Can I have a multi user environment on Umbrel Home

I would like to have an Umbrel Home node with two or more separate private environments for a family member only accessible with own password. Is this possible and how would I do this.
Thank you.

Hi @Coddiwompler59

Unfortunately we do not support multi-user access on single devices just yet.
Personally I have a spare instance of Umbrel running at home- I then set-up my housemates with access via tailscale (you can find this on the app-store). From the tailscale admin page you can then set-up access controls to limit access to different apps via their port number.
Please let me know if that interests you and you need any help setting that up.

Thank you for your answer…
Really appreciate that. So I understand with ‘Tailscale’ I can have certain parts of the mini server excluded for others that have the same username and password.
I have to look into that to have a file setup where certain parts of the folders will be locked or others.

I don’t have the Umbrel Home yet, because I am a Nomad, always travelling and not always access to the [Wifi] router to connect it to. But I’m planning to do that soon.

From what I understand, tailscale is kinda like a VPN and allows others direct access to your Umbrel machine over your tailnet network. You can then create rules and limit user access within this network. Hope that clarifies things a little more. Network access controls (ACLs) · Tailscale

Not sure on the best solution for travelling with a Home, but some people make it work!
