How to set up FastVPN on iOS

To add VPN to your iPhone or iPad, select your desired plan from the FastVPN page:

Once you click Get started, you will be prompted to sign into your Namecheap account:

or to create a new account:

Once you are logged in, enter payment details and confirm your purchase of the FastVPN application:

Now you will need to install the FastVPN app on your iPhone, iPad, or another iOS device from the Apple App Store.

Once the iOS app is successfully installed, the FastVPN icon will appear in the menu bar. Click this icon and sign into your existing Namecheap account:

To add a new VPN configuration, click Allow:

Once access is granted, you may either choose to connect to one of the available locations, or allow the service to select the best VPN location (i.e. the location with the most preferable download speed, latency, and distance for a user).

The greater is the distance between you and the chosen location, the greater is the latency. The delay also depends on networking efficiency and quality of the routing devices.

From the Connect VPN screen, you can:

1. Connect to the best available location directly using the Connect button:

2. Choose a desirable location from the list of all available locations or your pre-registered favorite list and click on the location to connect:

Once connected, the status will be updated:

You can also add locations to Favorites by clicking the "star" icon as shown below:

To open the Preferences, click on the Gear icon:

    To use WireGuard®, simply update your FastVPN app to the latest version, choose the WireGuard® protocol from the app settings and select a server location. Once you connect to the server, FastVPN will automatically establish a secure VPN connection using WireGuard®.
