The OpenVPN Access Services for iPad

Make your iPad the Ultimate Travelling Companion with the SimplyExpats.net service for iPad

The OpenVPN Access Service for iPad provides a fast and reliable connection to our UK Access Servers, to allow you to connect back to the UK, wherever you travel.

iPad VPN and Backup Proxy Services

The SimplyExpats.net Service for iPad allows you to connect either to our normal OpenVPN Service or to our Backup OpenVPN service. Our Backup service uses SSL instead of the normal OpenVPN connection, so will go through most firewalls. This allows you to connect to the service, even when staying in hotels, or using shared Wifi networks whilst you are away from home.

You can switch between the normal OpenVPN Service and our Backup OpenVPN Service whenever you like, allowing you the maximum flexibility possible.

Which service will provide a better connection for you, depends on your location and available network connectivity. Some hotels and public Wifi services, for example, do not allow VPN connections through their network. In such cases, you can simply connect using the Backup Service.

For normal Home use, we recommend using our normal OpenVPN Service for iPad. The OpenVPN Service in most cases provides a faster and more reliable connection.
