Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous
Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience.
Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
You can install a Raspberry Pi on your network that intercepts all web traffic and filters out any advertising. Simply download the Pi-hole software onto the Pi, and all devices on your network will be ad-free (it even blocks in-app ads on your mobile devices).
Routing any web browsing from your computer through the anonymizing Tor network could be useful to improve your privacy needs or could allow people who are blocked from accessing websites to get around those restrictions.
All you need for this project is:
- Raspberry Pi model B+ (or B) – Ethernet is required
- Ethernet cable
- WiFi adapter
- SD Card (4GB or greater) with Raspbian on it.
- Power supply for your Pi
- USB Console cable (optional) – this makes it a little easier to debug the system
- Case for your Pi (optional)
- A SD or MicroSD card reader (optional)
