Can I get free Internet
No, this app is for connecting to an OpenVPN server.

How to connect
OpenVPN is a client software to connect to an OpenVPN server. It is not an APP selling or provding any VPN services.
It allows to your own/company/university/provider OpenVPN server or to the VPN service of many of the commercial 
VPN providers.

What is the difference between all the OpenVPN apps?
For more information about the different OpenVPN clients in the Playstore see this:

Access to your photos/media (Android older than 6.0)
This app implements a feature to import OpenVPN profiles from the SDCard/internal memory. Google categorizes this access "accessing your media and photos"

TAP Mode
Only tun mode support (Sorry no tap, with Android 4.0 only tun can be supported).

Joining Beta
The beta is open, you can the beta by using the join beta beta. Please note that often a beta is not available since I mostly use the beta function to pretest release candidates.

Translate the app
If you want to help to translate OpenVPN into your native language look at the homepage of this project.

Bug reports
Please report bug/suggestions via email or at the code Google Code project. But please read the FAQ before writing me.

Reviews From google play store

This used to work; however, now I cannot select a certificate (the screen flickers and then returns to the app when you choose "select"). There is also no option to choose anything other than LZO compression (which is now deprecated). If there was some way to make this app work I'd be happy to give it a higher rating, but sadly these two issues are showstoppers.

I originally said that this wasn't working after upgrading to Android 10 - that was not correct. Seems to be some sort of Verizon problem - OpenVPN works fine when I connect over WiFi. So taking my issue up with them....

Nice app, works well. Could I request the widget to just activate and deactivate the vpn profile upon click without confirmation dialogue? Also, how to fix this setting from the log? -- WARNING: this configuration may cache passwords in memory -- use the auth-nocache option to prevent this

I was working good but today I dont know what happen when I connect its connect completed but when I try to use any other app its disconnected like open remote desktop or putty

Your app sucks it'll work one day then the next day I'll have nothing but authenticating problems you're at pretty much drove me nuts cost me to factory reset my phone completely and still authenticating problems thanks....... update it is working now

Error code 910 after downloading 100%. Apps cant be installed on my Pocophone F1 by Xiaomi. But why this app available in my country and support on my phone specification ??

Some apps won't let me get on there it says there's no internet connection when I had this activated well at work with his VPN it's CTV News. Maybe you can fix it thank you. Have a good one

Excellent app. Thank you Arne. Thanks also to Steve of GRC for the recommendation. Thanks again Arne, Keep up the Great Work!

watch this one folks. NEVER even set it up, connection issues 1 after another, even my router. my cable provider had to dlash my router. worked for a day. Went to uninstall because I had a hunch, lits of MB used, AND icon when pressed for a few second for sub/fast options asked Disconnect..disconnect? never even set it up, gave it permission etc. Now I will debug and see what is what...btw, my connections are fine now after uninstalling..spyware..100% NOT MADE BY OPENVPN...Do NOT INSTALL

latest beta cant import config files with embedded key and certificate files all in one *.ovpn file, was fine before

It used to work great! openVPN still works on my iPad and iPhone Xr, but not my s7 edge. Now it's requiring me to select a non existent certificate. Many others reporting the same problem. Fix and I will change my rating. Attempting to connect to Mullvad (paid vpn).

Great app. One bug though: it changes the shortcut label to "Connecting to VPN..." and it stays that way. I checked if there is an option to disable this behavior, but there isn't.

Was looking for an app that could import from an OVPN profile and had a quick settings tile. This fit the bill perfectly, thank you!

Won't start on boot despite set to do so checked the FAQ the option says to look at for Android pre 5.0 (mine is 4.4.4) there's no mention of anything there (really useful guys!!). Works otherwise, but flawed if you forget to start it or your phone crashes and reboots by itself!

Excellent. Works very well no issues at all. Cool widget.

Works as intended to! Everyone, who searches for VPN: this app is not a service! THIS WON'T CONNECT YOU TO REMOTE SERVER BY ITSELF! sorry for caps. Thanks for the app! Great job!

great for ovpn connection using windscribe, bit difficult to get everything working or maybe it's just me not being very tec savvy, however now it's up and running it appears to be working good.

so much better than the official app. being able to adjust client configuration is a crucial feature for openvpn and this app allows you to do so. a real lifesaver, thank you!

Excellent app, great while travelling paired with a well maintained OpenVPN server at home. The interface makes sense. Most options are present, along with a Custom Options section to introduce options that aren't available in the UI. No bloat, and plenty of function. Thanks for a job well done. Eventually I'd like to see an option to configure under "Connect on boot" or similar that automatically connects to the VPN when a given list of networks or access points are *not* connected to, so while OpenVPN for Android might be connected all the time, it will avoid causing double-nat-VPN issues when already connected to a secure network.

