  • Register new account
  • Change license key to use existing Warp+ subscription
  • Generate WireGuard profile
  • Check account status
  • Print trace information to debug Warp/Warp+ status


You can find pre-compiled binaries on the releases page.


Run wgcf in a terminal without any arguments to display the help screen. All commands and parameters are documented.

Register new account

Run the following command in a terminal:

wgcf register

The new account will be saved under wgcf-account.toml

Generate WireGuard profile

Run the following command in a terminal:

wgcf generate

The WireGuard profile will be saved under wgcf-profile.conf. For more information on how to use it, please check the official WireGuard Quick Start.

Maximum transmission unit (MTU)

To ensure maximum compatibility, the generated profile will have a MTU of 1280, just like the official Android app. If you are experiencing performance issues, you may be able to improve your speed by increasing this value. For more information, please check #40.

Change license key

If you have an existing Warp+ subscription, for an example on your phone, you can bind the account generated by this tool to your phone’s account, sharing its Warp+ status. Please note that there is a current limit of maximum 5 linked devices active at a time.

⚠️ This device’s private key will be changed!

First, get your Warp+ account license key. To view it on Android:

  1. Open the app
  2. Click on the hamburger menu button on the top-right corner
  3. Navigate to: Account > Key

Edit wgcf-account.toml directly with the new license key and run:

wgcf update

or, using an environment variable:

WGCF_LICENSE_KEY="123412341234" wgcf update

The license will be applied, and a new private key will be created for your account. Regenerate your WireGuard configuration and use the new private key.

Check device status

Run the following command in a terminal:

wgcf status

Verify Warp/Warp+ works

Connect to the WireGuard profile generated by this tool, then run:

wgcf trace

If you look at the last line, it should say warp=on or warp=plus, depending on whether you have Warp or Warp+ respectively.



  • api_tests – Tests for API documentation generation
  • spec_format – OpenAPI3 specification formatter to post-process the spec generated by Optic


This project uses Optic to automatically generate API documentation using the tests defined in api_tests. These tests cover all endpoints used by wgcf. The documentation is exported as an OpenAPI3 specification, which is then used with openapi-generator to generate the Go client API code under wgcf/openapi.

To update the API documentation, install Optic, then run:

api start

Resolve and save all the differences in the Web UI.

To regenerate the Go client API code, install openapi-generator, then run:

bash generate-api.sh

This script supports both Linux and WSL.
