(freedom)Are you trapped behind a firewall or a filtering web proxy and cannot access some or many web pages or use an application you would like to use or play a game you would like to play? Is your Internet connection being censored and you would like to stick censorship where the sun doesn’t shine? Would you prefer to stay anonymous, that your IP address is not logged with every access to someone’s web page? Then look no further, you’ve found the solution!
The Your Freedom services makes accessible what is unaccessible to you, and it hides your network address from those who don’t need to know. Just download our client application and install or just run it on your PC; it turns your own PC into an uncensored, anonymous web proxy and an uncensored, anonymous SOCKS proxy that your applications can use, and if that’s not enough it can even get you connected to the Internet just as if you were using an unrestricted DSL or cable connection — just like the firewall suddenly went boom! You can even make your PC accessible from the Internet if you like. Nearly all applications work with Your Freedom, and so far no-one has managed to block our service completely and permanently without blocking your Internet access entirely.
Every day, more than 10,000 people in over 160 countries use our service, some because their government would rather not have them exercise their human rights, some because their school or university feels they are not mature enough to decide for themselves whether playing the odd game interferes with their studies or not, others because they don’t want traceable IP addresses in every log file. There are probably as many good reasons to use Your Freedom as there are restrictive firewalls in the world!
Your first step to an unrestricted Internet access is to register on this web page — all you need to provide is a contactable email address and a username and a password, nothing else is required. Then download the client application (available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and everything else that can run Java apps, and Android) and run it — the wizard will guide you through configuring it properly. Then configure your applications to use your own PC as web or SOCKS proxy or use our transparent OpenVPN mode.
If you do not need Your Freedom’s filter avoidance capabilities, you can simply use our service through PPTP. No client software needed. Check out our PPTP how to. PPTP works well with games!
WILL YOUR FREEDOM GET ME A FREE INTERNET CONNECTION?
Probably yes, particularly if you use DNS tunneling mode. You may be able to get a working mobile phone connection when the provider does not want it to be working (no credit, special APNs, etc.), and you may be able to use wireless hotspots without paying for the usage. Your Freedom cannot differentiate between true censorship and merely commercial interests; if there is a way out, Your Freedom will find it and use it.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
A rudimentary service is available for free. It will provide a bit more bandwidth than a modem connection and up to 2 hours of usage per day (up to 5 hours per week), and will probably be enough for all casual users — it’s certainly enough to visit blocked web pages and join chats, and if it suits your needs you are welcome to use it as much as you like.
For those who want more, upgrade packages are available. Please check out our Account page for details. There are also upgrade vouchers available for those who don’t want time based upgrades. Your bought upgrades and vouchers keep this service alive, so please consider to pay!

Notice the proxy settings for Your freedom. You can connect using Socks 4/5 or normal Web proxy to connect to Your freedom servers.
In your browser change your proxy settings to 127.0.0.1: 8080. I used Socks 4/5 to configure my torrent client to connect to Your-freedom server. Socks 4/5 setting would be : 127.0.0.1:1080.
Click on save exit and on the main screen of your-freedom, click on start connection. If you have done everything as mentioned above, you will see a screen like this:
