OpenVPN through SSLDroid tunnel (Stealth VPN)

Set up SSLDroid

Open SSLDroid and tap the kebab menu at the top right (three dots).

Select Add tunnel.

You have already downloaded the OpenVPN profile for a server location above.

Now search for the corresponding IP address on the OpenVPN with Stealth VPN (stunnel) page.

In the example we have chosen Chicago1.

Please now configure SSLDroid as follows:

  • Tunnel name: Name of the server location
  • Local port: 10000
  • Remote host: The IP address you just looked up
  • Remote port: 53

Confirm the configuration with Apply.

Touch the new configuration and wait until the SSL connection has been established. You can recognize this by the green SSLDroid icon in the system bar even when the app is closed.

Set up the OpenVPN connection

If the SSL connection is working, you can proceed with setting up OpenVPN.

Open OpenVPN for Android and tap the import icon in the upper right corner (package with arrow pointing down).

In the Downloads folder, open the .ovpn file you just downloaded.

If you can't find the downloads folder immediately, you can also access it via the Burger menu at the top left (three dashes).

Assign a descriptive name and confirm it with the checkmark in the upper right corner.

The OpenVPN profile has now been imported, but needs to be modified.

Touch the pencil next to the name of the profile.

Switch to the Routing tab.

In section IPv6 activate the checkbox Use default route.

Switch to the Allowed Apps tab.

Scroll down to SSLDroid and check the box.

The profile is now set up.

Use the Back key to return to the main menu.

Establish the OpenVPN connection

Tap the VPN profile you have just set up to establish a connection.

The first time you establish a VPN connection with OpenVPN for Android, you must first confirm by clicking OK.

Then enter your credentials for Perfect Privacy and tick Save Password.

Confirm the password dialog with OK.

After a short moment the OpenVPN connection is established. At the bottom of the protocol view it says Initialization Sequence Completed.

The OpenVPN for Android icon at the top of the system bar indicates that the VPN connection has been established - even when the app is closed.

You can now verify that the VPN connection is working correctly by going to our Check-IP page.

Always-on VPN

Finally, you can enable the Android option Always-on VPN.

Open the Android settings.

Go to Network & InternetVPN.

Tap on the gear next to OpenVPN for Android.

Now turn on the option Always-on VPN.

Please note: The option Block connections without VPN must remain disabled, because the SSL connection by SSLDroid must not be blocked.

Compatibility: Unfortunately, these options are not available on Huawei and Honor devices (EMUI interface) (as of Android 9.0).
