Let’s see how you surf anonymously (not 100%) using firefox. First of all we are going to install 3 firefox addons to improve our privacy.
HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox extension that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure.
The following two addons we need it because in some cases our ip addresses is revealed through flash, advertisements, scripts etc.
The add-on is supported by over forty filter subscriptions in dozens of languages which automatically configure it for purposes ranging from removing online advertising to blocking all known malware domains.
It also implements the DoNotTrack tracking opt-out proposal by default, see http://snipurl.com/nsdntrack.
Open firefox Tools -> Options or
Edit -> Preferences
Open Tab Privacy.
In this page you should check only:
> option “Tell websites I do not want to be tracked” in Tracking section. (dnt)
To check if dnt is enabled visit this url http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/dnt/.
> option “Accept cookies from sites” in History section.
> option “Clear history when Firefox closes” in History section.
Everything else should be unchecked.
Now you should install Tor – Linux Installation Guide.
or use a vpn service that does not keep logs.
Stay safe! 😉
