  5. 1.Use of VPN
  6.        
  7.         The best way to be anonymous on the internet without having your IP leaked is to use a vpn,     offcourse that there are two types the unsafe and the safe VPN's, I'm going to list them below.
  8.  
  9.         1.1. Paid VPN's (safe)
  10. Mullvad – http://www.mullvad.net
  11. PQR - http://www.prq.se/
  12. VPN Tunnel - https://www.vpntunnel.com/
  13.  
  14.         1.2. Free safe VPN's (not advised to use though)
  15. SecurityKiss -  http://www.securitykiss.com/
  16. OpenVPN - http://openvpn.net/
  17. CyberGhost - http://cyberghostvpn.com/
  18.  
  19. 2.Use of DNSCrypt or Anonymous DNS's
  20.  
  21. It is advised to use DNScrypt tool so you can protect from DNS leak on the internet,
  22. because if your DNS is leaked you can be tracked via DNS passive checking.
  23.  
  24.                Download: http://www.opendns.com/technology/dnscrypt/ for windows and linux.
  25.  
  26.                Linux users configuration: http://linuxaria.com/howto/dnscrypt-crypt-your-dns-request?lang=en
  27.  
  28.               NOTE: If the service on linux fail to configure properly just start dsncrypt-proxy from                          command line and do not close the window.
  29.                            And don't forget on linux to configure the 127.0.0.1 as your proxy for every                                        connnection.
  30.                
  31.               Anonymous DNS: http://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/wiki/index.php/Censorship-free_DNS_servers
  32.  
  33.               Configure it as your DNS servers for you.
  34.  
  35.  
  36.              DNS leak test after configuration: http://www.dnsleaktest.com/
  37.  
  38.              3. Use of Proxychains
  39.              
  40.               It's advised, in spite of using VPN and DNScrypt, to execute commands in linux using                    proxychains.
  41.  
  42.              http://securitytube-tools.net/index.php?title=Proxychains
  43.  
  44.  
  45.         4. Use of TOR network proxy's and Anonymous proxy's
  46.            
  47.             Use of TOR network can hide your original IP from internet users

  68.        
  69.         6. Use o Jabber Servers + Pidgin + OTR in Windows/Linux
  70.                
  71.              The best way to know that your messages are safe bettween your friends it's using a jabber                      server account in Pidgin and having OTR (off the record messages, allways point-to-point                encrypted messages)
  72.  
  73.              Pidgin for Linux: You can use Synaptic if you use debian based OS's
  74.              You can even compile it from source.
  75.              
  76.              Safer Jabber servers you can use (all these use TOR proxy's):
