To begin using Freedom on your iOS device first download the Freedom app from App Store. Please note Freedom requires you to use iOS 9 or later.

Once you download the app, open it and sign in with your account email and password.

Install the Safari Content Blocker and DNS Proxy

Install Safari Content Blocker by going to Settings > Safari > Content Blockers and toggling Freedom to "On".

Tap on "Install DNS Proxy" to install the Freedom VPN. This blocks content on other browsers like Google Chrome and for apps.

Tap "OK".

Use Touch ID or Passcode to install the Freedom VPN.

When the VPN is installed, it will look like this. Please note that you do not need to toggle the VPN on or off -- the VPN we use is a local VPN and will connect on-demand to block!

Manage settings

Clicking on the settings icon will take you to our setting screen. Here you can enable locked mode, configure notifications, and reinstall the app blocker if necessary.

Locked Mode: Prevents sign-out while a block session is running.
