Anonabox Is A Little Device That Utilizes Tor And Can Anonymize Your Online Presence

Invasion of privacy is a valid concern for everyone who goes online. But for those who wish to keep their online activity private, so that cable providers and government agencies are unable to see what is going on, there is Tor Browser. Tor encrypts a user’s online activities and makes it impossible for cable companies and government agencies, such as the FBI and NSA, to keep track of what you are doing.

However, the Tor Browser requires a bit of technical knowledge to implement, a barrier for many who might be seeking anonymity. Enter the Anonabox, which quickly surpassed its Kickstarter goal of $7,500. It is a plug-and-play, open source networking device that will run Tor, making it easy enough so that the average user will be able to anonymize their online activity.

The process to use it is very simple. All you have to do is plug the Anonabox into a router and then connect a PC or laptop to it via WiFi or Ethernet. Once that is done, the device will encrypt Internet usage without any configuration, login credentials, or registration.

Those wishing to secure an Anonabox can pledge $51 on its Kickstarter page and will receive it sometime in January 2015. At the time of this article’s publication, 5,642 people have backed the product and have pledged $358,049.
