IKEv2/IPSec protocol is no longer supported on iOS and macOS

We will begin dropping support for the IKEv2/IPSec connection protocol on our macOS and iOS applications from June 15, 2023.

Due to the way macOS and iOS work, connections based on the IKEv2/IPSec protocol are prone to data leakage outside the VPN tunnel under certain conditions. In addition, IKEv2/IPSec lacks development flexibility compared to other widely used protocols. Our customer security and privacy are our top priority, so considering these factors we’ve decided to discontinue support for the aforementioned protocol on our macOS and iOS applications. 

Discontinuation of IKEv2/IPSec will take place starting from macOS 8.5.0 application version. Discontinuation on iOS will take place starting from the 8.10.1 version.

The IKEv2/IPSec protocol will not be accessible through future builds of macOS and iOS applications. The IKEv2/IPSec protocol remains available as an option for manual VPN connection setups.
