Freenet - Censorship-free communications and publishing
Review by on
The lack of privacy is a real issue today. You can't do anything without someone knowing about it. Freenet gives you access to a place where you can do everything anonymously. It is a peer-to-peer platform for accessing the Darkweb, but without all the scary things associated with it. You can browse websites, upload your own sites, chat on forums, share files and much more and the best part is that you can do all these things safely and privately.

Freenet is distributed as a free and open source platform. It is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux and it can be installed in no time. The hardware requirements shouldn't be too much for a modern-day computer. Also, you don't have to install any special tools or services.

Freenet doesn't have an interface of its own, so its controls are loaded in a Google Chrome incognito window. You can bring up Freenet at any time just by clicking its system tray icon. Once you launch the platform, you will find a wide range of options, on a localhost page. They allow you to access directories of websites, known as freesites, blogs, forums, documents, software and more. You can also search for something specific, visit a freesite or download a file by specifying a key, if you have it.

Besides visiting existing freesites, you can also upload your own freesite. Freenet provides you with the necessary tools to do this and the best part is that it can be done anonymously. Additionally, you can monitor all your downloads and uploads and make a wide range of fine tweaks.

Another major feature of Freenet is the possibility to control how it works. The platform provides options for several security levels, from low to maximum. Furthermore, you can create a secret identity, so no one can know who you are. It is also possible to extend and tweak Freenet's functionality through various plugins.

Freenet gives you access to a free and unrestricted corner of the Internet, where your identity will be kept safe at all times.

Freenet lets you access online contents and upload your own while remaining anonymous. It places a wide range of useful tools at your disposal. You can have the platform up and running in no time.

There are no obvious drawbacks to mention.

You can download Freenet free here.
