>just use a VPN bro
>>83818461I do. I host my own VPN on a well located and good value VPS (not using my real credit card or anything though).
>>83818461Based Friendly reminder that if you're connected to a vpn any other device (in theory) and certainly the network operator can scan all your ports and try to break in - then from there pivot to your entire local network
>>83818478If your really that worried use a separate device to connect to the VPN and set the firewall to act like an edge router. You can scan all the ports you like but none of them are open and there isn't anything running to hack.
my vpn is being from a shithole, downside is poverty
>>83818469That's just shifting the burden of trust from your IPS to the VPS, doesn't solve anything
>>83818461Thanks, but I'm sticking with Mullvad.
>he didn't go to privacyguides.orgwho gives a shit about xpressvpn
VPNs are just for piracy. If someone powerful wants to fuck with you they're going to fuck with you whether you're behind 7 proxies or not.
I just use PIA for torrenting so why should I care?
>>83818461>Former malware distributorSource?>>83818469If you're the sole user of the VPN or use a shared IP this is worthless in terms of being anonymous, it only protects your from your ISP spying on you, but that's already mitigated by HTTPS

Thanks, but I'm sticking with Mullvad.

>>83818478So what?If someone being in your local network compromises your security, you're doing something wrong.I could have a glownigger in my LAN and wouldn't care. Everything's accessible over wireguard + ssh only.
>>83819021doesn't even need vpn. The isp is enough in shitholes
>>83818478why the fuck would they have to go through that effort? 95% chance you're running their proprietary client instead of manually inputting credentials and IPs into openvpn or something.
>>83818478fake and gay
>>83819317they are trying to dissuade people from using VPNsKape are scumbags, they buy dead VPNs and use their brand
What is a "malware distributor", most mainstream software companies are malware distributors and I'm not saying that to be edgy I mean they literally bundle spyware and adware with their products.
>>83818461This information is anti-semitic! Cease at once!

>>83820006>On September 14, the US Department of Justice released a statement that ExpressVPN CIO Daniel Gericke, prior to joining the company, had helped the United Arab Emirates hack computers (including those of activists) without having a valid export license from the US government. In exchange for a deferred prosecution agreement, he agreed to pay a $335,000 fine and his security clearance was revoked.>Project Raven>Gericke, along with two ex-US intelligence operatives Marc Baier and Ryan Adams, was reportedly part of Project Raven, a covert team tasked with building the UAE's Karma hacking system and hacking into the accounts of human rights activists, journalists, and rival governments “at the behest of the UAE’s monarchy,” according to a 2019 Reuters investigation.Anon you were already absolutely fucked by (((the man))) even before they bought the company. Literally an NSA owned company.
>>83820046Expressvpn ran everything on RAM with no data storage. This has been proven by court orders. Fucking' A. I am tired of this shit.
>>83818606Opened this thread just to see if anyone would mention Mullvad. Thanks for confirming my choice of VPN isn't completely retarded.
>>83820071here's your shekel, thanks for your service. (Delete this part)
>>83819400I have the PIA client installed which runs a daemon. How should I see if Kape is trying to break into my shit?
>>83820112>>83820112fuck off bro. I'm pissed some kike bought expressvpn. I literally run a vpn because i don't want some isp bot net tracking my frequency of using the words niggers and kikes. I am tired of this fucking trickery everywhere. zero chance that kike faggot in charge of express vpn can be trusted. he probably gets paid by Israel to fucking flag "anti-semites" or some shit.
>>83818461Your own router can become a VPN. https://www.tp-link.com/us/business-networking/vpn-router/tl-r600vpn/It's easy to set up and this is what small businesses use for remote work.
>>83820147This does nothing for privacy numbskull.
>>83820152Yes, it does. Why do think businesses use it for remote accessing servers and desktop computers?I work in the IT industry so I know what I am talking about little brother.
>>83820147Counter Argument. High-security VPN CapabilitiesTL-R600VPN supports IPsec and PPTP VPN protocols and can handle IPsec/PPTP/L2TP pass-through traffic as well. It also features a built-in hardware-based VPN engine allowing the router to support and manage up to 20 LAN-to-LAN IPsec and 16 PPTP VPN connections. Advanced VPN features include DES/3DES/AES128/AES192/AES256 encryption, MD5/SHA1 authentication, Manual/IKE key management, and Main/Aggressive negotiation modes.
>>83820167They use it so you can access the local network from a remote location via a secure tunnel stupidface.

