Tor

Free software for enabling online anonymity. Tor directs Internet traffic through a free, worldwide, volunteer network consisting of more than four thousand relays to conceal a user’s location or usage from anyone conducting network surveillance or traffic analysis. Using Tor makes it more difficult to trace Internet activity, including “visits to Web sites, online posts, instant messages, and other communication forms”, back to the user and is intended to protect the personal privacy of users, as well as their freedom and ability to conduct confidential business by keeping their internet activities from being monitored.

Notes
Switching from a proprietary service like Gmail to one of the more transparently-run email services on PRISM Break is the first step to a secure email account.

##################
Web Browser Addons
##################

Installing your own add-ons into the Tor Browser is not recommended, as they may bypass Tor or otherwise harm your anonymity and privacy. Check the EFF’s Panopticlick to see how trackable your browser configuration is by third parties.

If you’re using a Firefox-based browser, you can safeguard your browsing habits and stop advertising companies from tracking you by installing Adblock Edge, Disconnect, and HTTPS Everywhere.

Install NoScript and enable ‘Forbid scripts globally’ to improve the security of your browser by preventing 0day JavaScript attacks. This is a drastic option as it will render many websites unusable as they rely heavily on JavaScript. NoScript offers a whitelist you can use to selectively enable JavaScript for sites you trust, but this is considered especially bad for your anonymity if you’re using NoScript with the Tor Browser Bundle.

—————-
HTTPS Everywhere
—————-
Encrypts your communications from thousands of websites by enforcing HTTPS everywhere.
