What is a GoogleSharing proxy?

“GoogleSharing is a special kind of anonymizing proxy service, designed for a very specific threat. It ultimately aims to provide a level of anonymity that will prevent google from tracking your searches, movements, and what websites you visit. GoogleSharing is not a full proxy service designed to anonymize all your traffic, but rather something designed exclusively for your communication with Google.”
The above description was taken from the GoogleSharing main-site. Additional implementation about GoogleSharing can be found on the official site.

How do I use psych0tik’s GSProxy

To use psych0tik’s GSProxy, you will need the GoogleSharing Firefox Add-on.  Once you have the GoogleSharing add-on installed, you will need to add the psych0tik GSProxy to your list of proxies and enable it.

1) Open the options panel:

2) Select “Add Proxy”:

3) Add the psych0tik GSProxy details:
HTTP: 8080
SSL: 8443
Use SSL: Enabled (This is recommended, not required.)

4) Enable the proxy!

I’m having some issues with the GSProxy

psych0tik’s GSProxy works over HTTP, but HTTPS is broken
This may be because you need to accept the psych0tik GSProxy’s SSL certificate. This certificate is self-signed, so Firefox sees it as “untrusted”. Try visiting this link and allow the certificate. Then retry the GSproxy.
More information about Firefox and Trusted SSL certificates as well as handling them can be found here.

psych0tik’s GSProxy had been working on HTTPS, but is no longer
While it’s very possible this could be due to some sort of error on the psych0tik end of things, before submitting and sort of bug report, try the following: Open the options menu, edit the psych0tik GSProxy and disable SSL, re-use Google, then re-enable SSL for the GSProxy. In some cases it seems that the GoogleSharing Add-on is having issues, by “reseting” this way, it sometimes resolves this issue.

Grrr…. I still have questions, why don’t you have more help here?!?

Don’t fret! We’ve thought of this possibility and have both an IRC channel (#psych0tik) and mailing lists ( where you can ask your questions.
