Always-On VPN with Android

Go to your phone settings and navigate to the VPN section. Depending on your device this may be listed under More.

Click on the + symbol to add a new VPN connection. Enter a name that lets you easily identify to which server you are connecting to.

Next open a browser and go to the IPsec page. You will need to copy three items: The IPsec PSK (blurred here), the IP-address of the VPN server you want to connect to and the IP address of a DNS server to use.

Go back to the VPN settings and enter the IPsec PSK in the IPsec Pre-shared Key field and the IP address of the server in Server address.

Click on Show advanced options to enter the IP address of the DNS server. Leave all other fields empty and click on Save.

To test if everything was set up correctly tap the VPN connection and enter your Perfect Privacy username and password. To make Always-On VPN work you will need to activate Save account information.

After clicking on Connect you should see Connected below the VPN server, indicating that the VPN connection is active. Tap the VPN connection again to disconnect.

Now click on the More Options menu in the top right and click on Always-On VPN. Choose the connection you just added and click OK.

Always-On VPN is now activated. Note that it doesn’t say connected below the server for Always-On VPN. The key symbol in the status bar shows that your connection is now encrypted. You can visit our Check IP website to verify this.
