For those who are watching to be safe and secure on their computers, there is the possibility of operating the machine directly from a USB drive that you can carry in your pocket.
Connect this to a USB port on a Windows or macOS computer, and the flash drive acts as a backup and software for renting everything – display, keyboard, processor, graphics – from connected machines.
Turn off the computer, unplug the USB drive, and it feels like you have never been. It’s a fun way for those who appreciate their privacy, as well as those who spend a lot of time moving between offices.
For the purposes of this book, we will see Tails. It was designed as a way to prevent surveillance, surveillance, advertising, and viruses, and comes with a host of useful, confidential software. It’s free to use, and all you have to provide is a USB stick.
We show you how to set up Tails in its immutable design, which gives you great anonymity and security; every time you start it, it’s like starting a new computer for the first time. If you want Tails to remember what you did and use the files stored on the USB stick, it is also possible – the instructions are Pano.
The tails represent The Amnesic Incognito Live System, which refers to the performance of your operations as soon as you remove the USB from a connected computer and progress. It takes the distribution of Debian Linux, and should work well with most computers from the last decade.
To do this, you need a USB stick with a capacity of at least 8 GB. With it in hands, head to download page Tail and select the operating system you are using to configure it. Follow the instructions on the screen and you will find a USB image file with a size of 1 GB, which you will need to transfer to the flash drive only.
