This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Using Tor alone without a VPN probably will be faster. The Tor Project recommends against using a VPN with Tor unless you're an advanced user who knows how to configure both in a way that doesn't compromise your privacy. VPNs have a single point of failure: the VPN provider. When you use a VPN, over time, websites still can build up a persistent profile of your usage. Even though sites you visit won't automatically get your originating IP address, they still know how to profile you based on your browsing history. Improve your anonymity and safety by using a Tor pluggable transport.
