About this app

WHAT IS OPENVPN CONNECT?

The OpenVPN Connect app does NOT independently provide a VPN service. It is a client application that establishes and transports data over an encrypted secure tunnel via the internet, using the OpenVPN protocol, to a VPN server.

WHICH VPN SERVICES CAN BE USED WITH OPENVPN CONNECT?

OpenVPN Connect is the only VPN client created, developed, and maintained by OpenVPN Inc. Our customers use it with our business solutions, listed below, for secure remote access, enforcing zero trust network access (ZTNA), protecting access to SaaS apps, securing IoT communications, and in many other scenarios.

⇨ OpenVPN Cloud: This cloud-delivered service integrates virtual networking with essential secure access service edge (SASE) capabilities such as firewall-as-a-service (FWaaS), intrusion detection and prevention system (IDS/IPS), DNS-based content filtering, and zero-trust network access (ZTNA). Using OpenVPN Cloud, businesses can quickly deploy and manage a secure overlay network that connects all of their applications, private networks, workforce, and IoT/IIoT devices without owning and operating a multitude of complex, hard-to-scale security and data networking gear. OpenVPN Cloud can be accessed from more than 30 worldwide locations and uses patent-pending technologies to create a full-mesh network topology for improved performance and routing to private applications—hosted on multiple connected networks—simply by using the application name (for example, app.mycompany.com).

⇨ OpenVPN Access Server: This self-hosted VPN solution for remote access and site-to-site networking provides granular access control and supports SAML, RADIUS, LDAP, and PAM for user authentication. It can be deployed as a cluster to provide active/active redundancy and for operating at high scale.

OpenVPN Connect can also be used to connect to any server or service compatible with OpenVPN protocol or running the open source Community edition.

HOW TO USE OPENVPN CONNECT?

OpenVPN Connect receives configuration information for the VPN server using a “connection profile” file. It can be imported into the app using a file with a .ovpn file extension or a website URL. The file or website URL and user credentials are provided by the VPN service administrator.

Works exceptionally well. Very easy to import connection files. I've used this for several years now and had no major issues. My one and only gripe is the connect/disconnect switch is sometimes difficult to click. It responds to clicks (animation changes) but does not actually switch. Outside of that, excellent job.

This app works great!... except for the fact that it doesn't automatically connect. If you go to an area where the vpn for one reason or another doesnt work, the vpn will give up and not retry when you change networks. Due to the lack of this feature I have to rate it three stars because I have to manual connect daily. (another problem that i have experienced is that the vpn doesnt transfer networks easily, making you again have to manually reconnect the vpn.)

Great app, simple and to the point. Like others have said the switch button it's badly implemented and it's been that way for years. Sometimes you tap it and nothing happens for some reason. It's probably because they tried to be fancy with their styling of it. I would rather it worked as intended. Other than that great app!