OpenVPN for Android (OVfA) is the VPN software we use on our Android devices to connect to both our home VPN and the commercial one we subscribe to (AirVPN). Prior to Android 8 (Oreo), we used to have no problem with the app. But, from Oreo on, more and more problems have sprung up that I'm laying at the feet of the app. Starting with Oreo, when OVfA is running, things like Photos refuse to back up and the Play store won't update apps (turning OVfA off lets things work). I'm trying to use the app on my new Pixel 3 XL (which uses Android 9 (Pie)), and having even more trouble. Along with the earlier issue of things not being able to connect when the app is running, OVfA now also has a tendency to just stop. I don't know if Google's just trying to throw speedbumps in our way to stop us from using VPNs, but whatever it is, using OVfA is now irritating as well as iffy (at best). I've tried AirVPN's "Eddie" app, but it's got its own set of problems. Next, I might have to try OpenVPN Connect. I just wish OVfA, the app I know best, would work with the later Android releases so I wouldn't have to go through this.

This OpenVPN client is very light on system resource consumption, so I would recommend this over all other VPN apps. I've tried several other VPN apps, including the *other* OpenVPN Connect and a few provided by VPN service providers, and I was frustrated by how they terminate itself while I was using a web browser or watching YouTube. Not with this OpenVPN client! I can even multitask and won't lose VPN connection. This is truly a heaven-sent. For those who are looking for free VPN apps here on Google Play, you can use OpenVPN app. Simply download .ovpn files from ProtonVPN (has excellent free service plan), SigaVPN, or VPNBook, import the .ovpn files into this app, and you'll be set to go in a minute.

Finally a usable VPN client for Android that has a quick settings toggle. Btw connecting by using the toggle doesn't work and sometimes the app is stuck in connecting.

I like the app, but it gives me a 'compression' warning, stating that data can be decrypted, even though LZO Compression isn't ticked. What can I do to disable compression?

App is freezing and crashing since the last update!? Galaxy S9+ Non Rooted... 😕

The last version beta is broken, it won't work anymore no matter the server selected, great app guys, I understand is a beta, keep it up with the good work and please, add support for obfuscation. This is the error: OpenVPN config file parse error: option_error: option 'mssfix' must have at least 2 arguments

This is The OpenVPN android app, not a closed source copy. This app isn't for beginners who don't understand OpenVPN (ovpn certs, encryption/authentication, compression, etc; read the OpenVPN docs for help.) This app is on F-Droid and anyone rating it less than 5 stars is either ignorant or arrogant (source is on Github, feel free to add PRs.)

It is not that much of good... need of improvement ... but keep it up🤟

This apps works beautifully as intended. Cleanly written with no fluff. Thank you to the developer for such a straightforward job.

Good app and easy to use. Never had I had once a problem with this app, it provides me security knowing trackers may not be able to track my location. Some may disagree with this but I think this helps me have faster downloads! If people keeps saying that this app does not make your location invisible then for me, I think that is the problem of the VPN you're trying to connect to! I would rate this app 💯/10 for having a good job trying to protect my location and giving me privacy.

Sensationally Powerful but simple! I use it with vpn settings picked up at: "freevpn dot gg" for gaming with country locked games. Great Thanks to the Developer for an amazing App! ❤

Very good app, Takes full power of openvpn to Android than the official client App

Amazing, does what one would expect it to and more. I very much appreciate logs and graphs. I do, however, hat an issue with a blinking notification icon when connection is active, which is rather annoying. The only reason I rate it less than 5.

Great for what it's meant to do, supports everything a regular openvpn client on Linux also does. 5/5

I read a lot of insane reviews, saw bad ratings and decided to test it myself! OVfA is great! Works just as official client when using config stored in file, but shows you better log "window" and traffic charts:) I'm using Android Pie and no problems so far. Thank you for such a great piece of code!!!

Would be nice to be able to 1. "share" (or similar) a folder full of profiles/config files with this app which would then be 2. automatically imported by this app and automatically named after the filenames of the respective profile. Right now it's not possible to do 1. as far as I can see and 2. works only if I import each profile via the Import button individually. If I just click on the profile, it gets named "Imported profile 1" instead of the filename which is "" or just "NL4".

Not full featured. Doesn't support tap. Otherwise it would probably be nice but doesn't work as is.

the app is quite good. but bypassing apps from vpn sérver option doesnt work. either app uses the vpn or doesn't have internet connection at all.

