I'm going to completely go off the grid.
Ways to do this?
Have a virtual machine, running linux ubuntu. encrypted HDD, encrypted the OS
Web browser running Firefox
Going to buy a VPN outside the US and use the VPN to connect to TOR network
Also want a way to leave no digital fingerprint on my andriod s6 but not sure how to go about this? I have a firewall that blocks all incoming/outgoing connections but I know Google is a huge bot net. Impossible?
Fighting against data mining, NSA and surveillance from ISP, ways to accomplish this as your entire life depended on it, hypothetically
>"I'm going to completely go off the grid."
>still insists on using the internet
You mean in this day in age there's no possible way to go online without bieng tracked. Impossible
Literally just stay off the internet, get rid of cell phone.
You can still use a computer but if you need to use the internet, make a run into town, do a dump of anything you've done that you feel you need to post online, and download any new articles, books, whatever that you'd want to bring back.
One person removing themselves from technology isn't really a fight, you'll just be the neighborhood wackjob and end up working at a Walmart without benefits for the rest of your life
>Have a virtual machine, running linux ubuntu. encrypted HDD, encrypted the OS
That isn't going off the grid m8.
>Web browser running Firefox
What? your web browser runs a web browser? that's pretty retarded senpai.
>Fighting against data mining, NSA and surveillance from ISP, ways to accomplish this as your entire life depended on it, hypothetically
Fighting against it will only make you way more noticeable.
Better to blend in with the rest desu senpai.
If by 'off the grid' you mean 'use my computer and internet more privately and securely', then there's still a lot you can do.
Use Qubes OS. Don't use proprietary software. Use a VPN not based in a 5 eyes country. Cryptostorm is a good one, based in Iceland and fast. Use a browser that's common if you want to blend in but block java script, use https, self destructung cookies, all that stuff. Use an agent switcher to disguise yourself as a normal person. Route through Tor. Encrypt your ass off. Use a VPS. Look for an independent IPS if you can but you're still giving out your address and stuff, stealing internet might be your best bet. Idk, there's a ton of stuff other than that you can do to help as far as desk/laptops go but a phone is going to be tough. Prepaid burners are safest in your case.
Live in a van with a generator, move around and crack people's wifi. Or just go live in a cabin and live off the land, what 'off the grid' actually means. Read the 'Shadowliving' doc if you want to stay in a more urban area, it might be a bit dated now though.
>Where the fuck do you think we are?
This is the single shittiest comment that everyone makes to justify shitposting. But to answer your question, one might have the impression to be in technology board.
it could be classed as an act of errorism if the powers in you country so choose to do so.
messing with telecommunications .....you wouldnt download a cell tower....
