Jamesbob: Why would you want to do that when the system has built in VPN settings. What me and ScubaOnline want to do is to create a shortcut to an VPN profile that has already been set in the phones settings.

This is to avoid having go into the telephone/tablets settings every time you want to connect to your VPN connection.

Hello ScubaOnline. I am Avinash, from Samsung.

Kindly try the below steps to create a VPN shortcut on the home screen :

Step 1 : Go to the VPN webpage and Tap 3 lines(icon) at top right corner.
Step 2 : Select "Add page to"
Step 3 : Select "Home screen"
Step 4 : Add

Hope this can help you.
Thank you.

I have Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G. I can't find the option against the VPN profile which I created .. ie. No option 'Add page to ' ! Only I can see 'Add VPN Profile'

If I open the existing profile, it shows the status and option to 'Disconnect' and 'Cancel'

 

Please help !

Thanks

I agree with ScubaOnline, what do you mean by this, we do not want to create a shortcut to a webpage, but a shortcut to a VPN profile that has been setup in the phone/tablets settings. This question is not resolved/solved.

I did it via: Settings -> Procedures (create a new manual procedure with the action leading to the Connection -> VPN). Then I added the widget to screen.
