    How are they encrypting it? I'm not sure what a lot of these things do. CyberGhost, DNSCrypt, HTTPS Everywhere, OpenVPN. Other than TOR what are some of the options?

    It seems that firefox can be rigged to intercept a web request before it goes to https. You don't know what it's using anymore. It no longer says http nor https.

    Apparently, it's a very confusing allusion.
     
  9. Hell, I even encrypt stuff on my pc that I dont intend to upload anywhere, anything personal that I have gets into a truecrypt container which on mount only when needed
    Not only I dont trust any cloud service anymore, I dont trust my own pc
