About this app

Openvpn for Android is an open source client based on the open source OpenVPN project.
It uses the VPNService API of Android 4.0+ and requires neither Jailbreak nor root on your telephone.

FAQ

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: http://ics-openvpn.blinkt.de/FAQ.html#faq_androids_clients_title

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.

Security

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.

What is wrong with this App? It works well, then an updater, and the imported files don't work. Even new ones fail. So you have to go back to an earlier version. Then a few updates later you can upgrade and it works. Recurring pattern. I like it for its configurability but watch it with these updates please. It drives me crazy. Follow up 5 months later. I still cannot use any version of this App after January 2022. I use that version. All later versions exit and won't accept any profiles. Sad

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.
