Do you use a VPN? Any recommendations?

I use nordvpn, eh, it seems to be pretty stable now. I have seen overlaps with different commercial VPN providers servers. As in these using or sharing the same server, IP

(Image)< is what seems to be everything going through the VPN correctly.
Shown by wireshark. As in all communications are through the VPN.
Where no ISP could really decipher what is what. Other than that you
are using a VPN.

With nord, I had always had trouble with dns leaks' with nord vpn. So went to using
denscrypt-proxy and that fixed that. Don't know what was up. It wasn't on my end.

Do you think being on a VPN makes much of a difference? Do you do anything to stop browser fingerprinting? Do you log onto personal accounts from your VPN or go naked with your ISP IP?

I'm not trying to bait you into a "gotcha" moment just genuinely curious. I first reasoned that I should buy a VPN because I did a lot of torrenting and streaming tv shows/movies and thought those seeking to punish copyright violaters might be emboldened to do so by a corporate-friendly administration/FCC. I've renewed it since because it feels weird being a dataset owned by giant tech conglomerates; that try to force feed your the latest product for money.

VPN/VPS is just one part of what I like to call information hygiene. But yes, people, look at grc.com ssl cert fingerprints page and verify if you get the real thumbprint for that website. Some have exceptions such as search engines, it's all explained there. For me, even when I'm on my naked ISP IP, I get grc.com and paypal get the additional Verificatin, the URL's show in green in Firefox when that's the case, I don't get the real thumbprint for wikipedia no matter what, nor facebook (nor do I care), grc.com lists 10 or so big web sites when you get on the fingerprints page and automatically gives you the real thumbprint for those sites.

I know for sure that since I'm on the largest canadian fibre ISP, they, the ISP are man-in-the-middling themselves. Thankfully, paypal and other sites where I got banking info all get the Extended Verification green dot. You can verify any website in the search bar for their real thumbprint then compare with what you get by clicking in that ssl padlock and find the thumbprint as it called in Firefox.

What do you think of the tunnlebear?

Im looking into surfshark, torgaurd, and mullvad. Im leaning towards surf shark because its so cheap right now but people claim the others to be more legit.

Very happy with Mullvad. More expensive than others I've seen but always well reviewed.

I'm paranoid so I tend to distrust the more widely advertised ones like nord. Seems sketch that they advertise so hard and it it's so popular I assume it's just a big honeypot or something.

So I decided on torguard because i could get it for the same price as surfshark. After paying and downloading, I read the "term of service" and it pissed me off. It says things like:

You agree to abide by all applicable federal, state and local laws and
regulations in connection with the use of TorGuard.net's services. You

    deemed reasonably necessary.

This kind of talk really ruined my feeling that I was getting something to protect me. I talked tothe support staff about it and they explained to they would have no records to give to the authorities but it seems strange tome that they would even talk about it then. I get that they are just trying to cover their asses legally. Maybe Im just being paranoid?

Tunnelbear has a free trial so you can try it for yourself.

One I might mention says 60gig a month cap. But not monitored. riiighhht
I have work downloads that almost reaches that within a day or two.

Nord has been pretty decent. No issues,except they advertise all over the place. The terms of service are pretty liberal, but, a few minor things to consider. The software had generally screwed with other things. It leveled out eventually. They added rpm in downloads. Didn't get
a chance to check that out. Pure vpn, sounds pretty bad, like really
bad, as mentioning the 60 gig a month.

Reality, a vpn is pretty cheap to actually run. The service as a whole is a different story.

One needs a service that they can se the servers that are connected and can connect to individually. Not just, a button you press to connect to their best server, one for p2p, one for 'privacy.' Your should be able to see what server ip you are connected connecting to.

Reality is don't just depend on a vpn provider. find a scheme that is more dynamic than just a simple vpn. If a company says they are 100% anonymous, maybe? But your internet connection has to use different servers. Tor alone
is not reliable. Maybe less so.

Use a vpn as a tool, but self-reliance is far more important than paying for a service that declares 100% anonymity. Any service that declares 100% anonymous can reach their servers and roll over on your IP address.

Absolutely. An isp in the US can hold onto traffic for?? A vpn at least would give one pseudo anonymity at least.
