What is Psiphon 3?
Psiphon 3 is a circumvention tool from Psiphon Inc. that utilizes VPN, SSH and HTTP Proxy technology to provide you with uncensored access to Internet content. Your Psiphon 3 client will automatically learn about new access points to maximize your chances of bypassing censorship.
Psiphon 3 is designed to provide you with open access to online content.
Connection to the Psiphon server is established when the green icon is displayed. In VPN mode, all of your traffic automatically tunnels through Psiphon 3.
In SSH and SSH+ modes, Psiphon 3 automatically sets the Windows system proxy settings and traffic for applications that respect these settings tunnel through Psiphon 3. These settings are respected by default by all major web browsers.
Furthermore, in SSH and SSH+ modes, Psiphon 3 offers a split tunnel option where international traffic is tunneled through the proxy and domestic traffic is not. Check the “Don’t proxy...” option to enable split tunneling. When this option is on, unproxied domains are reported in the message area.
When you close the program, Psiphon 3 automatically disconnects. You can also click on the icon to toggle the connection.
