Is it legal to help someone to be anonymous on internet?

Hi, few days ago my friend wanted to help with router setup (VPN, firewall, …) for better anonymity on internet. I don’t know for which type of sites he needs it, but if he will do something stupid, am I also responsible for that? From a legal point of view, is it okay? Of course, if someone will say, hey, I need to buy some drugs, how to be untraceable? I would say sorry, I can’t help with that.

Point is, I don’t want to be in a situation, where some police officer will tells me, that I commited a crime, because I helped with network setup or something.


Hey Igi,

No you are not responsible for the activities your friend engages in, regardless of whether you setup his network.

Hope this helps!
