Nowadays we are constantly controlled by web giants, about whatever we do on the web. This is precisely why many people (but not most unfortunately) worry about their anonymity on the web. In this article we will see how to be completely anonymous on the network (or almost).

The operating system to be anonymous on the network

We start from a fundamental point, the operating system. I bet most people who read this article are using Windows or Ubuntu.

Windows is a proprietary operating system (not opensource) of Microsoft, while Ubuntu is almost completely opensource but there have been several criticisms about data collection by Canonical, the company that develops Ubuntu.

In my opinion the best operating system to stay anonymous, but at the same time not give up the ease of use and compatibility of the programs still remains Ubuntu.

If you are that geeky user like me, and his absolute priority is to remain anonymous and leave no trace on the computer, I recommend Tails.

Its main features are:

  • It leaves no trace in the computer storage;
  • It is executable via a USB stick;
  • All incoming connections pass through TOR (which we will talk about later);
  • Tor browser is preinstalled;
  • Incoming connections are blocked as they are not anonymous;

The browser to be anonymous on the network

Another key point is the browser.

Tor Browser is the best choice available, because it allows you to connect to the web by passing traffic through different routes, so making it almost impossible to associate traffic to your computer.

Unfortunately some sites block Tor but for now the list is very narrow.

You can download Tor from the official website.

Use a VPN to always be safe

If you want to remain anonymous without using Tor Browser, or you want to add a VPN to Tor, one of the best is Nordvpn.

It costs 2.97€/month for 2 years and can be used on all platforms.

If you want to buy it you can do it from the official website.

Last but not least is the safety of websites, in fact often there are problems with connecting to the SSL version of sites.

You can be sure about this by downloading the extension for Firefox (so also for Tor) called HTTPS Everywhere.
