I have seen a couple of historic posts asking similar questions but nothing indicating any official position or offering a solution.
I'm using miui rom and there isn't google play on my Android phone. So, i cannot download openvpn connect from Google Play store. is it possible to install official OpenVPN Connect without using the Google Play store? Maybe there is official APK which is hosted by openvpn, please share the link. I see on the openvpn.net website shares google play link only.
If not, is it safe to download/install openvpn connect app from other sources like https://apkpure.com/, https://www.androidapksbox.com/, etc?

Thanks,

Unfortunately there is no official APK direct download link.

OpenVPN Connect is offered via PlayStore and Amazon Marketplace.

Installing an apk from a third party service is always risky because you don't know if the apk is the official one or it was modified.

That is true - in general. But it is not true if you download an apk directly from the developer (in this case OpenVPN). It would definitely be the official apk.
I'm surprised there is no official apk link. Usually a developer provides such a link so that people can directly use an apk without being routed trough an app store. So i suggest OpenVPN provide such a link.

After an internal discussion I realized (I did not know yet) that we maintain some standalone downloads. You can find it here:

There are some alternative app stores like yalp store that download the Alps directions from the google app store. Haven't heard anything bad about that one
