About Flter

What is Flter?

Flter is a network device designed to protect you from constant and intrusive data collection. Flter can connect to any internet modem or router in your home and provides security and privacy by routing your network traffic through a VPN and/or Tor network. Our device also protects against malicious advertising, harmful websites and malware. Flter works with any device regardless of the operating system or platform.

Who are you?

We’re a team of 4 software and hardware engineers based out of Brooklyn, NY. Our goal is to make internet privacy and security more accessible and available for everyone. We’ve reached a point in history where more information is being collected by governments, services and internet providers than ever before. It’s our mission at Passel to help minimize data collection and keep your information private.

Why should I trust you?

Our goal when we founded Passel was to keep our users safe and to provide them with the private and secure online experience, which we ourselves wanted the most. This is why we go out of our way to ensure your privacy in every possible way. The Flter device doesn't send any information back to us. What you do online is your business and we're trying to keep it that way. While using Forcefield we have no way of seeing your web activity. Server software normally logs data about incoming connections and users, but we purposefully designed ours to automatically purge any logs so that nothing gets stored.

We collect only the most basic information that we are legally required to for billing purposes. This information is never used for any other purpose nor is it linked to any of our other services. You can read more about our stance on privacy here.

Privacy is our job, our foundation and our promise to you.
