Protect your IP: Get on the DEEPNET for free

The first thing to learn regarding internet anonymity and security is to hide your IP address.

This is essentially an identifying number allocated to your computer. It can be used to trace your identity and net provider online.

The big push is for all ISP's to be black boxed so all your data is recorded, analysed on the fly and then presented to government snitches.

The easiest way around this is:

A) Get off the normal internet (start using the darknet) to defeat regular snitches.
B) Use a VPN which defeats all ISP level snooping via strong encryption.

The easiest way to do this is through a proxy which is some sort computer you connect through which hides your ip.

One of the easiest programs to set up is TOR.

This is mainly for browsing. Your browser connection is routed through a network of servers which obscures your ip address.

Once you set up the TOR Browser Bundle, then you can check that your ip is being hidden.

Before starting TOR, check your IP here http://www.whatismyip.com/

Then start TOR, and visit the site again via the TOR browser.

If your ip has changed, then your browsing is anonymised.

Many sites will *attempt* to block TOR network IP's. You can pick a new IP by clicking the "Use a new identify" button in the control panel. See if you have better luck then... :hug:

‎"Darknet" is simply a catch-all-term used for areas of the internet that arent accessible via traditional means.

Technically, this is a dual term thats split into 2:

Deepnet: Hidden version of the internet, mostly composed out of peer-to-peer connections. Needs specific software to access (TOR incoroprates this to an extent). Usually highly encrypted.

Darknet: Off grid completely. Not even hooked up to the normal internet. We're talking private networks here...