>>83818469Why do people pretend that the more difficult and counter intuitive methods are actually the best? Not only are you limiting yourself to just one country, all of your browsing habits is limited to just another IP address that only you use rather than multiple IP addresses that are shared with other people. You aren't actually making yourself obscure.
>>83822498>HTTPS and DNS over HTTPS / DNSCrypt is enough.No it isn't because your ISP still knows what websites you are going on and websites can track you based on your ISP.
>>83820404>express vpn was one of the most recommended you dipshit.No it was one of the most shilled. The same with NordVPN. This doesn't mean that they are the best out there, although NordVPN is significantly better than ExpressVPN.
>>83823606No, your ISP would see you making a connection to the VPS.
>>83819116>proprietary is bad mmmmkay?
>>83823895Sure but you didn't say VPS + HTTPS over DNS is enough. You said HTTPS over DNS is enough. But I also think "hosting your own VPN" only advantage is the ego boost it gives you more than anything else. The same with hosting your own email server.
>>83818657>it only protects your from your ISP spying on you, but that's already mitigated by HTTPSyour ISP still knows what websites you visit retardand no, DoH or ESNI do not solve this sufficiently

I use windscribe
>>83824504Or just get a seedbox in some shithole country where nobody cares about American copyright. Torrents, avoiding geoip restrictions and evading bans are the only reasons for ever using a VPN.
>>83818606>>83820084I specifically come to these threads and check the archives to see if mullvad has been compromised, still haven't seen anything.guessing it's a good thing that they don't really spend a lot of resources doing advertisement campaigns and they just get free advertisement from word of mouth from people like me.-posted from my windows 7 device with mullvad disabled
I find it intruiging that VPN companies have been able to strongarm all forms of digital advertising into submission with blackhat practices and there seems no end in sight. Offline I don't even know anyone who uses a VPN other than edgecases where someone wants to watch US Netflix etc.
>>83823606of course it is otherwise what's the point of those things

>>83825818This. The Tor node situation is bad, but if TLS was enforced it would almost be a non issue for privacy (maybe a non issue completely?)
>>83825796ah yes, socialist countries are known for their care about privacy

>>83824504Not only a VPS provider will track you (an OpenVPN instance trips all of DDoS checks, for one), but it’s uplink provider will do so as well. Both can and will personalize you. Both can and will work with the law enforcement if needs be. Just simply using your own computer straight through the ISP gives you more privacy, since at least the ISP does not have a physical access to your data.
>>83818461ctrl + f "madaidan" 0 resultsI'm disappointed /g/https://madaidans-insecurities.github.io/vpns.html
>>83825818HTTPS by itself won't necessarily save you from getting your traffic intercepted and your shit leaked (though it does make it harder)
>>83825893You're starting to glow a bit but I'm just trying to explain the importance of a VPN if you choose to use one to protect your data.The website you linked to links to Matt Traudt (Naval Labs, KSU, Tor Project) where he literally explains, "Yes VPNs hide everything about what you're doing on the Internet from your ISP. So does Tor (Browser)." That was exactly the point. Tor is for anonymity AND offers what a VPN offers. A VPN, while being secure, offers a separate attack surface but one that you can also understand better, without knowledge of protocols, knowledge of attack surfaces and without knowledge of secure communication standards or encryption.My point exactly, is that yes, you should be using Tor, but you can use a VPN to simply secure your traffic from your ISP. And, I agree, you should trust your VPN provider AND your ISP but that's not simultaneously feasible and viable for most people.
>>83825912Explain how. Shitty certificate authorities?
>>83825835Haha thats cool but nobody asked. If that were true people using VPNs would be busted every single day for heinous shit and they just aren't>inb4 some schizo everything's rigged, overlord opressive silencing govt blah blah blah
>>83825995meant for >>83825896
>>83825998yep, shitty or compromised CAs. or even shitty devices/applications that do not check the certs or their chain.
>>83825893>Just simply using your own computer straight through the ISP gives you more privacy, since at least the ISP does not have a physical access to your data.you are just routing traffic through the VPN so I'm not sure what you mean with physical access to data
>>83825896>When using a VPN, you send all of your internet traffic to a single server and they can do whatever they want with it. You have to trust them fully not to do anything malicious.well, you can use HTTPS, so you don't have to trust them fully.Weigh it up against>A VPN can provide a privacy advantage since it does hide the websites you visit from people monitoring your traffic and it hides your IP address from the websites you visit
>>83826050Your VPS provider will have access to the VPS on their own physical hardware, just like a VPN provider will. VPS is the same as a normal VPN, but even worse.Let me go a bit in depth as to why. For a VPN provider while a pair of IP/Client is very easy to create the IP itself frequently changes. Hence the entire range is shared among the client pool. Clients themselves are frequently malicious as well. These two conditions make it such that maintainitg IP adress cleanliness is impossible. A VPN provider gives zero fucks that their IPs are rangebaned everywhere. It's not an asset for them. So, the reasons to track you is only to sell your browsing habbits. Which is both costly and risky. I am not saying they aren't doing that, but still.For a VPS provider this is not the case. Cleanliness of the IP address is a huge asset. With a very dirty IP pool a lot of things go bad for a general client, from SEO optimisation, to more benine things, like SMTP traffic being randomly rejected all over the place. Plus, generally they have a lower volume of traffic per IP. Average website generates very little traffic, it's also pretty compact. Most of the traffic (just like most of the hardware load) is generated by the outliers. The other problem is that U/D ratio is reversed, which consequently can fuck with the uplink infrastructure.So for a VPS provider, an OpenVPN instance is a fucking nuisance. A very easily detectable, personifiable nuisance. Consider another fact, all of your traffic is personifiable by both, just as it is by your ISP. The only pro to using VPN is a jurisdiction switch, nothing else. Taking all that in, will you:a) Use a specialised service that caters to your needs, has usually a good operating jurisdiction and a large pool of physical hardware and a poor incentive to track you.b) Use an unrelated service that hates you, operates in a jurisdiction close to you, has a very limited uplink pool and has very significant incentive to track you.

