It's easy to get swept up in a rage of paranoia nowadays, but there are numerous
benefits to using anonymous surfing software that I'd like to share with you.
Nowadays many people like me travel a lot with their job, time on the road and in
hotels and airports can get pretty tiresome and your laptop almost becomes like a
companion. I work in computer security and so I am naturally concerned with identity
theft, security and unfortunately am well aware of the criminal element working on
the internet. Travelling around a lot you become even more vulnerable, hotel internet
connections, airport and cafe WiFi - all are riddled with different security problems
and managing your life from these points via a web browser on your laptop is
extremely worrying. This is why I use anonymous surfing software, it gives me
tremendous benefits which I use everyday, which I will list some here for you.

1) Protects my Privacy - this is important to me and I have a real problem with
knowing that every move I make on the web is logged in access points or at my ISP,
not using my privacy software it isn't!

2) I can run it on a USB stick - every where I connect all my web browsing is
encrypted to the same level as the US orders in Iraq. Nobody can read any of it apart
from me

3) I can pretend to be from whatever country I want - when abroad I can view UK TV
as a resident by selecting a UK proxy. I can also pretend to be from the States when I
want to use something like Pandora(a fabulous US only Internet music station)
4) As above I am not classified by my IP address, I am an internet citizen so can
bypass stupid restrictions by governments (Turkish ISPs block blogs and YouTube!).

5) I can speed up my browsing - how many times has a security product made
something quicker. I can pick from a network of proxy servers across the world to
actually speed up my browsing whilst encrypting and protecting my identity and data

I surf securely wherever I am, I am not restricted by countries petty censorship when I
visit them and I feel in control of my data when I use anonymous surfing software. In
fact I showed a colleague how to access UK casinos legitimately using the software
when I was working in the States last month (European casinos block US IP addresses
mostly from their games). It really feels rather empowering sometimes.


To see which software I use to protect my web browsing - you can read about Identity
Cloaker here and see how you can even access BBC Iplayer abroad

Surf safely, protect your privacy,

Jim
