Android OpenVPN Setup

Android devices:

 

  1. Download the OpenVPN Connect client from the Play Store.
  2. Download the OpenVPN server configuration files here: https://privado.io/apps/ovpn_configs.zip
    • If your Android device can unzip files, you can download and extract the ovpn_configs.zip file directly on your device.
    • Alternatively, you can use a computer to download the ovpn_configs.zip file and unzip the servers configuration files. 
      • You can then email the server's .ovpn files to your Android device, or plug the Android device into your computer to move the files over.
  3. Launch the OpenVPN Connect app and if you are already on the 'Import Profile' screen, choose the 'FILE' tab to start adding a profile.
    • If you already have profiles loaded in your app, you will need to either click '+' button in the lower right or the menu icon in the top left and choose 'Import Profile'.
  4. Locate where you downloaded the .ovpn file from step 2, select it, and then hit the 'IMPORT' button.
  5. Enter your Username and Password.
    • Check the 'Save password' box if you don't want to enter the password each time you connect.
  6. Click the 'Connect' button at the bottom and hit 'continue' on the Select Certificate popup.
    • To disconnect, you can tap the green bar in the profile to set it back to a disconnected state. If you are looking at the status of the connection, simply click the 'DISCONNECT' button.
    • You will not need to select a certificate. Press continue if the prompt asks you to select one.
    • If you wish to add another server, you can repeat instructions starting at #3 to import another .ovpn file.
    • If you run into any issues, please contact our support team through our support center.

 

Note: The OpenVPN files correspond with airport codes to shorten file names. More info can be found here.
