Even though we do our best to offer you good tools to protect your privacy while using a computer, there is no magic or perfect solution to such a complex problem. Understanding well the limits of such tools is a crucial step to, first, decide whether Tails is the right tool for you, and second, make a good use of it. If the computer has been compromised by someone having physical access to it and who installed untrusted pieces of hardware like a keylogger , then it might be unsafe to use Tails. When starting your computer on Tails, it cannot be compromised by a virus in your usual operating system, but:. Tails should be installed from a trusted system. Otherwise it might be corrupted during installation. Plugging your Tails USB stick in a compromised operating system might corrupt your Tails installation, and destroy the protection that Tails provides. It is also impossible for Tails to protect against attacks made through the BIOS or other firmware embedded in the computer.
Tails , or The Amnesic Incognito Live System , is a security-focused Debian -based Linux distribution aimed at preserving privacy and anonymity. The system is designed to be booted as a live DVD or live USB , and will leave no digital footprint on the machine unless explicitly told to do so. The Tor Project has provided financial support for its development in the beginnings of the project.
