Setting up VPN access on Chromebook ChromeOS.
VPNUK recommends the VPNUK App when using ChromeOS.
The VPNUK app has been developed from the ground up to our very own specification running the highly secure, multi configurable and widely compatible OpenVPN engine. offering an extremely simple interface, it has been designed and created to be very easy to use, we have ensured zero configuration is required on your part in order to use the VPNUK app. Once installed simply enter your login credentials, choose your server and then hit the connect button, it really is as simple as that. Once connected you will be presented with a country flag in the device taskbar, so you will always know which country you are currently connected through. You can download the VPNUK App from Google Play Store or directly from our website.
WireGuard® VPN Connection
WireGuard® is an extremely simple yet fast and modern VPN that utilizes state-of-the-art cryptography. It aims to be faster, simpler, leaner, and more useful than IPsec, while avoiding the massive headache. It intends to be considerably more performant than OpenVPN. WireGuard® is designed as a general purpose VPN for running on embedded interfaces and super computers alike, fit for many different circumstances. Initially released for the Linux kernel, it is now cross-platform (Windows, macOS, BSD, iOS, Android) and widely deployable. It is currently under heavy development, but already it might be regarded as the most secure, easiest to use, and simplest VPN solution in the industry. “WireGuard” and the “WireGuard” logo are registered trademarks of Jason A. Donenfeld. WireGuard® is available and should always be updated from the developers website at wireguard.com
Newer versions of Chrome OS are now compatible with Android APK files, you can also download apps from Google Play store. The VPNUK Android App currently has some compatibility issues with ChromeOS, so we recommend users install and use OpenVPN for Android by Arne Schwabe for the time being. Another alternative setup tutorial uses the official OpenVPN Connect application from OpenVPN Technologies. Both versions are free of charge and run without any issue on all Android devices.
Older versions of Chrome OS are not compatible with Android APK files, we have a pre-configured setup tutorial for creating a manually configured connection OpenVPN Connection. This tutorial describes how to configure and setup an OpenVPN connection on Google Chrome OS. You are required to download and install our pre-configured certificate files, we’ll go through that with you during the setup in this tutorial.
