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.

Trusted networks

Trust Wi-Fi, cellular (iOS) or wired (macOS) networks to fine-grain your connectivity. You can then choose to retain a VPN connection when entering a trusted network, or prevent it completely.

Siri shortcuts (iOS)

Enjoy the convenience of Siri shortcuts to automate frequent VPN actions.

Override network settings

Override default gateway, DNS, proxy and MTU settings right from the app. Don't bother editing the .ovpn file or your pushed server settings. This is especially useful if you want to override your provider settings, e.g. to integrate your own DNS-based ad blocking.

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 if 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:

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.

You can find details on what may or may not work in the related section of the TunnelKit README.

It's highly recommended to use the Git and Ruby packages provided by Homebrew.


Download the app codebase locally:

$ git clone

Enter the directory and clone the submodules:

$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update

For the VPN to work properly, the app requires:

  • App Groups and Keychain Sharing capabilities
  • App IDs with Packet Tunnel entitlements

both in the main app and the tunnel extension target.

Make sure to update

according to your developer account and your identifiers:
CFG_APP_ID = com.example.MyApp
CFG_APP_LAUNCHER_ID = com.example.MyApp.Launcher // macOS only
CFG_GROUP_ID = com.example.MyAppGroup // omit the "group." prefix
CFG_APPSTORE_ID = 1234567890 // optional for development, can be bogus

After that, open
