How to use windows 10 VPN service

Windows 10 is the latest version of operating systems. It is developed by Microsoft team as a part of its Windows NT family of operating systems. There is no need for additional software to support any VPN protocols. Virtual Private Network (VPN) is programming that builds a secure and encrypted connection over a public network. PPTP and L2TP/IPSec are the most common types of VPN protocols. In this post, you will learn how to use the window 10 VPN service on your Laptop/ Computer device. If you are not feeling secure with your public network or you have not set up a VPN service yet then follow the coming procedure.

Step by step procedure to set up a windows 10 VPN service

Step 1: First of all, tick on the “Start” button and select “Setting”.  

Step 2: Here you will have the “Network & Internet” option, click on that button to proceed further.

Step 3: As you click on network and internet button, then a column will appear on the left side of the screen with three options. Now, you have to hit on the “VPN” button.

Step 4: Now its time to click on “Add a VPN Connection” on the right side of the screen.

Step 5: Next, configure your VPN settings by selecting “Window (built-in)” in the column of “VPN Provider” and either press “Tab ” key or move cursor scroll down. In this column, fill out the “Connection name” and “Server name or address”. These name may vary based on your VPN provider—whether a third-party service or an employer.

Step 6: Now, Hit on the “VPN Type” and choose your type of VPN connection. For the sake of this tutorial we’re continuing with the use of Point to Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), but the steps for Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol with IPSec (L2TP/IPSec) are very similar, and you should have no difficulty following along.

Step 7: In the line of “Type of sign-in info”, you must choose “User name and password”. Both the User name and Password fields are actually optional. That means every time you connect to your VPN service, you’ll be prompted to enter your username and password instead of having that information saved.

Step 8: When you’ve filled all of the credentials (or left blank in the case of the optional fields), click the Save button.

Step 9: As you finish your settings, you’ll see your newly created VPN connection listed in the VPN section. Click on it.

Step 10: Now, it’s time to test the new connection! Click the “Connect” button

Step 11: If you have not chosen the option to remember your user and/or pass then you’ll be asked to enter them. After a few seconds, it will automatically start to connect and the status will change to Connected.

Step 12: If you want to monitor your VPN connection status, click on the “Networking” icon in your Windows System Tray.

Step 13: Now you will see your VPN connection status is shown as “Connected” at the top of the menu. If you want to disconnect it then you can also disconnect to your VPN from here, just click on the entry and you’ll be taken right back to the VPN section. Hit on the “Disconnect” button when you don’t want to use your VPN.
