Hi, Welcome to Internet Safety and Privacy where you will find information, guides and resources to help keep you safe, and protect your privacy online. Many people purchase security software to protect their computer systems and while this is an essential part of a responsible protection strategy; software does not even cover half the potential threats that are out there. Software alone cannot block some of the most dangerous online threats. Only by being aware of the threat and understanding how to avoid it can we begin to approach complete protection.

Want to safely create and manage multiple online Personas?

September 4, 2016

Want to use multiple online Personas?

In seconds you can be safely logged in as a different person.

what persona you want today

Persona is an anonymity tool that lets you create and manage multiple online personas or identities and easily switch between them while protecting your real identity.

There are many legitimate reasons to want to have an alternative online account but today Online Service Providers like Google and Facebook are actively working to identify and remove duplicate and fake accounts.

Persona helps you manage multiple online identities keeping them totally separate and allowing you to make each appear to be in a different location using a different device (PC, Mac, Linux, Tablet, smartphone etc).

Persona can be used by anyone that wants to safely operate an alternative online persona and reduce the risk of it being linked back to their real accounts and identity.

Why do you need a tool like Persona to create another account?

What most people do not reaslize is that its their computer or device that is automatically sending the websites you visit the information that links all your different accounts and enables them to identify any duplicate or fake profiles.

Persona fixes this by allowing you to create and easily manage multiple profiles and accounts, while keeping each quarantined from the others.

It also allows the accounts to appear to be in different locations using different devices (PC, Mac, Linux, Tablet, smartphone etc).

Change your Account

Each account is kept separate from the others with their own browsing history (cookies etc). This is important because if you attempt to operate multiple accounts using the same browser all the account will be linked by the online service providers who actively track and link different user accounts. It also protects

Change your Location

Your IP address shows your location. Persona allows each new persona to have a different location using automatic proxy switching which gives each a new IP address to match the location of the new persona.

Change your device

Your User Agent is a publicly visible description of the device you are using and is automatically send by your browser to each website you visit. Your browser will publish information about the make and model as well as the operating system of your device.

To make your multiple personas more credible, and reduce the chance of your different accounts  being linked, they need to appear to be on different devices. Persona also provides User Agent Switching which simply means that each persona can pretend to be using different devices, operating systems and browsers.


What are some of the legitimate reasons for creating and using a different online persona?
