Learn how to make iOS apps work with Per App VPN in minutes – no code or coding required. Secure mobile data in transit fast and easy. Per App VPN Routing is a feature supplied by Apple’s iOS to tunnel connections through a VPN.

The only way to configure Per-App VPN is by enrolling the device in a Mobile Device Management (MDM) system and linking apps that are managed by the MDM system with a VPN configuration. The app’s traffic will then be handled by Apple’s VPN component.
