comment Differences between using Tor browser and VPN
@cpast Unless, of course, you transmit PII (personally identifiable information) over Tor, in which case the exit node can log that. For example, all BitTorrent traffic contains your IP address. Several exit nodes will log any HTTP form data with a field named password.

Again, it depends on your threat model. ATMs handle their threat model of a physically present person by restricting access to the computer, and restricting the available inputs it presents to the user.
