You could purchase a seedbox for like 10-15 bucks a month and simply setup a reverse SSH proxy.
Which would get you around geoblocking, etc. You’d have faster speeds than using a regular VPN provider probably… plus, your own personal SFTP server
Convenient, yes. Fully anonymous, probably not? Do they take payment from an un-verified paypal account? If not, paypal payments link your seedbox to your identity.
If it’s all about the privacy aspect - buy some bitcoin using cash money - set up a TOR connection at a local library, spend the bitcoin on a subscription to an anonymous VPN server that accepts bitcoin payment, never use bitcoin wallet again. Set up VPN at home and for your phone (!) and keep encrypting all your traffic anyway.
Yeah, a seedbox is clearly not a solution for actual privacy… but if you want to get around geoblocking, a work firewall, or even secure all outgoing traffic (on the local network at least) then it’s for sure the easiest/best solution out there IMO.
Also lol @ blackphone… forgot about that thing. Isn’t it closed source and has a closed baseband?
Tom, all phones have closed basebands because they’re such a kludge of 20 years of hacks to work with 34324 frequencies and are very insecure, if anyone open sourced a baseband, black/white hats would have a field day.
The bigger issue is that the Abbot gbment are such fucktards. They’re pitching something they don’t even know the basic terms of, their own intelligence has made it clear policing and keeping track of this will be impossible, cost far more than it’s worth and is totally ineffective.
The biggest threat to national security is the goons running the show … or more correctly, running the show = starting a new buzzword to implement dumb policy without rational basis or merit and thus create perpetual paranoia. It’s because of dumb shit like this that I finally left the US to come back to Oz, now where do i go?
I think I’m gonna run over Abbott riding his bike with my car and get off with a caution because it was an accident.
Maybe then this country will stop chasing ghosts & boogie monsters and actually serve and protect citizens from real threats.
I’ll make sure I’m wearing a FOA cap at my arrest, trial and all media appearances.
Spirito, start a go fund me type of thing, I’ll pre donate $50 to your trial. Have your lawyer reference every cyclist killed by an at fault car without major charges and drag it out for weeks. Sell story to media = Profit?
I’m a tech noob but am interested in a VPN. Am I right that if you have a good setup you can browse without your employer or service provider knowing where you have been? (So they just see you went to the VPN in your browser and nothing else?) And if that’s the case does that also block things like google ads popping up crap which you have recently searched?
