    How can not giving up your physical address not keep you safer online?? VPN and private networks clearly keep you safe , Thats how the top Illegal movie pirates never get caught , Or how the owner of silk road got away with what he was doing for so long , Cause they stayed hidden behind a vpn

    I would like to know what facts you have that make a VPN not safe when 99% of illegal stuff is done online via a VPN so the police and governments cant do shit . Like i said If VPN didnt hide your ass then piracy wouldn't exist as the MPA and other piracy organisation would pull the ip address of the guy making illegal copy's

    VPNs are a little like anonymous proxies... it's a case of how anonymous they are Some people just use a VPN to access content that they can not get in their country, no big issue if their are logs. Others use VPNs for more nefarious things, & they need 100% anonymity, VPN logs could expose them....

    One of the standard things before even looking at a vpn should be what type you want , Nothing that proper protects you is free . I used mine for years when i was connected to the "scene" and had the site server pumping out 500GB a day of illegal torrents ,in the 12 years managed to take down just about every other torrent site, AXXO Used a VPN for years before most even knew what one was and still to this day hasn't been caught ,

    TOR, IMHO, is too slow

    If it helps, the Opera browser has a VPN already built in and it's free. Everytime I use it, it seems to log into somewhere in Russia (you can convert back to English comrads )

    Opera's VPN is more like a proxy than a VPN...!

    Proton VPN or Tor or Orbot . I use it to surf the dark web occansionally . Multiple layers of protection . Nothing is 100% buuut its the best available .

    I suggest yall get a Proton email account also . Proton to proton user is unhackable ... its based in Switzerland .

    Doesn't 95% of the worlds internet travel to the Cornish coast . Where all or most of the cables meet and then get directed to the rest of the world. Doesn't gchq the nsa have direct contact/control of these ?
    If so can't they if wanted see everything?

    Hiding in plain sight is my preferred choice.
    If the security services want you do ya honestly think a £30 subscription to a vpn or whatever is going to stop them if ya on the radar you arse is there's

    With you there BG...if they want you...they'll get you regardless of where YOU think your IP is based...never have & never will use a VPN, all traffic is logged no matter what they tell you and if the relevant authorities push for it, they will hand it over

    I use a VPN to prevent my ISP from logging my history (when I remember to switch it on ) and also to bypass ISP filters to allow me access to Pirate Bay

    Whilst I agree that all traffic is logged, all they will see for me at the moment is my connection to my VPN rather than my connection to this site. All requests made through the VPN are SSL - whilst I won't say that SSL is uncrackable, I will say that, for the sheer effort & resources required to do so then 'they' would expect to be finding something a lot more than weed sites & torrents

    I've plucked low hanging fruit while in Afghanistan but everyone chases the cherry on top of the tree . Thinking it tastes sweeter sometimes the fruits that hide in the shadows of trees is the sweetest. Most peeps just stand on these as they look for the cherry . I'm not bothered either way if they want me they'd find me .
    I've lived in the shadows and hidden in plain sight and feel comfortable doing either

    Yea for sure . But the more nodes you bounce off . Plus bridging . Theyll have a hell a hard time . For weed they wont follow you .

    For political dissent , taxes .. hard drugs theyll try for years and eventually catch ya ... silk road been caught 3x now . No one is 100% safe really ...

    One guy that operated a huge drug site from the netherlands . His bitcoin account logged his unwashed deposit or something like that . while his vpn was down ... bang after 5yrs he was caught . Just takes one little fuck up and your done .
