Surfing the Internet, like everything, has its risks. Connecting through a virtual private network or VPN is a good practice that lets you keep your data private and, at the same time, access blocked websites. This app, developed by Arne Schwabe, is an open-source client based on the open-source project OpenVPN, which works through the Android VPN service API. In addition, it does not require a rooted device and requests very few permissions. Let us see how it works.
Surf the internet without restrictions
Before using OpenVPN we must take into account that this app is a client that we can use to connect to a VPN server with. That is, it is not a VPN itself, we will need to find one in order to take advantage of the tool.

In other words: it is an application for advanced users since it includes multiple configuration possibilities and options to import profiles. It may be a bit complicated to set up compared to standard VPN apps, but it is ideal for those who know how to get the most out of customizing and using a VPN network.
