Internet censorship has been increasing steadily for the last decade.

Outline enables anyone to access the free and open internet more safely by running their own VPN. Running your own VPN server through Outline makes accessing the internet safer and establishes a connection that is harder to block.

Why use a VPN?

VPNs are useful for keeping your communications private and allow you to maintain access to the open internet. But with most VPN providers you don’t always know who controls the VPN and who has access to your data.

Creating your own VPN server used to be a complicated process—until now.

Why Outline?

Outline lets anyone create, run, and share access to their own VPN. Outline is designed to be resistant to blocking. It lets you control your server setup, including where your server is located. Outline uses transparent technology, is fully open source, and has been audited by two security firms to make sure its technology remains state-of-the-art and secure.

Blocking Resistant

Outline is resistant to some of the most sophisticated forms of blocking including DNS, content, and IP blocking. Users report that Outline works even when other popular VPNs are blocked or fail to connect.


Share access to your Outline server easily right from the Outline manager. Create unique access keys from the Manager desktop application and share with your trusted network via email or social media. With Outline, you can support hundreds of users by giving them access to your server, or just share access with your close contacts.


Outline gives you control over how you access the internet by giving you control over your own server. It lets you decide where your server is located and who has access to it. The Outline Manager allows you to set data limits for each user accessing your server via the Client App.
