Hello, everyone VPNDudes here, and in this post, I wanted to show you how to set up a VPN or virtual private network on your Android phones in 2021?
Now a lot of people need to use a VPN for work and what that does is allows you to create a secure connection between your phone and the company’s internet or intranet, and it allows them to transfer secure data and not allow anyone else to see it.
You also may want to use this if you are on public Wi-Fi you want to use a secure VPN connection and there are a couple of other reasons you would want to use it as well. But I wanted to show you how to simply connect it to a VPN using Android Phone in the step by step guide.
Complete steps to setup VPN on android phones in 2021.
Step 1: You will need to actually figure out where the VPN option is located but in a lot of cases it is under setting >more near the Wi-Fi Bluetooth data usage. So you should hit more and then you will see there is a VPN option.
Step 2: In this step, you will need a VPN server. There are a lot of places you can actually pay for them monthly. There are apps you can use also that will set this up so this is a general setup.
So let’s go ahead and add a new one for that we have to hit the plus there and you can name it whatever you want.
Step 3: You have the type of server it is on you to choose various levels of security depending on which one you use but PPTP is pretty common so we will use that for this demonstration.
Step4: So go ahead and put in an actual server name there so you should do that now that you have the server name inputted. You will go hit save and it should save the VPN now.
Step 5: If we want to connect to the VPN, we have a couple of different options. We have an always-on VPN but right now you just need to tap on the VPN and it will ask us for your username and password so let’s go ahead and put that in once.
Now you have your username and password in place just go ahead and save the information and hit connect and it will connect and it’s connected now.
You can see there is a key in the upper right-hand corner and that lets you know that it is actually connected through a VPN now that you have the VPN connected.
