Many of us who use iPhones, Android or any other mobile device will want to be able to access the internet wherever we are. We want to be able to surf the web, send messages and do everything we need to do from the comfort of our favorite chair or on the road. The great news is that now you can have all of this on your phone with the help of a VPN (Virtual Private Network). A VPN is a technology which enables you to connect to a secure virtual network instead of using your own web browser. It works in a similar way as an iPhone or an android browser would connect to a secure Wi-Fi hotspot.
You can get a VPN app for both iPhone and android by downloading one from the Google Play or Apple’s App Store. Once you have downloaded an app you can either install it directly from the Specially Administered Mobile Application Platform. This is the fastest and easiest way to get your VPN service up and running. You will also need a high speed internet connection for your VPN service. VPN servers connect to the internet via a high speed connection so if you are using a dial up connection then you will experience a delay when connecting to the server.
If you already have a computer or laptop that is connected to the internet you can go ahead and download an iPhone or android VPN client. Then connect your computer or laptop to your primary wireless connection. On your iPhone or android, go to settings, click on VPN and enter the IP address or domain name of the public VPN server you have previously been connected to. On your PC, open the vpn app and follow the prompts. Follow the instructions and follow all onscreen prompts until you successfully connect to the VPN server.
If you don’t want to signup for a mobile VPN service you can just use the iPhone or android VPN app. The iPhone or android VPN app connects to a remote VPN server just like a regular iPhone or android device. You can simply put the VPN app on your startup menu and then use it like any other app. The only difference is that when you install the VPN app on your phone or tablet you become a member of that specific VPN. You can then log in to that VPN server just like you would using your internet browser. Logging in to the VPN is as simple as searching the vpn tab and saving the VPN network to your connection.
Other than browsing the web, you can use your smart phone as a device to browse the internet as well. One of the newest technologies that is becoming popular is the iPhone and android VPN. This is because of Apple’s announcement that they would be providing ios devices with internet access capabilities. This meant that iPhones and android could be used as browsing devices that had the capability to browse the internet.
There are two ways to get internet access with your new iPhone or android phone via a VPN server. The first way to get internet access on your iphone or android through a VPN server is to download the open source Open VPN software onto your computer. Once you have downloaded the VPN software onto your computer you should connect to a local network or WAN connection. If your router is configured properly you should have no problems connecting to your VPN server.
The other way to get internet access on your iPhone or android using a VPN server is to follow the manual setup instructions that come with the VPN application. This means that you would connect to your VPN server through another computer that is configured the same way as your iPhone or android device. You would go into settings and then click on VPN. Then you would click to save the VPN configuration. That is basically all there is to setting up a VPN on your iPhone or android.
So now you know how to set up a VPN on your phone you just need to do it. It really is that easy. Just download the VPN app, connect to a hotspot in order to get online, and then configure your VPN to allow websites that are off-limits to you to show up in the web browser. You now have instant access to the internet wherever you happen to be!
