VPN Installation Guide: Apple iPhone or iPad (2 Steps)

Step 1: Install Secure Access

Step 2: Configure Secure Access to Connect to the Library VPN

Instructions apply to both iPad and iPhone; screens may vary slightly.

  1. Open the Secure Access client. When prompted for the corporate email address, enter and then select Connect.

  2. Under Connection Name, type a name of your choosing (we recommend “Library VPN”) and under Username, type your UC Davis Kerberos (CAS) username. Do not alter anything else. Select Connect.

  3. If your device asks whether or not you’d like to add VPN configurations, select Allow.

  4. Your new connection will appear on the Secure Access home screen. Swipe the connection and select the ((o)) icon to initiate the connection. Alternately, select the triple dot icon and then select Connect from the pop-up menu.

  5. When prompted, enter your UC Davis Kerberos (CAS) username and password, click Sign In. A secondary prompt will appear requesting your Duo code/command. See our FAQ for options, enter the option you prefer, then select Sign In to complete the connection.

  6. Once the connection is established, the icon on your Library VPN connection will turn green.

Congratulations, you are now connected to the library VPN and have access to the library’s resources!
