What is AnonIC.org

AnonIC.org is a free resource for those in need of online Internet privacy. The aim of this site is to educate Internet users how to protect their privacy at little or no cost.

This site has been written by professionals to help the average Internet user with no computer education to understand the threats he/she is facing when using the Internet and how to deal with them.

Here is a simple question: what does the "online privacy" mean for an average Internet user? A simple answer to that could be: it is the opportunity to conduct all Internet activities securely, so that no one could intercept the communications, and privately, so that the remote party could see only those personal details of the user the user would allow to see. This task is not that simple, as it may seem. Straightforward reconfiguring of the browser and email client to remove personal details would not solve it. There are some details, which cannot be removed or modified by an Internet user. We will try to explain in simple words what can be done about it
