"Privacy isn't about hiding bad things, but about protecting what defines us as human beings, who we are. Our day-to-day behavior, our personality, our fears, our relationships, and our vulnerabilities."

-- The Tor Project

@fribbledom tor doesn’t protect by itself. Get a paid vpn then get on tor. If possible use a separate machine with some old Mac card.

@vikramjeetsinghparmar @fribbledom Tor + decent opsec provides sufficient protection against most non-targeted invasions of privacy. If your ISP/opponent will target you for merely using Tor, that's when a VPN can help. But of course it only moves the trust from your ISP to your VPN provider, and won't stop an ISP who will target you for using a VPN

There's not universal advice here. Know your threat model.
