OpenVPN Connect is the official iPhone client from OpenVPN Technologies.

  1. Install app from the iTunes store.
    Step 1
  2. Download the IVPN config files to your Mac/PC and unzip. Within the extracted folder are the config files which represent each server in the IVPN network. You will need one or more of these files in the next step depending on whether you want to connect to a server in a single location or wish to have all the locations available on your iPhone.
  3. To upload the configurations file/s into OpenVPN Connect, you have to either upload them to a cloud storage service such as dropbox or email them to yourself (or use AirDrop if you know how to use it).
    • To use dropbox, upload the config file/s to your dropbox account. On the iPhone, open Dropbox and select a config file. Click on the share icon (square with an arrow pointing up) in the top right corner. Tap on the Open in icon and then tap Copy to OpenVPN.
    • To email, send the config file/s to an email address that is accessible on your device. Open the email and tap the icon of the configuration file in your email. Choose the option Copy to OpenVPN.
  4. Tap the green "+" button from within the OpenVPN Connect app to add the server.
  5. Enter your IVPN username that begins with letters 'ivpn' and any password.
    Only your account ID is used for the authentication. The password field can be empty or set to anything, like "ivpn", if your client requires a non-blank password.
    Click on the save slider if you wish to save your credentials. Click on the Connection slider to initiate the connection.
    Step 2
  6. Once connected you will see the new status Connected and also a VPN status bar icon. You can click on the + symbol to see more information about your connection.
