Hello and thanks.
why is persistant recommended? what's the tech behind it?
I use no google apps theyre disabled but play services can't be.
by secure i mean is this a leak of phone data or infomation to google and a threat to privacy even when using OpenVPN for Android.
Welcome to AirVPN!
1 - No. Not to my knowledge.
2 - Persistent tun or seamless tunnel as it's also called, is good to have on. Take note there's a couple of different VPN apps, so it depends which one you use.
3 - It's fine for your security. But if you mean privacy, then it's important to not mix identities, if you don't want to ruin the privacy a VPN may add. So if you're using gmail without a VPN, and then refresh the page and start using the VPN, google can see which IP addresses you went between.
4 - it's possible to route certain things outside the tunnel. On a desktop you could also use a VM for this.

Hi and thanks
2.I use f-droid OpenVPN for android as recommended in setup on AirVPN.
3.In terms of privacy i don't use google.
if i browse in firefox logged into a website and OpenVPN disconnects without me noticing and i continue am i ok interms of privacy, is it just the ISP that can see? (new to this)
can you recommend a APK app that is nearly as good as Air for vpn?
Or provide a link to a secure setup for OpenVPN for Android using air including settings please.
i ticked iv4, iv6 and Persistent tun ticked.
Is android even with a VPN inherently not private ?
lots of qestions there.
4. sounds difficult, would need other people to be able to easily connect real or vpn app. Come back to this.
