Being concerned about bypassing censorship or just encrypting your network traffic? Well, then Psiphon 3 is a good and reliable software that will allow you to connect to many websites no matter where you live.

What is Psiphon 3?

Psiphon is a free and open-source Internet censorship circumvention tool launched in 2008 that features a combination of secure communication and obfuscation technologies. Way more advanced and versatile than VPNs, it has been designed for people who genuinely face censorship issues and want to strengthen their online anonymity.

What are the key features of Psiphon 3?

  • Build to bypass: Psiphon technology was designed to bypass filtering at any level (ISP, institutions, international gateway, etc.) and censorship. It uses techniques to make your encrypted traffic look like any other traffic and establish a connection using several different communication protocols such as VPN, SSH, and HTTP proxy technologies. Psiphon is good at adapting its behaviors depending on the network changes.
  • More efficient than VPNs: VPNs are created for normal network conditions. So even though your traffic is encrypted, it can be elementary for anyone to know that you’re using a VPN and block your connections.
  • Security audits: Psiphon code is open-source, which means anyone can review it. Moreover, Psiphon inc performs both internal and external code audits.
  • Suitable for all users: Psiphon has been designed to be straightforward to use for all users. All you have to do is start Psiphon 3, which will take care of finding the necessary server.
  • Protect yourself: Because Psiphon does more than a VPN, you can also use it to encrypt your connection (when you connect to a public Wifi hotspot, etc.), even if you’re not concerned about censorship.
  • Lots of servers: You can choose over 15 countries. Depending on your location, it will change your connection bandwidth.
