What Exactly is Anonymous Browsing?

By December 6, 2013

2013 has been a year rife with Internet privacy scandals, ranging from the NSA monitoring allegations to the shuttering of underground illicit goods marketplace Silk Road. These stories garnered worldwide attention, and increased interest in anonymity among Web surfers from all walks of life.

Accompanying this newfound public scrutiny is a great deal of confusion circling around what browsing anonymously truly means and how it can be achieved. The term anonymous browsing is bandied about often by news sources and everyday users alike, and is often used incorrectly. For some, anonymous browsing may mean visiting websites without your service provider, employer or even your government being able to restrict or track your incoming and outgoing traffic. For others, being anonymous may mean clearing any history, cache, cookies or other private data from your computer or portable device's hard drive at the end of a browsing session.

No matter your interpretation, platform, or browser of choice, our anonymous browsing tutorials have got your back.
