Free pricing plans and discounts

For an overview of Tailscale’s pricing plans, including paid plans, see Pricing.

Personal plan

The Personal plan allows for 3 free users in a single Tailscale network, known as a tailnet. You can also share devices with other users with node sharing. For more information on what is included in the Personal plan, see the Pricing page.

A tailnet can only have users in the same domain. To have multiple users in a tailnet, you need to have a custom domain that is not shared with other unaffiliated users, unlike Gmail which has the @gmail.com domain that is used by unaffiliated users.

Community on GitHub

Your GitHub organization can use Tailscale for free if you’re using it for an open source project which has an OSI license.

Consider using Tailscale to:

  • Access a shared build tool
  • Access an internal test server for a given platform
  • Share project resources with other developers

To use this pricing plan, you must be using GitHub for authentication. You also need to be an Owner or Admin to update your plan. To use Community on GitHub, contact support.

Can I subscribe to the Community on GitHub plan from a non-GitHub identity provider?

Right now, this isn’t possible because of technical limitations. In the future, if we support multi-user tailnets on other auth providers without a custom domain, we might make this plan more widely available.

Charities, not-for-profit organizations, and educational institutions

Charities, not-for-profit organizations, and educational institutions receive a 50% discount off of list prices. First, choose a plan in the Billing page of the admin console, then contact support to get this discount. Unsure? Feel free to reach out and ask.

For information about whether Tailscale will collect sales tax if you are receiving a discount, see Sales tax.
