Psiphon VPN is a tool that combines a secure combination of VPN, SSH and HTTP proxies to provide its users completely anonymity while browsing the internet. On top of providing anonymity, it also leaps over any restriction the ISP or the government might have imposed on its users. Psiphon 3 for PC and Psiphon Pro for android phones are available for free to use.
Psiphon VPN is designed by Psiphon, Inc an it operates systems and smart technologies that bypass the content filtering systems imposed by the government for censorship on the internet. By no means we are evoking the illelgal use of the internet or going against any government rules.
We respect the government imposed censorship on certain content as much as the right of a user to access the internet without any filters and restrictions. Internet was, is and should be free for everyone and so is the content on the internet. That is the sole meaning of the internet, so any kinds of censorship on the internet would be against our rights.
Psiphon 3 , Psiphon VPN and Psiphon for android help all its users achieve that.
Lets see how to setup Psiphon For PC and Psiphon VPN for your android devices.
