@barracuda tells me that Tor browser is a honeypot. Does anyone have any substantiating evidence of this? submitted by Timmy2 to AskVoat

Tor is not compromised, and it doesn't really seem possible for it to be compromised as it is open-source somewhat decentralized considering anyone can run any sort of node. Yes there are ways you can try to unmask Tor users, but that goes for anything and certainly doesn't mean it is "compromised".

The only thing I can think of that is remotely accurate to that statement is that it is likely agencies like the NSA run Tor nodes in an attempt to conduct correlation attacks. But again, this has nothing to do with Tor itself being compromised, but rather what may be considered to be a flaw. But even then, if you use Tor properly with bridges and hidden services, correlation attacks become much harder to conduct.

I would also like to mention that there is also I2P and ZeroNet. I2P isn't made to connect to the clearweb, however it does the job when using hidden services. ZeroNet can be connected to via Tor, but they are also implementing I2P support.

In my opinion, ZeroNet over I2P is going to be one of the most effective ways to publish and view content anonymously and without censorship.

Could you provide any evidence? I don't deny that agencies like the NSA own Tor nodes, but to say specifically the CIA owns most of the thousands of Tor nodes is a pretty big claim that should be backed up.

Is there a way to protect privacy on smartphone? submitted by slowburn to AskVoat

If you want better privacy, you should use an open source operating system. Replicant is one of the best options, however its only compatible with a few devices, in which case LineageOS would be your next best bet.

But even then, there are still a few issues with that. Not really the operating systems themselves, but broadband and non-free hardware could be seen as an issue. Thankfully there have been recent developments in phones that truly respect ones privacy. I would check out the ZeroPhone, GTA04, Neo900, and the Librem 5.

I disagree... If you use Tor properly, you would have it set to use max security, where all scripts are blocked. Furthermore, if you use PT bridges and hidden services, correlation attacks become much harder.

Yes, Tor is not perfect. But it certainly can be useful and you don't make yourself any less secure by using Tor over just connecting to the internet how you typically would.

Heh, I can sense an overwhelming power of intellect coming from you. How is it possible Tor slowed down connections to the daily stormer? And you do understand that Tor is slow by default, right?

Go on, explain how every node operator is in on it where they magically throttle connections to the daily stormer while ignoring the fact Tor is universally slow because your connection is being bounced through multiple nodes around the world.

You can't just go around saying "you don't know anything go educate yourself" and think that actually proves anything. Either stand by your point or fuck off.
