OpenVPN Connect Vs OpenVPN For Android

OpenVPN Connect is the “official” application from OpenVPN Inc. and is designed to be more user-friendly VPN users with limited technical expertise. This means that it is less loaded than openvpn for Android which is geared towards more advanced OpenVPN users.

Openvpn for Android is a free and open-source client created by Arne Schwabe which allows you to connect to any VPN service that supports the OpenVPN protocol. It’s an excellent choice in the event that your device isn’t compatible with pre-configured “off the shelf” VPN apps that are available on the Google Play Store. The setup is fairly simple. It is as simple as importing your VPN profile files (the configuration files have an extension of.ovpn) which you can find on your provider’s website or by reaching their live chat support team.

If you’ve imported a profile, simply tap on a server in the list to connect to that one. Once connected then your Internet traffic will be directed via a secure channel to the server specified in the app. You can see your connection’s status and information in the Status tab. A kill switch is always turned on by default. It will also disable your Internet connections when the VPN tunnel drops.

The application offers a per-app VPN as and an option to be always on that automatically creates an automatic VPN connection every time the application is launched and continues running after your device has shut down or switched networks. However, this requires Android 7.0 or higher and can make your battery run more than usual.
