어떤 사용자 정보가 Psiphon에게 수집되나요?

From time to time Psiphon may have to record additional information in order to resolve a problem with our service. When this occurs, we will add an entry to the Privacy Bulletin describing what was recorded, how long it was kept, and why.

Psiphon Websites

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on some of our websites to collect information about usage. The information collected by Google Analytics will only be used for statistical analysis related to your browsing behaviour on this specific site. The information we obtain from Google Analytics is not personally identifying, nor is it combined with information from other sources to create personally identifying information.

Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the site, but this cookie cannot be used by anyone except Google, and the data collected cannot be altered or retrieved by services from other domains.

Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You may choose to opt out by turning off cookies in the preferences settings in your web browser.

저장소 접근 로깅

We use Amazon S3 to store assets such as website files and Psiphon server discovery lists. We sometimes enable logging of downloads of these files. Analyzing these logs helps us to answer questions like "how many users are starting but not completing the download of the server discovery list?", "how is the downloaded data split between website assets and server discovery?", and "is an attacker making a denial-of-service attempt against our websites?"

S3 bucket access logs contain IP addresses, user agents, and timestamps. These logs are stored in S3 itself, so Amazon has access to these logs. (However, Amazon already serves the files, so they can already access this information.) Psiphon developers will download the logs, aggregate and analyze the data, and then delete the logs. Raw data will be kept only long enough to aggregate it and will not be shared with third parties.

Psiphon 서버들

우리는 Psiphon 얼마나 잘 작동하는지, 어떤 사이트가 인기있는지, 그리고 어떤 전파 전략이 효과적인지를 확인하기 위해 다음 데이터를 수집 합니다. 이 정보는 파트너와 공유되며, 예를 들어 Psiphon 통해 및 어떤 국가에서 파트너의 사이트를 얼마나 자주 방문했는지 등이 공유됩니다.

  • 클라이언트 다운로드 링크를 이메일로 요청한 횟수
  • 업그레이드의 개수
  • 각 프로토콜이 종종 사용되었으며 문제가 발생한 후 오류 코드
  • 새로운 서버가 발견되는 빈도
  • 세션 수와 세션의 지속 시간
  • Total bytes transferred and bytes transferred for some specific domains
  • 클라이언트 플랫폼 (단순화 운영체제 목록; e.g., 지워진 브라우저 유저 에이전트가 아닌)

User IP addresses are not collected by Psiphon servers in the normal course of operation. Psiphon does not require user accounts, so, by default, there is no collection of email addresses, usernames, or passwords.

이벤트 로그는 타임 스탬프, 지역 코드 (국가 및 도시) 및 식별 할 수없는 특성을 포함한 스폰서 ID(사용되는 Psiphon 클라이언트 빌드에 의해 결정), 클라이언트 버전 및 프로토콜 유형을 포함합니다. 페이지 뷰가 기록되기 전에 시간 및 / 또는 세션으로 집계됩니다.

모든 날짜, 스폰서, 지역 통계는 스폰서와 공유됩니다.

User VPN Data

Why should you care?

When using a VPN or proxy you should be concerned about what the provider can see in your data, collect from it, and do to it. For some web and email connections, it is theoretically possible for a VPN to see, collect, and modify the contents.

What does Psiphon do with your VPN data?

Psiphon looks at your data only to the degree necessary to collect statistics about the usage of our system. We record the total bytes transferred for a user connection, as well as the bytes transferred for some specific domains. These statistics are discarded after 60 days.

Psiphon does not inspect or record full URLs (only domain names), and does not further inspect your data. Psiphon does not modify your data as it passes through the VPN.

Even this coarse data would be difficult to link back to you, since we immediately convert your IP address to geographical info and then discard the IP. Nor is any other identifying information stored.

Why does Psiphon need these statistics?

This data is used by us to determine how our network is being used. This allows us to do things like:

  • Estimate future costs: The huge amount of user data we transfer each month is a major factor in our costs. It is vital for us to see and understand usage fluctuations.
  • Optimize for traffic types: Video streaming has different network requirements than web browsing does, which is different than chat, which is different than voice, and so on. Statistics about the number of bytes transferred for some major media providers helps us to understand how to provide the best experience to our users.
  • Determine the nature of major censorship events: Sites and services often get blocked suddenly and without warning, which can lead to huge variations in regional usage of Psiphon. For example, we had up to 20x surges in usage within a day when Brazil blocked WhatsApp or Turkey blocked social media.
  • Understand who we need to help: Some sites and services will never get blocked anywhere, some will always be blocked in certain countries, and some will occasionally be blocked in some countries. To make sure that our users are able to communicate and learn freely, we need to understand these patterns, see who is affected, and work with partners to make sure their services work best with Psiphon.

Who does Psiphon share these statistics with?

When sharing with third parties, Psiphon only ever provides coarse, aggregate domain-bytes statistics. We never share per-session information or any other possibly-identifying information.

This sharing is typically done with services or organizations we collaborate with — as we did with DW a few years ago. These statistics help us and them answer questions like, “how many bytes were transferred through Psiphon for DW.com to all users in Iran in April?”

Again, we specifically do not give detailed or potentially user-identifying information to partners or any other third parties.


The PsiCash system only collects information necessary for the functioning of the system, monitoring the health of the system, and ensuring the security of the system.

The PsiCash server stores per-user information to allow for operation of the system, including:

  • generated user access tokens
  • balance
  • last activity timestamp
  • PsiCash earning history, including what the actions the rewards were granted for
  • PsiCash spending history, including what purchases were made

In the user's web browser, some data is stored to allow for earning rewards and making purchases. This data includes:

  • generated user access tokens
  • when a PsiCash reward is allowed to be claimed again

For monitoring system health and security, system activity data is collected and aggregated. This data includes:

  • user country
  • balance
  • user agent string
  • client version
  • PsiCash earning and spending details

Individual user data is never shared with third parties. Coarse aggregate statistics may be shared, but never in a form that can possibly identify users.

이메일 답변

When you send an email request to our email auto-responder server, we are able to see your email address. While your email is being processed it is saved to the email server's disk, and it is deleted as soon as it is processed (usually in a few seconds). We do not allow your email address to be written to the system's log file.

Our email auto-responder server is hosted in the Amazon EC2 cloud. We send two email responses to every request, and for one of those responses we use Amazon SES. This means that Amazon is able to see the email you send and our response to you.

우리는 각각의 이메일을 받았을 때, 다음의 정보를 저장합니다:

  • 날짜와 시간 이메일 요청을 받았습니다.
  • 날짜와 시간 이메일 요청에 대해 답변이 달렸습니다.
  • 이메일의 크기.
  • The mail server the email request came from. (The three least specific parts of the domain name. For example, ne1.example.com, but not web120113.mail.ne1.example.com.)

If we need to diagnose a problem, we may enable full mail server logging for a short amount of time. If you send an email during that time, your email address will be written to the system log. Those logs are deleted after one week.

앱 스토어

Note that if you get Psiphon from an "app store", such as the Google Play Store or Amazon AppStore, additional statistics may be collected by that store. For example, here is a description of what the Google Play Store collects: https://support.google.com/googleplay/android-developer/answer/139628?hl=ko
