Snowden’s computer

tails_logo-7Information here can be used by anyone who wants to hide his presence from other’s eyes. There are plenty of potential users: politicians, missionaries, people who leave in “closed countries” with restrictions to visit certain sites.  Here is just one example.

When NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden first emailed Glenn Greenwald, he insisted on using email encryption software called PGP for all communications. But this month, we learned that Snowden used another technology to keep his communications out of the NSA’s prying eyes. It’s called Tails. And naturally, nobody knows exactly who created it.


A caveat about my instructional posts in general… I am a user, and not that much of a power user at that. I know what I know about computers mostly through trial and error. If I state something and there is a better way to do it, please say so. I also tend to be over thorough and explain things as if everyone was a beginner… this is a result of my early thrashings and gnashings with Linux where I wished someone would do the same and where I discovered how much outdated/conflicting/plain old wrong information there is out there. roll Sorry in advance for that…
