I am involved in some activism work against a powerful group that is known to use threats against it's opponents. As a result many activists have been silenced and quit working against them.

I need to use some online services as part of my work but sadly that requires phone verification. My country has mandatory SIM registration laws so even if I access the service through tor I will be de-anonymized because of my phone number.

What can I do to maintain my anonymity?


This question pops out from time to time and not just regarding Tor. The GSM phone is a beacon and tracking device 2-in-1, so if you need it to be anonymous - just register a SIM for someone else, like offer a hobo some booze to register a SIM for you, it works ;) After that don't forget to maintain the geolocation security procedures, that's it.
