I use AirVPN for many years and super happy about it. On iOS I used the official openvpn app but recently discovered an alternative: passepartout (Edit: since it's a commercial app, not sure it's ok to paste here but here is the link https://apps.apple.com/jp/app/passepartout-openvpn-client/id1433648537?l=en) So far it has great features but I'm not sure if it's really secure or impacting Air's features in any way. Does anyone use it or have some info about it? Thanks!!
Hello. The purpose of this thread is to allow everyone to make themselves less visible on the Internet by having the same exact set of extensions and addons that help form the browser fingerprint as recognized by Panopticlick. https://panopticlick.eff.org/ So first we should look at what Panopticlick finds. Disregard the "number of bits" and instead look at "one in x browsers have this value" and then find the biggest numbers. Usually the "Browser Plugin Details" and "Fonts" are the largest by far. So since there is nothing that can be done to fix the Fonts problem without messing up the entire system, let's instead focus on the Browser Plugin Details. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/canvasblocker/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disconnect/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/form-history-control/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ghostery/ https://code.google.com/p/https-finder/downloads/detail?name=httpsfinder_0.91b.xpi https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/no-google-analytics/ https://www.eff.org/privacybadger https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/requestpolicy/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/self-destructing-cookies/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/ssleuth/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/ https://secure.informaction.com/download/releases/noscript-220.127.116.11.xpi https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-high-definition/ (The last one is not needed, but it is nice not to have to change the resolution every single time you play a video from Youtube. And getting rid of annotations forever is worth it by itself.) Now. That is the list of extensions I have for this profile. Plugins are still a problem. For plugins Firefox 40+ comes with two that probably should never be disabled. I suggest adding Flash, Silverlight, Unity and VLC Web player. (You get the last by installing Videolan and choosing the option.) All plugins that can be set to "Ask to Activate" should be. Any suggestions to make this more useful and private? (And just to clarify, this thread is identical to another I made on the PIA forums a while back. I still think people should make a unified browser profile to combat malicious sites finding what type of system we use. And I welcome input.)
I have an OpenVPN issue. The problem is, I can only switch back and forth once before I am forced to restart my computer due to a completely loss of network capability. For Example: 1. Connect to OpenVPN 2. Disconnect (everything fine) 3. Connect to OpenVPN (network issues) 4. Disconnect (network issues remain) When I say it is "broken" I mean I cannot access any websites or other computers on my local network. When I open a command prompt (Windows 7) and type ipconfig /renew I receive the message: No operation can be performed on Local Area Connection 5 while it has its media disconnected. This is weird because my network adapter is enabled. The only other connection I have is the TAP-Windows Adapter setup by OpenVPN. So I right click and disable that connection. I try the ipconfig command again and this time receive the message: The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation. I tried to disable/re-enable my non-TAP LAN but I receive the same message when I try the ipconfig command again. I find it very weird that the ipconfig command is targeting the TAP when it should be targeting my normal LAN adapter. OpenVPN is also able to connect to the AirVPN servers without issue, despite my network issues. I know very little about OpenVPN so I am completely unsure on how to proceed. Is there anything I can do to reset my network stuff via the command prompt to avoid having to restart my entire computer? Any ideas on what is happening with OpenVPN?
