We gave them 1984 without even a shot fired. We willingly gave it up for ease of access and ignorance. 

Dude 1984 was in operation before 1984. We just live in a surveillance society now. The book just makes fun of us, by saying this could happen. When in reality it was already taken place. The technology these days make it so much simple compared to the Acorn PC's etc

So VPN hides what country you are in yeah? What if you use it on a 'Smatphone.' Will the GPS on your phone give your location away or does it mask that as well?

I've heard that VPNs are too easily intercepted, making them useless for anyone who's actively being sought by government or law enforcement, and unnecessary for anyone who's not. The person who told me this said VPNs are virtually useless because they only scramble your location once, and that the only way to be REALLY secure is to get TAILs.

Of course, this is mostly Greek to me. Any opinions from those in the know?

I have a cousin that used to work in black ops.....He told me in no uncertain terms that if they want you, they get you.  It doesnt matter if you take the battery out of your phone, turn your phone off or anything like that.  He said they can track you in so many ways that we dont know about and will never know.   Just remember......we only see probably 10% of the available technology the govt uses to keep tabs on us.    We cant hide anywhere if we want too.  The only way would be to walk into the woods and live completely off the grid with no contact with the outside world.  Even then if they wanted to find you they probably can.  The way I look at it is too live my life out in the open and act like a regular guy.  I do not have any smart devices because they freak me out and not because of their surveillance capabilities, they just freak me out.  I dont have facebook and I dont post on any social media.   I also dont try to hide my footsteps with a myriad of security protocols because they dont work.   In my mind, it also raises suspicion if anyone were interested in me,  to see me hiding all my digital footsteps.  All these companies that provide us with vpns, and other security measures probably sub contract with the government so they arent exactly helping us.   Hide in plain sight is my mantra.   Also having a name that is very similar to a corporate exec at a tech company helps.   If you google me,  I dont show up anywhere.  My doppelganger does and he gets al the pub.   I think if you just use your head and dont do anything ridiculous you should be ok.

Well Tails which is like Tor Browser but more complicated and has it's own O.S. Built in it's not easy to learn to use it. The Tor Browser can be Hacked by Europol hence all the Darknet Busts recently and they won't tell anyone how they are doing it since they want to keep doing it lol. The Tor Browser can't be used for DBG otherwise it would be superior over a VPN which makes Me feel nearly almost naked being on this Website with only NordVPN EK!!

  That and the Fact a family Member Purchased NordVPN is only reason I use it is for this Website and Hiding my Torrent Activity and that's only reason to buy a VPN in the end for to hide the Fact your Torrenting from your ISP since even using UTorrent's or any other Bitorrent's "Protocol Encryption: Forced does not hide your activity from ISP anymore.

Choosing to use Gmail and no VPN is basically maximum potential risk you put yourself at ( for no reason ) and with a company (google) who has all your emails...who directly shares with government....People undervalue privacy, clearly you aren't worried about your operational security which is fine. However, I am of the belief of protecting my own security is same as someone who is unable to enjoy security benefits. VPN's are not created equal. Tor is brilliant, especially with the DDOS fix...

 

If you don't use a VPN in 2019 is laziness. Especially when we are talking $3 a month for Premium...for which you can actually exceed your own provider's cap, privacy while browsing, breaking attachment from your internet browsing with a static IP very easily traced backed to you.

Can you expand on the DDOS fix? And what other security measures do you recommend aside from the VPN? (Already got that one in place). That and the encrypted mail. Does anyone tumble coins or is that a step too far for most?

Good question tbh truthfully. I have been thinking about this one and only answer I can come up with is depending on who you trust more ISP Vs. VPN and then you got Torrenting and needing to hide it so VPN is perfect for that and or switching from Netflix Canada to U.S. Netflix like I do myself perks of the 100$ Canadian Payment for 3-Year Subscription Payed all at once. 

Tails truly is the best but you need to use it on an External Hard-Drive since it literally has it's own built in O.S. and will take a lot of time effort and reading. Downloading XMMP Chat-Client is the ONLY WAY to get Support from the same people USED to use the simple enough to use IRC Channels which I use a Web IRC for the Tor Browser Support if you want to use Tials Learn how the Tor Browser works which is just like Mozilla Firefox with a VPN that's on Steroids.

