Basically, you'll never need it: because new versions are containing not just some improvements, but also a security fixes, so "the last is a must". However, if you need to test some on the real old code - the best, but not the easiest way - is to set up your CI/CD like Jenkins and to pinpoint a spot where you want to freeze the code precisely. ...

Same thing happened to me. What I did was temporarily disconnect from tor bridge, login to lastpass account and then again connect to tor bridge.

It's OK: it can be a normal GeoIP jitter, tor network backup circuits or integration leve upgrade for your tor instance. For the best experience make sure you have your ORPort reachable from outside and a setting for ClientOnly mode is 0 as it is by default. It will not make you an exit node, but an intermediate one and will improve your tor network ...

Method 1: Use about:config page Type about:config into the navigation bar of Tor browser, accept the warning Search for extensions.torbutton.confirm_newnym option, change the value to True Method 2: Modify the preference file in Tor browser directly (not recommended! See the comment at the top of the file) Open the file tor-browser_en-US/Browser/TorBrowser/...

Well, first of all you need to find out your Boot key or BBS menu key in your BIOS, it's usually showed at the boot process. Usually it's like F2, F8, F10, F11, F12 or basically a Del - just try them! After that - keep in mind that to achieve the fully available privacy you have to unplug your HDD/SSD before booting up - it will make your local data ...

Well, Tor does not create it - it's daemon is just a network service. The browser - it's a separate binary, so - yes, you're right: it's a privacy leak indeed. To mitigate it use either a VM routed through Tor with a regular browser or use QubesOS with a disposable VM for that kind of tasks. If you have to use Tor browser in a routed VM - make sure that your ...

Tor Browser is a Firefox, but it's explicitly tuned for privacy, so - just like in your case - many ubiquitous features are discarded and filtered for the sake of fingerprinting prevention

Yes, if something/anything is leaking any kind of your data. The OrBot - or TransProxy in Linux/Unix - it's just a route diversion layer that works only if there's nothing else is leaking your data. In a simple example: a tool like wget or fetch or curl-cli will not leak anything by itself, but anything else that is running(and there's a lot of stuff on ...

Well, the ones you've mentioned - are very long-term ones and yes, they are using Tor. I2P has got some good amount of non-public outproxies, and that is how it has to be: Same as Tor's exit nodes, outproxies are diversifying the ways/IP zones of the exiting traffic Instead of Tor, private outproxy can be easily specified on-flight and used by the I2P ...

Well, it's technically possible, but it's completely useless. To do the greater dig - just use Firefox ESR and a VM

Are you asking if there exists a standalone program that has tor client baked in - so that you wouldn't need a separate tor process running? Such a program would have to initiate its connection to Tor network every time it's started, which would be extremely slow and costly. That is, unless it would run as a daemon, but then it would act like a system tor ...

Looks like you have a fake executable - it's not a paranoia, I've helped some years ago on this very website to the person who has got a fake tor.exe file in the distribution. Let's run through a checklist: What is the checksum and the URL for your source website's HTTPS certificate? Have you performed a checksum verification for a binary/distro you've ...

Actually, any downloader that can use HTTPS or SOCKS5 proxy is good for the task. Also - you can run all the POSIX and usual tools on Windows just through MSYS2

No, they are not reseted and you're pointing at the right thing! The maximal anonymity can not be achieved neither by using Tor Browser, nor by using Tails - as my research shows. There is a hardcore way that - actually - is available and easy to understand* for a regular user - it's a QubesOS. It's a Linux-based distribution focused on security via ...

It's an old Tor Browser "bug". You don't need a browser - yes, it's better than nothing, but it's not a solution. Use a VM - Virtualbox, Xen, KVM or QubesOS - and a normal browser properly incapsulated

It's better to avoid it because they can be used to fingerprint you, but if you do need some customization and keep privacy - use a QubesOS's disposable VM's with all the customizations you need

Well, first of all - remember, that Tails is Linux by heart, so - basically - there's an attack vector for gaining access to all the hard drives attached. If you want true anonymity - unplug it when you're using Tails : physically or via BIOS. Where to save data - it's totally up to you: Tails is Linux, so just mount it and use it

It's OK for any self-reorganizing network, including the Tor one! The red flag - in means of connection listing - if there will be a connections to the IP addresses you're sure that are not members of Tor network and not a services you do need to use.

It's a windows 10 bug - it binds some of system services to it - and I bet it's done on purpose! Just choose another port - I used 9999 or 19999 - and it worked well. Microsoft has it's affiliations with a privacy-invading state structures, you know - so it was quite an unpleasant surprise for me too like a year+ ago. Just change the port - and that's it.
