Is PPTP really insecure ?


PPTP has always been considered weak security. Now iOS 10 and macOS Sierra users won't be able to connect to PPTP server. iOS 10 and macOS Sierra removed PPTP connections from any VPN profile when a user upgrades their device. Even though PPTP protocol is still available on iOS 9 or OS X El Capitan and earlier, Apple don't recommend that you use it for secure, private communication, but suggest to try one of these other VPN protocols for user-based authentication that are more secure:

  • L2TP/IPSec
  • IKEv2/IPSec

All VPN protocols are supported by DrayTek routers. Additionally, our SmartVPN client is free for the Microsoft, Android, and Apple users. You are able to download it from our website or apps store.
