Web anonymity and privacy are under threat in many countries of the modern world. To keep them safe, the new Freedom Box project was launched. The main goals of its creators are to protect freedom of expression and users’ private data on Internet. The members of the project are supporters of Free Society and world without censorship.

The Freedom Box project was developed by the Freedom Box Foundation under the direction of Eben Moglen, professor at Columbia Law School and founder of the Software Freedom Law Center. He claims that there are four forces that, when trying to achieve their own goals, are depriving users of online privacy . These forces are governments, content owners, data miners and network operators. Moglen is concerned that the government can start using social networking sites to track people.

And there is evidence that his words may become true. Recently, Facebook launched facial recognition in users’ accounts without prior notification. This fact just confirms that Facebook is likely to be an “automated gathering intelligence agency” as Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, called it. There are also many examples of tough internet censorship in non-democratic countries.

That’s why it is high time to take care of protecting internet privacy. One of the most reliable ways to be protected is to use a VPN connection that can help us maintain privacy and anonymity when surfing the net.
