Book Description

This manual is what you need to become Anonymous Online in the next two hours... and I mean really Anonymous!
*Learn why Bitcoins are NOT Anonymous!*
"From a MicroSD card, I can boot my computer at home, work or wherever without logging in, revealing my location, leaving data behind or displaying my activity for monitoring. I can access virtually anything from anywhere, Anonymously, then stick the SD card back in my phone and go."

Other books tell you to encrypt your hard drive and install anonymity software... that just looks suspicious. I don't know about you, but I want to keep my need for Anonymity a secret.
I will show you how to:
• Browse the Internet Anonymously
• Use someone else’s computer without them knowing
• Circumvent Windows without altering anything on the system
• Make an email account that actually is anonymous (you’ve probably never heard of this)
• Use PGP Encryption the right way (I make this simple)
• Taunt Kim Jung-Un
I will show you why Bitcoin is NOT Anonymous and how that is about to change.

I provide you future updates to keep you up-to-date with this quickly evolving game of Cat and Mouse

This manual is written:
• In 1-2-3 step format
• With concise, yet thorough, instructions
• For beginners using a PC

***--This is based on the mantra "Keep It Simple Stupid."--***

I wrote this so you could be anonymous TODAY. Why waste a week reading about online Anonymity to still end up having to figure out how to implement it yourself?

!!! Don’t buy anonymity software or subscribe to a proxy service !!!

Here are a couple of important points regarding Online Anonymity:
• Disabling Cookies is USELESS - You are still traceable by your digital fingerprints.
• Using an IP Proxy Service is BAD - It routes all your activity through a central source that can track you.
• Logging into a computer is BAD - It leaves a record that you were there.
• Subscribing to an Anonymity Service is BAD - You are giving them your name, credit card info, etc. to buy anonymity... it isn't anonymous if you give them information.
• Creating an "anonymous" Yahoo, Gmail, etc. account is BAD - Just ask General Petraeus how well this works.
• JavaScript is BAD - this is a prime vehicle for transporting Malware into your system.
• Super-Cookies are BAD - They regenerate deleted cookies, they are stealth and hard to delete.
• Digital Fingerprints are REALLY BAD - Advertisers have begun using digital fingerprints to track user activity. They are created by gathering the data your system provides websites, such as, installed fonts, browser extensions and their micro-versions, operating system and its updates, time zone, etc., etc., etc... While individual bits of this information are not particularly dangerous, collectively, they are compiled to create a traceable and unique digital fingerprint.
• Bitcoin is NOT Anonymous – Other books tell you that Bitcoins are Anonymous or that you can use “Bitcoin Laundry” services to cover your tracks. I will show why they are wrong and what technology is in the works to fix this.

Don’t Worry! We are going to work around all of these.

All you need is DVD burner, and a DVD-R to get started.

To go all the way you need 3 DVD-R's and a 4GB+ USB Flash Drive or MicroSD card with USB adapter.

In an age where we have come to expect privacy encroachments almost everywhere, it is nice to see a book that shows people how to "fight" back in a small way!

Anna Eydie offers up simple, effective, and specific recommendations for that will keep you anonymous in many different situations. Where they might not fit your use cases exactly, they do provide a basis for further action and increased awareness concerning the risks and countermeasures when attempting to remain anonymous on the internet. The book also contains a well written section that describes how bitcoins are not truly anonymous in a relatively simple manner.

While I would prefer that the book provide more options and resources and a few images or screenshots during the tutorials, I have no problem recommending this to people looking for simple solutions for anonymity.

Buy this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great manual well worth the price June 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Thanks for a great manual. I bought this because I wanted to read the section on Bitcons but I actually learned something else. I was totally overlooking something that was letting my actual location be discovered even though I thought I was totally anonymous and was using fake IP's.

I also never knew you could run a system on a microSD card and I had never heard of digital fingerprints. I did the check and my system was unique. Now its not.

I wish I had read this a few years ago. You are right that there is a ton of information about anonymity but none of it has clear instructions and especially instructions that cover all the bases. I simply ran tor before and thought I was fine. I also never thought of Bitcoin as a means to track me. I'm glad that is getting sorted out like you mentioned.

Thanks again for writing this and keeping it straight forward and to the point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dummy Proof and Snarky...double yes. April 14, 2013
By Kevin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book saves you hours upon hours of figuring out how to do it yourself. Honestly, I started out trying to do it myself and then got the book and had an "Aha" moment. Simply laid out, with step by step instruction makes it sort of dummy proof and the snarky voice of the book makes it an enjoyable and funny read,too. Interested to see if Anna has any other tricks up her sleeve.

Your information was presented in a very easy to read format. Your presentation was very effective and efficient. Have you tried to ask any penetration testers to evaluate your methods?

Good overall look at privacy and to get you up and running. Anna will get results for your efforts. Use the Plop boot cd to boot to first if your computer cannot boot from a USB flash drive using Bios settings.

I was so happy to finally find a guide to smart internet use that is practical and concise. No need to waste time reading through pages and pages of fluff - the step-by-step directions are clear and direct. I learned simple information everyone should know about cookies, javascript, malware, and how to avoid intruders on the internet. Thank you Anna Eydie!

The section on PGP was nice. I still find the whole thing confusing but atleast I know how to do it now. I will sleep well knowing Kim Jong-Un cannot read my email:)

I do like the A,B,C, instruction formate but i wish it was a little shorter. It is mundain going through all the steps. At the same time, I can see why it is needed. I also wish you would expand on the Bitcoin section. I would like to know more about how Bitcoins work and currency trading. I am curious how invested you are in Bitcoin. It does sound like you are very "Bullish" on it. I am also curious if you can use Bitcoin within the framework you set out for the other parts of your book, such as online wallets. It seems there has to be a way.

Despite my curiosities beyond what you mention about Bitcoin, this was insightful. I was not familiar with the tools you used. I know it is probably obvious to some people but I was totally lost on all of this and would not have found this stuff without this book. And I know I wouldn't have set it up like you did.

I would like to know if there is a way to run more than one system off of an SD card. I can see a lot of benefits with that.


Thanks a bunch!!

Lastly, I am very interested in Writeprints. When will that book be out? I think that will be important in the blog world.

I can say that I recomend this book. I don't know if it is for everybody but it was helpful with what I wanted to accomplish.
