I just installed OpenVPN for Android on my phone today. After some phone buggy-ness and fiddling, I got it all working. Cool.

 

But I noticed that when connecting to AirVPN, I was never asked for my login+pw. Hmmm...

 

Ok, I now figure the .ovpn files I generated and imported have some keys/certificates embedded that authenticate me personally as the user who needs to login/connect to AirVPN.

 

If that's true, and if my phone is stolen, how can I invalidate those credentials of mine so the thief can't login to AirVPN as me?

 

Will a simple password change on the AirVPN website do the trick?

 

(Thanks, everyone.)

A better approach would be preventing unauthorized access to your sensitive data in the first place, by using disk encryption.

Android supports it in all recent versions. To revoke a lost certificate, you can submit a ticket.
