Thanks for the reply. I know - I wasn't recommending HMA. I stopped using it years ago, after I found out that they had shared logs with law enforcement in the UK. To clarify: I don't use really TOR to surf the deep web - you can use it for the regular web as well. In fact, it's what I'm using right now. It works by encrypting several outer layers of your internet traffic (hence the term "Onion Router", as I understand it) and therefore the intelligence service would basically have to control all the different nodes you are going through. However, it is not completely safe either and I would agree that it is better to pair it up with some kind of VPN as well, which is why I'm currently looking at renting a VPS and basically making my own. I think the "DIY" approach is probably best, because I honestly don't trust any of the major VPNS, except perhaps if they are located outside of the Five Eyes countries, at this point.and some of the TOR servers are operated by intelligence services.
I only would use TOR together with a VPN service to surf the deep web.
HideMyAss is no good recommedation as they keep logs.
No, he didn't say this. Why did you change his comment? That makes your post looks dubious.aurum said:
I've been pleased with Relaska vpn's service
Interesting, I believe they were Denver, US based (head office). Been using PIA nearly a year with brave browser on Linux Mint and seems OK, although recently their servers here in Australia got flagged as suspect by a lot of international websites I was accessing, and I kept on getting captcha challenge-responses, just run of the mill websites I usually visit. Well at least that is what I think happened. Around early August I think it was, has not happened since.Had PIA which was nice but they got bought out by some Israeli firms which has suspect history or making malware.. so I wouldn't trust them. Found a new one but miss having a browser plug in.
