The molecule of the title compound, C4H4IN3, has crystallographic mirror plane symmetry. In the crystal, the molecules are connected through N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds into polymeric tapes extended along the a axis, which are typical of 2-aminopyrimidines. Each molecule acts as a double donor and a double acceptor in the hydrogen bonding.
