Probably most of the users who makes use of iPhones as well as iPads might have encountered situations in which they might have connected to the internet from different locations such as airports as well as coffee shops.
With the emerging demand for smartphones, online security as well as privacy concerns have reached greater heights. The fact is that whenever the users are connected to a public internet access point, the vulnerability levels increases considerably.
Users will have to take special care while accessing password protected websites as well as sending e-mails. There are increased chances of hackers gaining access to the users account and making use of it for their own purposes.
The fact is that all kind of important information such as credit card details, personal photos etc can be accessed by means of using public Wi-Fi spots.
The only solution that can prevent the users as well as their iPads or iPhones is a VPN connection also termed as Virtual Private Network service and then encrypting the user credentials.
For the iPads as well as iPhone, users require a VPN that accepts PPTP as well as L2TP connections.
VPN server: It will be represented in the form of an IP address as well as domain name
VPN Credentials: VPN Credentials will be the user name as well as password
The below mentioned has to be followed in a step by step manner to set up the VPN connection.
Navigate towards ‘Settings’
Then select ‘Network’
Users will then have to select ‘Create a new VPN Connection’
Then enter the user name
Enter the password
Enter the VPN Server address
Click on the ‘Connect’ button
Now the users can see that their device will be connected to a VPN within a few seconds and that all the traffic will be passing through a VPN Server.
The working of the VPN includes establishing a remote connection on to a server through a distant location. And once the user is connected to the VPN, all of the internet traffic are passed through that encrypted connection and thus will be kept protected.
The only drawback in using VPN is the slow browsing of the internet, but taking in to consideration the increased security features the device provides, it is always desirable for the user to compromise on this small drawback.
This is how the users can browse on iPad without disclosing their name.
