Algo, a self-hosted personal VPN server designed for ease of deployment and security. Algo automatically deploys an on-demand VPN service in the cloud that is not shared with other users, relies on only modern protocols and ciphers, and includes only the minimal software you need. 

Algo is a set of Ansible scripts that simplifies the setup of a personal IPSEC VPN. It contains the most secure defaults available, works with common cloud providers, and does not require client software on most devices.

And best of all the Algo VPN software is open source and Free.  With closed source programs you need to take it on faith that a piece of code works properly, open source allows the code to be tested and verified to work properly. Over time this means open source projects (like the Linux kernel) tend to become more secure with more people testing and fixing the code.

You can read what Romain Dillet from has to say about the Algo VPN Server. “But there’s something refreshing about Algo VPN — it lets you set up disposable VPNs.”. “…I don’t see any reason why you should sign up to a commercial VPN service after playing with Algo VPN. I trust myself for not handing over my data to authorities (duh).”
