The great thing about an iPad is that it gives you the ability to do almost anything you would on a computer, but you will be able to do so in a smaller, more portable form. Your device will allow you to use many different applications and you will be able to do everything from checking your email to social networking to shopping to paying bills to watching movies. Because there is so much you can do with your iPad, you will most likely have a great deal of private information on your device. You will want to make sure that information is protected.
Here is something that you may not know. Whenever you use public wireless Internet, you will be exposing your iPad to hackers. Public Internet connections, like the ones at coffee shops, hotels, malls and airports, are left unsecure in order to make the connections available to the public. That means, someone, if they wanted, could hack into your iPad and get your private information. The only way that you can stop this possibility would be to set up a virtual private network. This type of network will protect all of your information. Setting up a connection is very easy. Here are the steps that you need to take to do so.
- Start by choosing a VPN service provider. You can find plenty of them online, and you will want to compare for the best options and prices.
- On your iPad, tap on the icon for “settings.”
- Then, choose the icon for “General”
- Tap on the icon for “Network.”
- Tap on the icon for “VPN”
- Then, choose “Add VPN Configuration.”
- You will either be using L2TP or PPTP. This will be decided by the VPN provider you chose. Select the right one at the top of the screen.
- You will see a page with various information that you will need to fill in. your VPN service provider will give you these details.
- Under “server” fill in a name that you prefer. It can be whatever you want your VPN connection name to be.
- For “Account” you will need to use the username and password given to you by the service provider.
- For “RSA SecurID, you will need to set it to off.
- If you are setting up an L2TP connection then you will need to include a “secret” that your provider will give you.
- If you are using a PPTP connection, then you will need to set encryption to auto.
- On the last selection “send all traffic,” you will need to change it to on.
- Close out your settings screen and go to iPad home.
- When you go back to settings and network, you will see your wireless connection and below that, you will see VPN. Whenever you need to turn VPN on, you will just need to change that slider to on.
Whenever you will be connecting to a public Wifi, then you will just need to also choose to turn VPN on. This will make sure your device is always secure.
