I use firefox and palemoon with addons= adblock edge,disconnect,mask me,self destructing cookies and secret agent addon from dephormation to change my useragent to the most used ones.Do you think changing useragents is needed to help against fingerprinting or not.I would like to know the best approach to being anonymous.Thanks for any feedback
  2. ​https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNZrq2iK87k If you haven't seen this yet - this is a 2+ hour, must-watch presentation about the current state of data collection / analysis / surveillance / targeting, held by (right-wing, anti-Snowden!) private investigator Steven Rambam at the HOPE X conference. Money quotes: "If this stuff had existed during the American Revolution, all of the leaders of the revolution would have been identified and arrested." "It's a double-edged sword. Undercover agents, people risking their lives assuming identities, what do they do about this? (..) It's a nightmare now. (..) Motorcycle gangs now have membership applications. And they hire private investigators to check them out." "All of this stuff is being done to catalog us, pigeonhole us - is it actually translating (..) to a reduction in crime rates, catching of terrorists, finding missing persons? No. Not at all." This presentation is a great reminder that yes, we need technological solutions like VPNs and Tor but the real problem lies so much deeper. It doesn't matter how hard we try, we can't escape or avoid "the system". We have to change it and it's not just some crooked governments or a few misguided corporations: it's the current, global mindset that enables these violations and this wrong way of thinking.
  3. I'm not sure if I am allowed to post this here (if not please notify me) but I would like to tell the glorious AirVPN community about my ongoing MyBB forum project. My friends and I have created a community where users can discuss on topics like privacy, security, cryptography, philosophy, politics, freedom and cryptocurrency and on various other topics. We are still working on it and adding new things every day but we hope to grow and have a lot of activity (might change up the theme a bit). We are also open to anyone's suggestions This might be a strange place to post this but I thought why not! Currently there is one other comparable and popular board which is 'wilderssecurity'. So if anyone wants to check us out stop by sometime. Privacy conscious people welcome! https://cryptoforums.net
  4. Hello, what is the plan for Canada servers when logging is enforced? Here is the article I got the news from: http://torrentfreak.com/canada-wants-vpns-to-log-and-warn-pirating-customers-131011/
  5. I recently had a bad experience with a program so I thought i would leave the title of the thread open ended so everyone could post other apps that fit in here. DO NOT USE VPNwatcher this little app was featured on torrentfreak. it watches the vpn connection to disconnect and then it kills whatever process you want. ie bittorrent. I trusted it too much and it failed. Air VPN disconnected for some reason and i guess it took too long for vpn watcher to shut it down. My ISP noticed, twice. I had to call in and listen to some guy tell me my connection had probably been hijacked. At least it wasn't a demand letter. But today I have setup comodo following the advice found on this site. Looks tightly locked so far. Don't make my mistake and try to take an easy way out. It probably took 15 to 20 minutes to get my net locked down with Comodo.
  6. Hi, I'm a bit surprised to see that you are able to have top 10 stats on your site. That make me feel you are keeping some kind of logs for this. I wonder how this works out with your "no logs" policy ? Thanx for your Reply
  7. I have successfully followed the AirVPN instructions on setting up the Asus RT-N66U's (Merlin firmware) openvpn client. My concern now is protecting privacy in the event the VPN drops & traffic continues through the ISP. I would like to route all client traffic through the VPN & in the event it drops, no access to the internet is available to the clients. Does anyone know of a solution for this ? A workable solution exists for the for DD-WRT routers & I'm guessing similar one can be done for the RT-N66U as it runs a variant of DD-WRT (AsusWRT). I'm not technical enough to implement it so would appreciate any help. https://airvpn.org/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=3&id=4287&Itemid=142#4287
  8. (Reuters) Sunday 30 June 2013 - The United States taps half a billion phone calls, emails and text messages in Germany in a typical month and has classed its biggest European ally as a target similar to China, according to secret U.S. documents quoted by a German newsmagazine. The revelations of alleged U.S. surveillance programs based on documents taken by fugitive former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden have raised a political furor in the United States and abroad over the balance between privacy rights and national security. Exposing the latest details in a string of reputed spying programs, Der Spiegel quoted from an internal NSA document which it said its reporters had seen. The document Spiegel cited showed that the United States categorized Germany as a "third-class" partner and that surveillance there was stronger than in any other EU country, similar in extent to China, Iraq or Saudi-Arabia. "We can attack the signals of most foreign third-class partners, and we do it too," Der Spiegel quoted a passage in the NSA document as saying. It said the document showed that the NSA monitored phone calls, text messages, emails and internet chat contributions and has saved the metadata - that is, the connections, not the content - at its headquarters. On an average day, the NSA monitored about 20 million German phone connections and 10 million internet data sets, rising to 60 million phone connections on busy days, the report said. A Spiegel report on Saturday that the NSA had spied on European Union offices caused outrage among EU policymakers, with some even calling for a suspension to talks for a free trade agreement between Washington and the EU. In France, Der Spiegel reported, the United States taps about 2 million connection data a day. Only Canada, Australia, Britain and New Zealand were explicitly exempted from spy attacks.

  9. Since I use the Comodo firewall at the recommendation of the excellent support staff here, I was wondering what do you think of their Dragon web browser, as far as privacy and security is concerned? Because I respect their opinions on such matters, I'd love to hear from the support staff, but also others who might have used it. Thanks in advance, L
