    Hi

    I suggested this here:
    http://ideas.goldenfrog.com/forums/171209-golden-frog-ideas/suggestions/4279322-privacy-filter-on-vpn-servers

    It got a lot of traction, but GoldenFrog decided to implement it differently as part of the Android app and not at the server level unfortunately.

    Just a few comments on this:
    On iOS it is impossible (without jailbreaking) to control outbound traffic.
    If Vypr could create the outbound firewall at the server end, we would finally be able to control this traffic.
    To make it easier for us, Vypr (or the community) could start creating easy to use rule sets for the most popular applications.
    So, let's say I want to use an app, but I don't want it to phone home, deliver my private info etc to the vendor's servers. Vypr could provide rule sets for popular apps which will allow them to work, but not to send data which would be considered privacy-violations.

    Finally - the ability to actually see where the data is going (visualize our outbound traffic) would be great. That will help to create new rule sets as well.

    I think you could actually do this entirely in your DNS service. Look at how OpenDNS does outbound filtering in their Umbrella service. This is done entirely on DNS destinations, and while not perfect, it does solve 90% of the problem using 1% of the effort compared to actually analyzing traffic.
    This would also allow it to work for SSL encrypted traffic.

    That is great news!

    Is this platform specific (you only mention Android)? I had imagined this happening on the server side at the exit points.

    Just another comment: Since you guys already run your own DNS service (very cool btw), you can do a lot of this in DNS. Look at what OpenDNS does with Umbrella - anti-malware, anti-botnet etc. using only DNS. You could do a lot of anti-tracking and removal of ads using DNS only. And it has the benefit that you can do it for all traffic without inspecting it (think https etc).

    I think this is similar to my previous request for privacy:
    http://ideas.goldenfrog.com/forums/171209-golden-frog-ideas/suggestions/4279322-privacy-filter-on-vpn-servers
    Basically ensuring browser uniqueness and preventing tracking.
