Understanding the risk

To comprehensively protect your online privacy, you need to first understand how your online privacy can be invaded. When you visit a website, purchase items online, enquire about a product or search for a product online, your information is captured and stored. In addition, social networking sites reveal most of your personal information. Adding to the woes is the fact that your emails and IM sessions talk about your identity as well. When you understand the risk, you can comprehensively block those invasions.

Securing your browser
Secondly, you need to understand how you can secure your browser. Implementing latest technologies like TOR is a good idea. The Onion Router effectively hides your identity by relaying the traffic through different nodes. Today, regular browsers come with sandbox and anonymous modes that enable you to hide your browsing sessions.

Securing your system
Thirdly, you can secure your system by circumventing windows. Using powerful encryption methods like PGP protects your network data. Implementing safe browsing methods like blocking cookies, implementing security measures with firewall and antivirus programs and protecting your network with powerful VPN software is recommended. Using VPN software is highly important as well.

Securing your interactions
Whether you send an email or post an update on your social network site, you are sending information across the network. Using anonymous emails and limiting information shared on social networking sites is recommended. For a secure financial transaction system, Bitcoin is the new trend.

This book is a complete guide to anonymous browsing. While it explains about how your privacy can be invaded, it provides necessary steps to protect your privacy.
