Why Secure Anonymous Surfing ?

There are many reasons for this. The most common reasons are for preventing your neighbors, strangers, someone you know, your boss, or even your family members from snooping around on what you are doing online.

Identify theft, phishing, online fraud, etc. are becoming more and more common these days as more and more people are using the internet. We need tools and ways to protect our internet activities from all those prying eyes. Your internet connection to the internet through your isp is transmitted in the clear, anyone with the appropriate equipment can sniff/monitor your internet connection. Credit card numbers, bank accounts, and other personal information can be easily intercepted. A potential gold mine for idendentity theft.

Enjoying your favorite cup of coffee while you’re surfing the internet in a coffee shop ? In case you don’t already know, the wireless connection between your laptop and the free wi-fi access points found in coffee shops, airport, hotels, libraries, etc., are not encrypted. This means the stranger sitting besides you might be sniffing the airwaves with their laptops, they read what you read, and read what you send on the internet.

Pharming and Evil Twin Attacks are becoming more and more common these days. Are you sure you’re really connected to a legitimate website and not a look-alike ?

As you visit websites, you’re leaving “electronic trails” everywhere. Click here http://www.whatismyip.com…is that your ip address showing on the screen ? With your ip address, people can trace your geographic location, track the sites you visit and build profiles on your internet activities..

What you don’t see in the background is even more apauling. Your ISP or your company’s network have a log of all your internet activities. Some of them keep their logs indefinitely. They know when you access the internet and what sites you’ve been visiting. Isn’t that a big invasion of privacy ? In your day-to-day lives, I don’t think you’ll appreciate your next door neighbor having a videocam trained on your house, recording what you do everyday. Its the same thing on the internet….its none of their business !

Its also well known that certain countries ban or censor their citizen’s internet activity. We see this in the news…citizens of certain countries are banned from accessing certain well-known international news sites, citizens banned from accessing certain search engines, blogs, news groups, etc. All their internet activities are either heavily monitored or even blocked. Any hint of questionable internet activites (I don’t mean criminal activities) will mean a sure visit from the authorities.

In some cases, accessing the internet anonymously is the only way to save your life or keep yourself out of trouble for telling others about the truth. We often see this in the news…. Journalists in certain countries got thrown in jail for reporting something that they shouldn’t. Law abiding citizens got questioned or jailed by the authorities for expressing their opinions online. Journalists got killed for posting certain news online.

We also see on the news about privacy concerns raised on the privacy policy of free email providers. The same privacy concerns are raised on the services provided by search engines and social networking sites.

Although most ISPs have a privacy policy, in practice they just hand out your log information to just anyone who asks for it, even without the proper documentation provided by the authorities.

We at SecureNetics.com don’t monitor or keep logs of your internet activities. Our server logs are used for server performance, and network security purposes only. We remove our logs permanently from our servers after 5 days. We are based in a Privacy Friendly Jusrisdiction.
