Hiding in Plain Sight with anonym8

When you go prowling around the web doing whatever you are going to do it would be highly recommended that you are covered when you do. You need to have a certain amount of anonymity when doing so and that is where this very handy little automation script comes in written by HiroshiManRise called anonym8. Now while it is true everything this script does can be done manually, automation most certainly makes things much quicker and easier doesn’t it?

First we need to install this handy little script from HiroshiManRise and you can get it here: https://github.com/HiroshiManRise/anonym8

Then extract the contents of the archive for installation. Or you can clone the application like so:

sudo git clone https://github.com/HiroshiManRise/anonym8.git

To install, open a terminal and navigate to the directory and then start to install using the following directions:

First cd to the working directory of anonym8 in terminal, then to begin install, type:

sudo ./INSTALL.sh

Once the installation completes you can begin using your newest automation script. You will need to sudo these commands and by simply typing

sudo anonym8

You will get a list of all the commands available to you including full automation. This handy little script will do several things for you such as  Tor tunneling, I2P, privoxy, polipo, macchanger, arm, wipe, and hostname services. It will be useful to also know that this script can be initiated from anywhere with the terminal command. So just look over the commands available when you activate it, they are all pretty straight forward and simple to use which is why I didn’t feel this particular tutorial did not require a video.
