- AnonymoX makes you anonymous online. It’s free for Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers.

- Created by the Guardian Project, OStel encrypts voice and video conversations. You can sign up to download the app on almost any device, including Apple, Android, Nokia, Windows and Blackberry products. OStel is also seen as a more secure alternative to Skype.
