Umbrel is an OS for running a personal server in your home. Self-host open source apps like Nextcloud, Bitcoin node, and more.
Get the convenience of cloud, without giving up your data.
Or install on any Ubuntu or Debian system:
All of our interactions on the internet today are mediated by a few companies who offer “free” services in exchange for storing our data on their servers to spy on us.
Running a personal server fundamentally changes that. You and your family’s photos, videos, files, notes, passwords — everything, have nothing to do with someone else’s computer. They’re a part of your private life, and now they can all be stored by you, on your personal server.
An entirely self-hosted Google Drive replacement — store your documents, calendar, contacts, photos and videos on your Umbrel with Nextcloud instead of Google’s servers.
Privately host, browse, organize, and share your photo and video collection with PhotoPrism, and say goodbye to uploading your visual memories to the “cloud”.
Run your own node and achieve unparalleled privacy by connecting your wallet directly to your Bitcoin node. This ensures that your wallet company can’t spy on your transactions, or worse — lie to you.
Not only that, transacting with your Bitcoin node also helps keep the Bitcoin network decentralized; win-win!
Lightning Network allows ultra cheap and almost instant Bitcoin transactions. By running a Lightning node, you can not only self-custody your Bitcoin on Lightning, but also earn sats by routing payments on the network.
Yes, the entire network — not just browsers. No more having ads track you and your family everywhere on the internet.
