You can surf anonymously!
When you surf the Net, log files are created
containing information about:
- The last web site you visited.
- The address of your machine.
- Every place on the site that you visit.
- Cookies that track your visits.
These don't seem like a big deal, but combined
with some security holes like access to your hard drive from remote, someone
could learn a lot about you.
Find out what info is sent NOW by clicking here
