    Hi and welcome to the forums. :)

    To enable a vpn connection you have to have at least a pattern lock set on your lock screen. (Pin or password is also OK). Face unlock is not secure enough. This is an android requirement and quite sensible as vpns are normally used to access secure data and would be pointless if the phone itself is not secured.

    Hope this explains

    Hi

    Did you try rebooting the phone before reseting the vpn (with screen lock already set? )

    Does the vpn try to connect? Have you tried another vpn account? (Could be the server)

    The pattern lock or better is needed in any case. If you post back with me details we will try and help more :)
