Before we start an active ZoogVPN subscription is required and your device must be connected to the Internet.
We highly recommend our official Android app based on OpenVPN, instead of a manual setup. It takes a few seconds to install and it is more secure as we have some additional features in our apps including DNS leak protection, IP leak protection, and more!
If you still want to setup a VPN manually on your Android device, here you go:
Сhoose the preferred VPN protocol:
Step 1 – Download the OpenVPN Connect app
On your Android device click the link below to download the OpenVPN app and install it. Do not launch the app just yet.
Step 2 – Download Configuration Files and CA Certificate
On your Android device click here to download OpenVPN Configuration Files according to your VPN Plan. And Click here to download OpenVPN CA Certificate.
Unzip the archive file with OpenVPN Configuration files and save the folder on your Android device’s SD card for later use.
Do not do anything with OpenVPN CA Certificate.
Step 3 – Import Configuration File
To import the Configuration File first launch the OpenVPN app installed earlier. Once the OpenVPN app is running press the ‘File’ tab.

Step 4 – Creation of OpenVPN Profile
