Privacy Hose works by overwhelming search engines and advertisers with deceptive, misleading, and useless information. After you install Privacy Hose and the program starts, you are only three simple steps away from masking your online behavior. First, sign in with your email address and the product key you received via email. This verifies your subscription and allows Privacy Hose to download a list of websites and search terms to mask your online behavior. It also allows Privacy Hose to routinely update the list so Privacy Hose can stay current and respond to changes in the tactics search engines and advertisers use to track you. Once you have signed in, the next step is to select your noise level. The default value will be perfect for most users. If you spend every waking moment on the Internet, then move the slider to the right to increase the amount of noise Privacy Hose will generate. If you only use the Internet once or twice a day you can move the slider to the left to reduce the amount of noise generated. After you have selected your noise level, press the Apply My Settings button. That’s it. Sign in, select your noise level, and apply your settings.
