You access internet freely without restrictions by using Psiphon VPN app. This app may bypass censorship on your network provider and also serve as additional security when you’re on a public connection. This works on older Android OS like Gingerbread, ICS, Jellybean and Kitkat. With its latest release under version 68 it now supports Lollipop mobile operating system. You can also use Psiphon on your desktop and laptop as it supports Windows OS.

Stats tab, you can see number hours or minutes you are connected with Psiphon. It also shows sent and received data with graphical status. Other details like compressed sent and received data also takes place on this tab for your monitoring.
Options tab, here you can select available servers with respective country. On my observation, when you select a country Psiphon will automatically connect to available server on selected country. On following details below, you are given an option to tunnel whole device which requires root or Android 4.0+ operating system. You are also given an option to force root tunnel whole device method. Another option is the “Connect through an HTTP Proxy” where choices are “Use system network settings” or you can manually input the host address and port. More options button is for notification where you can tweak it the way you want.
Logs tab, this shows status from the start Psiphon connects to the internet. It also shows current network you are using, server used and services connected (SSH, SOCKS, HTTP Proxy, VPN and ports like 1080 or 8080)

On my test with Psiphon over mobile network, it works like a trick, hide you current location while you are browsing, compresses data usage and more. Don’t get confuse if you’re not redirected to a certain sites domain extension when you are using this app.
