Ok I wanted to setup a VPN for my school class, but I have a question: If i set up a VPN on my droplet and if I share it with some people, who’ll be responsible for the traffic? Me or the users of this VPN?

I don’t want to be charged of something I didn’t do.

Thank you fur upcomming replies.

Hi @carrotnet

You will be responsible in the eyes of DigitalOcean, but in the eye of the law, you might be able to show connection logs, which could free you of charge, but you would still be responsible until you have proven that.
