    I would like to see this feature added as well.  Especially with the latest Senate vote to repeal any privacy regulations.

    With the recent US Congress decision to roll back (and eliminate) privacy laws, I'd like to bring this idea front and center Jeff C.

    Products like Circle and Filtr are catching on and I think Eero could eclipse Luma et al by supporting VPN connection at the router level to protect all devices. Device specific traffic direction would be great.

    Hi everyone —

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on using a VPN natively with eero. We have definitely seen an uptick in this request given everything that is going on—however, I ask that any discussion around this topic doesn't become a political one (not that it has, but I'd like to get ahead of it). Let's try and keep all discussion regarding this matter within the space of eero and connectivity.

    With that said, we don't have any news to share regarding VPN implementation. We absolutely understand the interest, and we'll continue to evaluate it on our end. In the meantime, if you'd like, eero does support VPN passthrough. 

    Thanks again!

      Jeff C. 

      I appreciate your responsiveness to us as an Eero user community. When I first selected Eero it was under the expectation that this product was going to evolve and improve. I feel that this has yet to happen. Nor do I feel that the Eero Plus subscription service meets this request from the consumers - it’s simply a “vpn patch” for a few devices. Native VPN has been available for years elsewhere and it is past time that Eero add native VPN to its features on its current devices and not just the next generations. The novelty of a tidy little white mesh WiFi box will only last so long before the high market price drives other consumers away to mesh competitors who add theses advanced features. It has been nearly a year and as far as I can tell nothing new has come about. The idea of spending $500 and then having to set up VPN pass through is less than savory. So to that end has there been any progress on the matter?

      Thanks for sharing your interest in native VPN at the eero level. This a feature we are continuing to track, and the continued feedback and interest from customers like you help us continue to share that there is an interest in bringing a feature like this to eero.

      In regards to the product evolving, while this specific feature hasn't been released, our team has released many different features that have been requested by customers, including:

      Thanks again. As soon as there is an update to share regarding native VPN, I will post an update to this thread.

      Jeff C. These are all basic features that should have been provided to begin with. Don't try to take credit for being innovating or supporting the need of your customers. It has been over 2 years and we still cannot use of VPN shrives natively on our device that we paid and enormous amount of money for. We invested in you, why won't you invest in us?

      Roy Wells I am also becoming really impatient with eero. I too have been waiting for this feature. I will never recommend this to the businesses i support if they don't implement such a basic feature.

    I'm new to this whole VPN service idea.  I will be buying a service (more than likely NordVPN) within the next day or so.  I've already purchased the Eero and will receive it tomorrow.

    I just want to confirm one thing I am confused about.  Is this request to allow VPN at the router level so all devices will take benefit?  Also meaning that Eero allows you to use NordVPN (or other service) but you must use one device at a time?

    Nord has an App in the Apple store to install on wireless devices for this. It’s also in the Google Play store.

      Chessmassacre We want router level VPN....not device level....it would be a hass to put it on all the devices.

    I doubt they will provide this functionality since they try to sell their own VPN service.  However, it would be most helpful for those of us in certain use cases that would not be able to use their service.

      derekcentrico  Agree, and there is nothing preventing to have both possibilities.

    I pay for Eero Plus, which I love, and enjoy using Encrypt.me on my devices while traveling. However, not all of my devices at home are supported by Encrypt.me (i.e. TVs, Sonos, etc). I'd like to have native support for VPN on the Eero network itself. It feels like it would be a massive differentiator for the product. Happy to pay for it or have it part of Plus.

    I think it would be great to be able to support the following:

    1. Overall protection for all devices.

    2. Support for per device configuration (i.e. different region per device).

    3. Ability to use different VPN providers.

    +1. Any good VPN provider would be sufficient.
