We all know how important internet security is now. As technology advances, hackers are becoming more powerful. Now all your personal information may fall into the hands of hackers.
A few days ago we were most affected by a virus attack that was the Ransomware virus. They encrypted all user data and demanded up to $1,000 for unlocking. So we need to make sure that the websites we use every day are actually safe.
Hacking and hackers
We often get the news that server hack of such and such organization has lost so many millions of data, server hack of such bank has lost so many crores of rupees etc. Who does these? Yes of course hackers.
But who is this hacker? What is his identity? What is the real name, where is it? Nothing is ever revealed.
The reason they don’t get it is that they hide their personal information and stay on the internet. Those who do not have a specific IP address or specific identity. What they actually use, how they use it, and why we don’t know anything about them will be discussed in this tune.
The point will be very clear, let’s say you want to keep your identity a hacker for some reason, then see what your steps will be.
You can use secure internet without having to use any separate software just by setting some settings in the browser. Suppose you are entering a site, now if you change your proxy from Bangladesh and give a proxy in India, then the owner of that site will see your address as India. Go to Google and search for different proxy servers, you will see many sites with Free Proxy server. There is secure browsing using a proxy server.
It’s a lot like a proxy server. This changes your IP and location. If you use VPN, your morning information will be safe on the internet. In some countries, certain websites are blocked. The blocked websites can also be accessed through VPN.
There are two types of free and paid VPN available in the market. Free VPN works for general work but paid VPN is required for a little advanced-level work. However, if you want, you can make your own VPN.
Many of us have heard or know about Tor Browser. It is an Internet browser that does not require a separate VPN or proxy server. Through this, your IP is repeatedly changed and published on the internet through which your real identity is kept secret. Many of you may have heard of the Dark Web, its Tor browser is used to use the Dark Web.
It is much safer to use Tor from our traditional browsers like Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer with which all your information will be hidden.
Google cannot be used
Although Google is the best for the average user, you can never use Google when you want to use the Anonymous Internet. We know that Google collects all your information so this search engine is never safe.
Google has been questioned many times in terms of credibility. Apart from cheating in their search results, stealing users’ information, benefiting by putting pressure on other search engines, various allegations have been made against Google at different times.
Not only Google’s search engine but also any other product of Google cannot be used, such as Google Map, Gmail, etc.
So what to use as a search engine?
In addition to big companies like Google and Bing, there are other search engines on the Internet such as Ecosia, Startpage, Qwant, DuckDuckGo. Everyone uses those search engines but they have a huge impact on users’ privacy issues. Sometimes users prefer to use these search engines than Google.
As I said before, there were a lot of complaints against Google about user privacy, so those who are privacy-conscious use those sites. Search engines feature that they do not track users’ personal data, such as cookies, browsing history, etc. Hackers use these search engines as an alternative to Google to hide their IP for various purposes.
If you want to avoid hackers or become a hacker yourself, you need to be aware of web browsing as well as email addresses. Let’s take a look at how you can be safe in terms of email addresses.
You can send your email to someone by keeping your email secret and forwarding it with other emails. That’s why we use Alias Email. Hackers or others will think that mail has come from another mail, they will not understand that it is your job.
We all know that only one mail address can be opened with one phone number but you may not know that you don’t need a phone number to open an email and you can even create an email address every minute. Yes, I am talking about Temporary or Disposal Email.
There are various websites through which you can get disposal emails. And your identity will be safe and secret. You can search Google by typing Disposable email.
Reply with BCC
If you want to increase your identity easily, the easiest way is to use blind carbon copy or BCC
