Passepartout is a non-official, user-friendly OpenVPN® client for iOS.
Passepartout is in public beta on TestFlight.
By using a beta version of the app, you understand that the software might be unstable, unreliable or plain broken from time to time.
All profiles in one place
Passepartout lets you handle multiple profiles in one single place and quickly switch between them.
Ease of use
With its native look & feel, Passepartout focuses on ease of use. It does so by stripping the .ovpn flags that are today obsolete or rarely used. With good approximation, it mimics the most relevant features you will find in OpenVPN 2.4.x.
Trust cellular or Wi-Fi networks to fine-grain your connectivity. You can then choose to retain a VPN connection when entering a trusted network, or prevent it completely.
See your connection parameters
Passepartout strives for transparency, by showing a fairly detailed yet understandable resume of your connection parameters.
Disconnect on sleep
Keeping the VPN active in the background provides smoother operation, but may be tough for the battery. You might want to use this feature if you're concerned about battery life. When the device goes to sleep, the VPN will disconnect to then reconnect on device wake-up.
No unrequested activity
Passepartout is a VPN client and does absolutely nothing else without your consent. The providers infrastructures are obtained via a static GitHub API only and only if you manually refresh them.
Presets for major providers
Passepartout can connect to a few well-known VPN providers with an existing account:
- Private Internet Access
- ...more soon!
In preset mode, you can pick pre-resolved IPv4 endpoints when DNS is problematic.
Import .ovpn profiles
Passepartout can import .ovpn configuration files. This way you can fine-tune encryption without tweaking and reimporting a new configuration. Below are a few limitations worth mentioning.
- TLS wrapping
- UDP fragmentation, i.e.
