ZeroTier One for iOS allows you to join ZeroTier virtual networks as VPN connections on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.

ZeroTier creates peer to peer virtual Ethernet networks that work anywhere. It's used as a faster alternative to VPNs, to provide a seamless hybrid or multi-site/multi-provider cloud backplane, for remote collaboration and distributed teams, and for Internet of Things (IoT) applications to provide direct end-to-end connectivity to specialized devices.

See for more information.

This app provides virtual network endpoint functionality for iOS devices. To join a virtual network from an iOS device, simply tap the '+' button, enter the network ID and name, and click Join Network! (Once a network is added you can also join it via the iOS VPN control panel. It will appear there as an available VPN connection.)

You can only join one ZeroTier network at once due to an iOS limitation of one VPN connection per network extension app. The app allows you to add multiple networks but if you flip one to 'on' any others currently joined will disconnect.

If you encounter any bugs or serious issues please e-mail for help and we'll try to fix them as soon as we can!

Clients for other platforms are available on and source code to ZeroTier's core engine can be found here:

Makes remotely connecting to my home network so easy!

I wish the VPN didn’t automatically disable itself after a few hours, though.

Works great

I was hesitant to install based on the bad reviews, but I decided to give it a shot anyway. I had my iPhone connected in about 3 minutes. I was able to use Remote Desktop to connect to a couple of machines. It works great. It actually is more friendly than the desktop versions as you can join/un join with a toggle switch. I wish this was in those clients. I highly recommend.

Horrible and Not Reliable

This app works best when it is turned off and not relied on. The VPN connection drops about every 2 minutes and takes about 10 tries to connect. Oh....and according to support, its my cellular or internet connection so when I tried getting on using an Ethernet connection I got................wait for it..............wait for it..........ohhhhhh, wait for it.............the same poor and unreliable connection. Nah, its not the applications fault, its the developers that couldn’t figure out how to make it work well.
