Anonabox Launches Three New Privacy Products & Partners With HideMyAss! to Use Their HMA! VPN Pro Service
Eleven months after introducing the original Tor privacy router, Anonabox is adding three new devices, each offering the user upgraded security capabilities and unique features, including an Admin Interface. The new devices (designated Tunneler, Fawkes and Anonabox PRO) can now be pre-ordered on the updated Anonabox website. The Anonabox Original is also still available at a discounted price.
Additionally, Anonabox has reached a unique partnership with HideMyAss! to use their HMA! VPN Pro services, providing an increased layer of privacy, encryption and anonymity. Anonabox has also reached an agreement with one of the top distributors of tech products in preparation for mass distribution of all Anonabox devices.
VPN is a Virtual Private Network. It is a way of using the public Internet like a secure private network. A VPN encrypts your data and routes it through remote servers, keeping your activity, your identity, and your location private.
Using a VPN is like having a PO Box on the Internet. It is an address that no one can trace back to you. Instead of giving out its real IP address when you click on a website, your computer gives one of HideMyAss!
The website’s data is then delivered to the HMA address and then forwarded to you instantly and securely. The result is you appear to be wherever their server is located, allowing you to access the Internet like a local wherever you are in the world. Therefore, snoopers and hackers online can’t trace your activity back to your real address and find out who you are.
“We’re very excited to roll out the next generation of Anonabox,” said Anonabox CEO Marc Lewis. “Data privacy and security is on the minds of individuals, families and businesses. We feel everyone has the right to keep their information secure.”
Nearly a year after making headlines with a fully funded campaign on Indiegogo, Anonabox heard from its supporters and critics alike, and listened. The company has also contracted with a legend in the tech community who is currently vetting all Anonabox devices, which will be announced sometime in October. The internal changes, third party code audits and updates help to make the new devices faster and more reliable while maintaining its original appearance and travel-friendly size.
“We wanted our customers to know that we listened to them,” said Anonabox developer August Germar. “Through all of the improvements and different options, there will be something for everyone.”
Each new privacy product is unique and works on desktop, mobile or tablets, giving the end user the freedom to choose which router is right for their wants and needs.
- Fawkes is the upgraded Original Tor router included with admin interface, WiFi uplink, and the ability to change your password and SSID.
- Tunneler is a configurable password-protected VPN router that includes WiFi uplink, HMA! VPN Pro service, and features an Admin Interface.
