+ - Tor Now Comes in a Box->

Daniel_Stuckey (2647775) writes "To your average internet user, the covert network of relays and whatchamacallits can come off as too complex and intimidating to bother with—even as people are increasingly concerned with their online privacy in light of the NSA scandal. So goes the thinking behind Safeplug, a new hardware adapter that basically puts Tor in a box. It takes 60 seconds and 50 bucks to plug the privacy box into your router, and you’re good to go, the company claims. Like anonymous browsing for dummies. The adapter comes from hardware company Pogoplug, which announced its new product yesterday and hopes it will bring Tor to the mass market by offering more consumer-friendly access. "We want to just take what is currently available today to a more technical crowd and democratize it, making it easier to use for an average user," CEO Dan Putterman told GigaOM ."
