> I have the same worry as Martin. I set up a bridge on AWS 2 weeks ago by following the instructions here https://cloud.torproject.org/ and choosing a bridge image for Ireland.
> Setup went well, log files on startup tell me my bridge contacts the tor network, and I checked I could use my bridge by explicitly configuring it in a tor client. But the traffic I see in arm is very small (around 100 MB / week) compared to what I observed when I tested a tor relay (over 2 GB in a week-end). On the other hand, I didn't find my fingerprint in Globe.

Please keep threads together. Just use reply normally.

I will not send my fingerprint to globe over http. I want to keep it
secret so I can't check my bridge. I hope it works. obfs-ports are
forwarded and everything else are standard torrc-settings.

But please make globe accessible over https.
