    In addition to ToR (while definitely using an obfsproxy), consider communicating with other people using encrypted chat. Tox is e2e encrypted and completely decentralized, and there are a few different clients you can use. qTox is one that works well. Signal is also completely e2e encrypted, and works much nicer on mobile devices, but it's centralized, so might be easier to block access to. Also consider using a VPN for most of your daily usage. Cryptostorm is a good choice to use that respects your privacy. You can use ToR on top of a VPN connection to hide the fact that you're using ToR from your ISP, and to hide your network usage from even the VPN provider itself.
  • How can I add bootstrap nodes alongside with the default ones?
    It would depend on your client. For qTox, see the avoiding censorship part of our user manual. Custom bootstrap nodes was only (re-)added since the last release, so to get that editable json file you would need to update to a nightly build. If you want to stick with the same version, you could update the json file yourself in the source directory and recompile.
  • Qtox will not let me upload files
    We have a FAQ as part of the qTox Wiki, but neither seem to cover the general use case like this. It would be good to add some general "first use" kind of documentation.
    Which version / system ? You should probably open an issue here
