Tailscale has a Free plan that includes nearly everything Tailscale has to offer for up to 100 devices, and up to 3 provisioned users.
Tailscale will charge you at the end of each month for all active users on your account during that time period. Tailscale will automatically apply a credit for 3 monthly active users to the Starter and Premium plan. For example, if you have 10 active users in a month then you will only be billed for 7 of them.
Our Free plan offers the ability to add a maximum of 100 devices. However for our Starter and Premium plans the total number of allowed devices increases as the number of provisioned users on the network increases. Please note that device limits are pooled.
For example, if you’re on the Starter plan and have a 150 device limit, one user can have 30 provisioned devices and the remaining four users can each have five provisioned devices, leaving a pool of 100 devices for future users. Devices shared with you as a user don’t count towards your limit.
ACLs allow your organization to adopt one of the core tenets of Zero Trust networking: least privileged access. Before joining your tailnet every user is authenticated using an identity provider (IdP) such as Okta, Entra ID, or GitHub. Organizations on certain plans can choose to segment their users into roles and groups (e.g. developer and engineering org) to apply policies at scale. ACL tags, the last piece to this puzzle, allow you to assign an identity to your devices. Once these pieces are in place, your teams can enforce least privilege access across your organization’s private network.
