Privacy and anonymity on the Internet are no longer an expectation on the Internet. If you don’t want somebody snooping through your traffic, you have to work for it. Unfortunately, encrypting your connection through a VPN can sometimes be a little too complicated for your average user. That’s where Don’t Snoop Me Bro comes in.
Don’t Snoop Me Bro, a startup out of Somerville, Massachusetts, recently announced their first product – the DSMB Tunnel. It’s a little red box that becomes an OpenVPN tunnel by simply turning a key. It’s billed as the easiest way possible to ensure your anonymity online.
So, how does this all work? It works just like any other VPN service, but with the added benefit of having the hardware automatically encrypt your traffic so you don’t have to. As an added benefit, the DMSB Tunnel comes with a year of free VPN service with endpoints expected to be available in the following countries: UK, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, South Africa, US, Russia, Ukraine, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Brazil, Chile and Mexico.
Encryption hardware isn’t exactly known for being cheap though. How much is all this going to cost you? The team’s goal is to be able to sell the DSMB Tunnel at $150. Right now, however, they’re running a special deal on their Indiegogo page that will net you a DSMB Tunnel for only $130.

Don’t Snoop Me Bro is just the latest company to emerge in the wake of the NSA revelations to promise anonymity online. In fact, John McAfee, creator of the McAfee anti-virus software, has been talking about a new start up called Future Tense that promises to deliver an Internet that “solves all of our security concerns.”[Image: Don’t Snoop Me Bro/Indiegogo]
