Tails provides a platform to solve many digital threats by “doing the right thing” out of the box by default, protecting even less tech-savvy users from the most likely and highest impact risks.

Tails is a secure bootable operating system which can be started on almost any computer from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card. Tails aims at preserving privacy and anonymity online, and allows to: * Use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship; all connections to the Internet are forced to go through the Tor privacy enhancing and anti-censorship network. * Leave no trace on the computer by default. * Use state-of-the-art cryptographic tools to encrypt files, emails and instant messaging.
