Install Tailscale on Android

Tailscale works with Android 8.0 or later, including ChromeOS and Android TV devices.

  1. Download Tailscale from the Play Store or scan the QR code on the Tailscale Download page.

  2. Launch the app and click Get Started, accept the prompts to install a VPN configuration, and allow push notifications. Push notifications serve to alert users that they need to reauthenticate. For example, when keys are about to expire.

  3. Tap Sign in with Google to use your system Google account, or Sign in with other to use any other supported SSO identity provider.

Congratulations! You’ve added your Android (or ChromeOS) device to your Tailscale network.

MDM deployments

You can use app restrictions to personalize Tailscale for Android programmatically. This can help you deploy Tailscale within an organization using solutions like MDM.
