how do you fellow robots secure your internet privacy? i got redpilled recently and now im freaking the fuck out
i didnt use social media in the first place because i was never comfortable in giving my personal info out like that, but ive been an extensive user of chrome and gmail
ive switched to waterfox, gotten shit like abp/noscript/blender, uninstalled botnet shit like skype and have a vpn now but i doubt its enough still until i move to a linx distro
>>
The number one thing to do is, don't mess with other people, you don't want to make yourself a target. The second would be try to avoid other people's traps. AKA: the less social you are online the better.

I reset my computer to its factory state every couple months or when something is acting up. But seriously its impossible to be safe, just black tape your webcam and hope for the best.

idk why you lads are so paranoid.

I have heard that freenet is a good choice for private and non-tracked browsing. Also, Tails offers a great anonymisation but it's probably that three-letter-agencies have been infiltrating in Linux and Tor services.

The most valuable option is to purchase a trustable VPN service. A good company won't give any information about his client who's using a proxy.
>>
>>26243573
> trustable VPN
Can you recommend any?
>>
I dont care tbqh, NSA wants to spy on me have fun sifting through all the insane autistic shit I do online
>>
>>26243596
same. I end up shitposting from any conceivable point of view.
>>
>>26243592
not him but i definitly would not recommend hidemyass to anyone, avoid it like the plague
>>
>>26243592
You have various options at hand and most will give you a decent and affordable option, but there are always scammers who will give you shit for eighty monthly dollars.

>Express VPN
>Buffered
>bolehvpn

They are around USD 7.50 per month for the basic packs.
>>
You can't be completely safe. It is just not possible.
You will be fine though as long as you don't do crazy shit.
>>
>>26243592
>>26243628
if 4chan is your main concern, ive tried multiple vpns
hidemyass got ranged banned on all IPs, and they also WILL hand over your logs
>>26243644
express vpn has most of their IPs range banned

bolehvpn and purevpn are pretty solid though , have very little range bans, and they dont hand over logs
>>
>>26243484
this. would you stick your dick in a hornets nest?
>well this is 4chan after all....

don't gotta worry about the gov. the fuck they gonna do? steal your money? if you're not doing anything illicit anyway, then don't worry about it. be more concerned with the actual criminals.

i use ExpressVPN for my secure shit, like checking banks, etc. have a paid sub for an active scanner, run a free anti-keylogger, and have a chrome extension to erase my history everytime i close my browser. i also run glary utilities and CCleaner for general maintenance and to help clean up tracks. also run 3-4 scanners at least once a month. is this gonna stop a hacker? no. i'm just trying to make it more difficult for them.
>>
>>26243763
>active scanner
>free anti-key logger
Would you mind giving the names of those?
>>
>>26243763
this
No matter how good or how much knowledge do you have, if you do suspicious shit you are an easy target for an organised security agency or law enforcement. Specially if you are into drug dealing or illegal porn.
>>
>>26243592
There is a Swedish VPN-provider that recently started to focus on international expansion.
https://www.ovpn.se/en

It has been around for around a year or something and it has no history of giving out logs to law enforcement. The owner is also very transparent and regularly frequents Swedish forums to communicate with his costumers. They don't have many IP-ranges though so it's very prone to IP-range bans (some are banned on 4chan, some work). They also only have servers in Sweden and Germany, so if you want to use the VPN for shitposting on /pol/ or /int/ you might want to get one that has servers in more countries.

Everyone knows that if you use 7 proxies, no one will be able to backtrace you.

If your concern is the government it's probably worthless. Especially if you use Micro$hill or Applel, but even if you don't the NSA likely has spyware built into your hardware, and if not, you've probably already got their spy/malware and no software on the market or that's readily available will help you.
If your concern is companies aggregating and or profiling you, or just generally reducing digital footprint/trackability then I'd suggest:
Uninstall Google's Botnet
Uninstall M$ Botnet or stop booting to it
Obviously disable 3rd party cookies.
Remove browser plugins and disable http referer info. These both leak info. Disable JavaScript, use extensions like uMatrix and SecretAgent.
Find a DNS server that won't log you. Preferably nearby for good latency.
Fuck Skype.

Also Idk a good VPN but consider nesting them.
>>
>>26243797
oh, the active scanner is a paid sub of Avast, plus is comes with built in firewall
>i've never trusted the windows default firewall

the anti logger is Zemana. but you gotta look around the site, because there is a free trial and an actual free on

fogot to mention, zonealarm free firewall is good as well (at least better than anything default), plus it has an "allow/deny" feature every time an exe tries to do anything. some people think its annoying, but i think it has great potential
>>
>>26244040
I use AVG, would you recommend switching?
>>
>>26244040
the fuck is this false flag shit?
>>
If you use a VPN, make sure to create a kill switch in your firewall so that it starts blocking traffic the moment your connection to the VPN breaks.

>>26244092
Not same person but AVG is fine.

Rather than relying on signature-based detection of malware though, you should use common sense. Sandboxie is also great.
>>
>>26243410
oh look a new meme
>>
>>26244182
I can barely use my computer to point and click so I don't understand much of what you said and would not know how to build in a kill switch to save my life.
>>
>>26244099
That's fine. It's just making sure your hosts file wasn't tampered with by an untreated source. If the reference looks fine (it's pointing Wikipedia to your system), then leave it. If it's not okay, revert it.
>>
>>26244307
Never mind then, just use an antivirus and pray to KEK it doesn't let anything through.
>>
>>26244399
Kek grants you dubs, he approves of your message. I will burn some incense next to my computer to praise him.
>>
>>26244399
>frogs eat Mosquitos
>Mosquitos carry disease and virus
>Kek literally is an antivirus
>Zika is a plague sent by Kek
>>
>>26244182
What do you think of Malwarebytes anti-malware?
