What technology does HQ use?

HQ VPN uses HashiCorp for our public key and encryption infrastructure and the latest encryption and VPN formats.

We use the industry leading IKEv2/IPsec protocol leveraging built-in iOS and MacOS tools for an extremely secure VPN. There is no need to install an app. By limiting the number of devices that we support, we can maintain the use of the best encryption methods available.

The VPN is optimized for iOS 12 and macOS 14 (Mojave). See which devices are supported.
