Security and privacy of users is of prime importance. A hardware product from Pogoplug, Safeplug attempts to ensure it by re-routing your entire network traffic via the well known Tor network. It connects to your router and you can enable or disable it from the Safeplug page.

The device cost only $49 and following is the hardware spec:

  • Processor: Feroceon 88FR131 rev 1 (v5l)
  • CPU Hardware: Feroceon-KW
  • BogoMIPS: 799.5
  • Total Memory: 128MB

Tor Network

Tor multiplexes the traffic from its users by randomized bandwidth-sharing. The higher the number of users, the more difficult it is to distinguish network traffic from a particular user. Though not invincible, right now using the Tor network is a extremely good way to hide your information from being peeked at.
