Protect Your Privacy with Tails

If you would like to participate in this forum but are concerned about the possibility that your posts may be traced back to you, then The Amnesiac Incognito Live System (Tails) is for you. Tails is a Debian-based Linux live CD (or alternatively, bootable USB system).

When you start your computer from the Tails live CD, all your Internet traffic is routed through Tor, an anonymizing chained proxy. And nothing is written to your computer's hard disk.

To try Tails, download the ISO file, which is available here:

https://tails.boum.org/download/index.en.html

You'll find instructions on how to burn an ISO file to a CD here:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto

Once you have created a CD from the ISO file, boot your computer from the CD and wait until the web browser loads. You should see a screen confirming that an encrypted connection has been established, as in the attached screen shot.

The journalists to whom whistleblower Edward Snowden provided documentation of governmental misconduct have been using Tails to protect their electronic communications against eavesdropping, as Trevor Timm of the Freedom of the Press Foundation reports:

If you are using Tails, you'll want to upgrade to version 1.2.2 before 3 January 2015:
