Welcome to the Privacy Melon

On this website, you can find information about VPN services with special protocols that called “stealth VPN“, “anti-DPI protocol” or “obfuscated VPN“. 

The protocol is useful if you live or plan visiting countries where ISPs block VPNs, such as China, Iran, Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Belarus, Iraq, Oman, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and etc.

In those countries, ISPs (Internet Service Providers) use firewalls to block standard VPN protocols like OpenVPN, IKEv2/IPSec, PPTP, and SSTP. 

The most famous firewall in China is the Great Wall of China (GFW). Therefore, VPN providers, sometimes independent developers, try to come up with a better protocol to evade the VPN blocking firewalls. 

For instance, Shadowsocks was developed by a Chinese developer and has been widely used in China and other countries.

With Privacy Melon, my goal is to help you find the best VPN services with stealth technologies that will help you hide your VPN traffic from deep packet inspection.

About me

It's me Melon.

Hi, welcome to my blog! 

I am a guy from a country where most VPNs are blocked and internet censorship is at its best (or worst). 

If you are looking for the right tools to fight the firewalls, I am here to help and share what I know. I would love to help everyone who looks for the right VPN to bypass the censorship firewalls.

What to do next?

As a first step, I would like to suggest you check my Stealth VPN Comparison table, which includes over 30 VPN services with stealth/anti deep packet inspection protocols. There you can choose a VPN according to your own preferences. If you need more info, you can visit my reviews. 

You can also check the Simple Stealth VPN Comparison table.