Wonderful OpenVPN app that does what it's supposed to do and does it well. I was surprised at how quickly I was able to configure and attach it to my personal VPN. It has increased the versatility of my phone significantly.

before it was a best , but now its connect but disconnect immediately and nobody can help for that

Open vpn dis not downlosd on my phone ..its just lodinging to 99% since two days ago..what is going on ?

it is no more a good vpn. to connect the server throughthis app we have to download ots helper proxy. i really hate it instead of this you should try exprss vpn

DNS override settings do not work. Unable to redirect DNS in this app. 🧐

it work but not smooth and sometimes can't connect. so sad

The interface is great but pages don't load while connected to a vpn. EDIT: I forgot to turn on compression. Everything works flawlessly now! Great job!

Works great, open source, not much more you could ask

Something changed in v0.7.8 that made it so connections don't time out like they used to. I used to have to reconnect to get an active connection, but now it's persistent. Thank you :D

RE: Ali Tajelsir Disable override MSS value of TCP payload will it working. @Arne Schwabe ProtonVPN file have mssfix 1450. It seems import of protonvpn .opvn file will enable override check box and error with "mssfix must have at least 2 arguments".

This is by far the best openvpn client I've used. Full featured, open source, and stable. I've used the client provided by openvpn. This one's better

The app was working great before. But since last 2 week it's not connecting to my server even if I am using same ovpn profile before.. Please fix the issue asap as this is the only dependable application.

Brilliant little app. The amount of knowledge required to create this is impressive, to say the least. Warning for all potatoes though: nothing for you here, save yourself the confusion and install candy crush whatever..

Imported my client configuration file even though it had some non-standard options. Very robust easy to see what is going on. Overall a great experience.

No longer works for me. It would not connect to my VPN server. Tried to import the exact same profile file from the exact same location but displays and error about a bad backslash usage. The app changed but my profile didn't.

works very well at first, but when i connect again it failed why? this is my 1st time to comment.. hope it will work again because i love it not like the other vpn..

I cannot import ovps it just crashes or lags.

It a good vpn especially with the app filter. The issue is that the vpn doesn't pause when the screen goes blank so it's a huge drain on battery

Doesn't reinit connection properly after Wi-Fi network change, is stuck at "Getting client configuration" OpenVPN Connect works better, but has its own quirks

sometimes cant connect to servers, please fix this

Worked nice till my android pie update. Now the vpn doesn't connect through a proxy with authentication. Will give 5 stars when fixed.

I bypass annnoying restrictions and vpn blockers using this thanks!

Bypass vpn for local networks worked for a few times, but after update to 0.7.8 it doesn't work at all. Please help

Superb! Ditch the official app and go for this. One click widget and pull down menu buttons are extremely useful. Works flawlessly.

Great app, but the notification icon on the status bar disappears right after I connect to my VPN.

Excellent! I've been a long time user of this app and I've seen so many changes over the past 10 years. It has always been just perfect!

Open source VPN software that works and is advertising free. Very nice!

This is good vpn but too slow thanks

OpenVPN 3 core stopped working in the latest February update, with config file parse error. Using ProtonVPN config file.

This app helped me to connect with my openvpn server but I am facing problem that I can't use the vpn on the desired app only but all app uses vpn instead.

Stable and reliable client. I am using it for many years. Thank you devs for such good product

your app is super and it's work perfectly on my note 9 connected top my Synology openVPN. the original open VPN do not work thank you again!

Great, was looking an openvpn client with options for DNS. Just needs dark mode to be perfect!

It's better than protonvpn cause you don't have to pay for it

people are giving 1 star because they dont know how to use it :) you need have a vpn server to use this client. very good open source app, have used it on Android TV as well.

Does not work on Nvidia Sheild. Cannot navigate all menus using remote control. Please fix.

Dear team, after last update ur application disconnecting every 20-40 minutes and then need to connect manually...

Excellent functionality. Superior to the other OpenVPN apps I tried

Horrible application. It instantly crashed multiple times after I wrote All rights reserved, Copyright. Sounds like open source BS.

is good, but I select 'start on boot' and it doesnt... which leaves me transparent if I dont look

very low power cinsimption as well as working flawless. My preferred openVPN client.

i can't connect to the sever i almost waiting to connect over and over again..such a waste of time fix this...

Your app got a a shot out on security now. very Cool been using it for a year and works fantastic.

Used it before worked awesome, but couldn't connect to it now fix it please. Device Samsung S8

when phone set display off, or push power button for display off and lock phone, this app closed and destroy process from running.

not available free and it will take too much time for login process

Cool, it works where old openvpn fails

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.
