There are steps you can take to protect your privacy online, but when I start reading about changing IP and MAC addresses, encryption, and key-logging software, my head spins. This is why I'm excited about the ICLOAK Stik. It is super easy - you just plug it into your USB port, restart the computer, and you are ready to go online anonymously.
ICLOAK creator and CEO of DigiThinkIT, Eric B. Delisle, is clearly more tech-savvy than I am. After the revelations about the NSA and the Edward Snowden information came out, he wanted to create something that anyone could easily use to protect their online privacy. In a recent interview, Delisle said, "When you reboot the computer [with the ICLOAK plugged in] it turns that system into a completely safe and secure operating system that can not be tracked online."
The ICLOAK Stik will sell for $50 with a PRO version coming in at $100. They are currently running a KickStarter campaign, where you can get an ICLOAK Stik for a $35 pledge. Check out the website and the FAQ section at the bottom of their KickStarter page for more information about how the ICLOAK helps you to protect your privacy online.
