Thinking of writing a script to make it easy to connect to tor temporarily for a few seconds when you need it, eg before clicking on a link on a web page, and disconnect the rest of the time while you are reading the page. Would this make it substantially harder for a capable adversary to de-anonymize me?

  • to let every technical related aspect aside: perhaps, if everybody (at least with Tor) would use this script... but if it is just you using this script, it is possible that you get even more trackable. || a simple rule of thumb for using Tor: if you are changing things yourself, you should definitely know what you are doing, else it is possible that you make things worse (though it is meant otherwise and even it might be theoretically good/ok, but merely just theoretically). – DJCrashdummy Oct 20 '19 at 10:31