REMEMBER NOTHING IS UNCRACKABLE unless your Selling like major league amount of Magazines lol. I wouldn't be to worried and even if you were there are many many different things you could do to Protect yourself.

Literally don't understand half of these abbreviations ha. The only thing i noticed using a vpn on a phone is you get foreign ads on YouTube for example. Suppose what else do you expect for something that's free. Probably signing access to your phone away if you read the small print.

Id be VERY VERY wary of using a free vpn unless its from a HIGHLY reputable source (like protonvpn for instance) as most of them are very sketchy and intrusive and how much information they data mine.....or worse......

@DoomKitty i didn't use the phone for anything important. Just downloaded the app to see what it did, then deleted. I can just use a call and text only phone and not miss a "Smartphone." Interesting to know the apps are sketchy though.

Windscribe is only Free VPN I saw that was descent. LIke he said be careful since they are probably stealing your Bandwidth or Data Mining. They could do son many things since your literally giving them the information about EVERYTHING you do Online.

Some thoughts... after spending a decade and a half consulting with govt IT I can say that most agencies are incapable of simple data sharing. Sure some legal barriers have been removed post 9/11 but for the most part these systems don't talk to each other. 

Sure some agencies have the capability to bring the data sets together but the mining of the data is still a high cost exercise that isn't focused on low level enforcement. Often times they may give locals or other agencies heads up on detected activity, but it isn't in the form of prosecutable evidence so local still has work to do. 

I remember when overgrow was taken down and the associated seed vendor was arrested. They had a server full of self incrimination as well as the mailing addresses of all his seed customers. People flipped out, ripped down grows mid cycle. I even saw a news report about bags of half mature plants being dumped on the highway. In the end only a few actual busts of growers happened and the evidence was from sloppy OPSEC and trash pulls. Point being locals got a tip and then built a case, a case wasnt handed to them

That's been my experience with the govt, too.  They can't make a system that works reliably to clock you in and out.  I have to use an app on my phone to keep track of hours.  That being said, if you have a cell phone, they can find you within a few hundred feet.  They have cameras that you can't even see and when you play back the footage, its so clear it looks like the damn Superbowl, not to mention every single business and gas station convenience store, large building has cameras.   I do background checks on everyone I come in contact with or are going to work for me like handymen, landscapers, etc..  I subscribe to a service.  My spidey senses aren't as good as I thought.  I hired a guy to do some landscaping and he was such a nice young man.  He did a great job, worked so hard.  On a weekend, I invited him to watch Lolapolooza on the Roku streaming live and then something in me was like, dumbass, you invited him into your house without checking him out.  Yep, child predator of a 6 year old girl.  I've been around those kind of guys and have always gotten a vibe in the past, but this guy was nada.   Then I brought him around on a night, my kid had all high school friends over.  I've truly spent my life believing people are mostly good and will help, but boy, oh, boy.  I just want to cry, but I'm not gonna, it's getting so bad out there with the rudeness and people just say whatever they want and don't care that it hurts you.  I think a lot of people that get caught, it's not just happenstance.  You get caught up in a dragnet, someone wants revenge and rats on you, or just bad luck and you get pulled over and you get searched. Too many details, but if you know me, message me, I'll tell you a funny story about the police in my town and how they made a big bust 2 blocks away.  I'd have to say too many details, plus I am probably off topic now.

I know this is an older thread but I got my first love letter today what is weird cuz I had no order pending from any vendor and only two vendors have my home address? It basically said the same bullshit either we destroyed in 30 days or you come claim it LOL BTW since this topic was on vpns I have the nordvpn that I paid for. I believe you need to pay for a service to get anything halfway decent. Is anyone ever gotten a love letter when they didn't have any orders pending? It was even for hydrocodone which nobody even has I wish they did but that's what the substance was mixed with something else I don't know what it was but the letter was almost laughable then they had a little sheet attached about the dangers of opioid use like you would get like it your high school counselors office. I just don't know who the hell sent me something or why I got this love letter maybe a vendor sent me something by mistake. I never even ordered it only be one of two people

BTW it could be somebody who was kind of looking for revenge on me? I don't know can you put it must have been sent pretty obviously because I have never ever had an issue in 7 months. Abusing different vendors. But like I say, majority of them go to my private PO Box only two of them come to my home address
