Manual App Setup (Android)

If you reside in a country/region such as China, Cuba, or Myanmar you may be unable to access or purchase apps from the Google Play Store.

If your device lacks access to the Google Play Store, you can still use the VirtualShield Android app but you'll need to download and install the file manually.


Manual Setup

Before you can install VirtualShield, you will need to make sure that third-party apps are allowed on your device.
Go to Menu > Settings > Security, and check Unknown Sources to allow your phone to install apps from sources other than the Google Play Store.

Note: Android 8.0 Oreo does things a little differently. Rather than checking a global setting to allow installation from unknown sources, you'll be prompted to allow your browser or file manager to install APKs the first time you attempt to do so.


Next, visit the link below to download the VirtualShield installer to your device:
https://downloads.virtualshieldcdn.com/apps/android/VirtualShield.apk

Find the APK file in the location where it was downloaded, tap it, then hit the Install button.
Congratulations, VirtualShield is now installed on your device, it can be accessed from your App Drawer or Home Screen.
