Android PPTP VPN Setup

Step 01.

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 02.

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

Step 03.

In the ‘More’ settings, tap ‘VPN.’

Step 04.

You will see the VPN settings window; from here you will need to create a new VPN setup by tapping the (+) symbol in the top right.

Step 05.

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 06.

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 07.

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 08.

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