    Great app. Using this with OMV5 and AdGuard. Now i can have an ad free browsing experience on the go as the vpn routes all traffic through my home server for adguard to filter. Super easy to configure on both OMV5 and the app, just import your certificate and you are done!

  2. Nathan Hoffman-avatar

    Nathan Hoffman


    3.0.5 apk Pretty solid VPN performance. I would really like to see some sort of auto-connect based on user-defined criteria (such as certain wifi networks, times, etc). Perhaps Tasker compatibility as well.

  3. Ian Cameron-avatar

    Ian Cameron


    Just occasionally the app will lock up and clicking disconnect in the notification won't kill the VPN connection, but other than that, this is a great app. Great work, thank you!

  4. Sergey Lysenko-avatar

    After last update when I use OpenVPN, sign in to WI-FI request appeared. So I need to press 'Use network as is'. It is related to 4G network also. Very annoying behaviour. Before last update all was fine.

    Works reliably, secure my public and mobile WiFi. Ver 3.1.0 to 3.2.2,( 16 Jun 2020),But has a big problem, ease of updating those Configuration Files on a mobile app like this. The current version is useless. It assumes we can Update them via a URL. But his is more relevant to persons running a Business. Not us mortal home users?! So until this issue is resolved, I have to drop it frm from 5 STARS to 1 STARS as 0 STARS, doesn't exist. Also connecting that OpenVPN email, is not much helpful.

  10. Sohan Ray-avatar

    App is nice, smooth and stable but lacks the feature of by passing any selected app through the vpn. Also it doesn't have a working kill switch like the native apps of VPN providers.

  11. Sergio S.-avatar

    I like the UI but it lacks a quick settings shortcut to connect rapidly to a selected VPN (there's an option to create a shortcut in the launcher, but it's not the same thing).

  12. Andrei Milas-avatar

    The fact that you cannot edit a client config and you need to reimport the profile seems utterly idiotic. Otherwise the app does what it's supposed to do: it connects to a VPN.

    I think the May 2020 update made it useless for me. It stopped working for me after the update, I think. My iOS device is still working with the same settings. I am seeing a "12:02:12.622 -- EVENT: PROFILE_NOT_FOUND info='*************'" log and the app just does nothing... Developer reached out to solve the issue!! I'm giving this app it's stars back.👍🏽 From 1 to 4.

  14. Myc Clark-avatar

    The only thing it's missing is a tile button to quickly select a VPN profile. There is another VPN client that can do this however that client does not work with my endpoint anymore.

    Make it easier to open profile file directly from app. When clicked in WhatsApp it says "you may not have a proper app for viewing this content". Clicked on an email attachment it says "Failed to import profile, line is too long" (make the path string long enough). Don't count on it that users know how to find where the file was saved. Fix both errors and you get five.

    Works as promised. The only issue i found is that the app causes two persistent notifications, one native and one from the system. It'd be nice to be able to turn off the app notification in the app.

    If you know how to create your own .ovpn file and configure it properly, then this works beautifully. Alas, you can't edit the files after being imported, which makes tweaking painful. Recommend that you test the configuration on another client and export the working set when done.

    First it was working fine then suddenly it started crashing on startup. Then after few days of attempts. I managed to run it but then again after few days It stopped working again. The app crashes on start up i cant even collect logs because there is no data directory created by openvpn connect.

    Ok, but the open souce one is much better - much more feature rich and works better - ie: if you have private keys in an .ovpn profile in p12 format this version requires you to manually add the certificates while the open source one just imports the whole file no problems!

    Thanks to OpenVpn for helping me. Only for this, I now have my own vpn server for totally free. It is greater than great. I don’t have any problem with it. It seems unbeatable and indeed very secured. If anyone knows how to use it, he would feel the awesomeness of it. I am thinking about using it for my own vpn service after using it free. I get 3 hard secure connections for lifetime. Another great thing is that it is my choice whether use it with logs or without logs. Again, thanks to openvpn.☺

    The app worked great for the past 2 years when I had an imported profile for my home network so I could access my devices away from home. An update occurred last month that broke the ability to set a username and password to authenticate with and as a result I could not connect to my home vpn any longer. I instead used another openvpn app to import my profile and connect with.

