- How much can I trust Tor? 5 answers
Tor and Tor Browser do a good job of providing anonymity, but we cannot rely on them alone.
The development of newer techniques for identifying web users (such as canvas fingerprinting) mean that using Tor or its browser alone are not enough to provide useful anonymity, or prevent tracking across the internet. For this reason, I was trying to understand the most important things to further ensure anonymity when using Tor/Tor Browser, and these are the two most important ones I came up with.
- Change the size of the browser each time (preventing the canvas fingerprinting identifying you by eg, your screensize)
- Never log in to a personalised service (eg email, obviously identifying)
I must have missed other important items. I want to know what else is important to know about, and why?
NOTE: I do not see how my question is at all a duplicate of another question which is specifically about Tor, and how Tor can be trusted. One is about a browser, and preventing being tracked against browser identifying techniques, the other is about Tor generally. Clearly no similarity.
