Hello all,

I have recently discovered PiHole which I installed on my RPi3 and I was amazed at how efficient it is. Then I discovered PiVPN and went for it so I can get the benefits of PiHole on 3G connections too. Now this is my question comes:

My phone has android 8 which has a VPN section where I can create different profiles. I already have one for Private Internet Access. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out how to do the same for PiVPN. I managed to use PiVPN after I installed Open VPN Connect android app and using the cliend.ovpn file I worked great. The question is: Is there way to configure a PiVPN profile on the android VPN client without installing the Open VPN Connect app?

I don't mind the app, but I like to keep installing stuff to a minimum and use the already present tools.

Thank you and sorry if this sounds like a silly question, but I don't know much about VPNs
