VPC IP address range and privacy

Posted April 29, 2020 1.4k views

Are the VPC IP address range allocated now truly private now? i.e. no other droplets from another account can see the traffic into my account’s VPC private IP range?

I know that previous private IP networking was effectively shared.

Yes. VPC networks are completely isolated from both other customers and other VPCs on your own account. See here for more details:

It’s also worth pointing out that DigitalOcean private networks provided account level isolation since July 18, 2018. The big changes with the release of VPCs are:

  • You can create multiple VPCs that are isolated from each other
  • You can define the IP range for your VPCs yourself
