In the early 2009 there devices were initially based on Android OS but later in 2010 they also added Windows & features in their device. It is a complete Smartphone with exclusive features and good market reputation.

Well, coming back to my original topic which is configuration of VPN in HTC.

Setting Personal VPN on any mobile device including HTC, Android, iPhone or iPad does not require that a person should be tech geek or something. It is extremely easy and most of the Mobile Device VPN Setups are similar to setups on other Mobile Devices.

I will guide you with the simple and easy steps which will help you to configure VPN on your HTC smart phone.


Add a new VPN connection:

Step # 1:

  • Tap the Home icon, tap Menu, and tap Settings.
  • Tap Wireless & networks.







Step # 2: Tap VPN settings


Step # 3: Tap Add VPN



Step # 4: Select the type of VPN to add (PPTP, L2TP, L2TP/IPSec PSK VPN, L2TP/IPsec CRT VP)



Step # 5: Enter VPN details such as VPN name, VPN server, etc

(The said settings will depend on the type of VPN protocol and the respective VPN Service you want to setup on your device)




Let’s Try L2TP VPN Details:

VPN Name: Name it whatever you want, e.g. VPN 1

VPN Server: IP Address or Address would be given to your by your VPN Provider or Network Admin.

L2TP Secret: It will be given by you VPN Service Provider or Admin. It’s secret security key to ensure that we are connecting to the right mobile device and server.

Leave DNS Search Domains as it is. Save the settings and move back to home screen.

Connecting to the VPN:

  • Tap the Home icon, tap Menu, and tap Settings.
  • Tap Wireless & networks
  • Tap VPN settings
  • The VPN connections which you have just added will be displayed.
  • Tap the VPN through which you want to connect.
  • A dialog box will open asking for your credentials, put in the details and tap again.

When connected to a VPN, you will see an ongoing notification in the Status bar on your phone. If you should get disconnected, you will receive a notification and an option to go back to the VPN settings.

Disconnecting from the VPN:

  • Simply open the notification panel at the top of the screen on your phone and tap on the VPN notification then tap again to disconnect.

Which VPN to go with?

There are hundreds if not thousands of VPN services available in the market and mind it a lot of them do not support Android, and if the do, it’s not 100% reliable. So you need to go with the best – one that offers you with reliability, speed and stability on reasonable prices and coupled with great support.

  1. I was wondering how I would be able to find my username and password for my own VPN that I set up? Thanks though this was pretty useful.

    • Hello Kevin,

      Thank you for posting your question.

      Unfortunately, i am unable to clearly understand your question. While setting your own VPN via LogMeIn (or Himachi) , Comodo Unite (or EasyVPN) or through any other source you must get the user name and password as in that you are creating your own.

      However, if you can provide me with some more details of it then i will be able to guide you with the best of my knowledge.

      Hope this will help you.

      Thanks 🙂
