SafeWeb dumps anonymity for security

Author: JT Smith

CNET: "Online start-up SafeWeb has dismantled its free privacy service, which sheltered
individuals' identities and movements as they scanned the Web.

The Emeryville, Calif.-based company, which launched its free service last year, said the high
cost of bandwidth and a lack of ad-related profits contributed to the closure. The company posted
a notice on its Web site last week saying that it has suspended the free service."
