Anonabox PRO WiFi TOR and VPN Router for Internet Privacy

Anonabox PRO WiFi TOR and VPN RouterI just returned from a two-week trip to New Zealand and then to Singapore. I wanted to have secure communications via email and via Google Duo (similar to Apple FaceTime but for both iPhone and Android cell phones) and I also wanted to be able to surf the web securely.

iCloak Offers Security and Anonymity when Online

icloakiCloak is a small device that looks like a USB flashdrive. It plugs into the USB connector on a Windows or Macintosh computer and offers what is supposedly a secure and untraceable online connection to the World Wide Web.

Plug it in, reboot the computer, and the computer loads the new operating system from the iCloak device. The computer’s keyboard, mouse, and display screen are used by the iCloak’s operating system while the computer’s internal hard drive is not used. Once finished, unplug the iCloak device, reboot, and the computer returns to normal.
