Updating Tailscale

Our team regularly releases connectivity fixes for our client apps. We recommend always being on the latest version of Tailscale. Here’s how to upgrade on different platforms:

Windows

Upgrade Tailscale by downloading the our Windows installer and running it. This will update your existing installation to the latest version.

macOS

Tailscale for macOS is only available via the Mac App Store, and can be updated from the Mac App Store’s “Updates” page.

Note

Some users have reported issues updating from the Mac App Store. If you encounter this, close Tailscale from the menu bar and try updating again. We’re working on a fix.

iOS

Tailscale for iOS is only available via the App Store, and will auto-update by default. If you manually need to update, you can do so from the App Store updates page.

Note

Some users have reported issues updating from the App Store. If you encounter this, close the Tailscale app. Then navigate to Settings > VPN, disconnect, and try updating again. We’re working on a fix.

Linux

Tailscale can be upgraded on supported Linux distros by using the upgrade command from the package manager used to install Tailscale. Here’s a reference for common distros.
