WireGuard is a fast, modern, and secure VPN tunnel. This app allows users to manage and use WireGuard tunnels. The app can import new tunnels from archives and files, from QR codes, or you can create one from scratch. It is currently undergoing rapid development, and we are listening to our users in implementing new and exciting features. Please visit wireguard.com for a summary of the WireGuard protocol and how to set up your own WireGuard server for use with this app.
Sometimes the tunnel would disconnect under high memory low. This has been resolved.

Fast, Light and Most Importantly—Stable!
As proven by my own experience—Absolutely the single best app for using your WireGuard VPN protocol profiles. The connection is stable and stays connected for days to the tunnel through multiple hops on and off of cellular to and from WiFi networks.
It is open source, well supported and absolutely brilliant. This is an incredible asset and wonderfully executed. To all those involved in bringing this app and WireGuard to iOS, thank you!
I am an advocate of using VPNs and the OpenVPN protocol and the OpenVPN Connect app for iOS, however, the release of this app changes everything. While this app is not the first WireGuard app in the AppStore, it is the only one I would ever trust—as it was created with the same transparency and openness as the WireGuard protocol itself.
A remarkable improvement over OpenVPN
[UPDATE2] After two months usage I must confess I'm still impressed. With that said i do have one concern and thats excessive data usage. For the past several years ive been averaging less then 1 GB a month. Since installing wireguard my cellular data usage has exploded. Last month my cellular usage exceeded 5GB and this month its on track to exceed 7GB. Currently i have no explanation as i have not installed any new apps or changed my cellular behavior. My only recourse is to go back to Open VPN and see if my data usage goes back to normal.
[UPDATE] After a month of usage i must confess this app & protocol has exceeded all my expectations. To date It has NEVER failed to smoothly transition between wifi and cellular. Ive never had to reboot and performance is predictable based on which VPN server i choose. Im now so confident of its ability i finally removed my OpenVPN client.
As a long term (2+ years) OpenVPN user i must confess i tired of all the issues related to transitioning between cellular & wifi. Those days are now in the past.
Simple, reliable and trust worthy is what i expect of VPN software and thus far Wireguard has delivered. Thus far i am extremely impressed.
great if you’re up to setting up your own backend
Wireguard is ideal for people who want to set up their own VPN infrastructure rather than trusting someone else’s. Much, much simpler than IPSec or OpenVPN, and very fast.
I like that the app can be configured to auto connect on WiFi, cellular, or both. And that you can whitelist or blacklist WiFi SSIDs.
However, since upgrading to iOS 13, I’ve found the VPN periodically stalls, preventing any traffic at all. I can get it going again by restarting the tunnel. Not sure if this is a bug in the app or in iOS 13, but it’s pretty frustrating. This wasn’t a problem in iOS 12.x.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
