In this digital age, all of us rely (in one way or the other) on the Internet for our everyday tasks like banking or browsing. That’s why in this tutorial I show you how to setup the IPVanish iPhone app in simple steps. I also have tutorials that show you how to setup IPVanish on Firestick, Android, Windows, and even Mac.
Why? Because we risk our privacy every day. This fact makes VPN (see Virtual Private Network on Wikipedia) service such an important factor when it comes to browsing anonymously through the web. Crazy hackers and government agencies cannot track us if we use a good VPN service.
IPVanish VPN is counted in the list of best premium VPN service providers. It works for iPhone, Android, Windows, Linux and every other manufacturer. It is super easy to install and is very cheap compared to its counterparts. Let’s take a look on how to install and set-up the IPVanish VPN on your iPhone.
IPVanish iPhone setup:
IPVanish iPhone setup should not take you any more than a few minutes. Here are the steps you can follow to install and get it going on your iPhone.
- From the home screen of your iPhone or iPad, go to the “App Store”.
- Once in the app store, search for “IPVanish” and select the app that comes on top from the search results.
- Click on the download or “Get” button and let it download and automatically install.
- Once installed, press “open” that should lead you into the app.
- In the app, press “allow” in the pop-up window that appears.
The setup is done! Now you just need a username and password to access the service.
Creating an account:
Follow these steps to create your username and password and select a subscription plan of your choice.
- Open Safari (or any other browser on your iPhone) and type this link http://bit.ly/ipvsecret to get an exclusive discount of 60% across all the subscription plans.
- That link should lead to the official website, press the orange colored “start now” button to proceed to the plans.
- Choose any one of the three given plans that are 1 Month, 3 Months or 1 Year of subscription to IPVanish.
- Enter your email address, type a password, type-in the payment details and finish the process.
Now you have a premium account, and the IPVanish is all set to run on your iPhone to make it secure.
Logging in is very simple. Just type your login info in the app and let’s proceed to some features of the IPVanish app.
After logging in, you will be shown the tutorial on how to effectively use the service; you can either take it or skip it to go right into the app. At the very bottom of the screen, you will now see a big green button “Connect” press it to connect to the VPN server.
Since it is a paid premium service, the IPVanish VPN is highly customizable, you can select any country you want, for example: if you choose the United States, you will be connected to the IPVanish VPN servers in the United States.
This is probably the best feature. Click on the Gear icon in the top right of the screen which is settings. In the advanced settings, enable “On-demand,” it means that the IPVanish VPN will automatically connect to the servers whenever your iPhone is connected to the internet. There are several other useful features.
