OpenVPN Connect Vs OpenVPN For Android

OpenVPN Connect is the “official” application developed by OpenVPN Inc. and is designed to be more user-friendly for VPN users with no technical expertise. It is, therefore, less feature-rich than the openvpn android app which is designed for more advanced OpenVPN users.

Openvpn for Android Openvpn for Android, a free and open-source application developed by Arne Schwarzbe, enables users to connect to any VPN service that uses the OpenVPN protocol. If your device doesn’t support the pre-configured VPN applications that are available in the Google Play Store, this is an excellent alternative. The setup process is quite simple. It is as simple as importing your VPN profile files (the configuration files have an extension of.ovpn) which you can find on your provider’s website or by contacting their live chat support team.

After you’ve imported your profile, tap on the server to connect. Once connected you’ll notice that your Internet traffic is routed through a secure tunnel to the server specified in the app. The Status tab allows you to see your connection’s details as well as status. The kill switch is enabled by default. It will block your internet connection if the VPN tunnel is lost.

The app provides a per application VPN as also an option that is always on that automatically establishes an automatic VPN connection every time the application is opened and continues running after your device has shut down or switched networks. The latter however requires Android 7.0 or higher, and may drain your batteries more than usual.
