Press and hold the power button until “slide to power off” appears.
Do not let go of the power button. Instead, press and hold down on the Home button for about five seconds or until the screen goes blank. This will force your iPhone to restart without enabling the VPN again.
If you’re having trouble connecting to a specific server or location after disabling your VPN, it’s possible that your ISP is still routing your traffic through the VPN server. In this case, you may need to reboot your modem or router in order for the changes to take effect.
Once you’ve successfully turned off your VPN, be sure to keep an eye on any potential security risks. Without a VPN, your traffic will no longer be encrypted and could be vulnerable to snooping from nefarious third-parties. As always, use caution when sharing sensitive information online and only visit websites that you trust.
Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
Tap the switch next to VPN to turn it off.
1. From the Home screen, open Settings.
2. Tap General.
3. If necessary, swipe left to access the App Library.
4. Tap VPN & Device Management.
5. If necessary, tap VPN.
6. From the VPN Configurations section, tap the Status switch to turn the VPN off.
Another possibility is that you’re using an app that requires a VPN connection, such as an app for accessing corporate email or resources. In this case, you’ll need to disconnect from the VPN in order to use the app. Finally, it’s also possible that your iPhone is enrolled in an enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution that controls which apps can use VPNs. If this is the case, you’ll need to consult your EMM vendor for instructions on how to disable the VPN.
