Android - Creating a App Widget


A widget is an interactive icon that will let you operate a program from a display screen without having to completely open the application. The Private Internet Access app provides five different widgets that you can add to your home screen. To add a PIA widget to your screen please follow the below instructions:

Step 1: Main Screen

First, hold down on the screen you want to add the widget. This will change the screen and present an option at the bottom of the screen labeled “Widgets”.

Step 2: Widget Options

Select the “Widgets” option. This will bring you to a screen that will have widget options for all the apps that support them on your device. Swipe to the right or left until you locate the PIA VPN widgets.
