They Know a lot

The big issue you have with becoming and staying anonymous is many faceted and electronic communication is only part of the equation, abiet a large one.

Everything is electronically catalogued, medical, property, vehicle registration, tax, utility, financial and identification records are all cataloged and available with and without warrants and probable cause. Both state actors and non-state actors are actively attempting to locate, record and exploit these records for their own use.

So like the zebras, it is best to simply not be noticed by the lions, who can see the entire herd, but search only for the weak, the old, the young and the sick to prey upon individually. Government is similar, they focus not on the whole herd, but on the outliers. Making yourself completely invisible isn't really possible, however blending in with the herd and being "gray" is possible.

They find what they can find

So the worst case, is for some reason, "they" are looking for you. Obviously anything in the public record associated with you; mortgage, business licenses, tax records, e-mails and text messages, everyone you have ever called and anything you have ever bought is going to be available and more. Social media is a given, library records, Netflix and some GPS location data, etc.

The Uni-Bomber was hard to locate because he was completely off the grid and had lived like a caveman for sometime before coming to the attention of the authorities. If he hadn't demanded that his manifesto be published, he may have escaped justice. Once enough of his "work" was able to be read, his family identified him and the FBI was able to locate him and his cabin in the woods.

You are not You

Using trust, corporations and other entities both U.S. and foreign can be used to mask, confuse and delay people who may be searching for you, your property and assets. Tons of information is on the internet about this type of "disappearing", usually to hide from Ex-wives and/or the Tax man.

This is a good start, but its not going to protect you from the FBI/NSA, etc. Staying off their radar screen and being a normal "Zebra" may be all that you need to do.

Sometimes, trying to hide, gets you on their lists, so be careful. Going into a Best Buy Store and asking them to remove all the mics and cameras from your computers, TV's etc. is probably going to get them to report you, just to be on the safe side. Doing business with a Mom & Pop store or just buying the cheaper versions that don't have cameras and mics, might be a better way to go.

Good Luck
