Anyone familiar with TOR or Albine for privacy? I’m looking for a good program and haven’t a clue.
Our techie has TOR on his laptop but it’s slow accdg to him. My advice? Buy a VPN using bitcoin as once u pay by CC, “they” will be able to read the PW once the emailed receipt comes in. And change your IP address once you do all these stuff..
Try Tor. It’s slower for browsing but not too slow for me. You might try contributing computer resources or more to the project (easy stuff, see explanation at the Tor site). If you want more of a commercial service with more features, you could try something like TorGuard (don’t know if they’re associated with Tor in any way).
I’ve seen some myths about Tor posted here. With Tor, properly configured and used, your ISP cannot see or log destination IP addresses. The ISP can only see accesses to Tor servers. It’s not a government conspiracy. Tor servers are located at various points on the globe and are owned by privacy activists. None of the activists could even see what is going through their servers without enormous resources for decryption.
Tor works pretty good these days. In the beginning it was MUCH slower. As for VPN this one seems good so far in about 6 months of use. http://www.ibvpn.com/
