It's time to put end to exposed security threats. I have placed too much personal info on the net without good security measures.
I hate it when servers and search engines collect my personal data without my permission. I live in a country that has very strict monitoring policies and where even commercial operators have been caught from recording their employee/journalist converstations.
Now, I'd like to know:
1. How can I hide my IP?
- no logs
- I prefer HTTPS over VPN, so that I don't have to install a client but VPN is ok too if it is good
- should offer many IPs and possibly from different user selected locations/countries
2. The provider should also remove any identifying data which a browser sends to a server such as: OS, Browser ver, display etc.
3. Especially Google search history should not be saved
4. I am willing to pay for the service, but not much. 5$/month should be fine
I have evaluated a few:
- free surfing quite limited, subscriber-only safe but expensive (40$/3 months)
- removes some personal data
- logs for 3 days
- requires a VPN client installation
- quite affordable (5€/month)
- does not say that it removes personal browser data
- no logs
- users say it's quite slow
I also turned my email protocols safe (over SSL) and the next thing to do, would be to change easily-crackable passwords.
I also need a safe webmail for web based usage only. It needs to be safe and I intend to keep mails only on the server.
So, basically the traffic should be https and the server content encrypted.
I tried hushmail.com but a free version blocks the user if he/she does not log in every 3 weeks. I don't intend to write
anything illegal, so it's okay if the provider says it can reveal the content to officials.
