Modern Internet in the broadest sense is cruel and unforgiving. While remaining the most convenient and common means of communication and transmission of information right now, the network memorizes every step of users and keeps a history of long relationships with her. Confidential photo miraculously free, personal files, run file sharing, Google carefully slips suspiciously relevant ads (if someone learns your search queries), and Apple under the guise loads the next U2 album to your smartphone. Veiled surveillance network, which I do not hide any intelligence agencies or private companies, fortunately, a reaction in the form of centrehow Internet activists fighting for our private life. Fight for free Internet is particularly relevant in our country where control of the network by citizens seeking government agencies. Today among users of cryptomaterial and protected browsers Internet marginal and WWW-criminals, and conscious and free people. We decided to choose the most well-known proven application and technology, which encrypts user data based on the needs of the active users of the network.

The Tor project "a Beam of light in a dark Internet" — know about Tor, even those who have never used this system onion routing, and haven't surfed in darkwave. Perhaps the Tor is the basis of the modern safe Internet user. Use the browser and system proxy inbound and outbound traffic is encrypted, ensuring the anonymity of the Internet. Tor gives access darkweb where there is already a huge number of sites hidden from the average user. Besides browser this project works well in "normal" Internet. Tor often solves the problem with access to certain sites that are entered in the exclusion lists control Internet bodies and blocked by the provider.

DuckDuckGo will not (as all the other search engines) to tell the user searches and to adjust the Internet (and therefore advertising) under it. The search engine only provides a reliable and completely anonymous surfing: DuckDuckGo copes well with its main task, in parallel, encrypting user data. By the way, the development of the American Gabriel Weinberg is the most convenient method of searching in darkwave — other search engines often shy away from the search domain zones .onion and refuse to work, citing allegedly poor connection. Recently, DuckDuckGo works with Safari browser: the choice of kriptopolis is built into all Apple operating systems.

The messenger Telegram Perhaps the most popular cryptomancer largely owes its fame to the timely appearance of the web. On the Telegram drew attention to the background of loud statements Snowden about NSA surveillance, as well as the transition of a competitor WhatsApp under the wing of the monstrous Facebook.
