Android offers APIs for developers that allow them to create virtual private networks (VPNs). These apps can offer VPN protocols that the built-in client can’t support and assist you in connecting to a VPN service without complex configuration.

This article will explain how to make use of OpenVPN on your Android device to connect to NordVPN servers. This article also explains how to manually configure the connection using the NordVPN application and an OpenVPN Profile. This is more difficult but gives you greater control over the quality of your connection as well as mobile data.

To get started, download the OpenVPN Connect app from the Google Play Store. You will then require the OpenVPN configuration files from your VPN service provider. These configs are tagged with a.ovpn file extension and can be downloaded via the VPN provider’s website or through their live chat support. After downloading the config files to your computer or Android device, you are able to transfer them to your device. You can download directly to your device or download an app like ZArchiver.

Launch the OpenVPN application and tap «+», to add an VPN profile. Select a server, and then click «Connect». Once connected, the tunnel encrypts all Internet traffic to the server. The app will also display the status of the connection and other details on the Status tab. The app also has the option to keep the VPN connection in use even when it’s not being used.
