Tails (The Amnesic Incognito Live System) is a privacy-focused, Debian Based, Linux distribution designed to provide users complete anonymity, security, and privacy while browsing the internet and communicating online. It is a live operating system, which means it can be booted directly from a USB drive or DVD without the need for installation on the host machine unless given express permission from the user.
Privacy and Anonymity with Tor Network
Tails routes all internet traffic through the Tor network, ensuring users' online activities are anonymized and protected from surveillance and tracking by concealing the user's IP addresses.

Tails include built-in security features and encryption tools to safeguard user data and communications, ensuring secure communication and safeguarding sensitive information.
