Open the below link in Safari, not a 3rd party browser, to download the OpenVPN Connect configuration files. Most people will require 'Standard' configuration files:
From the list of configuration files (link above) tap the OpenVPN Configuration file you want to import, i.e where you want to appear to be.
We STRONGLY recommend you repeat these steps, to import ALL options for your chosen location, for example all UK, USA options. This will allow you to experiment, to see which works best from your physical location.
