If use Tailscale on my work device, can co-workers see my personal devices?

Tailscale only connects you to other devices logged in to the same Tailscale network. If your co-workers don’t use Tailscale or use a different Tailscale network, then no, they can’t see anything.

If you and your co-workers use the same network, your devices may be visible and connectable by them. You can prevent co-workers from connecting to you using our “Block incoming connections” feature, or configure ACLs and security policies to restrict access.

Only devices that are permitted access through ACLs can be seen in your device list. We call this restriction “netmap trimming.” It keeps larger networks more manageable, and improves privacy and security.
