The Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI) is a free software project – born out of the Tor Project in 2012 – that aims to empower decentralized efforts in increasing transparency of internet censorship around the world.

We build free software (OONI Probe) that enables anyone to independently detect internet censorship on their network. To increase transparency of internet censorship, we publish censorship measurements as open data in near real-time. This data supports research and advocacy efforts investigating and fighting internet censorship worldwide.

More information about OONI is available in our Mission Statement and FAQ.
