Attention : GlobalProtect attempts to create a VPN connection

L2 Linker

Hi there,

Maybe this question is more relevant to designers of Android Operating System, but I will try with Palo Alto first.

I've got Nexus 5 Phone, and Android KitKat 4.4

I would like to make Android Phone to connect automatically to VPN and I managed to make single sign-on in a way that I don't have to put my user name and password.

However, the phone still doesn't connect without my interaction.

Every time I reboot the phone, or Global Protect stays off-line for too long I get a message:


Global Protect attempts to create a VPN connection.

By Proceeding, you are giving the application permission to intercept all network traffic.

Do NOT accept unless you trust the application. Otherwise you run the risk of having your data compromised by malicious software.

"check box" I trust this application.

Cancel / OK"

Is the any way Android Device  / Global Protect / Palo alto can be configured to trust the app ?

Thanks in advance,



L4 Transporter

I had the same behavior on Sony Xperia with Android 4.2 last holidays, Now I haven't GP installed on my smartphone.
