– John Gilmore

Censorship is dangerous. It oppresses citizens and harms free speech.

We’re living in a nanny state. In modern Britain, the government decides what websites we can and can’t see. It is the same in many other countries. We think this is unacceptable, which is why we started Immunicity.

Once you configure your browser, requests to blocked websites will be seamlessly routed via Immunicity servers to get unblocked. All other requests will go directly to their destination, without being routed through our servers.

Immunicity is completely free to use, it doesn’t require any registration or any software to be installed. You can turn it on and off easily by reversing the setting change.

Either way, if you really want to keep your activity private, your best bet involves routing your BitTorrent connection through an external service.

BTGuard is a dead simple BT-focused proxy server and encryption service, and it’s my service of choice. Below, I’ll explain what it does, how it works, and how to set it up to privatize and anonymous your BT traffic.
