Cupcake empowers you to assist censored internet users all over the world by turning your web browser into a pathway to the Tor network. Important Note: if you are being censored, Cupcake cannot help you on its own. Please install the full Tor Browser Bundle. When the censor has blocked direct access to the Tor network for a user, you can help. Installing Cupcake makes your browser into a flash proxy -- a temporary Tor bridge. After connecting with the censored user, your bridge allows communication between the user and the Tor relay, successfully circumventing the censor. Congratulations! You are a champion of internet freedom around the world! Don't worry about your IP address being blamed for the user's requests. The source of traffic will look like the IP address of a Tor exit relay, not yours. This protects both you and the censored individual. -------------------- If you are unfamiliar with Tor, visit https://torproject.org to learn more. In short, Tor is a free service that protects privacy online. It allows users to avoid network surveillance, which threatens their privacy and freedom. Flash proxy was created by David Fifield and was integral to this project. More information can be found at http://crypto.stanford.edu/flashproxy/. Cupcake's development was partly supported by a grant from the Open Tech Fund. -------------------- Visit us at http://cupcakebridge.com!
