Avoiding the tracking codes is most important for sites to which you don't identify yourself / your device anyway, i.e., anonymous surfing. Using Tor is the best option since you don't have to trust any VPN provider. VPN is the second best, and you can probably find a VPN provider that you trust as at least somewhat more than your mobile carrier. Third best ...

The easiest way to avoid interception/modification of your web traffic is one that you mention in the question which is to use a VPN. This will encrypt traffic between your device and the VPN endpoint and should prevent your ISP from being able to modify web headers or other aspects of your use. There are VPN clients for most modern mobile operating ...

Use an alternate identity. Browse on TOR using a public connection and computer that is wholly separate from your home network. A VPN to hide your location might be a good idea as well. Do not mix your identities in any way shape or form. That will give you the most anonymity.

Just considering the VPN, remember that a VPN is a bit like a one-hop Tor node. You could accomplish the same task as a VPN by simply configuring Tor to add one additional hop in the route. The only difference would be that without a VPN, someone watching your Internet connection would know you are using Tor. Of course if you use the VPN those same people ...

This article shows who and what you are fighting. Result: you are hopeless. You mentioned masked MAC Address: forget MAC forging, please. A MAC address have nothing to do with anything ...

If someone was able to monitor the connection between you and your VPN and also know the times that you were active on whatever you are doing over TOR, they could correlate the timing of when you are sending traffic. Especially if you only used this VPN for TOR. So for example, lets say you wanted to post a question on this site using your method. If ...

Network Anonymity is largely how much you perceive yourself to be anonymous. While using a VPN and a layered-browsing method might seem to make you incredibly anonymous, ultimately your connectivity is passing through uncontrolled territory and could be monitored. Weaknesses of TOR can be found on the wikipedia site: ...

The short answer is no, the Evidence of Identity (EOI) isn't mandatory, or forced upon them by governments (as least as far as I know) or Internet standards. However consider that the CAs product is trust. People trust a CA to only issue certificates to the legal owners of trusted sites. EOI forms part of the chain of trust. A CA may be able to redesign ...

Tor is best known for providing anonymity to the users communication. Every time tor uses different routes to forward the data to destination to maintain anonymity. If it is not doing so then same path can be traced to intercept the communication. I think this is the best method to anonymize the communication.

I would assume this is to suppress the amount of intersection attacks(Nodes periodically fail or leave the network; any chain that remains functioning cannot have been routed through either the nodes that left or the nodes that recently joined the network) before/between/after the gaurd, relay and exit nodes. Since if you are able to intersect one and it ...
