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 can provide VPN protocols that the built-in client does not support and allow you to connect to a VPN service without complex configuration.
This article explains how you can use the OpenVPN app on your Android device to connect to NordVPN servers. It also shows you how to set up the connection using the NordVPN app and an OpenVPN profile. This method requires a little more specialized knowledge but can give you greater control over your mobile data and your connection quality.
Download the OpenVPN Connect application from the Google Play Store. Then, you will need to obtain the OpenVPN configuration files from your VPN service provider. These configs include a.ovpn extension and can be obtained openvpnandroid.com/10-reasons-why-to-choose-norton-antivirus/ from the VPN provider’s website or their live chat support. After downloading the config files, copy them to your Android device (or PC). You can download them directly to your device, or use an app such as ZArchiver.
Start the OpenVPN application and then tap “+” to add a VPN profile. Select a server and then tap “Connect”. Once connected, the tunnel is secured to all Internet traffic to the server. The app shows the status and other details of the connection under the Status tab. The app offers the option to keep the VPN connection in use even when it’s not being used.
