Math VPN uses OpenVPN technology. Search for and install OpenVPN client app for your device (available for Android, Chrome OS, iOS, Linux, macOS, Windows). Download MathVPN.ovpn configuration file. Use your OpenVPN app to add a new VPN configuration by importing the downloaded MathVPN.ovpn. The file has embedded certificates, so there is no need to provide them separately in VPN configuration.

If the app doesn't offer a way to import configuration files, here are MathVPN parameters for manual configuration:

CA certificate: DigiCertCA — may already be present on your device (in /etc/ssl/certs/ on Linux) or download.
