325576-64AnonymoX is an initiative for anonymization in the internet. The aim is to restore the users right of anonymity in the web.

Most websites monitor the behaviour of their users, giving the websites hosts the ability to analyze the general users behaviour and create detailed user profiles, which often times are sold to third parties.

A thread for the freedom of speech of the internet manifests in the repression through federal or private organizations.

More and more governments censor websites with the excuse of child safety, copyright infringement or the fight against terrorism and thereby limit the freedom of speech.

Also blocking users by based on their origin with GeoIP-Blocks is applied often, for example at Media platforms like YouTube.

With anonymoX your are able to bypass many sorts of blocks by jelling a virtual Identity in another Country with only a few mouse clicks.

Short summary of it’s functionality
Instead of accessing a website directly, it’ll be first opened by one of our servers, called Proxy.

This Proxy hides your true internet identiy and makes it look as if not you, but the Proxy is currently visiting the website.

anonymoX is cost-free in its basic version, which is made possible by including some ads. But we provide a chargeable Premium version allowing extended use of our anonymization network.

Please note our Guidline for proper use, if correct functionality and anonymity is very important to you.

Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis.

Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.

Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.
