OpenVPN is one of the most trusted VPN protocols on the market with the fastest speeds and best security options. However, in the past, the TorGuard iOS app has been limited to older protocols like L2TP/IPsec and IKEv2 since OpenVPN as a protocol option is prevented due to licensing restrictions. L2TP/Ipsec and IKEv2 is still a secure option to use, but now we’ve implemented an easy new way to access OpenVPN on iOS through the TorGuard app!
The reason full OpenVPN integration is restricted on the app store is due to the technology company, OpenVPN, owning the license for the open source software and protocol. Only the OpenVPN Connect iOS app can use the license for the software on the app store.
But now, TorGuard has developed an easy way for using the OpenVPN protocol without infringing on the rights of the OpenVPN software or violating the rules on the Apple App Store.
So what are you waiting for? Go give the new OpenVPN update on the TorGuard iOS app a spin. Just navigate to the settings, and select OpenVPN to install the Standard iOS OpenVPN Connect app. Then, choose the iOS OpenVPN UDP or TCP config link from the settings menu and download the servers you wish to connect to. Open these ovpn files in the OpenVPN Connect app, enter your TorGuard VPN user/pass and tap connect!
With this new update the TorGuard iOS app makes for quick and simple configuration of OpenVPN Connect on any iOS device.
