Inviting others to your network

Tailscale networks are based on your email address domain name.

If you signed up as [email protected], only users with an @example.com email address are able to access your network. Users who sign up with an @example.com address will automatically be added to your network. For most companies this makes setup easy, since your whole team can sign up with their existing work email address.

To invite others to your Tailscale network, ask them to sign up with your team’s email address at tailscale.com/start.

How can I invite someone with a different email domain?

For now, every user needs an email address with the same domain.

If you’d like to invite other members to your network, sign up for a new account using an email address domain that your whole team shares (see the example at the beginning of the article).

How can I invite someone if I signed up with a Gmail address or a GitHub personal account?

Signups using shared email hosts such as @gmail.com are limited to the Personal plan, and, because of technical limitations, can currently only have one user. We plan to improve this in the future.

We recommend you check out our node sharing feature instead that lets you securely share your individual nodes with other Tailscale networks.

If you need to invite other members to your network, you will have to sign up for a new account using an email address domain that your whole team shares.

We know not all teams have shared email address domains. We’re building features to let families, friends, contractors, and companies with multiple domains to connect their devices. In the meantime, check out machine sharing. Feel free to contact us if you need any help.
