If you are surfing the web via JonDo using JonDoFox, your IP address and the characteristics of your browser are anonymized. But you should in any case pay attention to the following notes while surfing, because otherwise JonDonym is not able to protect you:

A How-To for downloading videos with [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/unplug/ UnPlug] may be found in our [https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/en/help/jondofox2.html online help] as this add-on is part of our JonDoFox Profile. [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/video-downloadhelper/ Video DownloadHelper] may be used as well. In order to do so, go to a website where your video is located (e.g. youtube.com) and if one is available for download the Video DownloadHelper icon left to the URL bar gets colored and rotating. If you click on the drop down icon (see image below) a menu will popup containing the available formats of the video. Select one and save it to disk.

==== Download videos with aTube Catcher ====
 +
For Windows, there exists an excellent freeware program called [http://atube-catcher.dsnetwb.com/ aTube Catcher] for download YouTube videos and from many other websites too. You may configure this program for JonDo by activating the HTTP proxy in aTube Catcher in Tools->Connection settings and setting it to Host: 127.0.0.1 and Port: 4001.
  
Using Edit->Preferences (key combination: Strg+K), you should disable various functions of your Adobe Reader in order to secure it against hackers.
+
'''Warning:''' Do not use the ''"Play"'' function of aTube catcher for watching videos without download. This will break out the proxy and you are deanonymized. You may use a [https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/en/help/proxifier2.html proxyfier tool] like ''Proxyfier'' or ''ProxyCap'' to avoid this issue.

==== Anonymous server maintenance with WinSCP ====
 +
WinSCP is a Windows program for the secure data transfer from and to a server. At the menu item "Proxy", just enter the connection data for JonDo (Proxy host name=127.0.0.1, Port number=4001) and choose "Login". You should now see in JonDo that the program transfers encrypted data.

==== Proxy-compliant applications (HTTP/SOCKS) ====
 +
In principle you may use JonDo with every Internet application where you can enter an HTTP-proxy in the settings. The default values for enabling the proxy are as follows:
  
<span id="Disposable e-mail addresses">'''Disposable e-mail addresses'''</span>
+
* Hostname/IP address: localhost (or 127.0.0.1)
 +
* Port: 4001
  
If you are using one and the same address more then once in order to send or receive your e-mail, you are "creating" an identity with it. In the following you will find some web services which you may use to quickly switch your e-mail pseudonym:
+
Some premium mix services offer in addition to the HTTP proxy interface a SOCKS proxy interface as well. However, the HTTP interface is preferable over SOCKS if the respective Internet application is supporting it.
  
''Sending e-mails from disposable addresses''
+
''Be cautious if you are using the SOCKS interface''
  
If you want to send e-mails, but do not want to reveal your identity to the addressee or a third party, the best thing is using the remailer interface provided by the German Privacy Foundation (click here). If the addressee has a contact form on his web-site, of course, you may use rather this one.
+
Please, if you are using a SOCKS proxy make always sure that the respective application is resolving the DNS name via the SOCKS proxy. Because otherwise information about the servers which you contacted via JonDo will be transmitted to the DNS servers together with your IP address. Should the configuration of your SOCKS application neither be specified in this wiki nor in the [http://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/en/help/thunderbird.html help], please check if it is leaking DNS using a personal firewall or tools like [http://www.wireshark.org/ Wireshark]. If you do not know what to do with these terms it would be better if you were not using SOCKS.

''Receiving e-mails to disposable addresses''

If you are registering on web-forums you often have to leave an e-mail address in order to get a confirmation. If you do not want to use your own e-mail address for it, you may use rather one of the following temporary PO boxes:

With [http://www.hushmail.com/ Hushmail] you can prevent the details of your e-mail communication being left behind on servers and/or computers of your communication partners. Above all this is useful if the addressees of your e-mails are using web accounts which are never deleted, like GoogleMail. At least the e-mail provider cannot trace your communication then. Act as follows:
+
 
+
* Set up an e-mail account (account A) in order to receive e-mails (do NOT use Hushmail now, as otherwise Hushmail would be able to observe your long-term communication, which is just what we want to prevent).
+
* Access account A regularly via JonDo using your e-mail programm or your browser.
+
* Set up a new [https://www.hushmail.com/ Hushmail] account (account B) for every addressee who is sending you an e-mail to account A. You may now access this account via JonDo as well, as long as you need it.
+
* Answer the addressee only via account B. He is getting now a link. If he is clicking on it, he may write you back directly using the Hushmail web site (HTTPS-encrypted).
+
* Account B will be deleted automatically if you are not accessing it for three weeks. With it your communication is gone as well, unless your addressee has saved or printed the Hushmail web sites.
+
 
+
If your conversation partner is also using Hushmail, however, he keeps your messages. You should [http://www.gpg4win.org/ encrypt your messages using GPG] additionally, ([http://getfiregpg.org/install.html best directly in your web browser]) in order to make the access of a third party more difficult.

Be cautious if you are using the SOCKS interface

Please, if you are using a SOCKS proxy make always sure that the respective application is resolving the DNS name via the SOCKS proxy. Because otherwise information about the servers which you contacted via JonDo will be transmitted to the DNS servers together with your IP address. Should the configuration of your SOCKS application neither be specified in this wiki nor in the help, please check if it is leaking DNS using a personal firewall or tools like Wireshark. If you do not know what to do with these terms it would be better if you were not using SOCKS.
