    Need some help please. I want to automatically start my VPN app when I connect to a wireless SSID other than my home network. Can anyone provide assistance?

    Thanks in advance

    This isn't something that a VPN app and phone could be configured to do, I don't think. But might be possible to create a Tasker macro to automate it.

    I use a VPN myself, but will use it on my home network as well when I need to.

    Don't know how many Tasker experts are here. I've never had a need to use it myself, and have only read about it.

    They do have their own forum and Google Group. Which might be a better place put your requirements. More Tasker experts probably. :)

    Thanks for the info Mikedt
     
  6. Sorry for the delay ... I was recovering from a major melt down of my desktop.

    There are two major areas for creating user control in Android ... Tasker and MacroDroid.

    Tasker is appreciated by people who what to become involved in the process and hated by people who don't.

    MacroDroid is appreciated by people who just want one issue addressed and hated by others who find it limiting.

    Do you want to get involved or just solve this one?

    Example ... I have two Tasker profiles ... one disables WiFi connections in my device if I am out of range of my WiFi network and the other enables WiFi if I am within range. The connections are set to automatic in my device. They could easily launch or kill an app.

    (The purpose of mine is to use WiFi when in my office and use Mobile when in a customer's office.)

    The way to learn Tasker is to start out simple and nibble away at it. Trying it is the only way you are going to find out if it is "for you: or not.

    (mikedt you don't know what you're missing.)

    ... Thom

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
Adding Join (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.join) to the mix will even allow you to trigger tasks from another Android device or PC! ☑ Scenes
Design your own UI and use it to display any info you want or trigger any task! ☑ App Creation
Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker! Check out a list of plugins https://tasker.joaoapps.com/pluginlist.html. You can also call most of the Web APIs from Tasker with the powerful HTTP Auth and HTTP Request actions!
