Freenet mobile

Access Freenet from the palm of your hand
Freenet is a peer-to-peer platform for censorship-resistant communication and publishing. It lets you anonymously share files, browse and publish "freesites" (web sites accessible only through Freenet) and chat on forums, without fear of censorship.

Freenet is decentralised to make it less vulnerable to attacks. Data is distributed automatically and redundant over the network. If used in "darknet" mode, where users only connect to their friends, is very difficult to detect.

To know more about Freenet look here. The Freenet Mobile app allows you to control Freenet with a single tap, configure it to your needs, and start up your node in a matter of seconds.

Features:

* Simple and intuitive interface for controlling the node: start and stop with a single tap.
* Runs in background for better performance to access content.
