is simply awesome. I've only used it through mullvad before, but today I created my own VPN between my servers and home network. Now that I've done this one time, it would just take a few minutes to repeat the process.

If you haven't tried WireGuard yet, give it a try

@rasmus
Just read about it. First impressions: is it like a do it yourself version of Tor, where you relay your internet connection through other devices?

@ashwinvis No I would say it's more like an alternative to OpenVPN. But you could use it to relay traffic through multiple devices. The selling points for me are that it's seems to be both easier and faster than OpenVPN. But I haven't tried setting up a OpenVPN by myself, just used some VPN services.

It will likely be a part of the Linux kernel in the future. I hope so, and that Android includes it. Than you would have an VPN that drains less battery and can roam between networks.
