Pptp Vpn For Iphone
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Getting a pptp vpn for your iphone isn't that difficult. All you need is a credit card, a mouse, and a brain. Setting it up is even easier.

There are many companies to choose from for quality pptp vpn's for iPhone. Some of the larger companies that provide this service are 12vpn, Strongvpn, and Astrill. Any of the above would do the trick. The key is to find a company that fits your style.

One of the advantages of choosing Astrill for the pptp vpn for iphone is that they have a filtering option, meaning that you can tunnel certain sites and applications while leaving others untouched. That means that for example, if you're outside the USA and want to watch Hulu or outside the UK and want to watch BBC iPlayer, you could tunnel these sites while leaving other features of the iPhone connecting through your local IP address.

12vpn's pptp vpn for iPhone is also a good choice. The fact of the matter is that many iPhone users are not computer savvy - they got it for the games, or the look. That's ok, we can't all be super-nerds. 12vpn makes downloading and setting up your pptp vpn painless, and has a great support team to get you though the tough times.

Strongvpn also has a very reliable pptp vpn for iPhone. They are one of the most trusted names in vpn services, and you can be sure that if you choose Strong vpn they will get you set up and surfing anonymously.

However, if you are considering getting a pptp vpn for your iPhone, I'd like to suggest that you consider L2TP/IPSec instead. If there is no specific reason why you would choose PPTP over these other protocols - perhaps you just heard from a friend - then L2TP/IPSec would be a better choice. PPTP is a kind of "first generation" vpn that is less secure than these other protocol. While set up leans to the simpler side when compared to L2TP/IPSec, in the end, the layered security provided by L2TP/IPSec will have much more benefits, including being less susceptible to hackers. L2TP requires "certificate authentication" which means that even if a hacker knows your password and username, it's still useless without the proper certification. Most vpn services that offer PPTP vpn protocols will also offer the other two side by side.

Setting up a PPTP vpn for iPhone is as simple as finding the "general" button, getting in the vpn settings, and entering the information provided to you from your vpn service. There will usually be a server name, user name, and password that your vpn service will provide you with. Then turn the vpn on. As you can see, one of the advantages of having a PPTP vpn for iPhone as opposed to l2TP/IPSec is the simplicity of setup, so this is still a popular choice among iPhone users.
