Jigsaw, the human rights–focused tech incubator owned by Alphabet, is now offering open-source VPN software that aims to grant a greater degree of user privacy by placing more control in users’ hands, Wired reports. Once installed on a user’s server, Jigsaw’s Outline software shelters data from third-party access and puts the user in control of the data. Santiago Andrigo, Jigsaw’s product manager who led Outline’s development, said, "The core of the product is that people can run their own VPN," adding, "You get the reassurance that no one else has your data, and you can rest easier in that knowledge." Outline software is said to be simple enough that it can be set up within minutes.
