I guess it was only a matter of time that the Snowden revelations would in turn give rise to businesses developing anti-NSA gizmos. Case in point, the Safeplug, an internet appliance you simply plug into your network and that, once activated, redirects all your traffic through the Tor anonymous network.

You wouldnt post your home address just anywhere online. So why give it out to every website you visit? When you browse the Internet, every site you visit knows your IP address (a unique number that identifies your computer on the Internet) which can easily reveal your physical location and home address. This information could be accessed, hacked or even sold, exposing your identity and location to unknown parties and putting your family at risk. With Safeplug, you can effectively stop websites from knowing or logging who you are and where you live. Safeplug sets up in 60 seconds and allows you to use your existing web browser, and even your phone, to browse the Internet with complete anonymity and peace of mind.
