How to Become Anonymous Part 2: Tails: The OS Made for Anonymity
Welcome everyone to the second part of the How To Become Anonymous online series.
Today I will (briefly) introduce you to what has been defined "The most secure OS" : Tails a Debian based OS. (Official website: https://tails.boum.org/)
Now I know that there is already a forum on this site about Tails but i decided to review it in a more technical way...
The benefits of using Tails over other OS are :
1)It only operates in Live Mode so it doesn't use any SWAP area ( = no trace of its existence)
2)It encrypts your documents and emails with the Facto OpenPGP
3)It forces every site( that supports it) to use HTTPS with the HTTPS everywhere add-on In Firefox
4) The whole system is under TOR
5)Protects your Instant Messages with OTR (a tool that provides encryption)
6)If you are in a public place then it allows you to switch to Windows XP or 8 mode
7)It comes already packaged with some media apps and LibreOffice
1) it doesn't have any hacking tool...this means that you will have to install them by yourself
2)TOR is often slow and Tails was for sure not built to be fast
The features that this OS provides are awesome right?
Well what if i told that it can be even better?
For example by using VPNs, proxies and macchanger etc...
That's it for now , stay tuned for more small "tips" like this one
