Wondering the steps to take to make my note 8 totally anonymous so there's less chance of anything getting hacked after downloading tor system. Is it enough to just check all the boxes on apps under the orbit settings or do you need to take out all apps and restart them after downloading the network? Appreciate it if anyone knows for sure.
As far as I know, open the orbot and just click connect. And turn on the vpn, firstly because it hides your location from where you're using Tor. And secondly because guardian project wouldn't have included the vpn option in the orbot app if it was an anonymity compromising option. Also,don't change any default settings in the orbot app.
Well, basically you can use an Orbot app and just connect. But digging deeper with TCPDump and WireShark tools it's going to be an AOSP with a custom build with custom
iptables rules just right from the start - it's taking governance over the traffic a way more earlier than Orbot or any app. If you need a fully sealed isolation - use a separate hardware box like on Raspberry Pi or Asus TinkerBoard - there's no other way to make it safe and secure
You can get that particular service for $2.90 a month, or $40 for a year on multiple devices. I highly recommend it before connecting to the TOR network.
My apologies in advance for not being able to definitively answer your question. Also for any typos and my grammar. I'm still new to this, but happy to help if you have any further questions.
Kind Regards, Liquid
