@kat It is possible a local observer can determine you're running Snowflake. Other commenters are correct that this is just an entry into the Tor network, so a local observer capturing all traffic will only see encrypted Tor traffic (which would NOT include "what website are they visiting" for example).
@torproject I'll never remember to turn extensions on, but if there's a service for it, I can crontab it to go on while I'm sleeping, just like for torrenting.
@torproject I just installed it and try it out now.Seems to work,haven't got any error message so far but there are no users yet.Does it work if the browser I installed it in is configured to connect to the internet using Tor or does it need a direct connection?
@torproject only a few people are using snowflake now : https://metrics.torproject.org/userstats-bridge-transport.html?start=2019-04-18&end=2020-07-17&transport=snowflake
Could you explain why ? Maybe is it only in the alpha branch of the TOR Browser ?
@torproject this needs WebRTC turned on to work.
anybody who uses a VPN will disable this in their browser. i know i did.
