What is This?

Based on Squawk, a Noise-as-a-Service project for Australians, this project provides a similar service for US citizens. By adding as much noise as possible to your users traffic, it aims to make it as worthless as possible to potential buyers.


Deploying randomnoise.us is achieved simply by adding the following line to your web site:

<script async src="//randomnoise.us/js/squawk.js"></script>

Deploying this code will cause your web site visitors to make a single request to a random IP address, for every request that you serve with the script tag, in order to add noise to the logs being kept by ISPs.
