Chinese, proxy for the great firewall according to comments I've read elsewhere. If you think it only happens in China, think again. Plenty of 'Murican programmers get threatened by alphabet agencies when they want to talk computer security or encryption. Next time you go to sneer at China or some other country over their civil liberties, take a second to remember that our government is doing the same thing when people try to gain digital security and bypass censorship or authoritarian controls on tech.

And in the UK and us you get yourself on the terrorist list if you use the tor network.

They will also pay you to pretend as if you are increasing security for airline passengers while actually not doing that and just inconveniencing them and getting them conditioned to subservience.

Soon American developers will find themselves in the same situation if they are found developing encryption software. Only the FBI won't be so lenient.

I don't think they have a problem with most VPN. Most VPN provider will sell you out at the first government request.

Did the police come back? Do you have recordings of them?

Get ready to record them next time, and keep working on it.

Looks like its a tunneling service enabler for VPN use, routes all traffic in a way that can't easily be snooped on or censored. If the developers statement is true it sounds like he/she could have probably done with such a service.

I was under the impression EULAs are not legally enforceable.

Do you have a source for this?

It seems like they are opposed to it because it provides encrypted proxy support on iOS, a way to bypass the great firewall.

I don/t see anything about a EULA.

It looks like OP programmed an app for Apple/iOS devices to communicate securely and avoid snooping or eavesdropping by anyone, including law enforcement agencies. The FBI director in particular has been vocal about encryption like this being "bad" because it lets the bad guys avoid having their conversations being listened in on by law enforcement even when they get a warrant to do that.

There are multiple developers with forks at various points and from which the project can be reconstructed and continued. Just because the original dev was forced to take down his repo doesn't stop code from a distributed source control system.
