Freenet allows you to browse content that is available on the censorship-resistant Freenet network. When used correctly, it even allows you to remain anonymous while doing so. Freenet cannot help you to hide your IP when visiting regular internet websites. > 2. Does freenet encrypt and hide my traffic from my ISP? Yes, but only the contents of your Freenet traffic. Freenet does not influence or hide traffic caused by other applications. If you need that, you are looking for a VPN service. > 3. Does freenet cover every application on my machine, or only the web browser window it runs in? As you should understand now, Freenet's scope is limited to in-Freenet content such as Freenet websites (freesites). > 4. Is freenet blockable by my ISP? Yes, but it cannot be done easily. Freenet takes reasonable precautions against being identified and blocked. If you are using Freenet in opennet mode (connect to strangers) your ISP can block your connections if they are determined to do so, but it will take considerable efforts. In darknet mode (connect to friends only), blocking Freenet connections is extremely hard. Kind regards, Bert
