"Privacy isn't about hiding bad things, but about protecting what defines us as human beings, who we are. Our day-to-day behavior, our personality, our fears, our relationships, and our vulnerabilities."
-- The Tor Project
@fribbledom tor doesn’t protect by itself. Get a paid vpn then get on tor. If possible use a separate machine with some old Mac card.
@vikramjeetsinghparmar May I ask why? As far as I know Tor works exactly the same as a VPN, just with more than one server.
Also: "use a separate machine with some old Mac card" Yeah, for Snowden-level stuff, you probably need to use a separate machine. Tracking these days is getting rather out of hand...
What makes you think a VPN improves the situation?
@vikramjeetsinghparmar @fribbledom Tor + decent opsec provides sufficient protection against most non-targeted invasions of privacy. If your ISP/opponent will target you for merely using Tor, that's when a VPN can help. But of course it only moves the trust from your ISP to your VPN provider, and won't stop an ISP who will target you for using a VPN
There's not universal advice here. Know your threat model.
