Hello bigbrained and mentally stable comrades. I need some technical and perhaps also moral support.
Due to circumstances I'm probably gonna have to bite the dust and get a google account and use google drive, under my own name or functionally under my own name as the stuff I'll participate in will be perfectly correlatable to my physical identity. How should I go about this to feed the basilisk as little as possible? Register and use via tor, or VPN + hardened browser? Is it possible to get a google account without giving out my phone number? Any general best practice-type aspects to keep in mind? For context, I use tor browser almost exclusively, stay away from social media etc.

I don't have one. I'm not a target; I'm a nobody. I'm just permafreaked about the promised and already existing horrors of surveillance capitalism and of the school that we should all take whatever steps we can afford to make it as costly and unproductive as possible. Also see my nametag. If you have a support group please invite me

>Is it possible to get a google account without giving out my phone number?
Might be if you don't look suspicious (i.e. using tor, a hardened browser and adblock). You could get a burner phone or prepaid SIM card. There are also internet sites for receiving a verification SMS and google will accept some of them.
>How should I go about this to feed the basilisk as little as possible?
You need to prevent internet traffic from occupying the same tor circuit. Reserve different ports for specific applications and the rest of your system, enable IsolateDestAddr and IsolateDestPort for each. When using google over tor with your real name you have a marginal chance they won't know where you live. I suggest using it over clearnet to avoid correlation with your remaining browser traffic.

Thanks! Clearnet it is.

Does anyone know of one of these that's currently workable? I feel like google might be prone to escalation if I run a series of failed trial-and-errors.

If you're a nobody then you're a nobody for Google too. You're only hurting yourself by not integrating like everyone else

You will eventually find one.

What do you think will happen? Even if you don't use different credentials on every try, requesting your phone number is the most they can do. They mostly make your life suck indiscriminately, like rejecting a zip email attachement containing any source code because it *might* be a virus.

I should have phrased that more concretely. What I imagine might happen is that I (well, any IP my VPN might connect from) will be locked out from using iffy phone numbers for registration. But I shall take your advice, that's what I'm here for after all.

If you are using google drive as cloud storage, then you should encrypt the files on your computer before you upload them to google drive.
As long as you used good software to encrypt the files and used a good password, then they wont be able to see what is in the files unless they know the password to decrypt them.

This is some good software that you can encrypt files and text with:

Alternatively you could use 7-Zip

glowie attempts to do a peer pressure, lol
it's normal to avoid the corporate Moloch, it's the only way to be a full human being

And it's indicative of criminal behavior to collect data about people to make profiles about them, that's what predators do when they prepare to attack somebody. Normal people don't do that kind of shit , and it's human to fend off predators like that.

If you have the technical know-how to disable parts or all of their privacy violation stuff, you should do it because that makes you more trustworthy, because it means you are less compromised.

This is a wrong way to go about it, it will slow everything down not just for you but the whole Tor network. Even worse, it won't do stream isolation when you would in fact want to, leading to leaks. Example: if app A and app B connect to the same destination then they will both use the same stream. But it makes more sense for different apps to use different streams.

A better way to achieve stream isolation is to connect to your Tor proxy with a SOCKS proxy username and password. For example, instead of using just 'socks5h://127.0.0.1:9050' as a proxy address, use 'socks5h://<name-of-app>:<custom-hash>@127.0.0.1:9050'. Then you can achieve isolation both between different apps and also different "profiles" within the same app, without creating too many circuits.
