  • Honestly, I’d just assumed this capability when I bought the system.  I love the Eero platform but if I’ve got to shelf it to get router level VPN I’ll consider myself burned and move onto another Mfg/platform that’s interested in staying relevant.  In case it’s unclear I’m at +1 for this feature request.  

  • Hello I'm also a NordVPN and Eero user and would like to be able to connect my Eero to my vpn to protect all of my devices. Thanks.

  • I’d like this as well.

  • I’m another person that has just sunk big money into Eero.  I too request this feature and am terribly disappointed that Eero has essentially ignored a huge segment of its users for so long.  I scrolled through this entire thread and the fact that Eero hasn’t responded with the capability evinces a choice on their part.  That choice is not in its user’s best interest and I sympathize with the frustration.

  • I too would like this feature.  I feel like an idiot to have bought into eero without realizing it was not there. I will use a pass thru but will continue to evaluate other mesh systems and plan to move to one that supports it. eero needs to step to the plate and provide this support.

  • +1 for VPN support. Bought the eero a month ago and I absolutely love it. However, I would love to be able to use a VPN service with the router. Especially because I can see a world where you can simply activate it and deactivate it through the wonderful eero app.

    For me it's a double whammy because I live in Spain and we still do not get eero plus. (solve that as well, by the way!)

  • ExpressVPN user here and I would love this.

    At the very least, the feature could be initially released with OpenVPN support. I don't know about other VPN services, but ExpressVPN provides both their APP, as well as a simple OpenVPN configuration for applications where installing their app isn't an option.

  • It is incredibly disappointing to learn that this capability is not offered (my five-year old Netgear had this feature) and that the request for its addition has been basically ignored for three years. We finally bit the bullet and subscribed to a VPN and now we are looking to upgrade our router. We purchased an Eero Pro three pack today, but I am actually glad now it is going to take so long to arrive. Because I came across this, I will be cancelling my order and looking for a different solution. I understand mesh networks are targeted at people who just want something simple and easy to use, but a mesh network offers features advanced users would like as well. This is a deal killer though. Considering the nearly complete erosion of privacy that now exists, not supporting native VPN is unacceptable. You can offer simplicity and advanced in the same package. To a certain extent, routers have been doing this for years. You cannot brand a device PRO then not offer pro features.
