How to anonymized your footprint online without being tracked by the NSA, FBI, CIA and government? It is a well known ‘secret’ that all government spy on their own citizen. Is it good or bad? It depends, there is always 2 sides to a coin, for instant.
- Government uses the internet to track down pedophile, which is good.
- Government uses the communication network to hunt down and stop terrorist from planting bombs, which is good.
- Government uses the net to spy on foreign government (North Korea for example), to better protect us from foreign missile threat, which is a must.
The problem arise when it is abused by the current government to stay in power – forever. This includes tracking and blackmailing journalist that expose certain leaders. This can be seen in Russia, China, Iran, Saudi Arabia and more, where there is Freedom of Speech, but no Freedom after Speech. Surf anonymously and send secure encrypted email with these three free services. Big brother is watching.
↓ 01 – Tor Project Anonymiser | Free | Android | macOS | Windows | Linux
Tor is a free encryption software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security. Protect your privacy. Defend yourself against network surveillance and traffic analysis.
Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.
- Tor Web Browser / Onion Server Routing – Tor Browser contains everything you need to safely browse the Internet with anonymous email.
- Orbot App – Tor for Google Android devices.
- Tails OS – Live CD/USB operating system preconfigured to use Tor safely.
Surf Anonymously and Hide IP Address with Tor Browser. Tor Browser is perhaps the easiest way to surf the internet without revealing your IP address or identity. Based on my experience, Tor Browser is slow but if you are more concern about privacy, this is a good trade off. As shown in the video below, Jacob Appelbaum introduces the Tor Project and the Tor Network – an anonymity network used to protect people online. It is used by many people around the world to circumvent censorship and to stay safe online.
↓ 02 – Freegate | Free | Windows
Freegate is an anti-censorship software for secure and fast Internet access. It was developed and maintained by Dynamic Internet Technology Inc. (DIT), a pioneer in censorship-circumvention operation.
- users access web sites overseas as fast as their local ones;
- requires no installation or change in system setting;
- a single executable file on a Windows platform.
Freegate works by tapping into an anti-censorship backbone, DynaWeb, DIT’s P2P-like proxy network system. Freegate’s anti-censorship capability is further enhanced by a new, unique encryption and compression algorithm in the versions of 6.33 and above.
↓ 03 – Invisible Internet Project (I2P) | Free | Android | macOS | Windows | Linux | Ubuntu
I2P is an anonymous overlay network – a network within a network. It is intended to protect communication from dragnet surveillance and monitoring by third parties such as ISPs. To anonymize the messages sent, each client application has their I2P “router” build a few inbound and outbound “tunnels” – a sequence of peers that pass messages in one direction (to and from the client, respectively).
In turn, when a client wants to send a message to another client, the client passes that message out one of their outbound tunnels targeting one of the other client’s inbound tunnels, eventually reaching the destination. Every participant in the network chooses the length of these tunnels, and in doing so, makes a tradeoff between anonymity, latency, and throughput according to their own needs. The result is that the number of peers relaying each end to end message is the absolute minimum necessary to meet both the sender’s and the receiver’s threat model.
The Silent Order NSA Sees Everything Hears Everything Documentary
Since its inception in 1952, the National Security Agency has been shrouded in secrecy; for years the White House denied its very existence. For the first time since 9/11 changed everything, cameras go beyond the closed doors of the NSA, deep inside the agency’s over 2 million square foot top-secret compound.
Intelligence organization of the United States government, responsible for global monitoring, collection, and processing of information and data for foreign intelligence and counterintelligence purposes – a discipline known as signals intelligence (SIGINT). NSA is concurrently charged with protection of U.S. government communications and information systems against penetration and network warfare. Although many of NSA’s programs rely on “passive” electronic collection, the agency is authorized to accomplish its mission through active clandestine means, among which are physically bugging electronic systems and allegedly engaging in sabotage through subversive software. Moreover, NSA maintains physical presence in a large number of countries across the globe, where its Special Collection Service (SCS) inserts eavesdropping devices in difficult-to-reach places. SCS collection tactics allegedly encompass “close surveillance, burglary, wiretapping, breaking and entering”.
Unlike the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), both of which specialize primarily in foreign human espionage, NSA does not unilaterally conduct human-source intelligence gathering, despite often being portrayed so in popular culture. Instead, NSA is entrusted with assistance to and coordination of SIGINT elements at other government organizations, which are prevented by law from engaging in such activities without the approval of the NSA via the Defense Secretary. As part of these streamlining responsibilities, the agency has a co-located organization called the Central Security Service (CSS), which was created to facilitate cooperation between NSA and other U.S. military cryptanalysis components. Additionally, the NSA Director simultaneously serves as the Commander of the United States Cyber Command and as Chief of the Central Security Service.
