How To Use A VPN On An iPhone Or iPad


Virtual private networks (VPNs) are becoming more and more important for personal use. Make sure your movements aren't being watched online with our simple guide to get one up and running on your iPad or iPhone.

Internet privacy is becoming a more important topic with each passing month, and with a wide array of user friendly VPNs now available, setting up a VPN on your iPhone or iPad has never been easier.

A virtual private network, or VPN, is a service that your device connects to before it accesses the wider internet. This means that to anything trying to look at you on the internet, they don’t see you or your device; they see the VPN that you are connected to, in whatever form that takes. This helps keep you safe while browsing, and stops anyone being able to track your movements.

If you’re still undecided on which VPN to use, our team has been hard at work testing, checking and evaluating the best offerings on the market, so you don’t have to.

Have a look at our best VPNs of 2019 here.

How To Use A VPN On An iPhone Or iPad
As NordVPN is our favourite we’ve decided to use that as an example. You can check out our review of it here to find out why we like it so much.

Once you've signed up for an account with NordVPN, you can download the app from the iOS App Store here.

Open up the app on your device, and log in with the account you just made. You’ll be met with the screen below.
Hit quick connect, and a pop-up will alert you that you’ll need to grant the app permission to connect to a VPN.

Tap ‘Got it’, and hit ‘Allow’ on the following screen. You will then be taken to your options, where you will be asked to verify your decision. Do this, and you will then be taken back into the Nord VPN app, and will now be connected.

This process allowed NordVPN to set up a VPN setting on your phone. You can view these by going to your Settings > General > VPN. You’ll see a screen like this, which will show you the VPN settings you have installed.

The App will chose a default server for you, and the VPN is now active. Your browsing is now safe and anonymous as you are accessing the wider internet through the medium of the VPN. If you’d like to find out more about how VPNs work, have a look at our guide here.

While the VPN will automatically chose a server for your connection to route through, you can select one yourself if you want to make it look like you’re connecting from a specific country.

Go to the ‘Map’ or ‘List’ tabs at the bottom of the screen, and select the country you wish to route your connection through. Let’s make it look like we’re connecting through Hungary, because why not!

Tap the 'Power' or 'On' button next to your selection, in the middle of the screen to active the server.

Now the wider internet believes that your connection is coming from Hungary. It’s just that simple.

At the top right of the screen, you can tap the heart to add a server to your favourites so you can quickly find it again.

These VPNs are very easy to use, take less than two minutes to set up, and give you that peace of mind knowing that no one is able to track your browsing or activities.

The full versions of the software are available for less than the cost of a cup of coffee each month, which is a very small price to pay to ensure your online activities are kept away from prying eyes.

10in Google Home Hub Release Date & Spec Rumours: Nest Hub Max Spotted

Google introduced its 7in Home Hub just as Amazon updated its Echo Show to a 10in design, but the big G could be working on a larger smart display. Here's what we know about the 10in Google Home Hub, aka Nest Hub Max.
We couldn't help feeling sorry for Google back in October 2018 when it finally unveiled its long anticipated smart display - just as Amazon took the wraps off its second-gen Echo Show, now with a larger 10in screen.

Salted Caramel Pistachio-Apricot Baklava

This sweet dessert pastry is made with thin, flaky, buttery layers of phyllo dough and filled with sweet apricots, lightly salted pistachio nuts, and a bit of brown sugar. An apricot caramel sauce is drizzled over the cooled baklava and the entire dessert is sprinkled with coarse salt, providing a sweet and salty bang with each bite.

Microsoft No More Interested In Recommending Usage Of Internet Explorer

The Internet Explorer brand has been cracked down by software giant Microsoft about four years back while choosing Edge as its modern browser for Windows 10. The Internet Explorer has served for several years for Windows and for business compatibility but Microsoft is no more supporting it with the new web standards.

2019 Tesla Model S Review

Not quite a luxury car insideTight rear-seat entry/exitContinual updates keep changing featuresFussy doorsSix-figure price tag for most desirable versionsBUYING TIP
The low-price Model S is gone. If it must be a Tesla and you don’t need all-wheel drive or don’t have six figures, consider a Model 3.Though the Model 3 is all the rage, the larger 2019 Tesla Model S remains a stunning achievement and design trendsetter, albeit somewhat dated in the details.
The Tesla Model S wasn’t the first model from the California electric carmaker, but it’s the one that put Tesla on the trajectory as an innovator. It was unprecedented in many ways and has already earned a place in history books—the fastest volume-production plug-in car; the longest-range electric car; and the first production car built on a platform that provides over-the-air updates.
