Import OpenVPN config files

1. When importing OVPN config files, please use Android system browser (other browsers might not work properly). Login to Members section, and then navigate to TOOLS > OpenVPN certificates.


2. If you wish you can create new certificates for Android mobile or you can use existing OpenVPN certificates/OVPN configs just fine.


3. Tap on the blue folder to expand certificates folder, and select any VPN server location of your choice.


Note : You can only generate and use the standard Openvpn profiles. You cannot use "Split Routing for China" profiles due to size limitation imposed by Openvpn Connect app. Split Routing profiles are meant to be used on computers only.

After tapping on the server you wish to use and it would start downloading the profile on your device. Tap on Accept and it will import OVPN config file into OpenVPN Connect app.


Connect to OpenVPN server

You will see the confirmation about the profile been successfully imported. You are now ready to connect. Now tap "Connect" then allow connection by tapping OK. You can see the connection progress -> "Connecting..."




Once it looks like in the screenshot below, you're successfully connected. You can see the connection stats and the "Disconnect" button now. To be sure you're properly connected, verify your IP and location at
