Lovers of computer security taken to the extreme are in luck. Tails, Edward Snowden's favorite operating system, you already have a new version available. This is Tails 3.2, a distribution that continues to bet on security at its best.
Tails 3.2 among other things, you have updated your Kernel to version 4.12, thus achieving greater compatibility with new hardware components, as well as ensuring up-to-date and therefore secure support.
However, its main novelty is the addition of the possibility of connecting to the internet via PPPoE and phone line connections or Dial Up. In addition, the problems brought by the Florence on-screen keyboard have been fixed or rather, Florence has been replaced by the Gnome on-screen keyboard, which has no problem.
Finally, all programs have been updated to their latest version, such as the Thunderbird mail client, in addition to correcting some bugs, such as one related to the handling of secret keys. The only downside is that with the new features, the operating system must now run on a pendrive of at least 8 GB, instead of the 4 GB of the previous versions. However, I don't think this will be a problem in the middle of 2017.
With this update, no doubt Tails remains one of the most secure operating systems in the world if your goal is to surf the internet without being detected. Tails is known for using networks such as Tor or freenet, internet networks that are accessed through an anonymous IP and whose links are not indexed by search engines.
Despite the bad reputation of these networks, mainly due to people using them illegallyNot a few have switched to this type of system, in order to avoid excessive control by governments and companies on the Internet issue. These people don't do anything illegal, but they don't want to be controlled, so they use operating systems like Tails to be free of that control.
If you want to download Tails, you can do it from your Official Site, in which there is also a complete tutorial that you should follow if you don't want to miss any details about how it works.
