Whenever you change from one website to another, SaferSurf deletes the referrer information from the data stream. This makes it impossible for the service being called up to know where you are coming from, and it prevents spies from figuring it out. In addition, you surf with the IP address of the SaferSurf server. You are virtually incognito.
The right to anonymity of internet users is controversial. According to heise online, two thirds of users want to surf the web incognito. On the other hand it is necessary to categorize internet users according to the last sites they visited and their dial-in location.
There are different methods of obtaining user information. The most commonly known of these are cookies and IP address analysis. A new method is to create personal user profiles using so called Trackers, Web Spies or Web Bugs. These are small graphics on web pages that allow the recording of an entire internet session.
SaferSurf not only deletes additional information from the referrer, it also provides a list of known “eavesdroppers”. When one of those uses a tracker, it is blocked by SaferSurf. The coordination of several SaferSurf features ensures your privacy on the web.
SaferSurf makes it impossible to determine a connection between individual sets of data, e.g. between several websites visited. The “eavesdropper” sees an individual user surfing the web without any discernable pattern, as if they were using thousands of web browsers. Thus, they get a user profile which is completely useless.
