Governments, agencies, organizations and also large companies can monitor or investigate your digital actions via traces on your computer.
Vulnerable populations, researchers, journalists or activists (but also ordinary people) will certainly be happy with ubuntushop's Tails Live boot option.
Surfing, chatting or sending files to an encrypted cloud is now really anonymous. After closing the Tails session, no trace is left behind.
Tails is an operating system that is fully focused on the protection of privacy and is used by activists, politicians, inventors, professors and journalists.
Tails is an operating system that aims to protect your privacy. It does this by anonymously connect to the Internet.
Tails is an abbreviation for The Amnesiac Incognito Live System and can be started via the boot menu of our opensource computers. The computer itself leaves no traces behind. This makes it virtually impossible for governments to track your behavior. Not even by forensic examination afterwards.
This operating system is much in the news when it turned out that Edward Snowden has used it to communicate anonymously with journalists.
Tails comes with several built-in applications pre-configured with security in mind: web browser, instant messaging client, email client, office suite, image and sound editor,bitcoin wallet etc.
No usb-stick or cd/dvd needed
Tails relies on the Tor anonymity network to protect your privacy online:
- all software is configured to connect to the Internet through Tor
- if an application tries to connect to the Internet directly, the connection is automatically blocked for security.
Tor is an open and distributed network that helps defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.
Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.
Your ISP sees that you are connecting to a TOR node (your input node), but they will not know what actual data is going in and out and they will not know your final destination. They only know the one node with which you are connected. Tails only run in ram. Nothing is stored on disk and everything disappears from the memory as soon as you turn off or reboot the computer.
Using Tor you can:
- be anonymous online by hiding your location,
- connect to services that would be censored otherwise;
- resist attacks that block the usage of Tor using circumvention tools such as bridges.
- Built-in Tails update function. Worldwide shipping.
- A Tails Live System Toram boot option is also available on all our open source computers. (So for example you can reboot a Linux Mint notebook into a Tails Live system. The existing hard drive is not mounted)
There is a possibility to use a USB stick to store data or send data to encrypted cloud storage.
