Solution- Profiling your identity and actions

Disassociating your true identity from an IP address assigned to your device usually requires a change of your physical location - a public place - to connect to the Internet from. Using a wifi hot-spot or going to an Internet cafe will give you some degree of anonymity (especially if those places are not running CCTV). Bear in mind that once connected you need to consider the following concerns that may de-anonymise you on the local network:

  • Software on your computer. Your Internet browser and many other tools, including malware, may reveal your identity on the network. Use a live operating system such as Tails on your computer to ensure that there is no history or malicious tools during your session
  • The services you access online (e.g. your Facebook page) may also correlate your current IP address to your identity. Refer to the [Tails]] section or use the built-in Tor Browser from the Tails operating system.

The situation is much more complicated (regarding anonymity) when accessing the Internet from your smartphone. Please refer to the section on Protecting your phone for more details.
