How to Remain Anonymous Online

Some might say the internet was built on anonymity, paving the way for a place where free speech reigns supreme but after years of learning about who's snooping into everything we do online, privacy on the internet is a more popular topic than ever. It's not just about government spying; it's also about how much big companies like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft have collected about us.

How to surf the web anonymously and keep your browser from tracking you

  -  Use a Secure VPN service to protect your true IP address

  -  Use a browser like Chrome that has an "incognito" mode and use it

  -  Make sure you don't download or bookmark anything

  -  When you sign up for things do not use your real name or fill in optional data fields with real data

  -  Use a Secure Email service provider like Discreet.Email

  -  If you need to purchase something use alternative anonymous payment methods 

  *  Keep in mind that an already-compromised computer can still be tracked

Doing these things will hide your real IP address and name from service providers and limit tracking left on your computer.
