Psiphon is a fast and safe way to browse the internet from anywhere free of government censorship and corporate tracking.

Each day millions of people around the world have to suffer under various kinds of internet censorship; from oppressive regimes trying to control the access to information to schools and corporations preventing you from going where you want and spying on your activities, PsiPhon can help!

How does it work? The PsiPhon app creates a secure tunnel between your device and secure PsiPhon servers spread throughout the world. These are “double blind terminals”, meaning that you don’t know who you’re connecting to and the server you’re connecting to doesn’t know you either. This is by far the best way to keep both client and host safe.

Once you've been connected to the server on the other side, you'll have completely free and uncensored anonymous access to the web, regardless of where you’re located. You’ll still be able to make a homepage, add bookmarks, sign into accounts and everything else that you’d usually do in any other browser like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc.

And it’s all for free!

It’s important to point out that the chief purpose of this app is to defeat censorship, so it might not have all the bells and whistles that other free web browsers have. If you need a browser that can bypass geolocation blocks, government, corporate or school censorship, this is definitely a must-have tool.

It’s very, very important for us to point out that usage of PsiPhon in certain countries may be a crime. Bypassing government censorship by means of proxies of VPN access with apps like PsiPhon may be punishable by a fine, jail time, or worse. Check the laws of your country and the terms of service of your internet provider before you install this app just to stay safe.

Aside from some legislative issues, PsiPhon is an excellent way to circumvent censorship in all its forms! If you want to keep your internet activities private and communicate without worry of information being traced back to you, this is definitely worth checking out.
