Anonabox is a very small, like 2.4 x 1.6 x 0.5 inches small, hardware that comes bundled with OpenWrt and Tor to offer anonymous Web browsing and Internet surfing to all traffic that passes through it.

OpenWrt is a free software operating system primarily used in home routers, while Tor (The Onion Router) is “free software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.”

It is designed to sit between your computer and your home router and route all traffic through Tor. At its size, two anonaboxes can fit inside a pack of cigarettes. Aside from wireless access, it also has Ethernet ports for wired access. Other features of the anonabox are:

  • 32-bit MT7620n processor gunning at 580 Mhz
  • Wifi security courtesy of WEP, WEP2 (personal and enterprise), WPA and RADIUS
  • 16 MB Flash ROM and 64 MB RAM
  • Power supply via USB

Anonabox is a Kickstarter-funded project that has managed to raise more than $376,482 USD from almost 6,000 backers. The developer had intended to raise just $7,500 USD, so that indicates a healthy demand for the device. More information about the device is available at You may also visit the Kickstarter page here.
