OpenVPN app and privacy


  • Cloudron.io team

    Hi Guys,
    Some users are confusing the purpose of theOpenVPN app.

    The OpenVPN app provides a tunnel to channel all the traffic from your devices via the Cloudron. Websites and services that you visit will not see the IP address of your devices but they will see the IP address and possibly the RDNS hostname of your Cloudron.

    I use the OpenVPN app extensively because many of the cafe/wifi networks I work from block traffic or drop random traffic (possibly some misconfigured router or over-enthusiastic application firewall).

    You can check what sort of information can be gathered from your Cloudron's IP address usinghttps://ipleak.net/.

    I have added this note to our docs -https://cloudron.io/documentation/apps/openvpn/#privacy
