[Wireguard] Wireguard on Android

Update 11.05.2020: I recommend using the PiVPN script (especially when using a unprivileged container). https://nocin.eu/wireguard-set-up-wireguard-using-pivpn-inside-lxc/

In the F-Droid Store you’ll find the wireguard android app.

To get wireguard running, add a new peer to your server. So ssh into your sever (in my case an lxc on proxmox) and create a new key pair.

wg genkey | tee privatekey | wg pubkey > publickey

Now create the android.conf. Define the interface and add your server as peer.

PrivatKey = <android_privat_key>
Address =
PublicKey = <server_public_key>
AllowedIPs =
Endpoint = my.doamin.org:51820
PersistentKeepalive = 25

Then add the new android peer to the server config.

PublicKey = <android_public_key>
AllowedIPs =

Now restart the wireguard interface to load the new config:

wg-quick down wg0
wg-quick up wg0

The fastest way to get your config on the android client is using a QR-Code. I used greencode for this.

apt install greencode
qrencode -t ansiutf8 < android.conf

Open your wireguard app, scan the QR-Code and connect to your server.
