With that being said, let’s dive into the core of this post.

How to Setup VPN on OnePlus 3

You can setup a VPN in two different ways on OnePlus 3. One way is to download a VPN app and purchase their services and another way is to change few settings in your OnePlus 3 device. I am going to walk you through both the ways. Let’s have a glimpse at the first method.

There you go! You have just paved the way to the anonymity and top-notch security.

Method 2: Using the Native Settings

In case you face any issue in connecting to the VPN using the above method, you must follow the steps given below to carry out the same process from the inbuilt Settings.

Step #1. Grab your phone and go to the Settings. (You can access the Settings screen either from the notification panel or by tapping the app drawer).
