  • Be Anonymous

    Some of the anonymous advice here is pretty poor and recommends centralized services that require some level of identification.

    If you actually need to be anonymous the daunting but doable tactics on https://anonymousplanet.org/ are a much better bet.

  • Where can I learn about *everything* that could be used to track me online.

    There is no single resource, but personally this is the most comprehensive I know of: https://anonymousplanet.org/

    Said you shouldn't download Signal because it makes you stand out and attracts attention. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWMZ17Iyu3o Said that you shouldn't use ANY two factor because they're designed to track you, even software 2FA. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChKpf5HjcSY (He also says in this video that it's okay to let Google collect data about you as long as they don't tie it to a real world identity, even though the more data you give Google, the easier they can ID you.) Said that you should keep a "real identity" where you "pretend to be a sheep." Make Google searches for things you don't believe in, post tweets/statuses that you don't actually believe but perpetuate the prevailing narrative. AKA: look like you agree with the masses. Meanwhile, keep a second anonymous identity. (Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8lHsIf6aA8) This is incredibly stupid. First, it doesn't work (source: https://lifehacker.com/generating-a-bunch-of-internet-noise-isnt-going-to-hi-1793898833), second you can easily burn an "anonymous" identity by accident and now it's linked to your real identity. True digital anonymity is almost (not 100%, but damn near) impossible. (Source: https://anonymousplanet.org/) His entire VPN video is just riddled with bullshit like saying that VPNs block email, block monetization, and that it's better to use a server in the US because of 4th Amendment Protections (worked so well in the past, right?) (Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHfVPgLMMUQ). He then goes on to sell a "VPN router" in his shop that routes all your traffic over Tor - which means that your home internet may be slow, many common websites will probably block you, and as soon as you sign into anything you've lost all anonymity.
  • Is Rob Braxman legit? Is he a fear monger?

  • Set up my own VPN | How to use it the right way?
    1 project | /r/VPN | 29 Dec 2021
    Oh I thought bit launch was some bit exchange/management company or software, so I guess you see why I was telling you to isolated it to an incognito session+VPN. When you exit an incognito session it wipes all cookies, browser storage, etc for that session. However, I think you have to completely close the session, if you have more tabs open that data is probably still around until you completely close the browser. That's why if you use a second browser you're even more safe because you will think of it as a separate "thing" in your mind and be sure to manage it separately. Tor browser is a notch above that. If you don't resize it, you look like a million other tor-browser sessions (yes your browser reports it's "size" back to servers so they can figure out how to space things, and lots of times to finger print you). VPN gives you another layer in that it hides your IP (make sure to go to dnsleak.com and make sure you dns queries aren't leaking to your ISP's nameserver). This document is a bit paranoid, but I feel it has some good info and more than I am gonna type lol. https://anonymousplanet.org/ take from it what you need.

  • I know that the most popular question is about TOR + VPN and it's get the 1k answer about it, BUT i received an email from ExpressVPN which says about "more ways to protect your privacy", so is it just ad or truth?
