Wireguard: A Better VPN

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are essential tools for protecting your online privacy and security. But traditional VPNs can sometimes be slow and bog down your connection. WireGuard is a new, innovative VPN protocol that offers several advantages over traditional options, it has a cool logo too 😎.

WireGuard is much simpler and leaner than older VPN protocols. This means it’s faster and more efficient, using fewer resources and providing a smoother online experience. On top of that, WireGuard prioritizes strong security. It utilizes modern cryptographic techniques to keep your data safe and encrypted.

WireGuard is also easy to set up and use. It’s available on a wide range of platforms, including Linux, macOS, Windows, Android, and iOS. You can quickly configure WireGuard to connect to a VPN server and start protecting your online activities.

I installed Wireguard on my RPi4 powered by DietPi and connected to my selfhosted VPN server in just a few minutes on my Macbook Air and on my Android powered phone (Motorola G32). Check the available clients here, there is one for everyone, even iOS and FreeBSD!. The connection was fast and reliable, with minimal impact on my internet speed. I was impressed by how easy it was to use and how well it performed, I could access my UNRAID server and my Synology with ease.
