    I am asking what apps and services should one use to hide web browsing history from been recording, data, files from the world wide web at large.

    Even the latest firefox 4 demo videos states that while private browsing this does not prevent the ISP from keeping a history of web pages you visited, so regardless if you erase history and cookies they are still recorded FOREVER.

    Aside just browsing, what about files, 1passowrd seems to be rock solid with passwords and they have a great security forum., they also offer vault but again discourage using services like DropBox with Vault while it works fine with 1Password becuase the files are already encrypted.

    Any advise appreciated, cheers

    I'm curious to know what you are looking at that it has to be so secret. I'm pretty sure your ISP does not care what websites you are looking at unless it's bomb building or kiddy porn.

    Geeze and i though this was some facebook forum for a second, and i take it you have nothing to hide, you obviously dont pay for apple apps right, you dont have a itunes store account or credit card? lol


    Why not back up what you say and post all your ipads content online then :)

    I wont assume your a hypocrite and up to something for that remark if you say you have nothing to hide and show the world what you have.

    If you cant answer this question just dont post or flare.

    There is no way to completely conceal what you are doing from all network providers. Somebody has to look up host names for you and route your IP packets to their destination. You can of course use a VPN service, but then the VPN provider can see what you are doing.

    BTW, some countries have data retention laws mandating that certain communication data (such as email logs, requested URLs, or similar) have to be recorded and stored for a period of time. Network providers are also mandated by law to provide access to governments to perform "legal intercept". If you are paranoid about leaving traces, your only choice is to stop using electronic communications.
