What is a VPN client? Put simply a VPN client is a piece of software installed on a device such as a PC or mobile phone which establishes a secure connection between that device and a VPN server.
We have a list of highly recommended, regularly updated and secure VPN clients but you can of course use your own if you prefer. You can download Openvpn config files from your client portal which most common VPN clients can import (known as a ovpn profile).
Let's get started, select the appropriate option below to download one of the VPNDome recommended client.
Once downloaded, run the installation according to your device.
Setup & Install of ovpn profile
The VPN clients have been created to be super simple to get started with. Once your VPN client is installed, download a locations ovpn profile from your client portal VPN service page, you will be able to see a download icon to fetch your profile. Once downloaded to your device, simple double click the profile icon which should open your installed VPN client confirming the details. You should be able to give the VPN profile a friendly name if you wish.
If you are using a mobile device, within the OpenVPN clients, you can select the plus icon (bottom left) to bring up the options to use either a URL or file - depending on the OS the file option will explain what actions to take.
