Ratings and Reviews
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.
Dear Wireguard Developers,
I've just downloaded Wireguard for iOS on my iPhone X. I found that it could not connect correctly. When I checked the log, I found "Failed to send handshake initiation", "no route to host" error messages.
When I further checked the problem, I found that there is no Wireless Setting option in the WireGuard settings page in the iOS settings. I understand that this setting will only appear in iOS devices with Cellular sold in China. Under normal circumstances, China region devices will pop up the user permission to use data when an app first runs or requests to access internet (You can select: off / WLAN Only / WLAN & Cellular Data), but WireGuard does not pop up this alert when it first runs, so the Wireless setting option does not appear in the iOS settings, it results in WireGuard can never use any network (WLAN and Cellular Data).
To solve this problem, I'm eagerly recommending that you add a "Import tunnel from url" option (or any option that can trigger internet access request from the app). It will not just function as a new method to import tunnel, but it will also trigger internet access request when used which will trigger the pop-up asking permission to access internet.
Please, please, please take this into your consideration! I'm looking forward to getting Wireguard connected on my iPhone and I believe many people have the same issue.
Thank you so much!
On-demand Not Working after iOS 15 update
This app was working great when I disconnected from my WiFi when I had prior versions of iOS; I had it set to automatically connect to the VPN and it did this seamlessly. After the iOS upgrade to iOS 15, this doesn’t automatically connect anymore and I have manually connect using the VPN button in my iPhone settings. I also have to manually disconnect from the VPN when I connect to my home WiFi. I don’t see any WiFi SSIDs show up on the list of WiFi network to exclude. I removed the app and reinstalled the latest version but this did not solve it. This is probably not the developers fault, but I hope they can fix it. It’s a fantastic app, otherwise.
