If freedombox follows the same concepts and software that TOR does why not just download the TOR browser at
and run an anonymous browser in either virtual box
or real computer environment? Your IP changes every 10 minutes too so you are hopping all over the globe literally :-) Makes it almost impossible to trace.
Also one word of warning I never at this time login to any sites that require user name and PW because the exit node can harvest and save all the UN & PW's. There was a case in Europe about this.

... or apply technology to defend against them:
What is FreedomBox?
* Email and telecommunications that protects privacy and resists
* A publishing platform that resists oppression and censorship.
* An organizing tool for democratic activists in hostile regimes.
* An emergency communication network in times of crisis.
FreedomBox will put in people's own hands and under their own control
encrypted voice and text communication, anonymous publishing, social
networking, media sharing, and (micro)blogging.
Much of the software already exists: onion routing, encryption,
virtual private networks, etc. There are tiny, low-watt computers
known as "plug servers" to run this software. The hard parts is
integrating that technology, distributing it, and making it easy to
use without expertise. The harder part is to decentralize it so
users have no need to rely on and trust centralized infrastructure.
That's what FreedomBox is: we integrate privacy protection on a cheap
plug server so everybody can have privacy. Data stays in your home
and can't be mined by governments, billionaires, thugs or even
With FreedomBoxes in their homes, anybody, regardless of technical
skill, can easily enjoy secure, private, even anonymous
