I want to know how to ensure the most complete anonymity when browsing the internet and connecting to remote servers: I want to be as anonymous and secret as possible. I don't know exactly how VPNs differ from proxies, but are they safer? Is it possible to do a combo: proxy, VPN, Tor, etc.? Will combinations as such make it more difficult to be traced?
For example, a proxy alone isn't completely giving me confidence. But what about a proxy-server, VPN and specialized kernel which has no device information, cookie blocking, concealed MAC address/etc., surf behind Tor and add more proxies to the mix, encryption of sent data, etc.?
Like, on top of circumventing any simple IP, if data is passed anonymously, such as through Cryptabyte behind proxies, Tor, VPN, etc., this makes not only the illegal act hard to pinpoint, but the data which may've been used impossible, correct?
I know I asked multiple questions, but I expect mostly one answer to my main one.
