How to Use the OpenVPN Connect App on Your Android Device to Connect to NordVPN Servers

Android offers APIs to developers that allow them to create virtual private networks (VPNs). These apps support VPN protocols that the built-in Android client cannot support and can help you connect to VPN services without requiring a complex configuration.

This article explains how to make use of the OpenVPN app on your Android device to connect to NordVPN servers. This article also explains how to manually configure the connection using the NordVPN application and an OpenVPN Profile. This is more difficult but it allows you to have greater control over the quality of your connection and mobile data.

To begin, download the OpenVPN Connect app from the Google Play Store. Then, you’ll require the OpenVPN configuration files from your VPN service provider. These configs have an a.ovpn extension and can be obtained via the VPN provider’s site or through their live chat support. After downloading the config files to your PC or Android device, you are able to transfer them. You can do this by downloading them directly onto the device or using an application such as ZArchiver.

After you’ve uploaded your OpenVPN configuration files, open the OpenVPN app and click “+” to create the new VPN profile. Select a server, and then click “Connect”. Once connected, all Internet traffic is routed through the secure tunnel to the chosen server. The app will also display the status of the connection and details in the Status tab. It also has an automatic VPN option which keeps the connection active even when the app isn’t active.
