At Lazy Girl Tips, we understand that activists and independent journalists or whistleblowers are often subject to harassment or threats to their safety. We also understand that average, everyday citizens who are trying to “think differently” may not want their personal information spread across the web, especially in the face of large data mining operations where a user’s identity is sold to advertisers. We recognize that the right to privacy and anonymity is vitally important to a free society and the freedom of expression.
