About

Creating and using a fake account is not as easy as most people think ...that is if you don't want to risk having your real identity exposed!
Creating and using a fake account is not as easy as most people think ...that is if you don't want to risk having your real identity exposed!

How to create an Online Alter-ego, Alias, Pseudonym, Pen name or Nom de plume

and keep your real identity hidden!

The internet has become an increasingly dangerous place.

  • Cybercrime and Identity theft are exploding.
  • Our personal information is being collected and sold.
  • Governments around the world are spying on their citizen online activity.
  • Trolls, cyber bullies and stalkers can destroy your reputation and life.
  • Online sickos and sexual predators are constantly lurking.
  • The politically correct thought police are ready to pounce.
  • Freedom of speech is under attack from censorship

It is possible to reclaim your online privacy and better protect yourself and your family from all these online threats.

BUT there is no software that is magically going to do this for you.

Internet security software including VPN’s are tools that can help make you safer BUT without knowing how to properly use these, and without taking some additional and often very simple precautions,

People have lost their jobs and much worse from having their real identity exposed online

Why I Created Online Alter-ego and the guiding principles behind it.

STRETCH GOAL #1: 

> $50,000

WEB BROWSER PLUGIN WITH ALTER-EGO CREATION TOOL

Create a Web browser plugin that incorporates the following:

  • Create a Web browser plugin that incorporates the following:
  • Alter-ego selection - load the alter-ego you wish to use Access credentials - securely access the passwords used by your alter-ego
  • Security settings - ensure that the browsers security settings are configured correctly
  • User Agent selection - allows you to disguise the device you are using to connect to the internet. You might be using a desktop and can make it look like you are using a specific model tablet or phone.
  • Anonymity check - the plugin will check and confirm that some form of IP masking is in place to disguise your location before going online
  • Profile integrity - endure your alter-ego is not linked with other profiles by managing internet cache, history including cookies and tracking pixels.
  • Security Alert - the browser will issue relevant security alerts.
  • Alter-ego creation tool - a standalone tool that assists you to create and manage your alter-ego profiles

No information about security settings or alter-egos will be stored in the browser. This information will be securely stored in a file you will save to a location known only to you. It can be stored on removable media, secure cloud storage or on a hidden encrypted file on your system.

A FREE version of the browser plugin will be made available for general internet users but there will be some improved functionality and security options only available for subscribers.

Delivery: Work on this stretch goal will commence immediately after completion of the guide and is to be completed within six months from that date.

STRETCH GOAL #2: 

> $100,000

CUSTOM WEB BROWSER

Create a custom modified web browser based on an existing open source browser.

The browser will include all of the features of the WEB BROWSER PLUGIN plus full integration of the Alter-ego Security & Privacy Panel.

A major feature of the browser will be that it will not need to be installed on the operating system and will function stand-alone so that it can be securely stored off-line while not in use.

A FREE version of the custom browser will be made available for general internet users but there will be some improved functionality and security options only available for subscribers.

Delivery: Work on this stretch goal will commence immediately after completion of stretch goal #1 and is to be completed within six months from that date.

How Will The Money Be Spent

The following cost breakdown estimate is based on the target amount of $25,000 USD for delivery of the online guide.

Risks and challenges

TECHNOLOGY AND RESOURCES

We do not anticipate any technical or resourcing challenges with this project. We have a solid understanding of technologies involved, and extensive experience with projects of a similar scope and complexity. The development work will be undertaken by The Virtual Webmaster using an experienced development team I have previously worked with. The team includes full stack developer, integration specialist, front-end developer, graphic artists, content creators, editor and other resources as required.

PROJECT DELAYS

I have corporate training and experience in IT Project management and understand the development cycle. I will be personally micro-managing every aspect of the project and I am confident that we will deliver a working system in the specified time. We will provide weekly progress reports.

WEBSITE & DATA SECURITY

We will implement best practices with regard to website security including using an EV SSL certificate, CDN, external firewall with DDOS mitigation and a number of other security measures.

The risk of a data breach or being legally compelled to reveal subscriber information is mitigated because we will not collect or store any information about our subscribers or the alternative identities they might create, so there is no potential for a data breach or for us to be forced to reveal subscriber information.

POTENTIAL FOR ABUSE

We have heard concerns that fake accounts can be used for nefarious purposes. We have looked at 5 key areas of concern and show that using an Online Alter-ego will actually reduce the threat and make people safer.
If you have concerns please watch this video: https://youtu.be/UQLnLf7CCZo

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

There are no guarantees when it comes to online privacy and anonymity and we recognise the huge responsibility of providing security advice. Our biggest challenge will be to ensure that people fully understand this and accept the risk of using the information provided in the guide. Our Terms of Use and disclaimer will not be fine print on the bottom of the page, but instead will be prominently featured and reinforced throughout the guide.
