Using AirVPN with ChromeOS / ChromiumOS (ChromeBook, ChromeBit etc)

Chromium OS (or Chrome OS) is an operating system designed by Google that is based on the GNU/Linux kernel and uses Google Chrome web browser as its main user interface.
CloudReady is the free, easy way to convert your computer to Chrome.

1
Go to Client Area > Config Generator in our web site, choose ChromeOS and other options.

Download files: you need user certificate "user.p12" file and Openvpn connection ".onc" file. (If you download the ".zip" archive format that contains "user.p12" and ".onc" you must exctrat the archive to have the two files outside the archive as two single file on the system. See How to Unzip Files on ChromeOS.)

In some version of ChromeOS the certificates menu entry is accessible only In the browser.
Open a new tab in the Chrome browser and put chrome://settings/certificates in the address bar, then press enter.

On "Your Certificates" tab, click "IMPORT AND BIND", and select the "user.p12" file. If asked, leave password empty. You should now see your certificate and “(hardware-backed)” if done correctly.

Note: if "IMPORT AND BIND" is not avaiable it's because in your device is disable or not present the TPM chip, see here. Without Bind ("hardware-backed") the certificates the VPN connection cannot work.

Click to connect. If you forced to enter a password, type something, it doesn't matter what. Verify that in "user certificate" is selected your import certificate (hardware-backed).
