thanks so much for your work. Ive just started using TOR, and need some basic help, aside from the excellent FAQs. I've tried using OFTC as recommended, but it wouldn't verify my nickname etc. (I've emailed them for help there)
I need to know a couple things before I dive right into TOR (esp re password manager)
Im not a journalist, protestor, political activist, criminal, etc etc- just an ordinary user of web, genuinely concerned about digital privacy, security, rights, not just for myself, or individuals but as to how the global digital landscape is being shaped and all the human, political, social etc consequences play out. I guess im trying to align with the "good guys"! Something like that. Hence I love TOR, EFF, DRW in Australia, Intercept, Snowden etc.
Could you please direct me to the right place to ask my "new guy" questions? I'll put them here below as best I can. Kindly Mark
1- Is it safe to import safari bookmarks?
2- I use Bitwarden password manager on safari and chrome. Is it safe/good to use Bitwarden in TOR?
3- I use Nordvpn, and I know one ought not use any vpn with TOR. This may cause an issue when I need to use (for example) safari and TOR at the same time for some reason. Is there a way around this? (I've been turning the vpn off and on as required when switching between browsers erk...)
4- I know one shouldn't use any browser extensions. So to clarify: using TOR automatically eliminates the need for any of them?
5- Is there any point using TOR on my MacBook, but not on my iPhone? if im using it on one but not the other, doesn't that invalidate it or at least undermine any benefits I might gain? I see theres is onion for iOS , but seems tricky to use.