    Works great. I would give two UX feedbacks: 1. Does not remember the passwords for the VPN 2. When writing a password and revealing what it is, through the eye icon on the right, the pointer goes to the beginning instead of staying at the end of the password. Maybe both are on purpose, not sure, it would be great if those are available.

    This app works great!... except for the fact that it doesn't automatically connect. If you go to an area where the vpn for one reason or another doesnt work, the vpn will give up and not retry when you change networks. Due to the lack of this feature I have to rate it three stars because I have to manual connect daily. (another problem that i have experienced is that the vpn doesnt transfer networks easily, making you again have to manually reconnect the vpn.)

  85. Jim Valim-avatar

    Jim Valim


    I can not recommend this application anymore. Data collection and privacy policy has changed with the last update! No way to switch back to previous version. This is one of the problems with updating on Google play. Nothing was mentioned in the "what's new" dialogue that this policy was changing! Stuff like this is what makes people not want to update! I will just remove and use the app from my VPN!

  86. sketchyboi14-avatar



    I don't know why I have like 25 imported OpenVPN configuration files and none of them establish a connection. However when I use ProtonVPN, which uses the OpenVPN protocol, it connects with no problem every time. I don't know what's going on but this is SO irritating. I hope you aren't gonna just let it stay like this. Only reason why you get 2 stars is because when it actually does establish a connection, (Which isn't often) it's very stable and rarely drops connection and reconnects fine

  87. Marc Zo-avatar

    Works great... But not consistently I have a von server at home. I use a desktop app to connect my computer constantly. I would do the same with this app, and set my android VPN settings to always on, but the app regularly crashes when in the background and/or with the phone locked. Otherwise the app works great. Just not constantly, which defeats the purpose. Only missing feature: whitelisting of home WiFi (not even sure if that's possible though).

  89. A-avatar



    Instead of keep trying to connect automatically when waitng for the public wifi connection, 3.0.6 stops and asks me if I want to retry even though the setting is set to "continuously retry". This means sensitive data is exposed as soon as the public wifi is connected. Also, it does not display up/down speed anymore. 3.0.5 works perfectly, why ruined it?

  90. Gyromatical-avatar



    I don't understand the purpose of the icon remaining green as the VPN paused itself while looking for network. I actually have a connection (so that's kind of buggy) but the actual issue at hand is privacy. Do you realize the irony of the icon color? Those who use it for privacy are no longer private even though it appears to be.

    The client is not stable on the Android platform when connecting through a wifi. It runs for awhile, then all communications with the network hangs. The data monitoring screen shows data going out but nothing coming in. Closing the app restores the Wifi connection. Loss of connectivity may be linked to the phone entering sleep mode and the app not reawakening fully. Their version of the app on Apple, however, is stable.

    Just downgrade to 3.0.5 and everything will be normal again. Update: since i tried out 3.0.7, i have been receiving high packet loss and latency. Ultimate solution is going back to 3.0.5 which is very stable build, my games never experienced a single ping spike again unlike the newest version which caused a lot of lag while playing mobile games like pubg and mobile legends. Please revert version back to the stable 3.0.5 build and users won't need to worry about problems. Cheers from Philippines

    All was well until after an update, it gave me a pop-up about sharing data with law enforcement and such, even of this only applies to their VPN service, it's simply crazy for a VPN to snoop on you, I am hosting my own server and was using this as a client, but I could not use the application unless I agreed to sharing data. Uninstalled, replaced.

It stuck on "Client exception in transport_recv_excode: mbed TLS: SSL read error : SSL - Processing of the CertificateRequest handshake message failed" variation of setting have tried including compression enabled, AES-CBC chipper, TLS version default. Just missing use insecure algorithms but I can assure you our VPN server doesn't have enabled MD5 signatures. Please help.

    Configuration: Samsung Galaxy S9 with the latest software installed, attempting a connection to the most recent Untangle Firewall with the OpenVPN Server installed and configured. Symptom: OpenVPN Connect connects easily, and I was able to ping both directions over the OpenVPN tunnel. Reverse DNS worked properly but not DNS. Using both Samsung Internet and Chrome, I was never able to access any web servers by IP address on my target network from the S9 Client. IVMS-4200, a remote camera viewing app, also failed to connect to the specified IP address. Solution: After trying every conceivable setting on both the Untangle Server and OpenVPN Connect with no success, I installed OpenVPN for Android by Arne Schwabe, imported the exact same ovpn file that I had used for OpenVPN Connect, and the connection worked immediately and perfectly, allowing access to all of the target network servers and cameras. Clearly, there is some problem with the interaction between the OpenVPN Connect app and the Samsung Galaxy S9 as of 2020-03-05.

