Approve peers

The peer approval feature enhances network security by requiring manual administrator approval before a device can join the NetBird network. This feature is handy when network administrators want to ensure access is restricted only to trusted, corporate-managed devices.

When enabled, devices connect to the management service without network access to other resources. Administrators then can assess whether the peer is eligible to join the network.

Enable peer approval

To enable peer approval, navigate to Settings » Authentication and enable 'Peer approval'.


Approve peer

To approve a peer, navigate to the peers tab and click the Approve button on the right side of the peers table.


Automate peer approval with EDR integrations

NetBird integrates with popular EDR solutions like CrowdStrike to automate peer approval and allow only trusted devices to join the network. Check the EDR integrations guide for more information on how to enable this feature.
