    Hi Johnny,

    Thanks for reaching out to us. You do not have to worry about this message, once you are connected to PureVPN, you Internet will be secure. If you are looking for higher encryption then we would recommend you to use L2TP.

    At step 4 in the instructions, my screen options are different – there’s no “Remote ID” field and I don’t know what to enter into this field.
    Could you please assist ?

  9. Waynej says:

    I’m getting a prompt for a “Remote ID” during the setup stages of the VPN configuration on my iPad. This is a required field but there’s no indication what should go in this field. Any suggestions ?
