"Whether you're an anarchist, a covert operative or just someone who wants to exercise their digital rights and hide your online activity, with Incognito you can encrypt your IM conversations and emails, browse securely without the fear of cookies and the browser history revealing your secrets, and best of all, the traffic doesn't reflect in your router logs.

"Apart from these methods that keep you safe from those around you, also on offer is Tor, which sits at the centre of Incognito to obscure your online traces. Tor bounces your internet traffic in such a manner that your IP address, which can be traced back to your physical location, is hidden from the outside world. With Tor, you can anonymise web browsing, instant messaging, SSH, and other applications that use the TCP protocol.

"The first thing you'll need to do is download the Incognito Live CD then reboot your PC with the disk in your drive. If you find your PC booting into its normal OS, make sure your BIOS is configured to boot from the CD/DVD drive before your hard drive."
