Is orbot as safe as people say?
I am on Android.
Wishing to delve into the Deep Web, but be as safe as possible.
>Inb4 pick safety or deep web
Start packing your shit, the van is already on the way..
The browser/tor implementation is probably full of holes and even if not android itself will half of your shit.
>I am on Android.
why? are you a fucking idiot? sexually frustrated? simply ignorant?
let us help you
I think it's kinda stupid. How would people send it to you? Your home? If so giving some stranger selling drugs online your details ain't very smart. If I knew how to get bitcoins I might try.
if you're so hellbent on accessing the deepwebs as you call them, go to a thrift store or the like, buy a cheap laptop, buy a cheap wireless adapter so you dont have to use the laptops, get a tails CD, then go to mcdonalds and do your shit or penetrate your neighbors wifi and copy one of their computers mac addresses. If you need to buy buttcoins, do it at home and tumble them.
If your very paranoid, install gentoo.
The problem is that as soon as internet connectivity is enabled on android every single app will try to "phone home" by connecting to their respective services.
So as soon as you fire up orbot and connect to tor, even if you set the firewall thing up to only allow the browser on tor, you'll get simultaneous connections to everything.
If your phone connects to regular web and tor at the same time from the same ip then it is suspicious.
If you configure your shit wrong then your facebook will try to connect through tor, which is even worse because whatever you are doing gets instantly linked to your real persona.
don't use tor on a phone.
or even a laptop without tails unless you know what you are doing.
Most drug dealers I've met in real life were annoying to be around at the least, and cheating scumbags at the worst.
Dark net drug dealers haven't cheated me a single time. At least if you do your research. And you don't have to hang out with people you don't like just because they sell the drugs you want.
>not using tor for your everyday browsing
It's like you WANT to look suspicious when you decide to "delve into the deep web"
He means more the /pol/ definition of degenerate
Because you still have to receive the damn stuff? Only a small percentage of parcels are randomly checked at customs but there's nothing wrong with being careful, especially if you live in a country with harsh penalties / lower burden of proof.
A postal address is something that an adversary will have less trouble obtaining than anything you do within the Tor network. You don't know whether the feds are already observing whoever is shipping that shit to you.
You won't get busted right away. But once they bust the distributor, your real name and real address will be on some list they collected. And if that person was responsible for shipping a lot of illegal goods, you'll have some answering to do.
If you use a PO box, however, they will have a name that is yours but no address. So if you have a generic name, there will be a lot of possible suspects. You can also have this shit sent to a city far away from where you live to make the connection even less apparent.
In the end, it's just an added layer of security and certainly much better than just giving your real address and name. Some risk will always remain since you physically get into contact with the goods at some point.
