Kickstarter Freezes Anonabox Privacy Router Project

Anonabox, the little box that purported to provide you privacy and peace of mind while surfing the Internet is no more. Kickstarter investigated claims that the Anonabox router was not what the maker claimed it to be and pulled the project on Friday afternoon after reaching 82 times the intended goal.

A review of the project uncovered evidence that it broke Kickstarter’s rules. Those rules prohibit offering purchased items and claiming to have made them yourself, presenting someone else’s work as your own and misrepresenting or failing to disclose relevant facts about the project or its creator.
