Here's a few things you can do to separate yourself from your online identity:
- Use a completely different browser for surfing only on sites that is not linked to anything personal.
- When you're using your browser, do it in a virtual machine.
- All of the data on your laptop is encrypted or at least access to the virtual machine is restricted.
- Most importantly, connect to a VPN access point in another country. (This often costs money.)
- Use a series of proxies called "chained proxies".
- Buy prepaid 3G Internet access with money that can't be traced back to you.
- Avoid surfing from home or at least the same upstream Internet service provider you use for regular surfing.
- Do not use your private e-mails for anything you sign up for, use e.g., a fresh hushmail account.
- Never use nicknames that can be linked to you or real information about yourself on websites.
You don't have to use all of these, but if you use all of these then you're on the edge, of complete anonymous and almost untrackable Internet surfing. (Often some of the same tricks blackhats use.)
Use my advise responsibly and for legal activities only of course.
