    If researchers have successfully pulled this off, the government has already beaten them to it. Probably awhile ago.
     
  4. Why should I browse the web secrectly? tor is useless

    Wrong


    Use someone else's wifi network or use a pre-paid phone and tether using a computer paid for in cash and with no personal information entered. Even wear a ghillie suit while you are at it.

    Presto! Anonymity.

    Which of these methods guarantees pure anonymity over the Internet so you can not be traced at all?

    Method 1. VPN connects to ISP- then tor - another VPN and windows proxifier (8 proxychains) Also I have DNS addresses to a open DNS source, Ip4 protocol, Mac spoofing on

    All cookies are disabled using the start page browser in tor and Java script disabled.

    Or

    Method 2 Tails using tor and proxychains with tor-buddy?

    I never connected to any social media sites using real identity...

    What do you guys think is there another way or are these methods sufficient to ensure no tracing back to me?
     
  14. NSA is logging almost all VPN connections, so if you think that by using vpn connection will keep you anonymous, think again.
