New edition of Hiding from the Internet

Posted on July 13th, 2014

HFTIFrontTwo years ago, I released Hiding from the Internet. It documented my attempts to remove personal information from the internet and guided users in reclaiming their privacy. Since then, many techniques have changed and I have developed numerous new methods of “hiding”. Today, I release the second edition of this book with over 100 pages of brand new content including five additional chapters.  These new sections help you properly protect your computer and internet connection, make purchases anonymously, create disinformation to confuse data companies, and identify personal exposure in the future.
