Onion Pi Could Help You Remain Anonymous On The Internet

onionpi

Worried about all the NSA spying? You’re a law abiding citizen but are incensed that your browsing habits are being recorded and analyzed, in possible violation of your constitutional rights? There are ways to make that tracking more difficult (though, fair warning, possibly not impossible) with the DIY project pictured above. It’s called the Onion Pi, uses a Raspberry Pi, a USB WiFi adapter and access to TOR to give you access to potentially anonymous surfing.

Browse anonymously anywhere you go with the Onion Pi Tor proxy. This is fun weekend project that uses a Raspberry Pi, a USB WiFi adapter and Ethernet cable to create a small, low-power and portable privacy Pi. Using it is easy-as-pie. First, plug the Ethernet cable into any Internet provider in your home, work, hotel or conference/event. Next, power up the Pi with the micro USB cable to your laptop or to the wall adapter. The Pi will boot up and create a new secure wireless access point called Onion Pi. Connecting to that access point will automatically route any web browsing from your computer through the anonymizing Tor network.

The link below brings you to a page that sells a pack with all the parts you need for the project. It’s $95, and a portion of the proceeds go to the Tor foundation. But yeah, you still have to put it together yourself.
