Setup from a Laptop

If you have a laptop use the laptop to login to the Settings page so that you can see the QR code of your VPN settings.

On the WireGuard phone app click on the blue + button to add a VPN tunnel and choose the Scan From QR Code option. Allow WireGuard to take pictures and view the QR code using the phone. As soon as WireGuard detects the QR code it will record the settings and prompt you for a tunnel name. In the WireGuard app switch on the VPN tunnel using the switch to the right of the new tunnel name.

Open your browser and browse to a page that will show you information about your IP address e.g. https://iplocation.io to check the VPN is working and you're emerging from the country of your choice.

Setup from your Phone

If you only have your phone, open your browser and login to the Settings page, click on the Download link and save the configuration file. On the WireGuard phone app click on the blue + button to add a VPN tunnel and choose the Import from File or Archive option. Click on the three bars top left and select Open From Downloads and choose the file called wg0.conf. WireGuard will record the settings and create a VPN tunnel called wg0. Switch on the VPN tunnel using the switch to the right of the new tunnel name.

Open your browser and browse to a page that will show you information about your IP address e.g. https://iplocation.io to check the VPN is working and you're emerging from the country of your choice.
