Online privacy company announces user-friendly tools to help you protect your own online life.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands (PRWEB) March 18, 2005 -- While this story made
online privacy company, Metropipe announced the release of a multi-platform
(Windows, OSX, Linux) supported, ‘Tunneler’ v2.1 enabling every internet user to
protect their privacy on the Internet encrypting web, chat, email, and other
Internet traffic. Alongside will be a free download specifically for Mozilla
Firefox users, the ‘Privacy Toolbar’ which includes a complete set of privacy
and security tools within immediate access, giving you instant security controls
with just a mouse click.
The Tunneler is a graphical interface compatible with multiple platforms (Win, OSX, Linux) which creates an encrypted channel or “tunnel” between your computer and the Metropipe proxy servers throughout the world. Once installed, your web browsing and all internet activities that you send through it are encrypted between your machine and Metropipe, leaving your machine anonymous. This protects you from the many prying eyes out there. The ‘Tunneler’ is controlled by its own application, a simple program that gives you the freedom to turn it On and Off as you please, and automatically configures your web browsers (Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox) proxies.
Technical Support Administrator, Gman had to say “Nowadays, it’s not unusual for ISP’s to track what you’re doing online, it’s up to you to protect your own privacy. It seems that everyone is watching and listening.”
Metropipe has long been developing privacy products to help you protect yourself instead of leaving it up to the powers at be. The ‘Tunneler v.2.1’ and the free ‘Privacy Toolbar’ will directly influence the now common, tracking and logging done by ISPs, not to mention, protection from hack attempts. Just a few months ago, this group of developers and designers made Slashdot news with the release of their PVPM (Portable Virtual Private Machine). A completely virtual Linux machine which enables you to carry your entire Internet communication system on a tiny USB drive, completely encrypted. All Metropipe products are 100% open source. It’ll be exciting to see what other privacy products are on the horizon for 2005.
