Who Was That Masked Web Browser? (Or, How To Use The Web Anonymously)



If you’re conscious, you know by now that the government’s NSA and any number of commercial snoops watches you make your way around the World Wide Web. Some of those may be watching you in the shower (Remember to smile as you reach for the soap.).

Fewer on the other hand, are conscious of the Deep Web. That is all the websites that aren’t reached by the likes of Google, Bing and other search services; sites that prefer to remain anonymous but to a select clientele. Many of those are perfectly legal; many are porn sources, terrorists, spies, purveyors of drugs and all sorts of folks who simply wish to be left alone. The number of such sites is very, very large. And there are a lot of folks who would prefer that no one notices their travels to visit such sites. You might be a Chinese dissident hiding from the government, or a user of porn wishing to avoid advertising that. But the snoops are everywhere on the web. Almost.

If you wish anonymity, there is one thing you can do, assuming you’re no computer expert. And it’s free, too. You can visit  torproject.org m and sign up for their web invisibility service.  When you surf the web using their service, you retain your anonymity; no one knows who you are. Not even (allegedly) the NSA. Snoops can see that there’s someone moving around out there, but they can’t identify who it is. If you wish to visit a Deep (or Dark) website anonymously, TOR is your vehicle. Beloved of spies, the persecuted, criminals and innocent folks whose business is none of yours. And of course, vice-versa.

We pass this along as a public service and particularly, because we think that your business, like ours, is none of anybody else’s. Should you find it useful, enjoy. And if you find anything we should add to this, kindly pass it along …

    Now if only I could find an email service that worked invisibly I would be a happy surfer.
