What you need to be concerned with are “contamination” and “leakage”. Those two terms are definitely something to keep in mind in your quest for anonymity.

It’s simple: everything you do online can be traced back to you in some way if you do not take precautionary measures to avoid being discovered. Since we’re talking about anonymity, let’s start with the first thing you use to get online — your computer.
