CactusVPN Now Offers Obfuscation


Governments are starting to realize how VPNs help people bypass censorship, so some of them have started blocking VPN traffic (like China, for example). 

Well, that doesn’t sit well with us. So we’re proud to announce that CactusVPN now supports VPN obfuscation through obfsproxy.

What Is VPN Obfuscation & Why Do You Need It?

To keep it simple, it’s a way to hide your VPN traffic (OpenVPN traffic, to be exact) from ISPs and government surveillance agencies that use DPI (Deep Packet Inspection). Our feature will wrap all OpenVPN data in an obfuscation layer to stop them from detecting it. 

What’s more, it also uses a handshake without a recognizable byte pattern to make the data look like regular HTTP traffic.

If you’d like to learn more about this topic, check out our full guides to VPN obfuscation and to Obfsproxy.

Why would you need obfuscation? Here are some pretty good reasons:

  • Get around government censorship that blocks VPN connections country-wide.
  • Stop your ISP from throttling your VPN traffic (which results in slower speeds).
  • Enjoy an extra layer of privacy and security.

How to Use Obfsproxy With CactusVPN

Right now, you can only use it manually. To set up obfsproxy with CactusVPN, follow our step-by-step tutorials for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

We plan on adding obfsproxy activation in our apps pretty soon, though. We want to make sure everyone can enjoy VPN obfuscation in a very user-friendly way.
