    I have no clue how to hook this up the right way need instructions more than a 5 minute video on YouTube ridiculous and I know how to hook up a VPN this is just completely different protocols for openvpn with single cells that don't even take multiple ports I don't get it you can only put one or two configurations on and I can't even get one stable to work need help or this is useless

  2. guest-avatar

    apk I would love to see the top bar be blacked out as well. I find the colored bars to look a little clunky myself. It looks better though than all white backgrounds especially for somebody who themes everything black. I'm not sure what it takes to be able to theme your stuff using swift installer or substratum but that's the way I would go if possible. Props to dev team for implementation of dark mode though. Cheers

    fire tv just a bug in latest version, excluded app can not set on android tv using mouse or keyboard.

    fritzbox UPD: I recommend to enable OpenVPN 3 driver in app settings. Works like a charm now. As for old OVPN2: 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

    Great app, much better than the official OpenVPN Android client, and it's also opensource. The official app enforces me to set a password/lock in the phone (as it uses Android keystore to save it). But this app works perfectly in a device with no lock screen, which is what I wanted. Much more feedback and stats than the official client, too. It's a more complete solution

  20. guest-avatar

    Best OpenVPN app. I switched from the "official" proprietary app because it occasionally lost its mind when it had trouble connecting and racked up a big bandwidth bill. This version (the semi official free software version) has worked flawlessly. Generally I prefer free (as in freedom) software anyway, so I really should have started here first. My VPN provider is Private Internet Access.

  21. guest-avatar

    Just awesome ! My official vpn`s app hogged battery. This doesnt use hardly any. I dont even have to set it to not be optimized for battery. And i like the compression feature which the official vpn app didnt have. Finally with the settings to exclude apps from the vpn and allow them to bypass the vpn, this is the only app that has allowed me to use sip calling that stays registered with a vpn on !

  22. guest-avatar

    Nice app for VPN, Best features i like the most is the kill-switch and the pause option if screen is off (phone is idle), This help to conserve phone battery in comparison to other vpn apps wherein even thought the phone is idle and screen is off, VPN continues and phone battery drains. This app helps conserve battery drain. I have noticed one issue though if app owner can clarify on these options > in Allowed Apps 'VPN is used for all apps but exclude selected' 'VPN is used for only for selected apps' when i try to enable both these options and then select one app from the list and then reconnect my OpenVPN, the app reports "no Internet Connection" and if i deselect the app from the above option it works fine. Shouldn't the selected app be able to bypass VPN and access the internet !!!! but it does not work as expected. Note: i have a kill switch enable to block internet access when a) idle screen is active b) vpn is disconnected I am trying to use Music App and it stops when the idle screen is active coz vpn gets paused and so i need somehow to bypass this app to not use VPN and have access to internet. Any help

  23. guest-avatar

    It's definitely the most full featured free OpenVPN app on Android today. But it hasn't been updated in a year and I'm starting to worry it's going the way of abandonware.

  24. guest-avatar

    Daniel Franklin


    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.

  25. guest-avatar

    Stefano the CAT


    I stopped upgrades some months ago since my VPN configuration files became incompatible with the new format. I need this App being compatible with old vpn configuration files too.

  26. guest-avatar

    Wouldbe nice if it had per application firewall settings, i can pick if i want a specific application to bypass the vpn, but it would be nice to block internet access entirely for specific apps.

  27. guest-avatar

    Very very good. Much preferred to the "official" OpenVPN programs. Import functionality especially good. I would like there to see an export function added, such that I could save all current servers along with their passwords to prevent having to enter them on future devices.

  28. guest-avatar

    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

  29. guest-avatar

    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....

  30. guest-avatar

    Great app. Better than the official OpenVPN app. This one actually works.

  31. guest-avatar

    Much better than the official one which is totally broken for adding certificates.

  32. guest-avatar

    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.

    Terrible battery consumption. OpenVPN app spent 20% of battery during the night. Device was inactive.

  34. guest-avatar

    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.

  35. guest-avatar

    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.

  36. guest-avatar

    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

  37. guest-avatar

    It works out of the box even with a static key! net.openvpn.openvpn did not work for me.

  38. guest-avatar

    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.)

  39. guest-avatar

    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.

  40. guest-avatar

    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.

  41. guest-avatar

    Perfect client! Much better than official openvpn client -- more tolerant to ovpn file parameters, gives detailed logs and very stable in general. Thanks a lot!

  42. guest-avatar

    Павел Жук


    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!!!

  43. guest-avatar

    Useless VPN, it's not working and I have subscribed yearly already, I hate this very much, this is useless and scam honestly

  44. guest-avatar

    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".

    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.

    This app give me 30 mins waiting for download but when it's done it shows connected but the internet won't run.. if i could only give -99 stars I'll do it, don't be fooled by the 5 stars feedback people. It's a scam

  50. guest-avatar

    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).

  51. guest-avatar

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

  52. guest-avatar

    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

  53. guest-avatar

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

  54. guest-avatar

    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!

  55. guest-avatar

    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.

  56. guest-avatar

    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 ??

  57. guest-avatar

    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!

  58. guest-avatar

    Mike Goldenberg


    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!

  63. guest-avatar

    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.

  64. guest-avatar

    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.

  66. guest-avatar

    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..

  67. guest-avatar

    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!

  68. guest-avatar

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

  69. guest-avatar

    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.

  70. guest-avatar

    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

  71. guest-avatar

    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?

  72. guest-avatar

    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.

  73. guest-avatar

    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.

  74. guest-avatar

    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..

  78. guest-avatar

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

  79. guest-avatar

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

  98. guest-avatar

    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.