    This review concerns the Android TV Oreo version of it.. Howvwrr, the client has a number of flaws from the design and functional aspects as well as bugs. Even the background colour of white is wrong. The location of the configuration button leads to inadvertent selections.Bugs: with multiple profile, scrolling fails-mupliple scrolling is needed to advance within list. On Wake up from standing or use of Connect on boit result in TV reboot, perpetually for latter option. Otherwise, very useful.

    The current build did not work with my note 10. I had to roll back to a previous rev. This comment is now one month old. Still no word or fix. I will be waiting. It's now been patched one time but my connection behavior still says connected but it's unable to send out receive data. Is anyone available to help troubleshoot this behavior?

    great VPN client! if there was anything I'd improve on it to make it perfect (5/5) i would make it detect changes in network connection much faster so it can reconnect to a vpn gateway a lot faster. Currently i can switch from 1 wifi to another and all traffic stops for a few minutes until it reattempt a new connection.

    The new UI font used in the app is awful; bring back the previous font (Roboto), please. The color choices in app's theming and UI, negatively affects UX; the contrasts between colors for backgrounds and fonts have been chosen badly, especially in the light/default theme. Sometimes opening the app takes forever to load the profiles page, because of an unnecessary check at the app's startup, which requires an Internet connection. Also when selecting "Import File", the default tab should be "FILE", not "URL".

    Was good for years, recently crashes or disconnects. I explicitly route all phone traffic through it and have it pause connections when the screen is locked. In the last month I intermittently notice it is no longer running and I have no idea how long my connection has not been routed through my network. My backups are over that network well so those stop while it is off. A few times on restart it has forgotten my connection settings and I have to re-import an ovpn file.

    I'm using this app to connect to a raspberry pi running PiVPN - it took a little work to get everything set up, but nothing too difficult if you have some basic networking knowledge. Once my Pi was set up, importing certificates & connecting through this app is incredibly easy & working flawlessly on an Android 10 device. I'm angry with myself for not setting all this up sooner.

    I set up OpenVPN on my Raspberry Pi a few weeks ago. For a while, I just used it with my Windows 10 laptop. Just today, I tried installing OpenVPN on my Android device. Setup was a breeze, and it worked flawlessly on the first attempt. Only took me a few minutes to make it work! AMAZING!

    I would give this 5 stars, but ive ran into a problem. All my servers that worked just fine yesterday, have now all stopped working. Im just getting 'Error message: mbed TLS: SSL read error X509 - Certificate verification failed, e.g. CRL. CA or signature check failed' i have tried to switch to both 'full' and 'downlink only' in the compression settings, but it hasnt worked.

    there are serious bugs in the Android implementation 1.When switching from WiFi to 4G and the other way around the VPN does not have internet and I need to disconnect and reconnect manually (even with retry continuously on) 1B: Same but it seems that sometimes it happens even without changing the network 2.Takes a good minute to start after device boot

    Great app! Works really well, I have a stable connection to my home network. This version however seems to have a bug. Whenever my screen auto rotates to protrait mode, it disconnects my connection and I have to manually restart it. That gets annoying when using it to watch movies. Would love to see it fixed!

    I have this issue on Oneplus 6t that when I close all apps, it also closes openVPN and disconnects the VPN. I tried checking the always on VPN checkbox in Android settings, the only difference is that the VPN icon does not go away from the status bar, but the VPN still gets disconnected and when you click on the notification bar it opens a message box saying that it cannot connect automatically, go to VPN settings.

    Seems like a great app, but every site I reference to set it up all shows an entry for user name/pass for the login for *.ovpn option yet there's no place for entry on this app. When I import the *.ovpn file and add it allows me a custom name but no login/pass options like in tutorials. When I try to connect I get user authentication failed. Would love to use this!

