Most apps that let you message people anonymously head down a similar path: Users take advantage of the anonymous features to spew racism, threats, and bullying.

A new app called tbh is hoping to change that — and it just reached the top of the App Store's free apps chart.

The app isn't a standard messaging app like Yik Yak or Sarahah, though: Instead, users are presented with a series of prompts about their friends like, "Should DJ every party" or "Hotter than the sun" and four options for friends that best fit that description.

But you can still use tbh if you're in college or have already graduated.

A tbh is used almost like a form of Instagram currency, since you can trade a tbh for a like on one of your photos.

Here's how the app works:

Nine months after Facebook Messenger rolled out Rooms, its group chat feature where people can converse anonymously, Line is doing the same thing.

Line, the messaging app that’s popular in Japan and a small handful of Southeast Asian countries, is calling its iteration Squares, the firm announced this afternoon.

It launches today in Indonesia and South Korea.

Line Square’s chat rooms will be based on interests, with each one able to accommodate up to 5,000 members.

You can invite in friends via a link or a QR code.

Group chatters do not need to share personal information or even their Line ID.

On today’s web it’s hard to set a (digital) foot online without it attracting dozens of trackers and log entries, as companies look to learn everything about you and sell that data on to advertisers.

To hide you’ve got a few tools at your disposal, many of which we’ve talked about in the past, and all of which add up to a largely anonymous browsing experience.

None of your incognito-mode website visits are saved in your browser’s history, and searches aren’t stored either (at least in the browser—if you signed into Google before searching, they may be logged in the cloud).

If you want to stay anonymous online though, incognito mode only really keeps you anonymous as far as your local computer goes.

Your internet service provider (ISP) can still recognise your computer and the sites you’re visiting, and so can your employer, government agencies, and anyone else who might be listening in.

It’s useful, but to be well and truly anonymous, you need a bigger cloak.

Pornhub has started accepting cryptocurrency as a payment option, the company announced today.

The site now accepts Verge cryptocurrency (no relation to The Verge), a rebranded version of Dogecoindark, which split off from the original meme coin, Dogecoin, in 2014.

Now, users can pay for any Pornhub features, including a Premium subscription, using Verge cryptocurrency.

Verge cryptocurrency is anonymity-focused, which is why Pornhub executives say they chose it over other potential partners.

It should be noted that anyone can view Verge cryptocurrency transactions through its public ledger, but it uses the anonymity tool Tor and an anonymous network layer I2P to hide specific transactions’ IP addresses and locations.

Since public ledgers often have their downfalls in protecting anonymity, users also choose to hide on Verge cryptocurrency’s private ledger.

Bitcoin has always been the most high-profile cryptocurrency out there, but in recent months its recognition has exploded to the point where your granddad who doesn't have the internet and only reads the local paper will have heard of it.

The problem is that the reasons why Bitcoin is so recognisable are also causing cyber criminals to adopt competing cryptocurrencies.

Since its inception Bitcoin has had a bit of a surly reputation thanks to its use by cybercriminals.

The anonymity factor was part of it, and meant criminals could be paid for work with less risk than conventional currency.

But the volatility of Bitcoin's value is causing more than a few headaches.

Despite the drop in value just before Chrismas, Bitcoin still seems to be popular amongst investors hoping to make some cash.

Anonymity crucial for discussion of software asset management in a cloudy world

It will be the second annual meeting focused just on licence management, an area of growing importance as companies are increasingly running hybrid systems and dealing with multiple, often intentionally complex agreements.

Paul Fitton, president of the user group, said that the event would offer “an unrivalled level of anonymity and confidentiality” in a bid to help them open up about their issues and concerns.

The emphasis on anonymity comes from firms’ fear that vendors are always poised to launch an audit or bump up fees.

Just last month, SAP announced it had set up a centre offering feedback on anonymised indirect licensing concerns for users that were wary they would be next on the German giant’s to-sue list.

Similarly, Big Red has often been accused of using aggressive tactics when it comes to brokering deals, licensing, and carrying out audits - so it's perhaps no surprise that the event is emphasising its confidentiality.

Early on, the most appealing thing about bitcoin was its anonymity, making it the payment of choice for online black markets.

The appeal has since broadened, though anonymity remains a key factor for many cryptocurrency users…and it could be anonymity, or the lack thereof, that influences whether cryptocurrencies grow or wither.

South Korea has just announced a major change to cryptocurrency trading, stating that everyone within the nation who trades will need to use their real name.

