Setting up your iPhone to connect to My Private Network should take 5 minutes with these simple step-by-step instructions.


NOTE: PPTP VPN is no longer supported on iOS 10 onwards, however you can still connect to our service by selecting the L2TP protocol instead following the instructions here: Apple iPhone L2TP VPN Setup


Remember, you need an existing internet connection to connect to My Private Network. Make sure your iPhone is connected to the internet and that you are able to browse the web.

Double check that you have entered everything correctly and then click on Save.


Note: Error saving the connection?



Note: If you get the above error when saving the connection, this is because you already have an existing VPN configuration with the same Description i.e MPN GBR.


To resolve this, please change the Description to something else i.e. MPN GBR 2, MPN UK or alternatively delete the older VPN configuration following the steps outlined on our Knowledge Base here.

To connect to our service, turn on the VPN Connection by sliding the VPN ON/OFF button on your device to the ON position. (This slider can also be found at the Settings Menu)


The VPN connection is now created and can be connected



Step 4: You are connected


Once you have connected successfully, you will be able to see the VPN logo at top right bar of your iPhone screen.


The VPN logo is shown on the top right corner of your iPhone



Other locations


If you want to connect to any of our other servers, i.e. our USA servers, all you need to do is change the server name. For a detailed list of server names, please refer to our complete list of servers.


Note: You need to have the correct country Plan or our Global Plan to connect to different countries.
