This article describes how to manually enroll PGP Viewer for iOS clients with the PGP Universal Server.

There are three ways to enroll PGP Viewer for iOS with a PGP Universal Server:
  • Manual – This requires users manually entering required information on your iOS device with a direct connection to your organization's PGP Universal Server.
  • Manual (with proxy server) - This requires users manually entering required information on your iOS device connecting to your organization's PGP Universal Server via a proxy server.
  • Configuration file -  this file provided to you by your administrator that includes all of the configuration information.
If your administrator has provided you with a configuration file, see the following article:
