    So I use a VPN IP vanish. I register with a false name and pay with prepaid card setup with false information too. I also buy that prepaid card in the middle of a BIG Metropolitan City, I don't buy it in my town.

    Now when I use Google he always seem to find my location (I play "SEO" game at my home).

    Now I use Windows 7 which I think is my first mistake in term of keeping my privacy.

    I NEVER use Chrome for obvious reason
    HTML:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/641006-its-time-you-ditched-gmail-chrome-wmt-ga.html
    Firefox, Opera only and I will try Safari, thing is Firefox also leak information:

    In the newer browsers (all but IE6, IE7, or IE8) may ask you for your positioning information from the browser. It usually shows up as a bar at the top of the browser. The browser then gathers two specific forms of positioning information from your computer: your IP address and the signal strength of any wireless network near you. That information is then sent, if you approve it, to Google, which returns the coordinates you are at the moment.
    [...]
    If your wireless reciever is turned off, or you're at a stationary computer, all calculations are based on the IP number. These kind of lookups are quite arbitrary and inaccurate, I just get to the nearest big city when trying to use it over a non-wireless line. But mobile connections are slowly taking over landlines, so I guess this problem will solve itself automatically.

    The thing is that modern browsers can obtain the local IP by themselves (using the local OS), not by relying on the server. Except when you run all your traffic tunneled (Open vpn etc...)

    I would like to know people in here who use Linux which I think is better in term of Privacy.

    Also I think the best option to run thing anonym would be to use Tail
    HTML:
    http://www.theverge.com/2014/4/29/5664884/this-is-the-most-secure-computer-you-ll-ever-own
    then setup a server:

    1. Go and buy a $5 to $9 VPS with minimum 512MB RAM (buy with a anonym prepaid card everything under false information).
    2. Setup a LEMP stack:
    - Linux 32bit (do not use 64bit because consumes more RAM). Personally I like to use the Debian 6 minimal 32bit (netinstal) image. If you can't use the minimal image then uninstal all software you don't need that comes preinstalled (e.g. Apache)
    - NginX - use this instead of apache. Works a billion times better especially on such a low specs server.
    - MySQL
    - PHP with APC extension
    You can also install other software you might need like a mail server or whatever.
    3. Go to VPSBible site and use their guides and other guides you find to setup your server.
    4. Search for some NginX and MySQL optimization guides or ready made .conf files.

    A server setup like this can handle in excess of 18000 request per hour (5-7 req/sec) to wordpress blogs that don't use caching or in excess of 3.6 million req/hour (1000 req/sec) for static pages (including cached wordpress pages). All this with just 512MB RAM and the requests will not consume excess RAM as with Apache. If you're running your own custom coded CMS that doesnt waste up memory like wordpress, drupal, joomla or other CMS' do, then you can handle in excess of 100 requests/second without caching.

    And finally setup a vpn on that server.

    Beside NSA i don't see who can spot you.

    I use VYPR VPN and Google does not find my location. That is on any browser.

    To be fair, most VPN's have logs. And even if they don't, you can guess that the NSA watch all ingoing and outgoing traffic from VPN's. So you can never hide from NSA (if that is what you wanna do). TOR is your best bet, but no doubt a lot of the exit nodes are compromised as well.

    I feel that using Linux/Ubuntu/Tail anything OpenSource improve drastically your privacy. I know that Windows OS leak information with their update and report + Collaboration with US investigation.

    It might also be the case with this OpenSource software but it seems less likely.

    You may be going a tad overboard, I don't know what your online activities are but there are a few weak links in your chain.

    LSI cookies, a.k.a flash cookies. These betray your computer's details even though you've cleaned our your regular cookies.

    Now since you're using a VPN, I would normally say that's enough privacy for most people but since you've gone that extra step to hide your identity from even the VPN owner (using the pre-paid card) you're still making a fatal error, by connecting directly to the VPN you're revealing your original IP to them, so you may as well pay using your own PayPal or credit card etc, you have no privacy here.

    As you didn't write about it, I'll assume you're using javascript? Big mistake. Javascript along with Flash Player can reveal your original IP to anyone who is interested.

    These are a few basics here, there are undoubtably a multitude more for someone who's more clued up on this sort of thing. There's a reason that Tor has become popular and is made by professional developers.

    As you're on an SEO forum, quit being paranoid and build some links :)

    IP Vanish state that they do not keep your log info, they are well known for that. Although that's just what they say...

    Tail have been able to dodge NSA partially. Since when you register to any big website Amazon, Ebay, Paypal etc where you let your real identity sit you get tracked.

    myopic1 I handle the Lsi/LSO cookies part and the javascript. Yes they might be other more information I'm unaware of as far as information leak. I also use IP vanish who do not keep log info.

    For sure Tor is the way to go! Its a free download and real easy to use...

    As it states: Anonymity Online, Protect your privacy. Defend yourself against network surveillance and traffic analysis.

    Google Tor Project... Easy to find as I just can't paste the damn url here lol...

    I wonder why you are prepared to go through all that trouble just to hide your identity. If it's for SEO purposes, you are doing it excessively. Remove the extraneous steps that make up 90% of the plan you outlined in your OP and just get a VPN and clear your browser cache/cookies.

    I use a VPN for my Google searches and the VPN location is what's displayed at the bottom of the results, not my real location. Dunno why yours is different.

    VPN (better offshore) + TOR it's the only way, even the NSA cannot do anything...
    Depending of the country where you are TOR can be illegal to use that's why you have to use a VPN at the front!

    Run an offshore vpn then browse with TOR.

    You have an encrypted internet tunnel and anonymity.

    You're never completely anonymous anymore. But unless your dabbling in something highly illegal, few companies will have the reach to get you using the method above.

    My goal is to be THE MOST UNTRACABLE possible. It's not only your connection it's also the browser you use it let ALL kind of information out there even in incognito mode. To the file you modified and upload etc... I don't check out but I'm sure Windows suck information from your computer.

    Check this out:

    So from your contribution and my research the best way will be. TAIL + VPN + TOR.

    Although I don't know if TAIL support VPN...

    in my opinion, best for anon syrfing is using TAILS OS, it has option for spoofing MAC, can change the IP very quick, and use TOR constantly when you are onlone, so you are not leaving any traces
