Instructions on using on iPhone with VPN provider
I have this working with NordVPN. Nord allows you to enter a custom DNS server and here is what I have done. It’s not perfect but it does work.
1. Setup a profile for your phone in NectDNS and copy the custom URL to link your IP address.
2. Create two automations in the Shortcuts app that Apple provides.
- The first one is for when you connect to a WiFi network and has the following:
— When the phone connects to a WiFi network, call the custom URL to link your IP to the NextDNS configuration.
- The second automation is
— When I leave the location of my house, call the custom URL to link your IP to link your IP to the NextDNS configuration.
With both of these I am always protected and my IP always linked to the NextDNS configuration.
Thanks for this! I’m trying to get it to work, but it’s not working for me. I’ve attached a pic, and it’s probably totally wrong, but I’m new to Shortcuts. Would you mind posting a screenshot, please?
