Want privacy? Get cloaked on the Web with one click
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes "An Internet security company announced Tuesday that it is offering one-click "cloaking" software to Web surfers who want to retain their privacy. Anonymizer.com said its new Privacy Button will enable users to turn advanced privacy protection on or off with a single click in their Internet Explorer browser toolbar. The San Diego, California-based company said the technology makes users' Web activity invisible to the Web sites they visit and to other prying eyes, such as collection companies specializing in compiling personal information. The company claims it also protects users from most pervasive security threats on the Internet."
