> Communicating Confidentially
> There are many reasons why Internet users might wish to be anonymous online, keep the content they are reading or sharing confidential, and why they may not want others to know which services they are using – privacy; personal security; concerns about surveillance by governments or private companies; concerns about potential repercussions for statements made in social media and/or hosting blogs for “cyber-activists”; and concerns about conclusions that may be drawn about them based on what they see and communicate on the Internet, to name a few. Each use case might require different tools and strategies.
