Accessing The Web Anonymously



In my last post I stated how one can use Tor Browser on PC and Orbot on Mobile to access the internet anonymously.

Those aren’t the only ways to be anonymous.

Irrespective of the Operating System on your Desktop/Laptop, you can download a Virtual Box.

In that virtual box, you can install an Operating System called Whonix.

Whonix is a two step OS.

Whonix Gateway and Whonix Workstation.

Whonix Gateway is what configures the whole machine and routes all traffic through the Tor network. You will need to run it while running the Whonix Workstation but you will have little to no interaction with it. Whonix Workstation is where you operate as a user.

Gateway and Workstation have no real connection to each other.

And your actual machine has no real connection to either of the two.

If you aren’t to friendly with technology, that is probably the best way to be anonymous.

Carry out all your web tasks through Whonix.

As long as you are inside the Whonix-Workstation, you are virtually anonymous.

There is an even more extreme way to be anonymous but it doesn’t really work on every machine.

Nevertheless, I will tell you about it next time.

P.S. Stay anonymous!
