  • Guide to accessing this forum from a muslim country
     OP - December 28, 2009, 10:44 PM

    If you're in a muslim country (like I am), especially one which has laws which can get you in trouble if your apostasy can be found out, its best that you don't access this forum directly.

    Instead, you should do a google search for 'free ssl proxy', and pick from one of the many proxies which are available, and use that to access this forum.

    The advantage of using an SSL proxy is that all data being transfered between you and the proxy is encrypted, which means your ISP/government would not be able to see the data which is being sent/received, and will not be able to see the posts you make, etc.

    To know if you're using an SSL proxy or a regular one, check if you're visiting 'http://your-proxy.com' or 'https://your-proxy.com'. The 's' in the https:// means 'secure' and indicates that you're using a secure, SSL proxy.

    Hope this helps and saves someone's head  Afro. Please feel free to suggest other ways to add protection if you know of any.

    In Yemen, every freakin' proxy is blocked. The only way I could use a proxy is download a program called "HotSpot Shield" from a program downloading website, not it's official site.

    I tried MANY MANY of them, each time I found it blocked. The one time I found one which wasn't blocked got blocked after I used it for 5 months. My cousin showed me the program I posted above, and it really kicked ass.

    Feel free to move it if you think this belongs there. Might be a good idea to sticky this as well so it won't get pushed down by newer threads.

    Question: Suppose I am going to use an SSL proxy to browse this website from home (browsing it from work isn't much of an issue), Liberated says the ISP/Gov cannot see the posts I make, which is fantastic and all, but... can they determine what website I am posting in? One wouldn't need to read the content of my posts, just looking at the URL might give me away.

    Thanks in advance.

    No they can't see which sites you visit, because the URL you visit should be encrypted, i.e something like:
    Quote

    instead of
    Quote


    I recommend the Hotspot Shield program infidel suggested though. It sits in the background and automatically encrypts everything so you don't have to go to the proxy site each time. But if you're not too technical and won't know how to install it then just visit the proxy Smiley

    Naerys, I'd also like to recommend you the option of using TOR. I explained a bit in this posting (in short, visit: https://www.torproject.org/torbrowser/ and use Firefox+TOR in a simple bundle).

    Well it seems to be working alright. However I noticed that the website loads more slowly than usual. But it's no big deal. Thanks again Smiley

    Great! Now you're a super-anonymous ex-Muslim chick on ze Internet grin12. But yeah, that's the only downside of TOR. Though, it should be enough for just browsing forums.

    Hi,
    I have just downloaded Hotspot Shield and using it to access this forum and other blocked sites in my country of residence.
    It is bit annoying. Though my concern is that is it safe in terms of privacy? How is your experience
  • Re: Guide to accessing this forum from a muslim country
     Reply #18 - January 04, 2011, 10:48 PM

    I've used HotSpot Shield many times (always gives me a US ip address) to access some US sites that blocked UK.  Absolute rubbish at trying to watch a video with it though, despite them saying it's unlimited bandwidth.

    Try using Scroogle instead of Google. You can get it in a good few languages, and it's safer because none of your searches are recorded and neither is your IP address.

    Hi chaku,

    I'm glad you've contacted us. She might be all alone at her place, but on the Internet she doesn't have to. Smiley

    Using a proxy will not hide your identity at all. It doesn't provide true anonymity. If she's living in an Islamic country where the Internet traffic is analyzed and filtered at a nation-wide level, then you will have to use something better than simple proxies or tunnels. (See countries with Internet censorship). Simple proxies won't work, because all of your requests will go unencrypted through the network wires of the Internet company controlled by the government. You can only avoid the snooping of the government, if you use encrypted and secure connections.

    Not only does the content of the website have to be encrypted, but also the DNS request. A DNS server tells your computer the IP-address associated with the domain name you type in your address bar. It's basically the Internet's telephone book. So, for example, "councilofexmuslims.com" will resolve to "64.91.228.45". Most home computers are set to use the Internet company's DNS server by default. It can be changed relatively easily, but anonymizing software should take care of this anyway.

    AFAIK, there are 2 ways to surf anonymously:

    1. TOR
    2. VPN (Virtual Private Network)

    I think using TOR will be the easiest way for her to browse safely. Here you can download a software bundle that contains Firefox and TOR: https://www.torproject.org/torbrowser/

    It could be that connections to the TOR network are completely blocked in her country. The manual says that there is a way around this (bridge relay addresses), but let's first see if she can connect normally.

    I am not in an Islamic country. But can my parents contact the ISP or log onto the ISP's website or any other site where they can see a history of the websites i visited?

    I delete the browsing history and temp files but is there any other way they can check what websites I visited?

    Unless they have some sort of parental control thing installed. If not, just use google chrome -> incognito and you're good.

    - Incognito/private browsing mode will ensure cookies and history are deleted by your browser when you close it.

    - If you are paranoid and your parents (or elder jerk siblings) are computer savvy, and there is a wireless router that you connect through, and this router logs recent internet history (unlikely), you need to worry about deleting that shit too.

    - If you are worried about websites you visit logging your IP address and finding roughly where you live, you need to use a proxy like TOR.  If you live in a muslim country and there are findies left right and centre, this is the best option. Afro
