We use and promote open source VPN technology using the “Open VPN” architecture. One thing most people don’t know about VPN technology is that open source doesn’t necessarily mean free. What it means is that there is an architecture that already exists that can be built upon. Our Nue Wave VPN service uses this architecture to provide fast, reliable, and inexpensive VPN access to our clients. Instead of creating fancy apps plastered with our name and logo everywhere, we use open source apps that already enable you to use a VPN service. Instead creating apps we concentrate on delivering a stable, secure, and fast certificate gateway at a great price. We believe that you are going to love our service and this article will walk you through step by step on how to install VPN on your iPhone.
Step By Step Instructions for iPhoneVPN Install
The first thing you need to know is that Nue Wave uses “Open VPN” for the client application. This save you and us money in the way of providing the VPN service. Instead of creating our own app and paying Apple 30% of your VPN purchase for hosting our app in their app store, we pass the savings over to you.
Step One: Get the App for your iPhone VPN Install.
We recommend the Open VPN application. To get this app, go to the app store and search for “Open VPN Connect”. Press the get button to download and install the application. Once its been downloaded open the app for the first time, but stop there. We just want to make sure the application has downloaded, installed properly, and running in the background.
