Have you ever wish to login websites without providing your private information or ever wished to watch videos without showing your true identity? Or you want to comment anonymously by hiding your IP address? For many websites that we generally encounter on the daily basis, the answer should be yes, at least in my case.
There are many factors that force users to avoid login process. Maybe he doesn’t want to share his personal info with the website or he is too lazy in filling forms or he has no surety over the security policies of the particular website. Whatever, the point is, sometimes users hate to login websites via sharing their private information.
In this article, we will take a look at what is anonymous login or authentication and how it saves users from sharing their information?
What is it?
Anonymous login is a solution that allows users to access online resources (websites and applications) without prompting users to create new username and password. That means users can access the services anonymously.
How anonymous browsing works?
It works by encrypting traffic before it is sent out or received over the internet. There are anonymous browsing packages that encrypt IP addresses of the both originating and destination traffic. No one can discover the origin and destination of the traffic and thus the approach prevents from tracing of the user.
The browsing packets are encrypted, even they are misrouted, they still remain unread. These packets are passed through several and random servers on the browsing networks until they reached the destination.
Anonymous authentication has several benefits. For businesses, it helps them to keep notes on competitors, a journalist can use the approach to report news and stories, normal users can keep their privacy secure using an anonymous method of authentication.
Anonymous browsing method not only takes care of privacy but also makes the authentication simple and quick.
