Step 5 – Connect to VPN
Tap ‘Connect’ on the top right corner to connect to your chosen VPN server.
NB: This setup is designed to work without a Trust Certificate and other certificates, but in case you’ll need one (authentication error) you can download them from VPN Downloads page under ‘IKEv2 Trust Certificates’. You will then need to import certificates by going to Settings–>Security and Privacy–>Certificates and tapping on ‘+’ to import it by selecting the certificate downloaded.
NB: Please restart your device to ensure the smooth operation of your newly configured IKEv2 VPN.
NB: Make sure the date on your BB device is on ‘auto’ and not manually set.
NB: More information on authorization errors that you may experience and the certificates on Blackberry can be found in let’s encrypt certificates article.
Check that the flag has now turned to the flag of your desired country on the top of the page when logged in to your account.
Enjoy! You have now taken control of your Internet freedom, privacy, and security.
