    Yeah, you are kind of right. After I studying a lot on anonymity and privacy I'm of the view that there is definitely way to remain 100% anonymous. Before I implement this measure I just want to learn about it. Just want to acquire more knowledge from esteemed members of the forum.

    There are a couple privacy focused OSs out there. Pur.ism and Pops are the two that I've seen. Pur.ism even developed a privacy focused phone and computers, though System76 has a much better computer. Main thing is getting around one motherboard chip that Intel is extremely secretive about...

    Well I'm not too worried about it, but I do have plugins like Disconnect, Auto-Cookie Delete on my browser.

    Michael Bazzell just released a new book titled "Extreme Privacy What It Takes to Disappear in America" So far I've already learned new stuff and I only finished Chapter 1. Looks to be a VERY good read.

    Recently i tried to purchase a VPN but my bank didn't allow the transaction.When i asked why i ve been told that this VPN provider is blacklisted..What i learned from this :
    1- They want to be able to track us even if we do nothing that's not legit
    2- A strong VPN like the one blacklisted by my bank is really a pain in the ass for the trackers

    Buy your VPN with cryptocurrency! I'd never use a bank card or PayPal with my own name to buy a VPN, can't trust them to not share data.

    Let us know which VPN! Banned by banks is a sign of quality

    Most banks don't let you buy crypto anymore if you want to cashback some profits, you have a shit ton of papers to provide and even after that they can close your account

    EDIT: OP take a look at "Qube OS" it should be interesting if you don't already know https://www.qubes-os.org

    Don't you have to give your identity to own BTC? all exchanges ask for KYC, or I missed something?

    You can buy BTC > another real anonymous crypto > BTC > VPN

    The name of the forum doesn't support this advice much :p

    By the way, sometimes I think this is not enough. For example, I stay 100% legit, but reminding this happening here in the forum some months ago, a guy managed to access my account, and sent scammy messages in my behalf. Since I stay legit, all my info was publicly accessible and one of this scammed guys contacted me directly with a threatening attitude.

    Maybe, if I were more paranoid like OP, this guy could have not found me, and he might have resigned despite being scammed by someone else on my behalf.

    The ying and the yang of the Internet, all full of risks and threats like the physical life :eek:

    But obviously I find there are some limits that should not be crossed just for the sake of sanity, like always browsing with VPN/Thor and all that... for me is like always going down the street with a safety mask for preventing pollution and/or virus diseases.

    Thank you. I have heard about it but never implemented. Time to test this application. My goal is to achieve 100% anonymity. I'm confident it's achievable.

    Using multiple browsers at the same time: Chrome for email and online accounts, Firefox for browsing and Opera for searches.

    This is a simple way to do it and the first thing you will notice is that you won't get any more targeted ads (which means that online services can't really profile you very well).

    XMR is monero,I don't know what you don't understand.
    XMR is not linked to your identity, you can trade BTC/XMR everywhere so you can obtain BTC no linked to your ID

    Basically, it's a multi VM you can know mostly everything about it under 20 mins with this video

    Don't forget Sarah Pallin. During the election campaign her personal Yahoo Mail was hacked because all of her challenge questions were easily searchable online (maiden name, high school mascot, that kind of thing). Some level of privacy is a good thing.
