Olive is our attempt to create a more open internet. Back in its early days, the internet had no artificial borders. People were free to access the information they wanted to. However, with the passage of time, things changed. Different authorities imposed restrictions on the type of content accessible to a person. There were many motivations for it – political, legal, etc. However, we believe that this concept of gatekeepers of information belongs to the past. We believe that it should be people’s prerogative on what content they want to access.
Olive is a free software that will let you bypass restrictions and access global content and in the meantime, protect your online activity to a certain extent. You can use it to get access to services available in only certain areas, for example the US Netflix library, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, etc. Or you can use it to follow sports events in your native language. Or if you are traveling to a country that has banned access to popular social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, etc.
Being a people powered network, our users are our strength. So we encourage you to contribute to the network and help other people enjoy their freedom.
