will be routed via that server and is encrypted. You can switch to other apps and everything should work as normal, although certain banking apps might not work as they provide encryption themselves, so you shouldn’t need to use a VPN when using your online bank app.
After you’ve configured your iPhone for VPN usage, you can turn that capability on or off by tapping (yep) the VPN On or Off switch inside Settings.
