We monitor and challenge internet censorship in China


FreeBrowser StartPage We have directed Chinese internet users more than 13 million times to censored news stories about government corruption, politics, scandals and other "sensitive" information.

FreeWeChat No other website restores and republishes censored information from WeChat, China's ubiquitous and most popular application. Our dataset grows larger each and every day and provides a real-time and accurate litmus test of the information that the Chinese authorities find most threatening.

FreeWeibo We mimic the look and feel of the real Weibo website, but instead of presenting a "harmonized" version of the popular social media network, we restore and integrate censored and deleted posts (currently numbering more than 300,000), so that Chinese can access a real-time view of the real discussions that are taking place online in China. Circumvention Central No other website tests the speed and stability of free and paid circumvention tools from China. We provide an unbiased, data-driven view of what is working and what is not so that Chinese can make informed decisions when choosing a circumvention tool. GreatFire Analyzer No other website has accumulated as much data as we have around the blocking of websites and keywords. We make ourselves available to the media and have been quoted in thousands of news
