  • Install OpenVPN for Android.

    Openvpn for Android is an open source client based on the open source OpenVPN project.
    It uses the VPNService API of Android 4.0+ and requires neither Jailbreak nor root on your telephone.

    Hosted on GitHub: https://github.com/schwabe/ics-openvpn
  • Launch your internet browser.
    NOTE: don't use the default Android browser because it has an unresolved bug.
    Chrome and Opera have been tested by us and work.
  • Connect to AirVPN website, login and create the configuration files from our Config Generator.
    Choose Linux as platform (only direct TCP and UDP connections are supported) and finally click the "Generate" button to download it.
  • Downloaded .ovpn files may be imported directly into the application but the behavior depends on many factors (employed browser, files manager, Android version, etc).
    For simplicity's sake, we assume in this guide that you saved .ovpn generated files under the Download directory in the Android filesystem.
  • Open OpenVPN for Android and tap the top right "Import" button:


  • Click on the import button of the prompt dialog:


  • Browse to *.ovpn files:


  • Select your configuration of choice:


  • Confim the import with the top right button:


  • Click on the imported profile to connect:


  • Confirm the Android's security prompt dialog:


  • Wait for the bootstrap sequence:


  • The VPN tunnel is now established:


  • When you need to disconnect from the VPN click on the "Disconnect" button from the app's notification:


  • Confirm the prompt dialog:

If you don't want or can't use Google Play or F-Droid to download this app, browse to http://plai.de/android/ and download it there.


Also, if you are looking for older or pre-release versions, this link can be valuable for you. :)

Always remember:
There's a guide to AirVPN,

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here,
running TOR exits is discouraged,

using spoilers for your logs is the proper way to heaven.
Same issues are rare! Search for solutions and if not successful open your own threads.

~ Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. ~
