We Just Added IKEv2 Support for Android Devices
We’re happy to say that, as of today, you can start using the IKEv2 VPN protocol on your Android devices with CactusVPN. The setup process is pretty simple, but we put together a helpful tutorial to show you all the steps you need to take.
What Is IKEv2 Anyway?
IKEv2 (Internet Key Exchange version 2) is a VPN protocol based on IPSec that was developed by Microsoft together with Cisco for mobile users. While it’s not supported on many platforms yet, IKEv2 offers multiple benefits:
- Highly secure encryption (AES)
- Automatically re-establishes dropped connections to a VPN whenever you reconnect to the web
- MOBIKE protocol support, meaning IKEv2 is great for switching networks
- Fast and stable connections
Also, we’ve got an in-depth article on our website discussing everything there is to know about IKEv2 if you’re interested.
Oh, and don’t worry – IKEv2 is simple to set up on your Android device. In fact, like we already mentioned, we have an easy-to-follow tutorial that shows you everything you need to do.
