Help people circumvent censorship: operate a Snowflake proxy.

Behind Security believes that free speech is the key for individual freedom.

Snowflake is a system that allows people from all over the world to access censored websites and applications. Much like VPNs, the technology allows users to navigate around Internet censorship, ensuring that your online activities remain unnoticed by Internet censors. By cleverly disguising your Internet usage as regular video or voice calls, Snowflake provides a seamless and effective solution to circumvent restrictions and safeguard your online freedom.
