In case you want to experience the app version, you can checkout progressive app of Cloudflare.

How to access progressive app of Cloudflare?

1 Like

For that, open Cloudflare community website into your mobile and then you will be prompted for add to home screen or else go to browser settings and choose add to home screen, then go to your mobile home screen and there you can locate the progressive app.

Note that for now, it is available for chrome, Firefox and safari only.

I thought the discussion is for Cloudflare mobile app for managing Domain from Control Panel.

I don’t want to view the website in mobile, I was asking about a mobile app for Cloudflare to change domain settings etc.

@danstock I don’t know that it’s high in our current dev backlog, but I’ll add your request to those customers who were asking for it. I haven’t tried it, but there is a 3rd party app out there which provides some functionality: https://Cloudflaremanager.com/

From your perspective what would be the key features or use cases you’d be looking for from a mobile app to manage Cloudflare?

Hi! I’m the developer of the iOS App Orange Cloud. You can update DNS records, view analytics, configure page rules, and update various site settings using the app.

I’d love for you to give it a try and let me know what you think, here are 5 promo codes (first come first serve):

Just a quick note here: the web application works fairly well from a mobile browser. Not an app, per se, but you can save it to your home screen.

Almost makes me wish I had an iPhone. :wink:

Things like page rules are the main thing I’d like to be able to toggle on and off in a mobile app.

I don’t really want to use a third party app for security reasons as my site deals with high volume high value transactions.

Out of curiosity, what is it about the “toggle” experience in the mobile version of the site that is causing you difficulties? Just slow? Is it hanging on page load?

It’s slow and if you click more than one before its finished it returns an
error, I would also like to be able to group page rules as well so I can
turn on all my “maintenance” rules in one go.

I tested. It is very slow. Why? :frowning_face:

It’s kinda slim pickings on the iOS store for any Cloudflare apps, but I’ve tried them all and the best is probably Cirrus which seems to have the most functionality, and gets updated the most, the others are like no activity in a year or more. Anyways this is what I use instead of having to log in on Cloudflares page on my mobile, the apps tab never works, and DNS now as well throws some TTL error when making any changes in DNS. Also PWA isn’t really an app solution lol.

Super glad that this thread is around. I’m keen to work on some mobile projects, but importantly make sure they’re exactly what you are all looking and hoping for.

With regards to features, what are you looking for? What do you wish you could access from Cloudflare whilst on the move / on mobile?
Are you making use of Cloudflare Registrar? Would seeing what’s available and managing renewing your domains be helpful to do on mobile?

Can you describe where and how you imagine using the app?

Thanks!

I would love to see a Cloudflare app, @syeef. Registrar features may be useful, however the ones I would most like to see are:

  • Some kind of under attack panic button
  • Enabling development mode
  • Updating and adding DNS records
  • Editing, enabling and disabling page rules
  • Access to firewall rules and access rules to be able to enable / disable / edit them.
  • Ability to purge cache
  • Ability to manage Cloudflare Access users, groups etc.

If you do get somewhere with this and want any beta testers (android), I would love to get involved.

Thanks for the information! I’ve got a few follow up questions:

Enabling development mode
Can you explain a bit more about this?

Access to firewall rules and access rules to be able to enable / disable / edit them
Do you use the Firewall rule builder or regex?

Thanks!

(lookout for a few mockups in the coming weeks…)

I mean this setting in the dashboard to temporarily bypass the cache when you are working on your site. The ability to toggle this on and off on a mobile app would be great!

I use the rule builder in the dashboard.

:grin: - sounds great!

Another thing that might be nice to add to the list, @syeef is the ability to purge the Cloudflare cache - I will add it to my original list :grin:

So glad you are interested in doing this - please just let me know about things like beta tests and mockups and I would love to be involved!
