Samsung Work Profile VPN not working on One UI 6: How to Fix

In this guide, we will show you a nifty method to fix the issue of Work Profile VPN not working in One UI 6 based on Android 14. The sixth iteration of the OS has just been rolled out by Samsung. Based on the latest Android 14, you are about to welcome abode a plethora of goodies onto your device. These include the likes of new notification design, Serif Fonts, Quick Settings toggle, Lock Screen, and Battery Settings, and tweaks to Camera, Gallery, Weather, and Reminders apps.

However, this is just one side of the coin. Being in the beta stage, you are bound to get bugged by quite a few issues [as is evident by our comprehensive coverage]. The latest one to make its entry is the fact that Work Profile VPN is not working in One UI 6. Long pressing of the tile no longer brings up the work profile option and it’s no longer to be found in the settings menu either.

To make matters worse, if you have a VPN enabled in your work profile, and when you turn off the work profile, then ideally the VPN should turn off as well. However, that is not the case, and the VPN stays enabled. Fortunately, there does exist a nifty workaround that should help you rectify this issue. And in this guide, we will make you aware of just that. Follow along.
