Outline VPN

Description Updated
Nov 18, 2021

Outline is a tool created by Jigsaw, a technology incubator created by Google, that allows users to easily create their own secure, self-hosted VPN (virtual private network). A trusted Outline VPN helps users more securely avoid internet censorship and surveillance if properly used and managed. Outline itself is free, however it does require the use of a cloud server through a hosting provider such as Digital Ocean or Amazon. Such a server typically costs at least a few US dollars per month, depending upon data usage.


Please contact us for appropriate use cases, timeline for implementation, and approximate cost depending upon planned usage. Even with a trusted VPN, it's important to follow other essential cybersecurity best practices, including those outlined in the Cybersecurity Handbooks for Civil Society Organizations and Political Parties.
