How to set up L2TP VPN on iPad

In this tutorial we will show you how to set up L2TP VPN on iPad Touch but first let’s see what are our requirements and recommendations.

Requirements

In order to set up the L2TP VPN you will need:

  1. A CactusVPN account. If you don’t have one you can try our services for free.
  2. Your VPN username, password and VPN server address. You can find them in your account on our website, by going to Settings.

Recommendations

  • To skip the manual setup and for more features we recommend to use the CactusVPN App for iOS.
  • L2TP is not the best option for online security and privacy. We recommend using OpenVPN or IKEv2.
