How do I install VNC Viewer for Android without using the Google Play Store with an APK file?


We recommend that you download VNC Viewer for Android from the Google Play Store where possible, so that you can ensure you are downloading the official version and to keep your app automatically up-to-date.

Installing using an APK means you may not receive automatic updates for the VNC Viewer app and all updates will need to be installed manually. You can follow the Release Notes page to be notified of updates.

If you do not have access to the Google Play Store on your Android device, then you can download the APK file for VNC Viewer for Android using the button below.

Download VNC Viewer APK

  SHA-256: 0beb22b9bfe090c0893b25f46d66df9f10b98b4f3fa22a74ca27610e1fb1e9f0

Note: if you see an error message when trying to upgrade an existing version of VNC Viewer, please uninstall it and then try installing using the APK again. This is caused by an upgrade to our app signing certificate so an error should only happen once when trying to upgrade from an earlier version of VNC Viewer signed with the older signing key.

We recommend you do not download RealVNC software from unofficial sources.

Please ensure that you only download RealVNC software from the RealVNC website, the App Store, the Google Play Store or the RealVNC Help Center.
