Stay Anonymous

In a world where our personal information is constantly being collected and analysed by governments and corporations, it’s important to take steps to protect our privacy and maintain our anonymity. The following list of tools and websites will help you beat the system.

  1. Tor – The Tor browser is a free, open-source browser that allows you to browse the web anonymously. By routing your internet traffic through a network of encrypted servers, Tor hides your IP address and prevents anyone from tracking your online activity.
  2. Signal – is a free, open-source messaging app that uses end-to-end encryption to protect your messages from interception. It’s a great alternative to traditional messaging apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, which collect and analyse your messages.
  3. ProtonMail – is a secure email service that uses end-to-end encryption to protect your emails from prying eyes. It’s a great alternative to traditional email services like Gmail and Yahoo, which collect and analyse your emails.
  4. Startpage – a search engine that doesn’t track your searches or collect your personal information. It’s a great alternative to Google, which collects and analyses your search history.
  5. Tails – is a free, open-source operating system that can be run from a USB drive or DVD. It’s designed to provide maximum security and anonymity and includes tools like the Tor browser and encryption tools.
  6. ProtonVPN – is a free, open-source VPN service that provides secure and encrypted internet connections. It’s a great alternative to traditional VPN services that may collect and analyse your internet activity. For a paid service, we highly recommend using Mullvad VPN.
  7. Quad9 – is a complimentary service that can substitute your current ISP or enterprise Domain Name Server (DNS) configuration. It operates by intercepting any Internet transaction that utilizes DNS (which is most transactions) and blocking lookups of harmful host names from a constantly updated list of threats.
