The events of this week just sent this from paranoid option to sensible need.
Here’s what you need.
1 Get a cheap laptop without a harddrive. Not difficult at all. Ebay always has a few of them. They are being rotated out by businesses and they pull the hard drive to avoid anyone getting their data. And good news, they are cheap. Also you DON’T want one with hard drive.
2. Get a VPN. No point in publishing your address. I like Privacy myself but Nord is fine.
3. Use the Tor browser. A VPN is far from perfect and the Tor browser will give you an extra layer of protection.
4. Use Tails as your OS. It’s a linux based OS that runs entirely on your PC’s RAM. And it will remember nothing of your previous session.
5. Keep your OS on a USB stick and always boot and run your dark web laptop off of that.
I’d say we are all in this together but as you know, this isn’t the case.
