I always hear on YouTube and other places on the internet that Tor is the best option to stay anonymous. Tor is used by many activists, journalists etc. hiding from oppressive governments and so on. Not a VPN nor a proxy would guarantee the same level of anonymity as the Tor browser because of the possibility to keep logs etc. I am aware of the rough difference between a VPN and Tor.
Therefore my question is if using only Tor to perform a nmap scan on a host wouldn’t be the safest „untraceable“ option out of the others available? Why would anyone bother to use proxychains if Tor already provides a very high layer of anonymity and privacy? Wouldn’t that scan be considered as almost „untraceable“? More untraceable than a scan done through proxychains?
