  • What is an Android VPN?

    An Android VPN is a VPN built to encrypt the internet connection on your Android device.

    Here’s how a VPN (virtual private network) works:

    • It encrypts your internet connection to ensure that nobody on the same network as you can see what you’re doing online.
    • It hides your IP address by routing your internet connection through a remote server, giving you a new IP address and letting you access content in that region.

    Together, the encryption and IP address masking protect your data and keep you anonymous on any network, including unsecured public Wi-Fi.

  • Why does my Android device need a VPN?

    A VPN secures your Android device’s internet connection to prevent anyone from eavesdropping on you or intercepting your data. This is especially useful if you’re concerned with the privacy of your device, or if you travel often and rely on free unsecured public Wi-Fi — in either case, you should get a VPN.

    VPNs secure your internet traffic so that external parties, such as your ISP, government, or employer, can’t monitor your online activity. By giving you a new IP address in other regions of the world, VPNs can also help you unblock websites, access content, and watch TV online.

  • How do I set up AVG Secure VPN for Android?

    Setting up a VPN on your phone is easy. Just download AVG Secure VPN from the Google Play Store, open the app when it’s finished installing, select the remote server you want to use, then connect — and enjoy a securely encrypted online experience.

  • Does Android have a built-in VPN?

    Android does offer a built-in VPN, using PPTP, L2PT/IPSec, and IPSec protocols. But it’s complicated to set up and use, and you’ll need to already have access to a VPN server. The built-in Android VPN won’t be optimized for speed or performance like a leading VPN will be, and you won’t be able to use leading VPN protocols like OpenVPN.

    The best way to secure your privacy online is with a dependable and fast premium VPN, such as AVG Secure VPN. It’s built on the open-source OpenVPN protocol for optimal security and speed, and with just a single tap, you’ll connect to any of our lightning-fast servers all across the world.

  • Is AVG Secure VPN for Android free?

    Try AVG Secure VPN for free today with our 7-day free trial to securely encrypt your internet connection, hide your IP address, and protect your privacy online. Many free Android VPNs can’t promise the same degree of protection you’ll get with AVG — and they might even steal and sell your data. When it comes to your online privacy, protect your Android device with a VPN you can trust.
