VPN with FRITZ!Box

Secure Access to the Home Network

A virtual private network (VPN) allows you to establish bug-proof encrypted connections over the internet to your FRITZ!Box and all devices in the home network.

You can set up VPN connections to the FRITZ!Box on a smartphone, tablet, and computer - or in another FRITZ!Box to securely connect both home networks with each other. The FRITZ!Box supports two different VPN solutions for this purpose:

  • The established IPSec is supported directly by many operating systems and also allows you to establish VPN connections between the FRITZ!Box and a company's VPN. Current FRITZ!Box models also benefit from high data transfer rates through IPSec hardware acceleration.
  • The modern WireGuard makes it especially fast and easy to create a VPN connection. On smartphones and tablets, all you have to do is scan a QR code for example.
