AnyConnect for Android

Initial Setup - Step 1

For Android smartphones there are different apps that allow a connection. AnyConnect ICS+ works best on smartphones using Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher. On devices that do not yet benefit from Android 4, there is a separate app for Samsung and HTC smartphones. If you don't have a smartphone from either manufacturer and don't have an Android 4, AnyConnect can only be used if your device is "rooted", with Rooted AnyConnect. Just installing this app is not enough, the device still has to be rooted by itself, which is not recommended in most cases!

After the installation, start the corresponding app.