>>83827904In the context of anonymity and privacy Tor does every thing VPNs do, but better and for free. Nobody is using Mullvad or any other commercial VPN for traditional VPN use, RETARD
VPNs are only good for bypassing geo blocks and maybe torrenting shit without being low hanging fruit for civil lawsuits. If you expect any sense of true privacy from a VPN, you're retarded

Hosting your own VPN defeats the purpose of what I want from a VPN.
I use ExpressVPN for torrenting. Is there a better VPN service for just that?
>>83828722if mullvad tells the truth, it should not be shilled by youtubers
>>83828977you're claiming that if it's shilled by youtubers that it's automatically bad? but why? you're saying it means something deeper that is bad even if you can't prove it?
>>83829096same anon. which also suggests that vpns that are shilled by youtubers are all psyop honeypots? is that the implication you're making?
>>83829096>if it's shilled by youtubers that it's automatically bad?Yes, because to fund the shill campaign they probably sell user data to cover the costs.
>>83829129How do you know they're paid to shill it?
>>83825999basically the NSA doesnt give a fuck about the heinous shit you do online. NSA is very weird and is on par with just a data hoarding mindset currently. it is most likely for neferious means such as shutting down future politicians from rising to power with the permanent inclusion of all posts from everyone and everything and generating a profile of every single person online in the united states and in neighboring countries. So you end up with a blackmail file on literally everyone. or its there to help create a predictive AI that can predict into the future to a short period of time.But the reason I say the NSA doesnt help out with investigations is that the NSA has repeatedly shut the FBI down when they asked for help.
>>83829148Not sure if retarded or b8, but do you even know how affiliate programs and in video ads work?
>>83818469>mfw using my bank card for monthly 12$ VPNshould I have used a prepaid card instead?
>>83829220not the anon you just replied to, it makes sense but regardless i haven't seen anyone advertise for mullvad, i don't think i've seen a single person even mention except for security related channels and i don't think they are getting money for it, they just mention it because it's the top vpn in terms of security
>>83829308yes stupid ass
>>83829220mullvad doesn't have an affiliate program AFAIK. I've never seen an paid ad for them either. I have heard it discussed generally from youtubers talking about VPNs, or on VPN review sites. However, if either get paid for talking about it, they're supposed to disclose that because of FTC rules.
>>83829451>>83829633I may have missed a few posts, but I don't think anyone was accusing Mullvad of being shilled, it was the more mainstream ones like Nord and Express and Mullvad was being used as an example of one that's not shilled.
>>83818461At this point wouldn't it be easier to just stop using the internet?
