We don't recommend this software, because it's closed source
  • Install OpenVPN Client for Android.

    This app offer an easy way to configure and use the well known OpenVPN.
    There is not needed to have the root access, because the VPN tun device is handled with the VpnService API introduced with Android 4.0 (ICS).
    Not affected by TLS heartbeat read overrun (CVE-2014-0160)

  • 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 then "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's directory in the Android filesystem.
  • Open OpenVPN Client and tap the bottom right "+" button:


  • Tap the "Import VPN Profile" button:


  • Locate your .ovpn files, click on the configuration file you want to import:


  • Long press on the profile to change the configuration (optional):


  • Once done click on the top right save button (optional):


  • Click on profile's switch button to connect:


  • A warning from the Android OS is displayed, click OK to continue:


  • Now you are connected to the selected profile, when you need to disconnect from the VPN click on the "Disconnect" button from the app's notification:
