Hello board. I'm brand new to a lot of the security issues discussed in these pages. It seems there are some knowledgeable people on this board, so forgive me if these questions are too simple...
I want to completely mask my identity, location and everything else when surfing the web. I figured out how to use a proxy to hide my IP, but I'm sure that's just the start of it.
What other techniques would be helpful to hide the other environmental variables?
What are the best anonymous proxies to use (preferably free).
Some posters here have mentioned the Trace Route is an important factor. How can I hide or change the Trace Route?
I'd imagine disabling Java Script and VB Script would help. How should I do this?
How can I eliminate or disable cookies?
Would using another browser help? How should I set that up?
I realize that nothing is foolproof and a seasoned hacker can get into just about anything. But I'd like to take the first steps. Any suggestions are welcomed. Happy Holidays to all.