South Korea has seen a massive increase in cryptocurrency trading recently, spurring the nation’s government to make a big change: you must trade with your real name.

The mandate has been made in an effort to cut down on speculation.

This follows a huge uptick in trading within the nation, that itself coming at a time when bitcoin’s value has skyrocketed to, at one point, more than $19,000 USD.

Fifteen years have passed since a couple of MIT grads and a Navy-funded researcher first built The Onion Router, or Tor, a wild experiment in granting anonymity to anyone online.

Tor protects your identity online—namely your IP address—by encrypting your traffic in at least three layers and bouncing it through a chain of three volunteer computers chosen among thousands around the world, each of which strips off just one layer of encryption before bouncing your data to the next computer.

Earlier this month, Tor announced an update to its so-called onion services, which use Tor’s anonymizing features to hide not just individual people on the web, but servers too, allowing for so-called dark web or darknet sites and other services that can’t be physically traced to any locatable computer.

“After this update, I can say that yes, Tor is the best privacy tool out there.”

Here's how you can use Tor today, whether you want to want to browse controversial sites in peace, or send messages the NSA can't peep.

The most basic—and by far the most common—way to use Tor is to simply download, install, and run the TorBrowser from the Tor Project’s website.

Bill Gates shuns Bitcoin, amid terrorist and fraudulent actions.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates has slammed cryptocurrencies, stating they are slowly killing people.

Gates expressed his opinion during a ‘ask me anything’ session on the news website Reddit.

Furthermore, the Microsoft founder claimed the cryptocurrencies are dangerous due to the anonymity of them, which has encouraged money laundering and terrorist expression.

“The main feature of crypto-currencies is their anonymity.

I don’t think this is a good thing.

The net has all kinds of anonymous proxy websites, net primarily based, socks proxies, transparent proxies and many, many more.

Individuals employ them to safeguard the anonymity of theirs and shield the IP address of theirs, though the basic fact is the fact that these folks would most likely be safer not making use of a proxy in the least.Allow me to provide you with an extremely easy analogy for employing a proxy server - it is precisely the just like taking all of the letters which you create and rather than publishing them offering them to a stranger on the road and asking them to publish them for you!

Will he examine them initially then send them?

Effectively making use of a proxy is precisely the same you're sending Your Web traffic to just one server (the proxy) and also asking that server to advanced all your replies and requests.The following critical thing making that the great bulk of the information you send out and then receive from the internet browser of yours is in text that is sharp, this's since it utilizes HTTP to send out and receive information and HTTP works in ascii text.

That's saying it's all entirely readable to anybody who appears to intercept the information stream such as administrator of the proxy server possibly.These anonymous proxies which you come across free of charge on the internet are usually left open both by accident or even by online hackers compromising the servers and working with them as free proxies.

One or the other method would you would like all of your private information starting this server, it is an enormous security risk particularly as you most likely don't know anything about the foundation of the proxy server.So now do not buy me incorrect an anonymous proxy is a component of the puzzle of safe browsing though it's just part and in case you use a hacked server your spending a big threat.

Riffle guarantees anonymity as long as even one server remains uncompromised.

MIT researchers also estimated that file sharing with numerous users could aid Riffle to achieve a bandwidth of over 100KB/s

Online anonymity has long been one of the most crucial and most sought after aspects about communication for many.

The Tor network specifically, has so far been the one-stop-shop when it comes to online anonymous communication, which coincidentally has made Tor one of the prime targets for international governments' law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and NSA.

However, MIT researchers have developed a new anonymous communication platform, which promises to offer users heightened security against even the most determined attackers.

MIT's anonymity network uses a series of servers called mixnet to shuffle the order in which messages are received and passed on, thereby deterring anyone from conducting traffic analysis and uncovering the points of origin of the messages.

Days after Facebook said it would rethink policies demanding that users go by their “authentic names” following outcry from San Francisco’s drag community, the social network is now embracing an even broader concept of user anonymity.

Various outlets have reported that Facebook is putting the finishing touches on a standalone app that would enable members to log in under the guise of a pseudonym.

Arriving in “coming weeks,” according to The New York Times, the effort marks a sudden about-face from Facebook’s founding mission, which sought to establish a network of actual identities in an Internet often trafficking in anonymity.

Few details were leaked about the project, though the Times claims Facebookers may soon be allowed “to use multiple pseudonyms to openly discuss…[topics] which they may not be comfortable connecting to their real names.”

It is unclear, however, how the app will mesh with existing interactions and connections between ‘friends’ on the site.

Whether users will be able to anonymously share photos also remains to be seen.
