Internet Privacy is a Right!
Next time you turn on your lights at night and draw the blinds or close the curtains ask yourself why you close the blinds? Are you really trying to hide something, and if so, is it illegal? While specific answers will vary, most of us will agree that the majority of people out there aren’t closing the blinds because they are hiding illicit activity, but this is exactly what governments and interest groups want you to think about people who simply want to be private online. LET’S CHANGE THAT!
Describe your product in 3 words.
Internet Privacy Router
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
As governments began a campaign of quieting the voice of decent amidst the Arab Spring, Internet censorship encroached evermore on the Freedom of speech. Tor was an important tool to circumvent the oppressive controls, but access to these tools remained a barrier to many. Thus we set out to create a cost effective and easy to use solution and the Original crowd funding campaign was launched. Today, the next generation Original Tor Anonabox Router is still being sold and we have expanded to include the Anonabox PRO, which boasts both Tor and VPN integrations, advanced Internet features and a user controlled interface. We remain committed to protecting the right to free speech and Internet privacy and are continuously exploring new frontiers to bring you the newest and best features for a protected and freely accessed Internet.
What makes your product special?
Anonabox remains on the cutting edge of Tor and VPN enabled routers and we’re always looking to add new features. Where we’re successful we want others to be as well. This is why all Anonabox source code is Open Source and freely available.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Getting to talk face to face with our customers and like-minded individuals has been the fuel that continues to drive us forward. Whether discussing the technical behind-the-scenes with our advanced users, or explaining the simplest of uses with a novice, the knowledge that we are providing a genuinely useful tool to people remains our inspiration.
