Want privacy? Use Tails.

  • It's come a long, long way over the years:

    https://tails.boum.org/

    Verify the downloaded image with GPG4WIN:

    http://www.gpg4win.org/

    Use persistent storage with at least two keyring files:

    https://tails.boum.org/doc/first_steps/persistence/configure/index.en.html

    Run off a micro-SD card (easy to hide and/or destroy, if necessary):

    http://www.walmart.com/c/kp/micro-sd-cards

    (Buy directly at Walmart and not through the Internet.  And, create four or five "spoofs", which goes without saying!)

    When starting tails, use the TrueCrypt option:

    https://tails.boum.org/doc/encryption_and_privacy/truecrypt/index.en.html

    Create and store your TrueCrypt container within persistent storage with a MINIMUM length passphrase of 30 characters (Upper & lower case letters, numbers, punctuation & special characters -- easy for you to remember but impossible for others to guess, and, of course, do NOT write this down anywhere, which means "Practice, practice, practice"!!!) and use two or three keyfiles!

    Use bridges:

    https://www.torproject.org/docs/bridges
    https://tails.boum.org/doc/first_steps/startup_options/bridge_mode/index.en.html

    And, αnσnymσus Wi-Fi hotspots:

    http://www.howtogeek.com/196186/how-to-find-free-wi-fi-hotspots-when-travelling/

    ("Never the same place twice for maximum security!")

    Use αnσnymσus email and only access via the Tor network:

    bitmailendavkbec.onion

    (That's an '.onion' address.)

    Use a tablet:

    http://www.walmart.com/browse/tablet-pcs/computers/3944_3951_1078084

    (Once again, buy off-the-shelf.)

    ENCRYPT EVERYTHING (especially, email)!!!

    I read yrs ago a Swiss company (where else? - The (ahem) 'neutral' Cuckoo 'timed' country calling the shots) was developing a chip to be hidden in all hard drives/usb devices/micro-drives recording info on the user!

    This is not occurring on a large scale but may be occurring on a small scale, especially, if you're on the government's "bleep-list", which is why you need to be buying your hardware αnσnymσusly.

    Then just use the Tor Browser:

    https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en

    Just "extract and go"!
