Are websites and social networking applications being blocked? Is your network unusually slow? Run OONI Probe to find out!
With this application, you will examine if there is blocking of websites or instant messaging applications, measure the speed and performance of your network, and check if there are systems that can perform censorship or surveillance present on your network.
OONI Probe is developed by the Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI), a free software project (under the Tor Project) that aims to discover Internet censorship around the world.
Since 2012, the global OONI community has collected millions of network measurements from more than 200 countries, exposing multiple cases of network interference.
Collect evidence of Internet censorship
You can check if and how certain websites and instant messaging applications are being blocked. The network measurement data you collect can serve as evidence of Internet censorship.
Detects systems responsible for censorship and surveillance
OONI Probe tests are also designed to discover the presence of middleboxes that can be used for censorship and surveillance.
Measure the speed and performance of your network
You can measure the speed and performance of your network by running the OONI implementation of the Network Diagnostic Test (NDT). You can also measure the performance of video streaming with the dynamic adaptation over HTTP (DASH) streaming test.
OONI publishes network measurement data because placing the data in the public domain allows third parties to verify OONI's findings, conduct independent studies, and answer other research questions. Open publication of OONI data also helps increase transparency about Internet censorship around the world. You can explore and download OONI data from here: OONI - Open Observatory of Network Interference
All OONI Probe tests (including our NDT and DASH implementations) are based on free and open source software. You can find OONI software projects at GitHub: Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI). Curious about how OONI Probe tests work? Learn more at: OONI - Open Observatory of Network Interference
