are you a server/location creature of habit?

Recommended Posts

just curious if anyone else out there tends to stay within a certain geographical location regardless of server speed? or do you have any locations you flat out refuse to connect to for whatever reason? I tend to fall into both of these areas heh

I use Air strictly for privacy reasons, and tunnel all my traffic through pfSense router. I actually do not care much about geolocation. When service provider block my country, I just don't use it. I believe that it's not worth using. While Netflix started blocking VPNs a resigned immediately. For me privacy always wins. Having said that, at the beginning I experimented with various locations and finally settled with Netherlands for good as the best compromise between speed and privacy. At least from my perspective (I live in central Europe). Not only I settled on one given country, but also on one given server. However I wouldn't think twice to switch my preferred location if Netherlands lower somehow their privacy standards. Although, since Air requires simultaneous connections to different servers, for my mobile devices I've chosen Romania and Sweden. Both are good privacy friendly countries. Recently I experimented with Ukraine, with excellent latency and speed, however I resigned because usually only few user are connected to the Ukraine server (Nair), and this somehow scares me that it would be easy to correlate my traffic. Waiting for more users using Nair

 

So yes, I stay with one primary location, but monitor situation actively

I only connect to one server. All manner of internet creatures will come acclimated to my presence this way. In other words, after some time the services I use will "learn" I live in the server's country. Which is good because it's not my real location, after all.


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.
