VPN Gate Overview

VPN Gate Academic Experiment Project is an online service as an academic research at the Graduate School of University of Tsukuba, Japan. The purpose of this research is to expand the knowledge of "Global Distributed Public VPN Relay Servers" .

Why VPN Gate?

You can take three advantages if you use VPN Gate:

You can bypass the government's firewall to browse oversea web sites (e.g. YouTube).
You can camouflage your IP address to hide the source of sending information over Internet.
You can protect use of Wi-Fi with strong encryption.

Unlike existing VPN services, VPN Gate has strong resistance against firewalls.
VPN Gate is free of charge. No user registrations required.


VPN Gate Public VPN Relay Servers

There is a list of Public VPN Relay Servers on the VPN Gate Academic Project Web Site.
Anyone on the Internet can connect a VPN connection to any VPN servers on the list.
No user registrations are required.

Anyone can set up a VPN server for this project, and they can be running packet sniffers or hijacking traffic.

Confused I think you have grossly misunderstood what a VPN does.

I bet there are doing a lot more than that. It's a research project. You are a guinea pig when using it. They need data. They are analysizing your usage patterns every which way they can. So in a nutshell, just like using google.

No, that means they "supposedly" keep the data they tracked from your activity for only 2 weeks.

Since this is University project, these can be setup by funding from government or media companies for "research" purposes? Smilie Easier to track people if they have access to the VPN servers. Smilie