    By-Gingo this app is good! Best Android app ever in terms of user experience. Works flawlessly as far as I can tell. 'User friendly' (anyone else remember that concept?). Connection shortcuts for home screen! Richly configurable with lots of info. Only wish the windows client was nearly as pleasing. Only feature I would like is the ability to use the app to either launch other apps or URL's so it can ensure the vpn first; but that's just greedy of me.

    OpenVPN used to be great but the latest update randomly crashes/closes when running in the background with the only indicator of this being that my phone's own VPN settings blocking all data when OpenVPN disconnects. Hopefully the dev team can get this figured out in the next version so I can go back to giving them high praises for a good VPN app instead of having to point out flaws.

    The vpn servers are fast not sure if its ddoes protected, ive been having problems like every few days it glitches out and no matter what I do I have too restart my device too use it again its like it has a heart attack, although I like how the servers are fast, it starts disconnecting and reconnecting every second then I force stop it and it cuts my wifi I cant do anything about it except restart my device.

    I needed a TAP VPN service to my house for gaming while away from home on a crappy laptop. My router is set to TAP only so this connects and steam thinks I am at home. Also I can watch my Comcast while away and no issues. Works better on my phone tethering to my laptop then the windows version on this app. Much more constant connection and faster.

    Edit: Increased to 5 stars as after upgrading to Android 10 it is back to working properly. Worked perfectly on the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus but just changed to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus and it no longer works. Immediately crashes upon launch. Very disappointed. 3 stars for it working perfectly on the S10 Plus, lost 2 due to not working on the Note 10.

    In new update I can't launch connection until active network is available. In previous version I launched connection and then connected to network. My suggestion is to add feature for auto connect as soon as active network is available with other requests blocking (other apps) until connection is established.

    OpenVPN app is totally useless now. Connecting to a VPN always gives "X509 - Certificate verification failed, e.g. CRL, CA or signature check failed" every single time. This app used to connect to a VPN before, but I'm switching over to some other VPN app, as the latest update clearly ruined it. And I also used the ovpn profile with the authentication algorithm in the SHA format. Latest update bears no fruit. This app is nothing but just trash.

    I'm trying to connect to my server using a unique port number that isn't the default port 9443. Despite setting the optional port to the number I want, the logs show that it's only attempting to connect to 9443. I set my router to forward 9443 to 9443, and that works. I'd just like the option to select a unique port number to actually be used. Thanks

    Broke my connection to my OpenVPN server at work on my phone, 3.0.5 worked and 3.0.7 didn't. Can't switch back. Now getting: "Error message: mbed TLS: SSL read error: x509 - Certificate verification failed, eg. CRL, CA or signature check failed." I did not update on my tablet, and still works... UPDATED server to latest version, OpenVPN connects but can't reach any server resources. UPDATE: I needed to select full compression, since it's now off by default. thanks!

    I know MD5 is insecure but you dropped it without notice and now I'm traveling and can't connect to my router. You should have the option to enable it or should have had a warning pop up weeks ago warning this was coming before dropping support. I won't be able to fix it until I get home now. YOU SUCK!

    Continuous loop when trying to install a certificate. Refuses to install. Emailed support, got automated reply telling me I have to register on their website. Went to their website, but there's no where to register as a user. Only business paid support. Talked to chat... He told me to email the support email address as listed on the website. Seems installing a certificate is an endless loop. Just the same as trying to talk to someone. How can I get support or install a certificate

    In latest update it is not possible to connect to a vpn server till there is no active network connection.

    This new version is pretty broken. I get disconnected as soon as I connect and it'll keep disconnecting and dropping my LTE. This new version is basically unusable. I've downgraded to 3.0.7 for the time being.

  138. Tommy-avatar



    This really needs the ability to pause the VPN when connecting to WiFi, just like it does when switching from WiFi to mobile data. Otherwise, I have to either disconnect or pause, then connect or resume my VPN for internet to work when switching from mobile data to WiFi.

    If you accidentally check "Import autologin profile" just once, the app will somehow assume EVERY profile you enter manually needs that option on, EVEN IF YOU UNCHECK IT. If you check that "Import autologin profile" option once, even if you uncheck it, the app THINKS it's still on and you'll forever get "Failed to import profile"
