    hi all. although i've been pretty involved with the protests and keeping myself informed, im not really compt savy so i need some help. I was talking to my cousin in tehran and he was saying how he could really use my help. two questions:

    is it safe for me to email my cousin back and forth (him emailing me) through a yahoo account? if not, how can i make it safe.

    second: he told me he needs a proxy. i was in iran last year and all i know is that it was a site that you typed in a url into and it took u to your desired site. my cousin has a pc. anything simple and effective i can give him?

    any help would be greatly appreciated it. my cousin and his friends are really involved (ages 17-19) and are desperate for info. if some would prefer my email to write me, just let me know. thank you guys and gals.
  2. private email trick?

    I have been communicating with a friend in Tehran via a gmail account that we both have the password for, and use only for this purpose. Instead of actually sending the email, we just save a draft. Then the other person can open the draft and delete it when finished, write another draft in response.

    I have no idea whether this trick is really safe -- I would appreciate hearing from someone with tech skills who can advise. But it might be good for your situation.

    You could place your messages in images with a freeware steganography program, although I'd suggest you try a few so you can find one that's easy to use. It's easy enough for deep packet inspection to see if there is a hidden message in an image, but breaking the code (even a simple one) probably wouldn't be a priority for this collapsing Iranian government.
