So far so good The VPN experience is so awesome. This client does just as expected. Had to switch to a home vpn after Niantic banned the VPN I was paying for, and I couldn't be happier. Able to access my home network media using Plex, shared folders, as well as all the other benefits using someone else's restricted wifi... can use ports that would otherwise be blocked, and people cannot see network packets in the clear.
Used to work well, now frequently disconnects Completely unreliable. If you use this app be prepared to keep an eye on the icon in the status bar. If it disappears (and it does frequently now) you will not be protected by your VPN. I will be looking for an alternative since this app is no longer reliable.
Connects to VPN servers quickly and securely. Very easy to use. OPEN VPN Connect does however lack a kill-switch, which prevents Internet data leakage when the connection drops. That said I've yet to find a VPN app that does have a kill switch. Maybe it's not feasible on Android?
Actually 3.5 Stars I would give it more stars, but the app keeps disconnecting from my VPN. It states that it will stay connected during the time the phone is on standby but it keeps disconnecting. Fix this issue for more stars. I know its not the VPN, I have no issues on my tablet, PC, or laptop using the VPN client from the service I pay for. This one has some issues.
Needs a way to automatically list all my ovpn files via the gui and quick way to change protocol (tcp, udp) and port numbers. I have to use this app because the PIA app has problems connecting to the PIA servers through some wifi access points, while the openvpn app works. EDIT: Also, on Android 7.1.1 I have notifications turned off, yet there is a constant connected notification in the notification bar.
Works Fine does what it says to do but drain a lot of battery. FYI It doesn't work standalone you need to install an App that pool and import a list of working servers profile. Works fine but not all the servers connection are reliable but that is not quilt of this App. The only lack is a better notification when the connection Drops or is not working. Keep the good work.
