Chossing OpenVPN client for AirVPN on Android

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just switched from another VPN provider to AirVPN. I got a little nervous when I relaized that the Linux client was Java based, but I'm over the "shock" watching the World Cup without any problems. I use VPN a lot on Android as well and see that there's no dedicated AirVPN client. I have found documentation for setting up the OpenVPN clients for Android to use AirVPN. I have tried the OpenVPN Connect client and it seems to work good. However, I was wondering if there's some consensus around here which OpenVPN client works best with AirVPN on Android, or if they all do the same thing with a some UI and feature differences?

GUI is close to nonexistent. At least the logic is there and it does what it's supposed to do: Connecting to a server.

 

Apart from that, OpenVPN for Android by Arne Schwabe is my go-to client, one I frequently recommend.


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

Is it possible to route all Hotspot clients of an Android device through AirVPN with Eddie or Schwalbes Openvpn ?

Since both use the VpnService API of Android, no. Of course, anything is possible if you're root...
