I just wanted to offer some advice to fellow ATS members in regards to privacy. Regardless of being used for good or bad, it is primarily only used to
keep good people safe and secure. So below I will list precautions that I feel should help fellow ATS members keep themselves and family secure from
THIS IS AT NO POINT ANY FORM OF ADVERTISEMENT FOR ANY COMPANY, I CAN GIVE OTHER PROVIDERS IF YOU WISH. JUST ASK.
1. Keeping your online anonymity
There are various methods to hide your identity from your Internet Service Providers however to keep things simple you should be using a VPN. A VPN
can be purchased and installed in a matter of seconds, once enabled you can google your Public IP address online and you will find you are located
elsewhere. As if you was in another country. Reason I suggest paid over free, is that you can never really trust a FREE provider as those providers
may be set up by Government agencies in order to still track data going through it. Nodes/Computers/Servers can be used at either end to, to track
activities. However it is still what paid Service to buy, as some keep logs. One I personally suggest using is NordVPN. They keep no logs, in their
NordVPN never logs where you go on the Internet. If anyone asks, the best we can do is shrug our shoulders. And we like it that way.
Currently charged at $5 a month however, if you go to purchase their lowest package and enter where it says. Got Coupon? 70off.
It will be offered at: £26.00 for the Year.
They also offer:
30 Day Money Back Guarantee
Easy to use
So with that in place, you will gain a program to download. You sign in, and thats it. Protected.
2. Chatting to others online encrypted.
When you chat online, you may use programs like WhatsApp or Skype. These apps are ok in essence but generally these apps all record conversations with
time stamps to an online database. Not something you want really is it? So.
I suggest to those who wish to keep secure in your conversations online to use Wickr. Wickr is a program you can download and run on all platforms,
including your android and IOS devices.
All conversations are encrypted and destroyed after specified minutes. No account registration.
You may find you cannot reach this site, as some Internet Service Providers whitelist the websites meaning you cannot see the site. I would suggest
downloading TOR Browser package. Once download and installed it gives you a Firefox built browser. Once launched, it will allow you to reach sites
like WICKR and many other websites you may have found hard to reach.
TOR Browser Package. This is also the method of reaching the DARKWEB or DEEPWEB. TOR Browser within itself, keeps you anonymous.
With TOR, you will be bounced around the globe and again kept anonymous. However some servers it uses could be again used by Government agencies. So
the suggestion is, to use a VPN service you pay for, together with TOR Browser to totally enable your online traces left null.
I will add more to this post if users find this helpful. I can go into deeper explanations of online and offline safety. If people wish to know
