Unlimited Internet Access Psiphon is a temporary solution from developer Psiphon Inc. which uses VPN, SSH and HTTP proxy technology so you have uncensored access to all internet content. As you browse, the client learns about new access points, so you can bypass blocks with freedom of browsing. The Internet is based on the premise of free access to information. Today, many people have limited access to the Internet for one reason or another. This is often due to employer or government restrictions. With Psiphon for Windows, you can access the content you want without restrictions. Bypass censorship, be it from your state, company or school Download and use Psiphon It’s easy to download this Psiphon to your computer and run it on your device. You should receive a security prompt. Once you choose to run the client, it will automatically connect. Users have the option to choose their preferred tunnel mode. If the connection icon stops spinning and shows a green icon, it means your connection has been established. When you are in SSH and SSH + mode, the program automatically configures Windows system proxy settings that can be adhered to by all major web browsers. There is also a split tunnel option, where international traffic is tunneled through the proxy and domestic traffic is not. You need to check the option that says you don’t want a proxy for an internal website. When you do this, Psiphon will report all non-specialized domains in the message box. Connecting to a server The interface correctly displays the status of your connection, but your new IP address is not marked. You can choose a server from more than 20 different regions, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Spain, Switzerland, India and Canada. A new browser window will then appear to show you your new IP address. The speed depends on your relationship and you may want to experiment with a few to find the right one. It’s fast enough for seamless web browsing and content access. You can watch videos, but don’t expect streaming at 1080p or higher. Open source A wonderful quality of this software is that it is open source, which means that the original source code is freely available and can be redistributed and modified. This helps increase transparency, which is a rarity in the VPN industry. Psiphon is regularly updated and subject to peer review. Privacy and security All your data passing through Psiphon is encrypted, but the software is not intended for anti-surveillance. Your ISP cannot see the content of your internet traffic, such as web pages you visit, chat messages or your uploads. Psiphon does not prevent your browsing history and cookies from being stored on your computer, and depending on the mode you are using, not all traffic is tunneled. Since this service is free, they sell some of your data to third parties to deliver advertising within the customer. Various Problems Because downloading Psiphon from your computer changes the proxy settings on your computer when it connects, it must be reset to its original state when turned off. Unfortunately, sometimes you don’t do it correctly which will later lead to a problem with the internet connectionwith your device. Users must manually adjust their proxy settings. It is important to note that while it is completely free to download Psiphon, it is illegal in many countries. Fortunately, the developers have added features to disguise the presence of users and their identities. This should work in theory, but it is not a guarantee. Alternatives Download Psiphon Pro, ad-supported version of the software to subscribe to and maintain the network. This ensures a further optimized use of the program.
