So if you travel for work, are heading off on vacation or just value your privacy, TAILS might be just what you need! Boot your USB drive on a hotel/Internet cafe computer, or on your notebook at a public WiFi hotspot, without fear of personal information being monitored or exposed. You can even keep in touch if you travel to countries that restrict Internet access or free speech. If you can boot from USB at work, you can even use it to get around employer internet restrictions and monitoring (looking for a new job?), even if it's just to satisfy your need to shop at work.
TAILS is designed for ease-of-use, with drop-down menus just like Windows, While easy to use, TAILS is no lightweight - it also comes preconfigured with a full Office Suite (Libre Office) and other productivity tools, as well as image and sound editor, etc., so you don't have to leave TAILS to get things done or relax with some entertainment.
For security reasons, TAILS can only be run live from a USB port and cannot be installed to your hard drive. It leaves no trace of your activity on the host computer.
