This manual will help you to install GOOSE VPN with the OpenVPN Connect app on your Android device step by step.
2. Download the files
First, we need to download some files. Open the following webpage in your browser:
Navigate to the "Manual Settings" tab and scroll down on mobile devices or look at the right side of the page on devices with a larger screen.
Here you will see a token. Remember where you can find this token. You will need it later.
Click .ovpn files
Here you can download the .ovpn files we need later in this step by step manual. These documents include the OpenVPN configurations with which you can connect with our servers. For example, the Netherlands 8.ovpn file is needed to connect with the Netherlands 8 server.
3. Download the OpenVPN Connect app
Download the OpenVPN Connect app in the Play Store. When the app is downloaded and opened, you will see this screen. Click on "OVPN Profile". We are going to add a profile for one of our servers, so you can connect with it.
4. Import the .ovpn file
Now you should see this screen. Search for the .ovpn file that we have just downloaded in your download folder on your device and tap on it. The name of the .ovpn file should now be orange and there should appear a checkmark behind the name. Tap "Import" in the upper right corner.
5. Add the profile
Now you will see a screen where you have to enter a Username and Password. Click on "Username" and enter the email address you used to register with GOOSE VPN.
Click on the check next to the 'Save password' text, this will open the Password input field.
Then tap on Password. Here you have to enter the token you saw in the second step. We recommend that you copy the token from the webpage and paste it into this input field.
After you have entered your email address and the token, you need to tap the Add button at the top right to add this profile.
NOTE: Do you not see the password field? It will become visible in the next step.
6. Activate the OpenVPN profile
The profile you have just added now appears in this list. Tap the grey toggle at the left side to activate this OpenVPN profile and connect with this server.
7. Select a certificate
You will probably see a message about selecting a certificate. This is not necessary for our connection, so you can just tap Continue here.
8. Add more servers or stop the connection
Eventually the toggle should get green and the VPN connection starts. Now you can add more profiles for other servers by tapping the big orange button at the bottom right. This will make it easy to switch between different servers.
If you want to stop the VPN connection, you can tap the green toggle.
9. Do the free online privacy check
To see if the VPN connection is set up correctly, you can use our free online privacy check. The website will immediately let you know if your connection is secured or not.
Does the website indicate that you are safe online?
Congratulations! You are now secure only with GOOSE VPN via the OpenVPN Connect app on your Android device.
