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

The Android platform provides APIs that allow developers to build virtual private network (VPN) solutions. These apps are able to offer VPN protocols that the built-in client doesn’t support and assist you in connecting to a VPN service without any complicated configuration.

This article explains how to make use of 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 technical knowledge, but will give you more control over your mobile data as well as the quality of your connection.

Download the OpenVPN Connect application from the Google Play Store. You will then need to obtain the OpenVPN configuration files from your VPN service provider. These config files include a.ovpn extension and can be downloaded from the VPN provider’s website or by contacting their live chat team for assistance. After downloading the config files on your computer or Android device, you can transfer them to your device. You can do this by downloading them directly to the device, or by using an application such as ZArchiver.

After you’ve imported your OpenVPN configuration files, launch the OpenVPN app and click “+” to add an additional VPN profile. Select a server, then click “Connect”. Once connected, the tunnel secures all Internet traffic to the server. The app shows the status and other details of the connection under the Status tab. The app also comes with an automatic VPN option that ensures the connection is always active even when the app isn’t running.
