With This Device You Can Connect Anonymously To Wi-Fi 2.5 Miles Away
It’s hard to be anonymous online.
You can use Tor, the anonymizing tool originally funded by the US Navy. But even Tor isn’t bulletproof, as there are various ways spies can still identify you. You can use a Virtual Private Network (VPN), but some of them keep logs of customers that can be given away if they get a subpoena.
Now, a researcher has created a device to give whistleblowers, dissidents, and perhaps criminals, an extra layer of anonymity. It’s called Proxyham and it’s essentially a hardware proxy that allows real paranoids to connect to a far-away public Wi-Fi network over a low frequency radio connection, making it more difficult for cops or spies to find the real source of the internet traffic.
