All ngrok users can now claim one static domain for free. With your free static domain, you no longer need to worry about broken links caused by agent restarts, or updating webhook providers / mobile apps with new URLs.
HashiCorp Consul provides a scalable and highly resilient platform for managing traffic across microservices. When paired with ngrok, Consul provides a robust and secure way for service-to-service communication within a Kubernetes cluster to communicate, while ngrok can seamlessly and securely provide public ingress to those services.
Adding auth to applications seems easy at the surface, but it can quickly become a source of frustration once you need to deliver a production-grade solution with features for end-users — i.e. self-service sign-ups, account recovery, and social auth for multiple platforms — and for security — i.e. audit trail, live session management, and authorization policies. In this post, I'll integrate ngrok to Auth0 and solve for these challenges.
Today, we’re excited to announce ngrok’s integration with Datadog Logs. You can now send logs of your ngrok traffic to Datadog with just a few clicks. Observability is a key requirement for delivering production apps. This release expands upon our logging integrations to include Datadog Logs alongside AWS CloudWatch Logs, AWS Kinesis, and AWS Firehose.
PagerDuty provides a shared secret with their webhooks so consumers can ensure the event's authenticity. Normally, verifying this secret requires a multiple step process implemented through your application code. This post will show how you can easily validate PagerDuty webhooks without making any changes to your code using ngrok's webhook verification feature.
We’re excited to announce the release of new ngrok domains for free and paid users. These new domains automatically route your traffic to the nearest available region on the ngrok Global Network, providing you and your users with faster speeds and a smoother experience.
Today, we're excited to announce ngrok-rs, our native and idiomatic crate for embedding secure ingress directly into your Rust applications. If you’ve used ngrok before, you can think of ngrok-rs as the ngrok agent packaged as a Rust crate.

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to play with Zoom Apps. Before I dug in, I assumed Zoom would give an app a little information about an active or scheduled meeting, a little more on the user profile, let you manipulate a meeting, and call it a platform. Frankly, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
The ESP32 and ESP8266 microcontrollers are powerful. Using their built-in features, these microcontrollers can wirelessly operate robotics, motors, or sensors from simple web applications. Luckily, putting them online securely is easier than ever with ngrok.
The last month has been busy at ngrok! We’re tremendously proud to announce we’ve raised $50M in funding to grow ngrok’s API-first ingress as a service platform for developers. We’ve also focused on improving security with Dashboard SSO and Identity-Aware Ingress, developer experience with new documentation, and contribute to the community with webhook security and an open source firewall toolset for go
Today, ngrok is growing faster than ever. To meet that increasing demand, we’re thrilled to announce our first-ever fundraising round of $50 million. We’ve raised this round to scale ngrok’s business across the board and to dramatically increase our investment in delivering new products for ngrok developers.
Today, we are adding additional visibility for users logging into your application through our edge. Now you can see your application users in the ngrok dashboard and view their identity details. In this blog, I'll explain why this feature is a huge win for security and how you can take advantage of it today.
Webhooks are the foundation of modern API development. They enable us to react to changes in our systems, an incoming text message, a successful payment, or that latest pull request no matter our stack. While webhooks are universal in concept, they are unstandardized API contracts with few organizations paying attention to their design, security controls, and overall operational experience.
This month, we focused in two areas you asked for (a lot) and filled in some other bits and bytes to give you a hand: productivity features to launch your tunnels quickly with style and security features so you use ngrok in your org with IT and security approval.
