Official App for Access Server, CloudConnexa™, and OpenVPN compatible services.


The OpenVPN Connect app does NOT independently provide a VPN service. It is a client application that establishes and transports data over an encrypted secure tunnel via the internet, using the OpenVPN protocol, to a VPN server.


OpenVPN Connect is the only VPN client created, developed, and maintained by OpenVPN Inc. Our customers use it with our business solutions, listed below, for secure remote access, enforcing zero trust network access (ZTNA), protecting access to SaaS apps, securing IoT communications, and in many other scenarios.

- CloudConnexa™: This cloud-delivered service integrates virtual networking with essential secure access service edge (SASE) capabilities such as firewall-as-a-service (FWaaS), intrusion detection and prevention system (IDS/IPS), DNS-based content filtering, and zero-trust network access (ZTNA). Using CloudConnexa™, businesses can quickly deploy and manage a secure overlay network that connects all of their applications, private networks, workforce, and IoT/IIoT devices without owning and operating a multitude of complex, hard-to-scale security and data networking gear. CloudConnexa™ can be accessed from more than 30 worldwide locations and uses patent-pending technologies to create a full-mesh network topology for improved performance and routing to private applications—hosted on multiple connected networks—simply by using the application name (for example,

- OpenVPN Access Server: This self-hosted VPN solution for remote access and site-to-site networking provides granular access control and supports SAML, RADIUS, LDAP, and PAM for user authentication. It can be deployed as a cluster to provide active/active redundancy and for operating at high scale.

OpenVPN Connect can also be used to connect to any server or service compatible with OpenVPN protocol or running the open source Community edition.


OpenVPN Connect receives configuration information for the VPN server using a “connection profile” file. It can be imported into the app using a file with a .ovpn file extension or a website URL. The file or website URL and user credentials are provided by the VPN service administrator.

Great little app. I’ve used a few VPNs in the past and this has been the best for my needs by far. I’m simply looking for security, reliability, ease of use. 5 Stars on all fronts. For those looking for connections to servers across the world to get access to video streaming +++ I can’t comment, that’s not me.

Broken ipv6 vs ipv4

I’ve done extensive testing with identical opvn profiles on a LTE iPad and iPhone. The ipv4 iPad works and the ipv6 iPhone doesn’t. The iPhone connects but passes traffic only intermittently. Routing and DNS issues need to be fixed.

Suddenly became ineffective

Used to work so well, now it only works for a few minutes before giving up the ghost. So disappointing. IOS v13.3
