Operations Support

The Office of Internet Freedom supports the testing, deployment and management of internet anti-censorship technologies around the world to provide or enhance access to the internet. The tools can bypass internet blocking, filtering and other censorship techniques used by authoritarian governments.

USAGM’s investment in and support of multiple anti-censorship technologies have helped create a new generation of mobile apps that directly challenge and overcome powerful government-enforced firewalls. With these tools, users in tightly controlled information markets are able to access news and information. Our proxy servers, for example, enable more than one billion internet sessions per day.
