This is impartant.

Do I need to configure Bridge relays to hide fact that surfing on deep web .onion sites using USB Tails and Tor Browser? Reading this (https://www.torproject.org/docs/bridges.html.en#AddTorWorks) my understanding is - there is no bigger difference if I use Tor Browser via tails or xp win if we are talking about the very fact of visibility usage of Tor Browser - is just visible that someone, somewhere uses it - correct me if wrong?

So in that case I wish to configure Brige Relays in my USB Tails Tor Browser - following this path, it is necessary to hide the fact Tor Browser - Yes or No?

Then adding bridges in Tor Browser when Tor does work in Tails is not possible since there is no possible to open Tor Browser's Network Settings - it shows only: New Identyty, Seciurity Settings, Check for tor browser update.

This leads me to conclusion - Using Tails an Tor Browser there us no need to set briges relays to hide fact of usage.

Please, give me a hint/shrt guide whether I need to set briges relays?

Can I use this to configure Tor Browser in Tails? https://bridges.torproject.org/options

Thanks for help. Regards,

  • If you want to hide fact that you are using Tor then bridge, specially with obfs4 transport can help. Mar 7, 2019 at 9:06

So, here is what the config looks like: - runing USB Tails - no SSD/HHD drives in notebook (physically removed) - tor browser configured via Briges - "Just give me bridges!" (https://bridges.torproject.org/options) - persistent storage is ON - never open full-screen while web activity

1 Is this all what I need for good solution to anonymity in web activity? 2 Should I focused on some additional settings? focus on some additional aspects? 3 In this situation the VPN's config is makes no sense... no needed? 4 The biggest threat is a private WiFi network - better to use some other?

I appreciate your support very much - Thank you. Regards,

  • ..ok.. thanks for it. The is and web instruction how to configured well - bridge obfs4 in Tails?

  • Thats was helpful. I manage to connect via brige with the simple one - "Just give me bridges!" However once I have taken a obfs4 one connection was for ever - like 30 min and no connection. Any idea? Thanks a lot for your time, I'm trying to support your org. Regads
