Whistleblowers and Sources - Computer Security Tips (Security Tips and Advice)

If you want to contact someone electronically about a confidential matter, you may not want a third party to know about it. Make sure your computer doesn’t help them do so. 1) Keep your files secure: If you have computer files that you want to keep secure, store them under encryption; 2) Decide what computer to use: To conceal your identity from prying eyes it may be safer to use a computer in an internet cafe or on a public wifi network; 3) Hide who you are online with Tor: The Tor network bounces your internet activity through a series of relays to hide the source location. This obfuscates your IP address, making it very difficult to ascertain where a message or webpage visit came from; 4) For maximum security, use Tails: Tails, which is short for The Amnesiac and Incognito Live System, is a computer operating system designed to preserve security.
