About this project
InvizBox Go aims to secure your internet connection at home. Take it with you when you’re out and about or travelling. It is a small, discrete router that incorporates a battery allowing you to secure all of your devices when you’re using any WiFi connection (e.g. at home, in a hotel or anywhere else there is public WiFi).
InvizBox Go has featured in: Forbes, Ars Technica, The Register, The Irish Times, BGR, Ubergizmo, The Journal, Barron's, The Irish Independent, The Belfast Telegraph, VPNCompare.co.uk, Goos3d, GreyCoder, VPN Fan and many more!

As soon as you're connected to InvizBox Go, you're safe. Safe from tracking and profiling by people, governments, companies and hackers who you neither know or trust. InvizBox Go uses either a VPN connection or a connection to Tor to fully protect your local network.
You can simultaneously connect every WiFi enabled device in your house to the InvizBox Go to secure them all. You connect just like you would with your normal WiFi. You can also take it with you while travelling to keep all of your devices safe from untrusted public networks in hotels, coffee shops, etc.
Use our global reliable, fast and secure Virtual Private Network (VPN) will consist of 61 servers in 18 countries at launch to keep yourself safe, access blocked websites and your favourite Sports and TV shows.

Get a free travel case for your InvizBox Go! To claim it, all you need to do is publicly share a link to our kickstarter page on either facebook or twitter (preferably saying that you have backed us), then send us a message on Kickstarter with a link.
You can connect multiple devices to just one InvizBox Go.
Runing out of power on your phone or tablet when you're not at home? Simply plug the device into the USB port on the InvizBox Go and charge away. It will easily charge a mobile phone from empty to full or can be used to top up your tablet.
View blocked content from anywhere in the world. InvizBox Go gives you full access to the TV and sports and programming you otherwise have difficulty reaching,
Watch your favourite online, movies, sports shows when travelling in areas that normally block that content.
One of the great features when using our fast VPN network is the ability to watch all your favorites online media anywhere you are - making the internet truly global. Believe it or not some services restrict or block content depending on where you are. We've designed the InvizBox Go to work in those scenarios by the utilizing our global VPN service. Like everything else with the InvizBox Go it's simple to change countries too.
The InvizBox Go web interface is fully responsive and easy to use. Isn't it annoying when a web site only works on your desktop? We are designing a best in class responsive interface for any changes you want to make to the InvizBox Go's configuration on a mobile, tablet or desktop.
When you're using Tor, speed can be an issue. We have come up with a solution to help bridge that gap (pun intended!). When you are a premium subscriber, you will get access to our global network of fast bridges. These give you a guaranteed fast connection on the first hop of the Tor network. We've been testing this for some time now and found it significantly enhanced our experience.
The InvizBox Go has a list of known ad providers and can optionally block those domains for all of your devices, removing unwanted ads. We will automatically keep this list up to date so you don't have to worry about new ad providers coming online.
Once you enable this feature, ads will be blocked for every device connected to the InvizBox Go.
Is there a WiFi weak point somewhere in your home or the hotel room you're staying in? Just put the InvizBox Go into Extender mode.
InvizBox Go includes everything you already get from InvizBox
- The simplest and easy to use UI.
- Pluggable Transports in the form of obfs2/obfs3/scramblesuit to mask your Tor traffic.

Our software is fully open source and we will continue this tradition with the InvizBox Go. This provides two major benefits:
1) It allows other security experts to examine our code, ensuring the best security.
2) It gives you that extra confidence that we're not hiding anything malicious.

Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges:
The InvizBox Go is in mid design stage. The InvizBox Go shown above is a prototype only. The final case will be a lot nicer.
We have tried hard to forecast / estimate demand and created a realistic production plan. We've learned a lot from the last crowdfund, but like all plans there will be bumps and knocks along the way. Some of these have been accounted for time-wise, but you can't predict everything. Any changes and challenges we face will be updated regularly along with regular progress updates.
Yes! The InvizBox Go uses OpenVPN which is configurable to connect to most VPN's.
You can power the device over microUSB.
Yes! It works just like a regular network. The VPN adds some latency to the connection. You should not use the Tor option with gaming.
Yes! For the most secure experience, you can connect to our VPN over Tor. That way even we can't see the source IP address.
Yes! A lot of people have raised concerns around Windows 10 privacy and tracking. The InvizBox Go includes the option to block the domains associated with this tracking.
No. We are not affiliated with them in any way. We do build and use the excellent software that they provide and we have already donated nearly $500 to them as a way of thanking them for their efforts. We also currently donate 2000GB of bandwidth every month to help keep the Tor network fast.
Yes! We will be selling replacement batteries through our normal webstore.
