Is it possible to get access to some form of VPN if you can't afford a monthly subscription? I tried openvpn with some open servers but I'm a techlet and I don't think I've set it up properly, it barely seems to hide anything.

VPN's are dead.
Use lokinet: https://docs.loki.network/Lokinet/Guides/lokinet-linux-guide/

After you get it installed run lokinet-vpn –exit exit.loki –up

Lokinet is like tor but it exists a layer deeper than tor. Tor runs on layer 3 where HTTP requests are handled and lokinet runs on layer 2 where VPN's usually sit, but, it, again, like TOR uses multiple levels of encryption and anonymize your packets. I use it in conjunction with tor and end up with like 8 hops.

Glow

Everyone who isn't a skiddy has heard of lokinet. It's an upcoming network. Only retards and shills advocate insecure bullshit like VPNs. Be gone glow cuck.

>>6539
VPN's are dead because they cannot be trusted. Why would you trust a single point of failure with all of your data? Loki is still young and, yes, new, but, it is worth investigating as, like I said, it works on a layer lower than tor. I highly advocate using them in conjunction. Don't listen to retards like >>6540 who don't even bother to read their man pages.

Anything commercial does deals with feds, better safe than sorry.

Use Tor or I2P before risking anything with this fucking lokinet high school project that doesn't even have a Wikipedia page (no, if it doesn't have a wiki page then it's not a very 1. popular network or 2. reliable/reputable network).
Hell even use RetroShare over this shit.

allready mentioned that I'm a techlet, I tried setting it up a while back buck all I did was put some files on my harddrive and get them to do anything.
All I want to do is torrent some video games with my isp messing arround with the quallity of my connection like my last provider did.

Your argument was…what exactly?

Not a rebuttal.
Tor, like literally every usable computer and software, gas weaknesses. Furthermore, Tor users almost always get caught by deanonymizing themselves or downloading and running things they shouldn't. Either that, or being worth spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on.
Do you have any specific example you want to discuss, or are you just parroting FUD shit you don't understand?

I will say that Tor Browser (not Tor), as a long-life Firefox build, is somewhat insecure if you are being personally targeted, but the best option for anonymity.

nothing wrong with stealing data, if you give them useless data or dont care

>>8655
(not really a reply to you but about what you said) btw for good practice with tor, of course no javascript, dont go to any websites you use on the clearnet on tor, for the same reasons stay away from anything with cloudflare or recaptcha, and dont open anything from tor on the client you run tor on
lesser known good practice is also use a bridge so your tor traffic is less easy to automatically effect, and explicitly set a few guard nodes that you trust, you can set up your own if you really want to
and qubes is really great for this, you virtualize your tor environment every time, so it doesnt match the environment you use for other browsing, and you can open shit in a sandboxed way
safe cybertravels
