Browsing the web

The Tor Browser is one of the best known anonymous browsing tools out there. It is often described as a ‘censorship circumvention tool’. It is a free network of servers, or ‘nodes’, that randomly route Internet traffic between each other in order to obfuscate the origin of the data. The Tor Browser can significantly increase a user’s privacy and anonymity online. In internal documents, the NSA even refers to Tor as “the king of high-secure, low latency Internet Anonymity.”



Proton Mail is a Swiss-based email provider which incorporates complete end-to-end encryption of emails. All emails are secured automatically with end-to-end encryption. This means even we cannot decrypt and read your emails. As a result, your encrypted emails cannot be shared with third parties.



Many messaging platforms already provied end-to-end encrypted messaging. This includes WhatsApp and iMessage. Signal is a messaging app designed so they themselves cannot read your messages, and no one else can either. Everything is always end-to-end encrypted and painstakingly engineered in order to keep your communication safe.
