Ever wish you could protect your browsing sessions from prying eyes without having to use a complicated privacy tool? With NinjaStik, it is definitely possible! NinjaStik is a USB based privacy solution which anonymizes your online sessions and offers total protection from surveillance, monitoring and snooping. The anonymity solution is brought to you by a Toronto based company which was established in 2011 and started offering security solutions in 2012.

What Is NinjaStik?

NinjaStik is a bootable USB stick which offers privacy for activities like browsing, instant messaging and emailing (but not for torrenting). The solution uses the power of Tor to hide your IP address and make your online activities invisible on the internet. NinjaStik also offers plenty of storage space to save your files and even encrypts them so that they remain unreadable even if you happen to lose the USB stick. The solution is designed to work in such a way that it doesn’t leave any trace of your internet access or browsing activity on your computer.

How Does NinjaStik Work?

Using a NinjaStik is as simple as plugging a USB stick into your computer. The drive comes loaded with Lubuntu operating system (a modified version of Ubuntu) which ensures that your computer boots up from the USB drive and not from your hard disk. The boot up process is extremely fast and you should be up and running in less than a minute.

Apart from the operating system, NinjaStik includes preconfigured Firefox browser, an email client (Enigmail with OpenPGP encryption), PDF reader and a file browser to access files that are already present on your computer. The stick even includes a secure Bitcoin wallet to help you store your crypto currencies in a secure way. The solution features an easy to use desktop and it can run on most Windows and Mac based computers.

As far as the security features are concerned, NinjaStik protects your privacy by encrypting all traffic, data files and even bookmarks with a strong 256 bit encryption. What’s more, the customized Lubuntu OS used in the drive is extremely secure so it remains impervious to security threats even if you happen to visit malware infected sites. The drive also includes a password protection feature (passcodes can be changed) so it cannot be used by your friends or colleagues by accident. And if anyone happens to plug NinjaStik into a computer that is already turned on, they will not see any files at all. The drive software even auto-updates itself so that you remain safe from the latest security threats lurking on the web.

The only drawback associated with NinjaStik is that it uses Tor to anonymize online sessions. While Tor provides agreeable level of privacy for most online activities, it is not really an unbreachable privacy solution. However, if you are looking for an anonymity tool which can protect you from ISP based surveillance, network monitoring as well as common man-in-the-middle type of attacks then NinjaStik would definitely be a good option for you.
