Snowden recommends THIS operating system: Tails

Posted by M. C. on January 29, 2022

If you want more privacy on the internet, the operating system you choose plays a crucial role. We’ve all heard of Windows and Mac, but the “Tails” operating system puts privacy first. Snowden, Glenn Greenwald, and Laura Poitras swear by it. Tails aims to “do the right thing” right out of the box by default, to protect less tech-savvy users from the most likely and highest impact risks to their privacy. On of the most interesting aspects: It wipes the memory of the system every time you log off, leaving no trace of what was done on the computer. You run if from a USB stick, and it doesn’t affect anything else on your computer. To be clear, this isn’t going to be your every day system: It’s an extreme privacy measure for high risk people like activists and journalists. But if you don’t like the idea of everything you do on the internet being monitored, this might be an option to try out. I’ll walk you through how to install Tails, how to use it, and will go over important warnings you need to know when using it.

Be seeing you
