  • In modern society, traditional values are discouraged. Sacraments are almost forgotten while the occult is increasingly hip. So many cօռspιʀαcιҽs have led to the decline of society and civilization, as well as a general crisis in faith. These things foster terrorism.
    But sadly, truth have became hate speech. Many groups fighting for the good old values of our grandfathers' lives are considered hate groups. And this is the point when the God-players come in.

  • The last time I visited a site someone posted on this forum I got a blue screen crash.
    At least tell us what it is you are linking to.

  • It's a prepper site. It gives instructions on opting out surveillance programs.
    Also, I forgot to mention that the NSA is trying to crack up Tor. See the "Tor stinks" presentation.
    @soulguard Also, switch to Linux. It's inherently BSoD-free.

  • Run Tails and verify its checksum using multiple sources:

    https://tails.boum.org/

    Use the TrueCrypt and Tor Bridges options; keep everything (including your TrueCrypt container) on a bootable AES drive.  (Just read the Tails documentation.)  Spoof your MAC address, use Open Source BIOS, buy your hardware αnσnymσusly from third-party sources (WalMart, Best Buy, etc.) and pay with cash only, maintain the physical security of your hardware at all times, beware of keyloggers and other hardware exploits, surf from αnσnymσus Wi-Fi hot spots, disable all hardware options that you don't need (autoplay, FireWire, etc.), etc.  Use all the available Tails options and programs, and don't have a "knee-jerk" reaction when upgrading Tails.

    Jehanne, how does Tails compare to Cryptohippie (Cryptogroup)?   Thank you for your time and expertise.

    They're a VPN, one of many.  They'll protect your anonymity from casual "IP snooping" but not from malicious Java scripting and/or other programs which simply "leak" your IP address.  They may keep logs, they may not, regardless of what they affirm or deny.  The good thing about them is that they, like the others, are robust, which means that you can simply "point" almost any program (browser, email, P2P, torrent, etc.) at them and they will provide a proxy for your IP, assuming, of course, that your true IP does not "leak."  On the other hand, the Tor Browser, Tails, JonDonym, etc., will force all of your browser traffic through a mix network of relays; for JonDonym, at most a dozen or so such relays (most of which are in Germany), and for Tor, at least several thousand such relays scattered all across the globe.  On the other hand, it is difficult to "point" some applications at Tor and get things to work correctly; for instance, Tor does not and will not process UDP packets, only TCP/IP.  Tails is meant to bundle all applications which are compatible with Tor, and as Tails (along with the Tor Browser) is completely open-source (unlike most VPNs, which are closed-source), it is less likely that Tails is going to be infected with some malware and/or backdoor, provided, of course, that you are verifying signature files, running regular virus scans, using good computer security practice, etc.

    In short, a VPN will serve you well and you only really need Tails if a TLA ("three-letter agency") is investigating you for something or if you live in an oppressive country (which are full of TLAs) or if you just value your privacy while be online and do not want members of your own household looking at your browsing history, Internet caches, "sniffing" your router traffic, running keyloggers (a big one), etc., which is probably very rare anyway, but is certainly possible!

  • You are most kind to provide a great explanation.  We're recent to Crypto and have been very pleased, esp w/ email.
    I'm exploring Tails now, thanks to your post.

    God bless you for your help, as usual.  I learn much from your comments.

  • You could also use QuickSilver Lite for your emails:

    http://www.quicksilvermail.net/qslite/

    GPG4WIN, which is open-source and free, will provide excellent email encryption:

    Tails, of course, has its own encryption programs.

  • Be wary of Windows. It came to my attention the M$ deleted Tor Browser from a lot of computers running Windows 8.

    Am I the only one on CI for whom this thread is completely incomprehensible?  What's an IP--other than something that might leak?  A Tor Browser?  
    Clueless  :dancing-banana:!
     St. Francis Xavier threw a Crucifix into the sea, at once calming the waves.  Upon reaching the shore, the Crucifix was returned to him by a crab with a curious cross pattern on its shell.

    Its not all incomprehensible to me, but I don't go through the extent of most here to surf the web. Its impossible.

    No.  It's incomprehensible to me as well, though I know that the IP is the way the internet knows where to send all the information to your computer.  It's an internet address.  If you didn't have one, when you went to a website, the website wouldn't know where to send the screen images to.  That's the only thing I understood on this whole topic!

    Just don't ask me where the IP address comes from.  I think your internet provider gives it to you.

    If you download TAILS, it does all of these things automatically. So you don't have to worry whether you are running the Tor Browser without getting compromised. So its a nice easy download to make things easy for you :P without having to be a geek. Hope that helps.
