How to make the most of a good VPN
If you use a VPN to hide your IP address, you can hide your activity from your ISP and track your location online, and the Tor Project says that you can do it without any effort at all.
The Tor Project has just published an article explaining how to use Tor to hide and track internet activity in the most secure manner possible.
To make it simple, we’ll assume you have a simple browser, a VPN, and a hidden IP address.
Once you’ve setup these settings, we recommend using Tor in the background and never exposing your IP addresses to the internet.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to setup a hidden VPN in order to block your ISP from watching your online activity.
First, you’ll need to make sure your browser can safely connect to Tor and download the Tor Browser Bundle.
You can do this by navigating to the browser tab on your desktop and selecting Tools.
In the Tor window, click Settings.
Under the VPN tab, check the box for Allow anonymous connections, then click OK.
Now you’ll be presented with a dialog that says that the Tor Bundle needs to be downloaded.
Click Download to start downloading.
The download should take a while, and after a few minutes you’ll get an error message.
To avoid this error message, click Stop to stop the download.
Once the download is finished, you should see a new window showing that the download has completed.
You’ll now see a message in the browser window saying that the downloaded Tor Browser bundle is now available in your local computer.
When you open the browser, you will be able to see a list of websites you have blocked from viewing.
The list will be different each time you open it, but this is the most recent list: https://www.torproject.org/tor-browser-bundle.html You can still use Tor, but you won’t be able see the content of these websites.
We recommend not using Tor entirely for any activities, but instead choosing an alternative such as VPN.
We suggest that you use Tor for any activity that involves exposing your identity, like monitoring your browsing history, communicating with your family or friends, or engaging in legal, financial, or other activities.
Now that you have your Tor Browser Bundles ready, we suggest you download and install the Tor client.
You should see the following message: Downloading torclient.exe, version 1.1.5…
You can verify that it downloaded successfully by typing: “torclient” in the terminal window.
Once installed, you’re now ready to use the Tor browser.
First we need to set up a hidden Tor IP address for use in the Tor network.
Open your browser, and navigate to the address bar of the browser.
If it doesn’t look like there is an address bar, it means you’re using a web browser that doesn’t support Tor.
If you are, go back to the Tor site and download and unzip the Tor Client bundle.
If your browser supports HTTPS, you won.
This step will help you hide your Tor IP from other people and websites.
Open the Tor software folder on your computer.
You will see a folder named tor_source_dir on your Desktop.
In your Tor directory, find the Tor source directory.
In my case, I named it tor_Source_dir/my_browser_source.txt.
You must have the Tor executable and source code in order for the Tor server to work.
Open up the Tor application.
Navigate to the location of the source directory you downloaded earlier and double-click on it.
You now need to add the Tor user and passphrase to the application.
Open this file and enter the user and password you created earlier in the file, then press OK.
Next, we need the Tor command line tool.
Navate to the directory containing your source directory, and open up a new command line window.
Open a command window by navigating back to your Desktop and selecting Command Prompt from the menu bar.
The command prompt window should look something like this: cat /etc/tor/torrc cat /usr/bin/tor If it’s not there, you need to install Tor.
The application should now look like this.
Now, you are ready to start Tor.
To start the Tor program, navigate to your directory and open it with a text editor.
We prefer Notepad++ for this, but any text editor will do.
To begin, navigate back to where you saved the Tor directory and double click on the file you just downloaded.
In our case, we named it cat_source/my-browser_tor.txt and entered our Tor passphrase.
Now open up your browser again, and your destination IP address should be now appear.
Open it up again, then navigate to a new tab, then to the main menu of the application, and select Start Tor.
