Mobility has revolutionized our relationship with technology, and in particular allows us to take a smartphone, a tablet or a laptop everywhere with us, and even across the world: with the development of roaming and Wi-Fi networks , it is rare to be “offline” abroad. On the other hand, it is essential to have a security solution that follows you with the same efficiency, and the use of a VPN on mobile devices is now essential. To connect with complete peace of mind on a public Wi-Fi network, to bypass certain international content restrictions or to connect to sites that may need to be located in France, a VPN helps guarantee the confidentiality of your connection to the Internet in all circumstances. NordVPN is one of the easiest VPNs to install on your iPhone, Android smartphone, MacBook or laptop PC running Windows or Linux, and we’ll explain how.

VPN: install it on your smartphone or laptop

The easiest way to install a VPN on your smartphone or tablet is to use the provider’s application. NordVPN offers an application for iPhone or iPad from the App Store, or on Android from the Google Play Store. All you have to do is install the application and enter your credentials. During your first connection, you will receive an alert to validate the addition of a VPN configuration to your device. Accept it and validate if necessary with your password or fingerprint and you can then use your VPN via the application, as you would from your PC or Mac.

You can also manually configure your VPN if you don’t want to go through its app. For this, two protocols can be used. The first is OpenVPN. To configure your VPN with this protocol, you will need two elements: your VPN configuration file, available for example from the NordVPN website, and the OpenVPN client application, available on the App Store or the Google Play Store. In this app you can then add the downloaded VPN configuration. Here again you will need to validate some alerts on the authorizations to be granted.

Finally, with the IKEv2 protocol, also supported by NordVPN, you will need to obtain an IKEv2 connection certificate, available on your provider’s website. On Android, you will need to install an app to manage this certificate, such as strongSWAN VPN Client, available on the Google Play Store. On iOS, the IKEv2 protocol is no longer supported, but you can still manually install the certificate if the app is incompatible with your device. In any case, you can easily benefit from a VPN connection on your smartphone, tablet or laptop, and thus fully enjoy your trip.
