By encrypting and securely routing all your network traffic through your Bitmask-compatible service provider, Bitmask is able to prevent many forms of censorship and surveillance.
FAQ: we ask for the sd card read/write permission because we're using a special area from it to store custom providers added by you. If you update to Android 5, you'll see we don't ask for that permission because that version lets the apps use the special zone for free (because it's app-indenpendent).
