For those with legitimate reason to use the Internet anonymously--diplomats, military and other government agencies, journalists, political activists, IT professionals, law enforcement personnel, political refugees and others--anonymous networking provides an invaluable tool, and many good reasons that anonymity can serve a very important purpose. Anonymous use of the Internet is made difficult by the many websites that know everything about us, by the cookies and ad networks, IP-logging ISPs, even nosy officials may get involved. It is no longer possible to turn off browser cookies to be left alone in your online life. Practical Anonymity: Hiding in Plain Sight Online shows you how to use the most effective and widely-used anonymity tools--the ones that protect diplomats, military and other government agencies to become invisible online. This practical guide skips the theoretical and technical details and focuses on getting from zero to anonymous as fast as possible. For many, using any of the open-source, peer-reviewed tools for connecting to the Internet via an anonymous network may be (or seem to be) too difficult because most of the information about these tools is burdened with discussions of how they work and how to maximize security. Even tech-savvy users may find the burden too great--but actually using the tools can be pretty simple. The primary market for this book consists of IT professionals who need/want tools for anonymity to test/work around corporate firewalls and router filtering as well as provide anonymity tools to their customers. Simple, step-by-step instructions for configuring and using anonymous networking software Simple, step-by-step instructions for configuring and using anonymous networking software Use of open source, time-proven and peer-reviewed tools for anonymity Plain-language discussion of actual threats and concrete suggestions for appropriate responses Easy-to-follow tips for safer computing Simple, step-by-step instructions for configuring and using anonymous networking software Use of open source, time-proven and peer-reviewed tools for anonymity Plain-language discussion of actual threats, and concrete suggestions for appropriate responses Easy to follow tips for safer computing

Learn what's private online (not much)--and what to do about it! Nowadays, it can be difficult to complete ordinary activities without placing your personal data online, but having your data online puts you at risk for theft, embarrassment, and all manner of trouble. In this book, Joe Kissell helps you to develop a sensible online privacy strategy, customized for your needs. Whether you have a Mac or PC, iOS or Android device, set-top box, cell phone, or some other network-enabled gadget, you'll find practical advice that ordinary people need to handle common privacy needs (secret agents should look elsewhere). You'll learn how to enhance the privacy of your Internet connection, Web browsing, email messages, online chatting, social media interactions, and file sharing, as well as your mobile phone or tablet, and Internet of Things devices like webcams and thermostats. Parents will find important reminders about protecting a child's privacy. The book also includes Joe's carefully researched VPN recommendations. The book is packed with sidebars that help you get a handle on current topics in online privacy, including international travel, quantum computing, why you should beware of VPN reviews online, two-factor authentication, privacy and your ISP, understanding Gmail ads, and more. You'll receive savvy advice about: Why worry? Learn who wants your private data, and why they want it. Even if you don't believe you have anything to hide, you almost certainly do, in the right context. Would you give just anyone your financial records or medical history? Didn't think so. Set your privacy meter: Develop your own personal privacy rules--everyone has different privacy buttons, and it's important to figure out which matter to you. Manage your Internet connection: Understand privacy risks, prevent snoops by securing your Wi-Fi network, and take key precautions to keep your data from leaking out. Also find advice on using a VPN, plus why you should never believe a VPN review that you read on the Internet--even if it seems like it was written by Joe! Browse and search the Web: Learn what is revealed about you when you use the Web. Avoid bogus Web sites, connect securely where possible, control your cookies and history, block ads, browse and search anonymously, and find out who is tracking you. Also, take steps to protect passwords and credit card data. Send and receive email: Find out how your email could be intercepted, consider when you want email to be extra private (such as when communicating with a lawyer), find out why Joe doesn't recommend email encryption as a solution to ordinary privacy needs (but find pointers for how to get started if you want to try it--or just encrypt an attachment, which is easier), get tips for sending email anonymously, and read ideas for alternatives to email. Talk and chat online: Consider to what extent any phone call, text message, or online chat is private, and find tips for enhancing privacy when using these channels. Watch your social media sharing: Understand the risks and benefits of sharing personal information online, tweak your settings, and consider common-sense precautions. Share files: What if you want to share (or collaborate on) a contract, form, or other document that contains confidential information? Find out about the best ways to share files via file server, email attachment, cloud-based file sharing service, peer-to-peer file sharing, or private cloud. Check your electronics: All sorts of gizmos can connect to the Internet these days, so everything from a nannycam to smart light bulbs should be considered in your online privacy strategy. Think mobile: Ponder topics like SIM card encryption keys, supercookies, location reporting, photo storage, and more as you decide how to handle privacy for a mobile phone or tablet.
