Open-source circumvention tool Psiphon combines a virtual private network with a secure shell and hypertext transfer protocol technology. Together, they give Psiphon unlimited access to websites and applications. It does not have bandwidth limits or speed limits so you can use this to stream content geographically restricted in high definition. Although it has a VPN feature, Psiphon does not promise that your data will not be shared with third-party applications. They are clear with users that will share your data, cookies and web beacons to deliver advertising on varying platforms. Psiphon simply is a way to access content outside of your area.

Passable circumvention tool

Psiphon does not require registration, allowing you to immediately use it. It will automatically connect to the fastest server out of twenty regions. These include the United States, United Kingdom, Spain, Switzerland, Canada, and India. You can also select the region that you want to access. Once you’ve selected your area, your new IP address will be displayed on the screen.

There is also a catch when bypassing censorship. You will not be able to access the content you want if the region you chose is also banned from seeing this content. You will not be able to find out if it is blocked until you have tried entering the website, platform or application. In this instance, you can utilize Psiphon’s open-source code. This will include transporting modes, setting local proxy ports and splitting the VPN tunnel. If you simply need a way to get around internet restrictions, you can use Psiphon on Windows devices running Windows XP or older.
