A Virtual Private Network (VPN) makes your connection to the Internet completely anonymous. Aside from hiding your data such as credit card numbers and passwords from hackers, this also keeps your activities private while browsing or streaming on your iPhone or iPad. Encrypting your data this way makes it impossible for service providers and other organizations to log or track what what you do or view.
With an encrypted VPN app activated on your smartphone or tablet, a new IP address is assigned to the connection. This makes your true location unknown, your identity anonymous, and all your data and activity 100% invisible.
Block Your ISP, Government, & Other Hackers
Install a VPN on iPhone or iPad quickly and easily with the following MTM step-by-step tutorial.
Service providers can no longer be trusted with our sensitive data. Millions of people use VPNs on their iPhones and iPads to protect themselves. ISP (Internet Service Providers) now have the legal authority to profit off of your Internet network traffic logs by selling your information to third parties.
Internet Service providers have also been known to block installation access and throttle download speeds of free streaming apps. This includes many Kodi add-ons for streaming free movies, TV shows, and live sports broadcasts on iPhone or iPad.
A VPN is advised for those using this type of technology, as it will prevent the service provider, law enforcement, and other agencies from monitoring and logging what you are streaming online.
Anonymously Watch Free Movies on iPhone
When using free streaming apps such as those used to watch free movies on your iPhone, a securely encrypted VPN is highly recommended to hide your identity, location, and online activities. Many experienced free video streamers, including everyone here at My True Media, prefer IPVanish VPN.

Install VPN on iPhone or iPad Guide
Installing a VPN on the iPhone or iPad is simple. Follow the step-by-step guide below to learn how.
This installation tutorial is demonstrated on an iPhone 6S, but this same process will work with other models running Apple’s iOS operating system.
- Download the IPVanish VPN iOS app found in the Apple app store.
- Then, launch the IPVanish VPN app and login. Note that your username is the email address that you used to register your IPVanish VPN account. Click Here to Register.
- Select the Connect button located at the bottom of the screen after you have logged in, options on this screen allow you to connect from a different country, city, or server.
- After you select Connect it will prompt you to Add VPN Configurations, click Allow.
- After clicking Allow, your device will open up VPN Settings in General, sign in with your Apple ID & Username or use your Touch ID if enabled.
- After signing in, you will be navigated back to the IPVanish VPN app. Now all you need to do is click Connect and you are done.
To access the Settings panel click on the gear icon in the top right corner of the VPN app. Adjust various settings here for a better user experience.
Options within the IPVanish VPN settings panel include: Account, Log out, About, Rate IPVanish, View Onboarding Tutorial, Use Touch ID, On Demand, Protocol, Refresh Server List, Reinstall VPN Configuration Profile, and Social Media (Facebook & Twitter).
Ensure the VPN connects automatically by enabling the On Demand function. This guarantees a fully protected device at all times. You can also connect automatically for any specific WiFi SSID (service set identifier) and website domain names within this settings area.
To confirm that your VPN connection is working, simply open any browser on your iPhone or iPad and navigate to whatismyip.com. You should see a different location and IP address indicated when successfully connected through the IPVanish VPN server.
IPSec VS IKEv2 Protocols on iPhone & iPad VPN App
IKEv2 (Internet Key Exchange version 2) is far superior to IPSec (Internet Protocol Security) if you are after tighter security. As well as providing stronger encryption and faster download speeds, IKEv2 also reconnects to the VPN server quicker if your service is ever disconnected for any reason.
If your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV box, or any Apple iOS device has problems connecting to the VPN, try changing to another protocol. Feel free to read up on the different protocols available in our VPN Protocol Speeds article.
Using an encrypted VPN is the safest way to anonymously watch a free movie, TV show, and even live sports on your iOS device.
