Anonymity Guide

Beginner's Insight to Anonymity Online

At Unadat, we value your privacy. Your financial data is yours, and we built Unadat with the idea of anonymity in mind. That is why we do not even ask you for your name.

While we understand that true anonymity is a difficult task to fully attain, we help you reach the next best thing to internet anonymity, if you are willing to put in the work. If pursuit of absolute anonymity is your goal, please read the Complete Guide to Internet Privacy, Anonymity & Security or another internet security book of your choice. And of course, you can always contact us with any questions or concerns.

[-] Safe Browsing

Use an anonymizing browser, such as the Tor or Opera browser. Tor is actually an entire system, with tools, browsers, APIs and network dedicated to keeping you and your connection anonymous. Once you enter a Tor network path, the traffic to and from your destination is routed through a random set of "Tor nodes." Although Tor's anonymity can be defeated, it remains one of the best ways to stay anonymous when combined with these other recommendations. You can even buy hardware-based Tor solutions from third-party suppliers like Anonabox. As an alternative, most popular browsers have plugins or addons that prevent tracking cookies and anonymize your information.

[-] VPN

Next, you'll need to connect to the internet using an anonymous method. The best approach is to jump around different open wireless networks, public or otherwise, as much as possible, rarely reusing the same connection point. Barring that method, a virtual private network (VPN) works best. There are literally dozens, if not hundreds, of VPNs specifically built to make your internet connection more difficult to identify and track. They do this by replacing your computer’s originating IP address and metadata information with one of their IP addresses for yours and block your metadata information from traveling to the endpoint.

[-] Burner Email

Consider creating an entirely new account that doesn’t tie back to your main email through services like Maildrop. Not only does this keep your accounts separate and make it harder for companies to track you, but it also makes it harder to trace back to all your other accounts. Make sure that your disposable email doesn’t share a password or similar name with your main email account.

[-] Use HTTPS, 'S' for 'Secure'

Stick with Https:// sites. Https is the secure version of Http, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. Https issued by trusted certificate authorities prevents malicious fakes.

[-] Test your Overall Privacy Protection

How well are your privacy actions working? Test how protected you are against being tracked as you browse the web by heading to the EFF’s Panopticlick page or similar resources. It checks whether your browser has a unique fingerprint and your protection against common tracking methods. Based on the results, tweak your efforts or contact us.
