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

The Android platform has APIs to allow developers to develop virtual private network (VPN) solutions. These apps provide VPN protocols that the built-in client is not able to support. They will enable you to connect VPN services without complex configuration.

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

Download the OpenVPN Connect application from the Google Play Store. Then, you’ll require the OpenVPN configuration files from your VPN service provider. The config files come with a.ovpn extension and can be downloaded from the VPN provider’s website or by calling their live chat support team for assistance. After downloading the config files, copy them to your Android device (or PC). You can download them directly to your device or use an application such as ZArchiver.

Launch the OpenVPN application and then tap “+” to create an existing VPN profile. Select a server, then tap “Connect”. Once connected, the tunnel will secure all Internet traffic to the server. The app shows the status and other details of the connection on the Status tab. The app has an option to keep the VPN connection in use even when it’s not being used.
