Doesn’t make sense, any VPN is easily de-anonimizable, especially by glowies…so if they got your current TOR session - you’re busted anyway :laughing:

TOR isn’t really safe anyway. There are just too many possible approaches to deanonymize user those days:

This doesn’t help, in fact its just as if not easier to de-anonymize you. This also adds another layer of trust you can’t verify. Who is to say your VPN provider isn’t monitoring your TOR traffic?

Is there a way to protect or alert a de-anonymisation, apart of cutting the RJ45 :sweat_smile:

I don’t think so really… :laughing:
Well, obviously it depends on what you’re doing. :male_detective:

For example if you’re dissident in China or investigative journalist going against :clown_face: :earth_africa: people - definitely cut RJ45 :rofl:

Whonix and Tails helps :upside_down_face:
