Hot fix version v1.3 build 2 released, with some changes

Thanks to the over a hundred emails that you sent us describing some issues with the new release. We have fixed some bugs tweaked the software and now produced an updated version 1.3 build 2.

Among the changes is the renewal of the port number only after closing Alkasir and not when resuming after hibernation or sleep or when disconnected. This would save the hassle of having to update the browser settings. However, you would still need to update your proxy settings if you close down Alkasir and start it again manually.

Alkasir v1.3 is out, servers back up & running

While wishing you a happy New Year, we are glad to inform you that a new version (1.3) of Alkasir has just been released. It is now accessible at or by sending an email to

Server maintenance

First of all, we wish you a happy new year full of success, prosperity and freedom!

Secondly, we wish to inform you that the servers of Alkasir are currently offline due to maintenance and hence, Alkasir may not work properly until the maintenance is over.

We apologize for the inconvenience... team

Build 1.2.462 released

We've just released build 462 of version 1.2 for alkasir circumvention software. This build has fixes for issues that result from waking up the computer after a standby or hibernation. In earlier versions, we were told there were problems that forced users to do a restart of alkasir to resume working. Hopefully, this build solves this issue.

If you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.

A few more improvements in new build 461

We've just released another update involving some extra improvements to the connectivity of the bridges of alkasir. This version includes some tweaks that could provide more reliability for connections to the proxy server.

Those improvements were called for after some users in Syria and Iran reported interruptions to the service once in a while. This version is expected to provide more reliability for the connection to the proxy.

Please don't hesitate to here and uninstall the older version, which will no longer work.

The new build is still in experimental mode so it may not work for all users in the same way. In some countries, it may face more difficulty. Please contact us if it did not work for you to help investigate the issue.

We emphasized that the old versions will longer work!

... And a gentle reminder

Server issues & survey

We'd like to inform our users that there was a disruption of the server today and we are still investigating the reason behind this. Users in Syria had informed alkasir that its server may have been blocked as well. We are trying to see if there is a link between the two cases.

We apologize for this inconvenience and wish to emphasize that we are working on a solution.

New version 1.2.0. build 458 released

A new version of alkasir (v 1.2.0. build 458) has been released today to fix a minor bug in the internal browser of the program. If you have updates disabled, you can uninstall the build 457 and download the new version from here and install the new version.

You may not notice much difference if you depend on external browsers when using alkasir. But there was an issue when accessing with build 458 as reported by some users in Syria and Iran.

If you have any questions and feedback on alkasir, please let us know.
