Between censorship and hackers overreaching data collection, there is a huge demand for products that increase users’ privacy online. Two days ago, August Germar introduced a router designed to work alongside your internet router, that anonymizes internet activity. The project rasied more than half a million, surpassing it’s initial pledge of $7,500 on Kickstarter.
According to it’s developer, Anonabox is a tool for freedom of information and privacy concerns. The Anonabox works by redirecting your internet data through the Tor network, software designed to allow anonymous web browsing. It hides information such us current logged-in user name and last-visited URL, IP address and other information disclosed through regular browsers. So, you can browse anonymously and even overcome censorship regardless of what program you are using. Anonabox is an open source and will be sold between $45 to $51.
What Sparks Our Fire: A device that helps us increase our privacy on the Internet.
The Anonabox is still on Kickstarter, if you are interested, you can back it here. It will be quite interesting to see where this goes in the next few weeks.
