"The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it."
- 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. For more info, see how it works.

what about privacity ?

I think with the current situation is more safe to use the DeepWeb for blocked websites, instead of another cloud/proxy alternative that could track your browsing activity.

Oh how "revolutionary", its a proxy server

Only Apple sheep could (re)invent something and present it as "new"

2 reasons to not use a proxy server (unless its your own for web caching and ad blasting like mine) is the latency, oh and the fact that this mob tell you on the page that while they "dont log everything going through it" (sure)...they will stick a cookie on your PC....

Can I stream porn using Immunicity?

Yes, we have designed it specifically with the upcoming porn blocks in mind. If you find a video streaming site doesn't work, contact us and we'll look into it. Please note that we will be steadily updating our system in the interim to the porn blocks being implemented, therefore not many porn sites will pass through Immunicity at this time.

Honestly if you cant get to the sites on their blocked sites list you really are in a country that needs to have its government removed, you have bigger issues than internet censorship.....im just saying....if your focus is on getting a torrent/porn over every other thing wrong in your society, maybe you need to reevaluate and prioritize...in other words get your hand off it, and use it more wisely

Im half tempted to dump the contents of my squidguard porn blocklist (currently 16MB) into a txt file and submit it to them and ask them to unblock EVERY site listed. Love to see how their server liked that :)

In response to many torrent sites being blocked by ISPs in the UK, dozens of proxies sprang up to ensure that users could still enjoy access. However, ISPs responded to rightsholder requests by blocking proxy sites too. Now a new service has appeared that not only unblocks torrent sites, but also unblocks proxies. It’s called Immunicity – and it’ll crack Cameron’s porn filter too.

With its ongoing efforts to censor the Internet, the UK has been developing quite a reputation recently.

This week prime minister David Cameron’s announcement that ISPs will be instructed to implement a ‘default on’ filtering scheme to deny access to porn and other yet-to-be-defined content has only added to the controversy.

Of course, it’s almost inevitable that when content is blocked there will be those who seek to unblock it. That’s been the case with the High Court-ordered blockades of various torrent sites such as The Pirate Bay, KickassTorrents and, as reported this week, against popular TV torrent site EZTV.

But while dozens of proxy sites have appeared to offer workarounds, those too are slowly being added to the UK’s blocklist. If only there was a proxy service to unblock torrent sites and unblock the proxies too, people have cried.

Well now there is.

Called Immunicity, it’s from the people behind Torrenticity and it’s the first web-based tool to offer both a torrent site and torrent site proxy unblocking service.

“We are angered by the censorship that is happening in the UK and in other countries across the globe, so we got our thinking caps on and decided to do something about it,” Immunicity’s operators told TorrentFreak.

“We saw that there was a gap in the market for anti-censorship services. VPNs are great but they often require a subscription, Tor is great too but it’s very slow and getting it running just to browse a few torrent sites can be cumbersome. Immunicity is different because it is free and implemented in such a way that the end result is seamless access to previously blocked content.”

Immunicity currently unblocks a range of sites listed here. It can unblock censored websites over http and https, route censored sites over its own servers, and will work for users in any country, not just the UK. It’s free to use, there’s no software to install and registration is not required.

“All it needs is for the user to change one setting in their web browser, then when they next attempt to access a blocked site, it will be seamlessly routed via our proxy servers to get unblocked,” Immunicity’s operators explain.

Users of the service have to follow a specific set of instructions depending on the browser they’re using but it’s really simple. In Firefox, for example, users only have to click options, network, settings, click a checkbox, paste in a URL and click OK. To turn the service off again is even more straightforward.

Interestingly, while Immunicity unblocks torrent sites now, it will also unblock porn sites in the future.

“With Cameron’s upcoming porn ‘opt-in’ filter, we intend to include many of the web’s porn sites in our offering. The end result will be seamless access to pornography that would typically be blocked under his plans. When these sites are added, users will not have to update their configuration or do anything else, they can simply start browsing like they did before,” Immunicity explain.

“We are planning on having multiple configurations, ‘all’, ‘torrent sites’, and ‘pornography’, so users can decide which type of site they want to use with Immunicity. Changing will simply be a case of entering a different PAC file. Of course we’ll be adding more and more servers as and when we need to in order to handle all the traffic,” they conclude.

Update: The site’s operators also inform us that they do not log.

LOL! Much ado about nothing. You don't need to 'crack' that filter. It comes with a legitimate pre-cracked option :wtf:

It's called a Goddamn check mark (or lack thereof as the case may be) next to the relevant box. You want an uncensored net as an adult? Just do away with the check (tick) marks on the boxes. Don't nag 'bout a non-event :angry:

Quite contrary to the popular misgivings, it'll democratize the net like never before if implemented right. You want it? You got it! If I don't want it, I wont be forced to endure it! The way it always should have been! Better late than never though ;)

Any body who knows how to uncheck boxes shouldn't really have a problem with this task, methinks :spank: :P
