How to protect yourself from Prism, and other wiretaps


If you want to stay out of the ireful, omnipresent eye of the US and other governments, Prism, and the extensive wiretaps that undoubtedly exist throughout the world's internet and telephony networks, here are a few tips. Stop using social networks. If it turns out that the US government has direct access to Facebook, Microsoft, and Google's servers, you really should stop using their services. You can try using another social network that's outside Prism's catchment area, but really you're just delaying the inevitable. Surf using HTTPS. If you use Chrome or Firefox, you should install the EFF's HTTPS Everywhere add-on. HTTPS is an encrypted form of HTTP, the protocol that your browser uses to fetch web pages from remote servers. HTTPS should prevent the NSA from intercepting your communications — but, obviously, if the NSA/FBI already has access to the remote server you're communicating with, HTTPS won't do you much good. Create an alternate identity, then surf using a proxy/VPN. One of the best ways to prevent the government from tracking you is to assume an alternate identity for all your communications — or at least all of your digital communications — and then use a proxy or VPN to obscure your physical location. Encrypt your phone calls, or use a burner phone. If you want to make phone calls that can't be tracked back to you, our sister site PC Magazine has compiled a big list of encrypted and burner phone services. Bear in mind that some of these services might be nullified by a NSA backdoor, and voice analysis could be used to link your calls back to your identity.

Ultimately, as you've probably surmised, it's almost impossible to keep your identity and actions hidden from your government. The only real solution is to get your government to stop snooping on you in the first place, but the chances of that happening are close to nil. Really, we just have to pray that the government doesn't use its powers for evil — and that it doesn't mess up and allow hackers into its massive databases. http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/15...
