Android PPTP VPN Setup

Step 1

From the home screen, find the ‘Settings’ app, and open it. If you don’t have it on your home screen, you can tap the application drawer at the bottom, search for the ‘Settings’ app and open it.

Step 2

Once the ‘Settings’ app is open, scroll to the top and tap ‘More’ under the ‘Wireless & networks’ category.

Step 3

Under the ‘More’ option in settings, tap ‘VPN.’

Step 4

The VPN settings dialog will appear. You will need to create a new VPN configuration by tapping the (+) symbol in the top right.

Step 5

Once you tap the (+) symbol, an ‘Edit VPN Profile’ dialog will appear. Fill in the form field with the following information:

  • Enter a custom name for the VPN
  • Select ‘PPTP’ for ‘Type’
  • For the ‘Server address’ field, fill in the server address/hostname for your dedicated IP or use our Dynamic VPN and Chines list or according to your purchased package.
  • Leave ‘PPP encryption (MPPE)’ enabled, and click the ‘SAVE’ button located in the bottom right.

Step 6

If you click the newly created VPN connection, a login window will popup. Fill in your VPNShazam username and password in the form fields, select the ‘Save account information’ checkbox if you don’t want to type it each time you initiate the connection, and click ‘CONNECT.’

Step 7

You should now be connected to the VPN. You can verify your connection by looking for the key icon in your notifications at the top of your device. If you get a connection error, confirm that you entered your username and password correctly. If that fails, contact our support team for further assistance, making sure to provide our team with any error or warning messages shown in the status indicator.

Step 8

To disconnect, tap on the connected VPN in your VPN settings.
