    Are you familiar with Whonix? Whonix is a Linux desktop dedicated to absolute security and privacy. Learn how to use this unique take on the desktop operating system.

    In today's world, security and privacy have become incredibly important to both businesses and consumers. For some, it doesn't seem to matter what we do as there's always a security risk lurking around the corner. To that end, we go to all lengths to secure the desktop platforms we use. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    If you've reached the point where you have tasks that require the most secure and private desktop you can find, where do you turn? You could give Whonix a try. Whonix takes a very different approach to desktop security. Instead of a single operating system, you actually work with two virtual machines—one as a gateway and the other as a desktop. The gateway works with the Tor network to ensure security and privacy. With this one-two punch, you can be sure everything you do on the desktop is anonymized.
