  6. Launch the OpenVPN app on your device.
  7. You will see the name of the server you just added and below it a green plus sign button. Click on that button.
  8. A prompt will appear asking for your Username and Password.
    • You can choose to save the password by selecting the "Save" toggle switch.
    • After entering your credentials, click on the return button on the keyboard.
